What Is the Best Product to Protect a LCD Screen? A Protector or Enclosure?

Deciding whether a screen protector or enclosure is the best product to protect your television screen largely depends on where the television is being used. It is important to point out: screen protectors and TV enclosures are two completely different products. While both do help protect the television screen from accidents, LED, plasma, and LCD screen protectors are normally sufficient for most types of personal use at home, and television enclosure solutions are more appropriate for businesses. You are free to choose from either type of solution and are not limited to one or the other. Just be aware that protective TV enclosures tend to cost much more than screen protectors, so if you are looking for a cost-effective solution to use at home to protect your LED, plasma, or LCD screen, a screen protector is the better choice. On the other hand, if you are concerned about accidental damage and theft of your HDTVs used in high-traffic areas at your business, you will want to use television enclosures, instead. How Do I Install a Screen Protector for My LED, LCD, or Plasma TV? Properly installing a screen protector requires measuring your television screen and ordering the correct size. If you are not sure what size to order or how to measure your TV, contact us, and we will gladly assist you with this process. We understand the shape, size, and design of televisions is constantly changing and evolving. We are able to custom manufacture protective TV covers to your exact specifications, like if your HDTV includes a built-in camera, or you have installed a camera and attached it to the top of the TV. After you receive your TV Armor screen protector, we recommend you review the installation instructions before you install it. The flat screen TV enclosure is secured in place using Velcro and special pads to create a small gap between the television screen and protector. There must be a gap in order to protect against accidental impacts to the screen. If you do not leave the gap, and the protector directly touches the LCD TV screen, it will not function correctly. Is Heat a Concern When Using an LED, Plasma, or LCD Screen Protector? Most modern LCD screens give off very little heat, and remain cool to the touch, even after they have been in operation for numerous hours. This is because LED lights are used in conjunction with the liquid crystal display, rather than fluorescent backlights. If you have an older LCD television or a plasma screen, heat is easily vented away from the TV screen by leaving a larger gap in between the screen protector and television screen than is required for LED TVs. If you let us know you require a larger gap, we include extra Velcro and pads with your screen protector.
