Common ways to protect your TV

If you’re an outdoor entertainment enthusiast, you know the value of having a TV that can withstand the elements. Whether you’re hosting a barbecue or watching the big game, an outdoor TV can make your backyard gatherings even more enjoyable. But without proper protection, your TV could be at risk of damage from weather, pests, and other hazards. Here are five ways to protect your outdoor TV:

  1. Invest in a high-quality TV enclosure: One of the most effective ways to protect your outdoor TV is to invest in a durable enclosure. Look for enclosures made from heavy-duty materials like aluminum or steel, and consider models with features like ventilation to help regulate temperature and prevent overheating.
  2. Use a waterproof cover: Even if you have an enclosure, it’s a good idea to use a waterproof cover to protect your TV from rain and other moisture. Look for covers made from waterproof materials like PVC or polyester, and make sure they fit your TV snugly to prevent water from seeping in.
  3. Keep your TV away from heat sources: Heat can be damaging to electronics, so it’s important to keep your outdoor TV away from heat sources like grills or fire pits. If you have a fireplace or other heat source near your TV, consider installing a heat shield to help protect it.
  4. Keep pests at bay: Pests like insects and birds can be attracted to your outdoor TV and cause damage. To keep them at bay, use a screen or mesh to cover your TV, and consider installing a pest control system like ultrasonic repellers.
  5. Perform regular maintenance: Regular maintenance can help extend the life of your outdoor TV and prevent damage. This may include cleaning the screen, checking the cables for wear and tear, and ensuring that your TV is properly mounted.

Can you please explain to me what is IK10?

IK10 is a rating that measures the impact resistance of a product. It is typically used to rate the durability of electrical enclosures, such as outdoor TV enclosures, and is expressed as a number on a scale of 1 to 10, with 10 being the highest level of impact resistance. The IK rating system is based on the International Electrotechnical Commission’s (IEC) standard for mechanical impact testing, which measures the ability of a product to withstand impact from a falling object.

In general, a higher IK rating indicates that a product is more resistant to damage from impact. For outdoor TV enclosures, an IK10 rating means that the enclosure is able to withstand a high level of impact and is suitable for use in harsh or high-traffic environments. It’s worth noting that the IK rating system only measures impact resistance and does not take into account other factors such as the enclosure’s ability to protect against water, wind, or other weather conditions.

Do you know what a protective indoor tv overlay kit is?

A protective indoor TV overlay kit is a set of materials that is used to protect a television that is being used indoors. It typically consists of a clear plastic or acrylic sheet that is placed over the TV screen to protect it from dust, fingerprints, and other contaminants. Some overlay kits may also include additional materials like adhesive strips or brackets to help secure the overlay in place. The purpose of an indoor TV overlay kit is to keep the TV screen clean and free from damage, which can help extend its lifespan and maintain its performance.

New air conditioning module

Just tested our brand new mini air conditioning modules for installation into new or existing TV enclosures. Using relatively plug and play procedure and using the easy touch screen interface we set the temp to be 10 degrees and in about 60 seconds it dropped from 28 degrees C to around 11 degrees C. These units are great for TV enclosures and electrical enclosures. There was minimal condensation on the refrigerant which we monitored closely as we don’t want a water build up from this. We believe combined with fan cooling this is a good combination to maintain temperature and not effect the TV inside the enclosure.
