Looking for Piece of Mind When Installing Mental Health TV Enclosures?

Reassuring health and safety requirements provided by mental health TV enclosures.

How installing televisions, complete with specific mental health TV enclosures, provides the safety and practicality you would expect from the worlds leading manufacturer and provider of TV enclosures.

Mental health facilities are not the prisons of dated Victorian Britain – they are places are refuge, help, solace and where patients can be assured of safety. Something so taken for granted, such as a television set, is a very high risk for accidents, injuries and suicides. Television is an integral part of our everyday lives, for many reasons: educational, news and entertainment and as the format of broadcasting changes, so do screens and their sizes – flat screen LCD, LED and plasma TV’s have replaced the old CRT (cathode ray tube – remember when you knew your parents TV was dying?, yes, the picture was turning green, as the tube needed replacing…) There’s none of that now, in our society of ‘use it and throw it away’, we have no conscience about making a repair – one reason being out of our control, as parts are not available to replace.

But just how dangerous can a TV be? Mental health TV enclosures are designed to contain a television, without interfering with the visual or sound quality. A TV set, even a small one can be lethal if thrown at a person or a shard of glass is a deadly as a razor. Mental health can take on many guises, including anger, violence, physical and explosive outbursts. Then there is the hazard of the cable, essentially used as a ligature for self harm, as can the internal wiring and electrical parts, which can be swallowed for deliberate injury.

Prevention is better than cure: for the additional cost effective price of mental health TV enclosures, the pressure is off and gives piece of mind to the staff and management of the facility. There is no unauthorised access to the TV set, as the only way in is via the specialist locks – not the standard locks fitted to similar, but sub-standard enclosures. Each ProEncltd.com enclosure is designed to withstand a great amount of force being applied to it – including the steel body and the polycarbonate window (acrylic and glass shatters). This can be seen in the following video, which demonstrates the impact on an inferior plastic enclosure.

If it is looked at as an investment to protect a television, then the outlay can be justified – not only will it protect the television, patients and staff, but also diminish faults and damage to the set; reducing downtime to a minimum, as there will be no repairs or replacement needed.
