What To Think About When Buying...A Waterproof TV

Waterproof TVs can be defined over a widespread area from being fitted indoors in kitchens and bathrooms, and more specifically within showers, and then also outdoors for home personal use or on a commercial level for public houses and beer gardens.

With the range of products we stock at BuyCleverStuff, we are confident from the years of experience we have, that we deal with the best products on the market which have passed all the relevant safety and compliance testing.

We stock Waterproof TVs in various sizes to fit most spaces, but to be sure of exactly what you want and need, read through our guide below to help decide on your perfect solution.

  • Purpose

You've had in mind purchasing a Waterproof TV or a Waterproof TV Enclosure - but what is it you hope to get out of such a product?

Perhaps you want to relax in your bathroom, shower room or find yourself in the kitchen missing out on your favourite programmes, our fully recessed televisions can be the best solution to cater for this. 

We do have larger screens for larger bathrooms and kitchens should you require, but there are differences between sizes and functions which we will outline late.

If your needs are more for outdoor use, then our range of larger outdoor waterproof TVs are a fantastic option, as well as our Waterproof and Vandal Resistant Outdoor TV Enclosure which can utilise a television set you already have or one of your own choosing to install, safely and securely.

  • Size of speakers / room

For most bathrooms and shower rooms, our 19" to 26" televisions will be a suitable size to install, but if you want a larger screen and have a larger space, we have screens of 32" and upwards.

Our 19" to 26" Waterproof TVs come with separate ceiling speakers. This allows you fully recess your television into your wall space to give a flush, neat finish. Larger screens do not come with additional speakers.

Our Waterproof and Vandal Resistant Outdoor TV Enclosure from TV Shield is best suited to be situated outdoors or a large indoor pool / jacuzzi / sauna area. This option is handy as it allows you to use your own television within the unit, so you can decide upon what size of television rather than our other defined size of television we offer.

Such a product is also useful on a commercial level as it is vandal resistant and lockable, giving you extra security and peace of mind.

  • Functions

Across our range of Waterproof TV products, there are varying functions between each product,

The TV Shield Waterproof and Vandal Resistant Outdoor TV Enclosure as previously discussed allows for your own television to be fixed in position within the enclosure.

They are lightweight, from 6.8-13.2kg in weight depending upon size selected. 

They feature two keyed and chambered locks to prevent theft, and are able to withstand both hot and cold temperatures, are shatter resistant and comes with optically clear LEXAN Polycarbonate to give you a brilliant viewing area.

Extras to help maintain the product include moisture gel, cleaning kit, energy film to protect the television within, 2” Spacing Kit, a heater kit for winter and a fan kit for summer.

Freeview TV tuners are built in to all of our Waterproof TVs available on our website.

Our selection of units from 19" to 26" include ceiling speakers as they are meant to be recessed fully into your wall space.

The range of TechVision Waterproof TVs also have the ability to connect a separate Bluetooth receiver, meaning not only can you watch great television, but you can also connect your personal Bluetooth device and stream your music collection. There is also the ability to connect via HDMI with the available input.

Condensation on your Waterproof TV need not be of any concern, as the heat generated from the components safely prevents any misting from occurring on the screen.

  • Appearance

Depending upon your needs and requirements and what product you actually choose to purchase is to how your product will appear once installed.

The Waterproof and Vandal Resistant Outdoor TV Enclosure from TV Shield will look very bulky and commercial, but it must be remembered that you have more freedom of choice with your screen.

Although a Mirrored Waterproof TV looks great when installed, we always make it apparent of the constraints of this style of TV.

Mirrored Bathroom TVs have a semi-reflective / semi-transparent coating on the glass, meaning the mirror is not a bright full reflective mirror and you can still see the TV behind the glass when switched off.

As well as the mirror not being as reflective as a normal mirror, when the TV is switched on the image is not as bright either as it needs to get through the mirrored coating on the glass. Finally, as mirrors are reflective then a Mirrored Waterproof TV is more prone to reflections on the screen, which in turn could affect your viewing pleasure.

From what we have said there, it might sound like we don't like Mirrored Waterproof TVs, which is definitely not the case, but provided that they are installed in a suitable location where possible reflections are minimised then a Bathroom TV with a Mirror Finish is a great addition to any bathroom.
