Waterproof TV Enclosure in Wash Down Areas

Using display screens and digital signage can really improve communication within a business. All sorts of distribution and production facilities make good use of display screens to communicate with employees. From order processing to relaying important information, a waterproof TV enclosure is a highly visible and efficient method of communication enabling businesses spread over a large area to communicate to employees instantly.

Waterproof TV enclosures and digital signage displays do have some drawbacks, however. Essentially, a digital signage system is just a TV hooked up to a network, where content can be distributed from a central media player. However, TVs are highly sensitive piece of equipment and are not designed for use in areas where they are at risk of being splashed with water.

In many food production and storage facilities, wash down is an important part of the hygiene process. Machines and food storage areas need to be kept clean, which means that any display screen operating in such an area is at risk of getting wet, and ultimately failing.

Fortunately, there is a solution for enabling TV displays to be used in wash down areas: the waterproof TV enclosure.

Waterproof TV enclosures are designed to house standard TV screens and protect them from water splashes in wash down areas. The waterproof TV enclosure provides an impenetrable barrier that keeps water from the screen, but also still provides air to penetrate inside the enclosure to maintain cooling. This is achieved through clever use of air filtration chambers that permit air to enter and exit the enclosure, but not moisture.

Most waterproof TV enclosure are designed to international standards that denote the type of area the screen can operate in. IP54 and IP65 are common European ratings these waterproof TV enclosures are built to, as is the US NEMA 4 standard.

To prevent corrosion, waterproof TV enclosures are manufactured from either stainless steel, or a powder-coated mild steel that prevents rusting, which is important to prevent contamination in food production areas.

A shatterproof screen also protects the TVs housed in the waterproof TV enclosures. This too, is highly important in food production and storage areas as a glass screen could lead to contamination if it is accidentally broken or smashed.

Waterproof TV enclosures provide a cost effective and efficient method of installing display screens and digital signage in food production and distribution areas, enabling almost any make, model or size of screen to operate in locations where water is used in a regular basis to clean and wash down the environment.
