    Might be a odd request, but has anyone come across protective covers for LCD screens.

    We are looking to put a TV into a common room at our school, but knowing our kids if we just leave it as is the screen will get scratched/marked etc in a short space of time.

    So we are wondering if we can get some sort of glass/perspect cover to fit over the screen that would protect it but not distort the picture.


    Anyone have any idea if such things exist and if so where I might find one?


    MANY thanks for any info.

    Chicken wire? Fire guard?

    But seriously, I have been thinking about something similar, got 2 boys, 1 who likes to drive his cars up any large flat surface!! Would be interested in a solution to this problem myself.

    A smart slap on the back of the legs for starters, might ameliorate your problem, somewhat. :eek::lesson:

    Otherwise, surely you can find a shop that sells various plastics and therefore buy a sheet of perspex (or similar) and discreetly tape/fix that to the panel - not all that pretty but might be effective.

    I think that is a distinct lack of discipline somewhere, here, although of course I don't know the domestic set-up.

    I ran across this while Googling and it seems like it might do the job

    There are companies who can spray a protective coating on electrical items. A friend had my ipad covered, can hardly tell its on it. Similar to the protective film on mobiles when new but ultra thin. May cost abit tho :(
