Brothers Justin and Jarad King once faced an obstacle, but they saw it as an opportunity. They simply wanted to put TVs on their outside patios, but couldn’t find a reasonable option. Solutions at the time ranged from impractical grill covers for TV protection to budget-buster outdoor TVs costing approximately $6,000 to $10,000. Clearly, those solutions wouldn’t do.
In 2009, the brothers started the business venture of their lives. Determined to develop a better alternative, Jarad and Justin launched Protective Enclosures Company, and worked on a weatherproof, sturdy, secure and economical outdoor TV option. They spent two years trouble-shooting, researching and engineering until The TV Shield branded weatherproof TV enclosure was born. Created by Florida residents, The TV Shield is designed to help prevent vandalism and handle elements of tropical climates including rain, heat, moisture, impact from objects in storms, and insects. A durable and water-resistant TV case, The TV Shield’s ultra-clear front panel easily opens for a direct view of the TV, allowing viewers to watch, protect and secure nearly any TV in almost any environment.
Unlike existing outdoor TVs, which now cost upward of $3,000 to $6,000, or metal TV enclosures, which are often heavier and in the same price range, Protective Enclosures Company’s universal alternative for TV protection boasts a low cost, at 50-75% less expensive. However, PEC isn’t just saving shoppers money up front, they’re also offering long term savings. Unlike a pricey outdoor TV that has to be completely replaced as technology evolves, PEC’s outdoor TV enclosures allow consumers to upgrade their TV with a newer model in order to enjoy the latest technology such as WIFI, 3D, Apps and more. Consumers are also no longer limited to a couple of outdoor TV sizes, because they can pick a 19 inch TV up to a 60 inch to place outside in The TV Shield.
As the demand has grown across both residential and commercial markets, Protective Enclosures Company has expanded their product line and brand portfolio to become the leading US based manufacturer of lightweight, cost effective TV and digital signage enclosures, now offering The TV Shield®, The TV Shield Pro® and The Display Shield®. Designed, engineered and manufactured in the USA, these water-resistant TV cases and weatherproof display enclosures can be found at select Marriott, Sheraton, TGI Friday, P.F. Chang, Houlihan’s, Bahama Breeze and Six Flags parks locations as well as Talladega Superspeedway, Everbank Field (home of the Jacksonville Jaguars), Bryant-Denny Stadium (at the University of Alabama), AT&T Stadium (arena of the Dallas Cowboys), Times Square and more. The company now holds an A+ rating with the BBB and has been highlighted by various news reporters and TV shows including Fox News, Lifetime Network’s hit show: Designing Spaces and HGTV’s popular show Spontaneous Construction. From homes, restaurants, theme parks, sports arenas (stadiums), airports, government facilities, universities, primary schools, high schools, correctional institutions, and hospitals to factories, organizations across various industries, including Ghirardelli, Southwest Airlines and others have found a trusted weatherproof TV protection solution in PEC’s products.
PEC’s enclosures now protect TVs and video displays in over 38,000 residential and commercial locations/environments from the US ARMY Institute for Chemical Research, to mines in Chile in 53 countries worldwide.
