Almo Professional A/V First U.S. Audiovisual Distributor to Carry Armagard’s Affordable Flat Panel Enclosures4 min read
24-Inch to 52-Inch Enclosures and Mounts For Digital Signage; Freight Promotion on all Armagard Purchases; Armagard to Exhibit on E4 AV Fall Tour
Almo Professional A/V, the nation’s fastest growing Pro A/V distributor is the first U.S. audiovisual distributor to supply affordable flat panel enclosures from UK-based Armagard Ltd. Almo Pro A/V and Armagard are offering a ground shipping promotional discount on all enclosure purchases through September 30, 2011. Armagard also will participate as an exhibitor during Almo’s fall E4 AV training and networking tour.
“To get the most out of flat panels, especially for digital signage, they need to be protected so an enclosure plays a very important role in the whole hardware package,” explained Sam Taylor, executive vice president for Almo Professional A/V. “Our partners have been asking for an affordable enclosure for some time now. The Armagard line helps to keep the digital signage system cost-effective while providing environmental and security protection. This gives our partners a true competitive advantage.”
“Last year, Armagard opened a sales office and distribution facility in the U.S. to help expand our offering worldwide,” explained David Robinson, director of sales in North America for Armagard Ltd. “A distribution partnership with Almo Pro A/V was at the top of our priority list in the U.S. because of the company’s dominating presence in digital signage, which is where our products can provide the most value. Digital signage integrators partner with Almo Pro A/V so it was important that we did the same.”
For over two decades, Armagard enclosures have protected flat panel screens, computers, touch screens, and printers from temperature extremes, inclement weather, theft and vandalism. Almo Pro A/V now stocks enclosures for 24-inch to 52-inch flat panels. These products come standard with an Air Curtain™ fan system, a filter fan system, an anti-reflective window, dual lock security, surge protected power and universal mounting, all of which make them ideal for digital signage applications. For cold weather climates, each size is also available with all of the standard features plus an internal heater, closed cell insulation, exterior plenum chambers and automatic thermostats. Armagard also manufactures VESA compatible flat and 15 degree tilt wall mounts and all of the products are available for immediate shipping through Almo Pro A/V.
Almo Pro A/V and Armagard are offering a freight promotion from now through September 30, 2011 by which each flat panel enclosure is available for ground shipping for $50.00 (reduced from the standard flat ground shipping rate of $99.00) within the continental U.S.
Armagard has joined Almo’s E4 AV fall training and networking tour as an exhibitor. The tour, which is coming to Chicago on Oct. 6 and New York on October 27, is a free full-day program with an intense educational focus that allows partners to earn valuable InfoComm International CTS Renewal Units (RUs) while networking in with the industry’s top manufacturers. Since its launch in Dec. 2009, thousands of Almo Pro A/V partners have experienced the benefits of the E4 events and, in the process, have earned nearly 2,500 RUs.
