Tablet Enclosure Designed for Impact
Our creative team recently had the opportunity to design and produce a retail tablet solution for a kiosk application at a leading retailer. One of the major challenges of this project was to develop a tablet enclosure that would fit our needs from a user experience, engineering and cost standpoint. We’re very proud of the resulting fixture.
- Steel housing offers a surrounding flat surface to attach decals and graphics.
- Radius edge is elegant but functional. It provides access holes that correspond to critical controls on the tablet such as the power button.
- Display area on the face is cut to restrict user access to only approved applications on the kiosk.
- Pivot arm and threaded rod connector post are designed to provide stability and allow the unit to adjust pitch axis for optimum viewing angle.
- During the installation process only four screws are required to assemble the enclosure.
- Foam inserts are used as shock absorbers when the user taps the screen, and they provide sufficient pressure on the tablet to ensure a snug fit in the housing
- Vent slots along the edge of the housing ensure good airflow and reduce total weight of the fixture.
- Slots located on the back of the housing are strategically placed in areas closest to the device antennas. This ensures maximum transmission of radio waves for achieving better cellular and Wifi reception.
- Side view of the housing demonstrates the slim profile and precise fit we have achieved. The gap between the tablet surface and housing face is minimized.
