Installing the Enclosure
The vertical mounts shown on the right hand side highlighted in "orange" have been preinstalled. They are already attached to the enclosure and ready.
The horizontal bar shown on the right highlighted in "green" is the bracket you need to attach to the wall. Wall can be timber stud, steel stud, brick or concrete. Use appropriate mechanical fixtures where possible - some have been supplied not all.
Once you have levelled and mounted the "green" horizontal bar you can then lift and hook the enclosure onto the horizontal bar
To LOCK the enclosure from being removed use a long Philips head screw driver to tighten the area highlighted in "purple" in the illustration.
Installing the Drainage Plugs & Holes
Portrait Mode - Use rubber plugs in spare parts package to plug up all holes on the right side of enclosure. Leave the bottom holes open
Landscape Mode - Use rubber plugs in spare parts package to plug up all holes on the left side of the enclosure. Leave the bottom holes open.
If you are installing the TV enclosure in direct sunlight and it has no shroud, awning or cover we recommend the following. Because most enclosures are black they will attract a lot of heat, especially in summer and it will also be exposed to 'acts of god' such as heavy rain fall for long periods of time.
For those reasons we are advising you to ensure that there are some draining holes added to the south side of the enclosure just in case some water may enter - the illustration on the right shows an example of how we do that. It is a safety precaution only. We cannot warrant against 'acts of god' or extreme weather conditions. In direct sunlight we recommend you purchase an enclosure in white or light grey and have some cover to assist with performance and longevity of the enclosure.
Note: Applicable to 2020 Hybrid Model portrait & landscape TV enclosures
“To improve the performance and viewing of the TV you should try to mount the TV as close to the front viewing glass as possible - leave at
least a 1cm gap between front of TV and front of the enclosure glass for air flow”.
When the enclosure is closed and locked, if the TV is sitting far away OR far back from the front viewing glass this reduces the
performance of the image/video, thus increasing glare and distorts visual display of the TV inside.
All televisions have different total depths. New tv’s are thinner, but old tv’s are thicker. We do not know which TV you are supplying inside the enclosure. In the example to the right we are showing you a 55” Samsung model that is 60mm in total depth.
Therefore, in order to get the best possible performance from the TV we are using we are going to use plastic spacers and/washers (or similar) to push the TV forward. The illustrations below show how you can do this.
NOTE: Longer bolts may need to be purchased. In the example below we used M8 x 100mm and M8 x 75mm

Before you close the front lift and LOCK it you should align the IR port inside the enclosure and place it in front or near your supplied TV’s IR port. This is so you can operate the TV inside the enclosure with the door closed. Depending on which model TV you have its IR receiver might be on the left, right or middle. In the example below we placed it in the middle as the Samsung TV had it’s IR in the middle.
2. Locate the IR repeater device under the front cover of the enclosure you will see an IR repeater wrapped up.
3. Relocate it to the left, right or middle of the top of enclosure lid. Peel off back adhesive and stick it to the steel (inside the steel of course) tidy up any excess cabling from the IR repeater, image below shows we fed the cable though a channel)
4. Now close the front door. Turn on the enclosure and test the IR and check it operates the TV when enclosure door is shut. If not, please relocate the IR again this time making it closer to your TV’s IR. This might take a few attempts.
5. If it all WORKS ok then you now need to lock the front door.
By default the enclosure is IP65 certified. However there are interchangeable squares that are vented so you can allow more air flow. These vents open the enclosure up slightly so you can make a IP56 enclosure. The IP56 hot swap vents are inside the spare parts pack and clearly labelled. You can swap out all vents or just some, the choice is yours. Make sure in landscape mode the vents are facing the downward direction and the same direction in Portrait mode.
Please take note of the following prior to installing & setting up the TV Enclosure
# Note paint finish does not currently have a 'anti-corrosive' OR salt water primer - therefore if you live near the ocean, have a salt water pool or spa bath the enclosure will rust in a short period of time. We do not warrant against close contact to salt water , close contact defined as within 6km.
The only cable by default that goes in and out of the enclosure is power. This has been supplied and installed by the manufacturer
