An outdoor screen offers many advantages for businesses, homeowners and institutions. LCD screens provide an effective, engaging and efficient way of providing entertainment, communication and information in an outdoor environment, but do require protection to sure operability in varying weathers and environments.
Designed for indoor use, most LCD screens can’t operate in outdoor environments not just because of the varying weather elements such as rain, which are capable of disabling the screen, but other outdoor elements too.
Temperature is a problem for most LCD screens as they are designed to operate at room temperature. With seasonal changes, many outdoor temperatures can vary wildly, far in excess of a screen’s operating range.
Threat of impact and vandalism is another aspect of protection that requires thinking about before installing an outdoor screen, especially for screens left in unsupervised and public locations. A damaged screen doesn’t only cost in replacement and repair but can become a hazard in public areas so preventing tampering and risk of injury minimises risk of liability.
