Waterproof LCD Enclosures and their Applications

A waterproof LCD enclosure  has many applications and uses. Designed to protect standard LCD TV screens from the effects of water and other hazards, a waterproof LCD enclosure is the perfect solution for providing a cost effective waterproof  TV solution.

Waterproof LCD enclosures are being used up and down the country for a multitude of applications, providing a cheaper and more flexible alternative to expensive outdoor and waterproof TV systems.

Waterproof LCD Enclosures for Digital Signage

Digital signage is one of the fastest growing forms of media. Using LCD screens as a form of advertising, information provision or signage provides an eye-catching, engaging and flexible form of messaging. The great advantage of digital signage is that it can reach huge numbers of people, for a relatively small cost and one of the largest audiences of digital signage can be found in outdoor locations.

Outdoor digital signage provides challenges that indoor systems don’t face, mainly the difficulties in using LCD hardware in outdoor environments. A waterproof LCD enclosure provides a simple solution for protecting standard LCD screens in outdoor locations. The enclosures don’t just keep LCD screens dry, effectively turning them into a waterproof TV, but also they maintain a stable internal temperature so the LCD screens don’t overheat in the summer or freeze during the winter.

From railway platforms that want to provide customers with  timetabling information, schools and colleges wanting to communicate with people entering the building, to retailers wanting to display promotions and offers to passing crowds, a waterproof LCD enclosure provides an effective form of outdoor digital signage for all sorts of businesses.

Waterproof LCD Enclosures as Industrial Monitors

A waterproof LCD enclosure is also ideal for factories, distribution centers and other industrial areas. Many of these locations utilize water as means of cleaning, and these sorts of wash down areas are not suitable for standard LCD hardware. By housing a normal LCD TV in a waterproof LCD enclosure, the screen is protected from any water ingress. Furthermore, the temperature control enables use in even chilled environments or next to machinery that generates high levels of heat.

Once enclosed, an LCD screen in these areas can be washed down along with the rest of the equipment, making them ideal for food production facilities and other areas where wash down is a common occurrence.

Waterproof LCD Enclosures for TV

Using a TV outdoors is becoming a common concept, especially for bars and pubs that have to obey non-smoking legislation. Keeping people entertained outdoors can help with customer retention but many outdoor TV systems can be highly expensive, making it difficult to get a return on investment. Because waterproof LCD enclosures house standard LCD screens, they are a cost effective way of installing a waterproof TV. Furthermore, because the enclosures can last for years, they can house many generations of screen, providing a long-term investment.

And it’s not just businesses that want to use a waterproof TV, as having a TV outside is a great way for householders to enjoy their back yards and gardens. By installing a waterproof LCD enclosure, a cost effective and secure outdoor TV can provide entertainment for barbecues, parties, or for just relaxing in the sun and watching your favorite TV shows.
