Indoor-Outdoor Shade Monitor Hoods: From Tradeshows to Shop Floors

December 7, 2020 | By Jolynn Paige

New to Photodon:  Grease, water, and dirt-resistant, these indoor-outdoor hoods are made specifically for your device. 

Using a digital device of any size in brightlylit environment can be tricky because the glare makes it difficult to see the screen, right?  Plus, bright light and reflections can make the eyes hurt and cause headaches – which is no bueno.  Not only that, but greasy hands or dirty work gloves do not play well with fussy materials.  Think waitress and waiter stations at an outdoor restaurant or industrial monitors mounted on a shop wall.   

Perfect for damp conditions: Our versatile corrugated plastic hoods are built for indoor and outdoor use and are designed to reduce glare and protect from splatters on your screen.  This material is well-equipped to withstand damp conditions, making it a great choice for exposure to rain or wet industrial environments. 

Low-cost and customizable: Photodon indoor-outdoor shade monitor hoods are low-cost and completely customizable.  The hoods are ideal for use on the warehouse floor and in other industrial settings where operator screens need to be shaded from ambient light The hood materials can withstand use in a dirty, dusty, and/or damp environment, providing some degree of monitor protection.  These hoods also offer some privacy from side-viewing. 

Suggested Uses: 

* Machine Shop monitors

* Cash Kiosks 

* Voting Booths 

* Trade Show Monitors 

Easy Installation: The light-weight 3/16” corrugated plastic attaches with adhesive-backed dual-locked strips suitable for installation on stand-alone and in-set screens.  Because the hoods are lightweight, they can easily be installed on a wall or rest on the edge of large-screen displays (think tradeshow floors).  The standard hood depth is 12 inches; however, for an additional charge, the depth can be altered from 6-24 inches based on your specifications and can be built to a width of up to 96 inches.  The hood can be notched/cut out to allow access to ports for USB and HDMI access—contact customer service for this option.

This custom-made drone hood is 100% made in the USA and helps the drone operator see the screen when working in the bright sunlight.
The corrugated plastic body and plastic edges make these hoods lightweight which are resistant to rough handling. They anchor with dual-locking adhesive strips and can be mounted in a variety of ways.
Photodon in-door out-door hoods are constructed for a perfect and snug fit.
