Hey people! How's it going...
I'm trying to figure out how to safely and reliably install an LCD screen (preferably higher than 42") in our church Gym, in a way that it will be visible, but protected from say, basketballs and tennis balls and hockey sticks, etc... Of course, security is an issue too, as it's a fairly public area (locked within a locked building, but during events the gym is always accessible to both the church and the public from time to time, as the park district uses our facility occasionally too).
Any recommendations from other hi-impact area installs? Recommended equipment for cases or ways of installing in this type of environment?
One thing we're thinking about is (if we have enough depth in the wall to do so), install almost flush with the wall, then simply cover with a locking steel plate on a hinge.
Point is, I want to avoid "the prison look" as much as possible, yet still be as secure as reasonably possible.
Also, advice on how to "cushion" within the case or wall would be great. I obviously don't want to insulate the thing, so it's going to overheat, but I want to make sure it's fairly snug/soft so if a ball takes a particularly hard hit to the case or wall, it's not going to rattle the thing around too much.
Thanks for your time and thought/input. Thanks!
