Mt. Pleasant, PA (February 28, 2017) - ITSENCLOSURES, a digital signage hardware expert, installed an all-weather, LCD enclosure at the front entrance of The Frank Kapr Funeral Home. The digital signage displays brief obituaries with visiting hours and also events.

The indoor monitor was mounted outdoors on the front porch railing, but was not a 'high bright,' commercial monitor. For this reason, it was nearly impossible to see during the day. READ MORE

Mt. Pleasant, PA (October 29, 2015) -- For over 30 years, ITSENCLOSURES has been engineering and producing the most heavy-duty and innovative electronic enclosures on the market. ViewStation 'Outdoor Digital Menu Boards' by ITSENCLOSURES have been impressing drive-thru customers for almost 10 years with deployments at many popular quick service restaurants throughout the United States, Canada and the Caribbean.
To stay ahead of the curve and competition, ITSENCLOSURES recently introduced its FOURTH generation ViewStation QSR enclosure line, which is sleeker, more energy efficient and better than ever before.
With a custom base, the brand new Fourth Generation QSR enclosures are manufactured to be easily customizable for stress-free deployment and have the ability to be one, two, three, or four displays wide. Unlike previous generations, displays can now be used in portrait or landscape orientation. What does that mean for the end user?

The Puratos Corporation, in Pennsauken, New Jersey, is in the process of consolidating two plants and upgrading equipment, which now includes IceStation TITAN pc enclosures.

ITSENCLOSURES visited the Puratos plant in February of 2014 to assist in the development of a solution for Puratos pc enclosure needs.

Mt. Pleasant, PA (April 21, 2015) - ITSENCLOSURES is proud to announce another successful ViewStation installation at the Mall at Partridge Creek, located in Clinton Township, Michigan - a suburb of Detroit. The project was originally completed in 2007, when ITSENCLOSURES installed two 50 inch ViewStation Universal enclosures with 4000 BTU air conditioners.
In 2014, The Mall at Partridge Creek reached out to ITSENCLOSURES, once again, to brainstorm the possibility of installing all-new enclosure models. The Mall wanted to upgrade to a more energy efficient solution that would eliminate the need for the air conditioner.
ITSENCLOSURES was tasked to create a custom bracket allowing the existing post (from the first project) to remain mounted in the ground. Partridge Creek also requested that the speakers be incorporated into the front of the enclosure. The previous LCD enclosures had separate speakers mounted on the post (directly under the ViewStation enclosure), which had been vandalized a few times over the years.
The Mall at Partridge felt that the original project was a wonderful investment. Dennis Dettmer, Operations Director at the Mall exclaimed, "The previous units were very high quality units! They performed admirably. We place a term on all assets and this was a seven year term."
With the advancement of technology, ITSENCLOSURES suggested the installation of energy efficient/fan cooled, full sun outdoor LCD enclosures. The Mall unanimously agreed to the state-of-the-art enclosures and installation began in the summer of 2014. ITSENCLOSURES removed the original enclosures and installed the new, energy efficient, fan cooled units. READ MORE

Mt. Pleasant, PA (October 31, 2013) As digital signage continues to grow, so do the number of quick service restaurants (QSR's) making the transition to digital menu boards, especially in the drive-thru.
