How does it work?
Your TV is protected from the elements inside a weatherproof lockable case that keeps the rain, dirt and debris out of your TV. The enclosure is pre-wired so you plug your TV into the enclosure, and away you go.
The enclosure’s intelligent sensor system monitors the temperature inside the case and turns fans on and off as required, to keep your TV working at the correct operating temperature. This extends the life of your TV.
Lastly a locking system keeps the TV safe from theft and vandalism. Check out the explainer video here for more detail.
Why buy a SealTV outdoor TV enclosure?
We have designed our enclosures from the ground up to be the most affordable solution to installing a television or digital display outside, and we have done it without sacrificing quality. In fact our enclosures have more features than our international competitors and we still beat them on price.
Designing and developing enclosures is all we do, so we have gotten very good at it.
How is it mounted?
We supply a heavy duty VESA mount to secure the enclosure to your wall.
Our mount is galvanised and powder coated so it's suitable for installation outdoors. The mount is rated to carry both the weight of the enclousre and a standard television inside.
Does it need to be installed under cover?
No, it doesn’t need to be installed under cover as the enclosure is weatherproof. However, we always recommend installing in a location that gets shade, so you don’t have to contend with glare from the sun.
Can it take direct sunlight?
The enclosure itself has no problems being installed under direct sunlight. However we do not recommend this for a couple of reasons.
- Unless you keep the enclosure powered up 24/7 (to allow it to cool your television even when it is not on) the TV inside may overheat in direct sun.
- The liquid crystals inside an LCD panel can solidify under direct sunlight, causing the panel to darken as the liquid solidifies.
- Glare caused by the sun can reflect off the TV and enclosure detracting from your viewing experience.
For these reasons, you should install your TV and enclosure in a position where it faces away from the sun for as much as possible, or at least for the times of the day that you most likely will be watching it.
How does it block out rain?
Our patent pending design, utilizes a double seal system, making it impossible for water to enter the enclosure. Should the first seal fail, the water would need to both literally defy gravity just to get to the second seal, let alone breach it.
Is it weatherproof?
Yes, SealTV television and display enclosures are rated IP56 for ingression protection. IP56 is defined as limited ingress of dust permitted (no harmful deposit) and protected against strong jets of water. Limited ingress permitted.
Do you offer IP65 rated enclosures (completely sealed and dust-proof)?
We can custom manufacture IP65 (Totally protected against the ingress of dust and protected against jets of water) rated enclosures. Please contact us with your requirements and we design and build a suitable solution.
What happens if someone tries to break into the enclosure and steal the TV?
The enclosure is equipped with two security locks keeping your TV safe and secure
How secure is it?
Your TV is locked inside a steel enclosure with a safety glass exterior. The access door of the enclosure is secured via twin security locks.
How tough is it? Is the TV protected from impact?
We use shock-resistant (toughened) safety glass or polycarbonate sheets for the viewing area. Poly carbonate is recommended for installations where vandalism could be an issue, as it has very high impact resistance and is near un-breakable.
What is the enclosure made from?
The enclosure is made from galvanized mild steel. The gal protects the steel from corrosion. We then powder-coat the enclosure to protect it further from the elements.
Is it made from plastic? Is the case plastic?
No, our enclosures are galvanized and powder coated steel. Other enclosures are made from plastic. Under the Australian sun, even UV resistant plastic quickly becomes brittle.
We tested plastic enclosures but found them to be less efficient in transferring heat away from the television.
The thermodynamic properties of the steel enclosure allow it to transfer heat away from the TV as efficiently as possible.
How long will your enclosure last outdoors?
The enclosure is built to last a very long time. We anticipate you will be replacing your TV before you replace the enclosure.
Does it come with a warranty?
Yes, we offer a 12 month manufacturers warranty.
