Waterproof TV Installation
About Waterproof TV
Waterproof televisions are becoming more common by the day particularly during the summer months when outdoor activities become the norm. They are usually placed around outdoor settings like swimming pools, in lawns and indoor areas including bathrooms and kitchens. These waterproof tvs are categorized according to their IP standard which explains their ability to withstand moisture exposure. Higher IP standards are used for locations where higher water exposure is expected and in relatively safer locations a lesser IP standard can do the job.
Waterproof televisions also come equipped with waterproof cables and complementing speakers to enhance the experience. Many models of waterproof televisions work in two ways; as a television when switched on and as a simple mirror when turned off. Installing a water proof TV requires expertise and the ways in which they are installed vary depending upon the setting they are being used in.
Installation of water proof TV
To make the most out of a waterproof TV in a bathroom or another similar area of a building, it is important to install it at the right location. Users should be able to view the screen from most angles of the room. Once the location has been decided, a small hole will be made in the wall followed by a channel containing all the cables that will help run the television. The hole that is made to install the television does not need to be as deep as the wall but only deep enough to offer support to the TV frame. Later on when the tiling process begins, all the wires will be securely placed in a void in the wall. In case for a future use, a pull through wire can be put in place.
It is also important to take certain factors into consideration when thinking of installing water-proof televisions. The first thing you might want to give some thought to is the weather. It is important to remember that while they are water-proof, there are actually no TVs that will score 100% for water-proof even by IP standards. This means extended exposure to water and moisture could still harm them in some way.
For additional safety from moisture and humidity, a silicone based protection is sometimes wound around the frame of waterproof televisions. This installation methods is preferred for most models of televisions since it damages the walls in the least possible way. In an alternate installation style and depending on the exterior of waterproof TV, magnets are made to fit in a suction plate on the wall which hold on to the television screen more securely and keep it attached to the wall.
Also, safety is of paramount importance. The installation has to be so effective that it is cushion enough against over-ambitious burglars. Lastly, and though not as important as the other factors, aesthetics also plays a major role when installing these televisions. At the very least, you would want to have it installed in a place where it seamlessly blends with the environment as opposed to where it is conspicuous.
