Catalog excerpts

Correct LCD Enclosure and Digital Signage Installation, Maintenance and Operation ensures Long Life LCD enclosures are a highly cost effective method of using screens in outdoor environments and areas where unprotected screens could be vulnerable to breakdown. From digital signage and information screens to computer monitors and TV displays, LCD enclosures provide an unrivalled return on investment compared to comparable forms of outdoor and rugged display systems. Due to the quality of the engineering and materials that go into the construction of an LCD enclosure, these protective housings for displays can last for years, often housing generation after generation of screen. However, incorrect LCD enclosure installation, improper use and lack of maintenance could reduce its effectiveness and lead to premature failure of the protected device. Installation Correct and proper LCD enclosure installation is perhaps the most fundamentally important thing that will ensure the long life of the equipment and the protection it provides to the display device. An inadequately installed enclosure or one that is mounted incorrectly could lead to all sorts of problems, from overheating of the display due to poor ventilation to an enclosure potentially falling from its mounts leading to damage to both the enclosure and display (and possibly causing injury). Successful enclosure installation always take numerous factors into account | Armagard 2012 All guidelines for this digital signage installation should be followed precisely, and bolts, nuts, gland plates, brackets and other installation items should be the right size and type for the installation. Furthermore, the correct tools should be used when installing an LCD enclosure and health and safety guidelines should also be followed as LCD enclosures are heavy and could cause injury.

should be placed face first on a flat surface, ensuring the screen is protected to prevent scratches. A measuring tape should be used to determine the halfway line and the brackets secured using the relevant screws. While the display should not be secured inside the enclosure until it has been wall or ceiling mounted, it is worth checking the fit of the display to ensure there is enough room.
