HDTV in the Shop

by wdnickles / September 4, 2008 9:50 AM PDT

Looking to install a flat screen in my school's wood shop. What kind of havoc will the airborne dust play with the unit? Is there any dust-proof enclosures manufactured out there that would not distort picture quality. Looking in the 40-50 inch range. Thanks

well, if you are looking to enclose it, you should look at LCD's. Being a wood-shop teacher, you could probably make some sort of protective bracket. For your application, you probably only need to protect the top and sides. Making a mount and some extra cover plates should be no problem; just run some pine through the router (60 deg bit, or table saw if you don't have that one) and make a cover for the top/sides that extends from the wall. Other than that I see no problem

Do you think I need to protect the front of the TV with plexiglass or are you saying I only need to keep the dust from settling on the top and sides of the TV?
