LCD Monitor Enclosures – Protection For Outdoor Digital Signage

By | February 19, 2010

Dynamic signage is the fastest growing industry, as more LCD screens are deployed outdoors the need some sort of protection, without protection the signage system will fail.

There are many hazards outdoors for electronic devices, just like computers when they are out of the comfort of an air conditioned office, they need protection. There are displays that are designed for outdoor use; these may be waterproof however in extreme weather they do not stand up as they operative temperature covers from -10 to 100 degrees Fahrenheit they are also very expensive.

LCD screen enclosures offer the maximum protection from theft and possible vandalism and at the same time offer protection from the weather. Some manufacturers of outdoor TV cabinets vary greatly in what they supply, some for example do not supply thermal management of the enclosures, but others offer complete solutions from cooling systems that are integrated into a heating system. These cover a temperature range from -30 to 150 degrees Fahrenheit ensuring that the cases are at the most effective temperature protecting the screens and monitors from overheating.

The best units are the units that bolt directly to walls for maximum security, otherwise a gap between the enclosure and a wall can be used by thieves to prise the case from the wall, removing it and opening the protective box at leisure. Some companies even provide anti tamper fasteners that need a particular tool to secure them adding an extra deterrent to potential thieves.

LCD Enclosure Global offer a special enclosure that has a higher degree of theft and vandal protection, these come with higher specified locks and a totally different designed enclosure – used namely in outdoor locations with little if any security.

LCD Enclosure Global – anything else is a compromise.
