Designing an AV Escape

July 2011
The summer is in full swing and your clients want to be backyard-bound. Keep in mind these cool outdoor entertainment solutions for the steamy days and nights ahead:

Draper Motorized Exterior FlexShades
Draper’s Exterior FlexShades offer protection for your windows, while preventing most solar energy from entering your home for maximum solar heat gain reduction. This also helps protect furnishings and floor coverings from fading.

Motorized Exterior FlexShades can be quickly and quietly positioned with numerous control options, or can be integrated into existing home automation systems. Heavy-duty cable guides or side channels secure the shade fabric against wind and weather, with a weather- and insect-resistant solid aluminum headbox.

Draper Exterior FlexShades are also available with crank or clutch operation. Exterior FlexShades are offered in a wide range of fabric choices.

Klipsch AWR-650-SM Outdoor Rock Speaker
Satisfy your summertime urge to rock out with Klipsch rock speakers. Designed to deliver signature Klipsch sound and extend your living area to the garden, pool, patio and more, the AWR-650-SM speaker has over six decades of audio experience in one weatherized package. Available in a granite or sandstone finish that will blend seamlessly with its surroundings, the AWR-650-SM features a durable UV-resistant enclosure so you can enjoy clean, clear Klipsch sound all season long.

Polk Audio Atrium 5c
Polk Audio’s new Atrium 5c is designed specifically for residential and commercial custom installation specialists who need to add great sound to any environmentally challenging application, with a versatile transformer that allows five different tap settings for distributed line sound systems.

The 5c is a compact, two-way speaker featuring a 5” woofer with a mineral polymer cone, set below a .75” anodized aluminum tweeter. Both drivers feature rubber surrounds for long-lasting durability, while mineral-filled composite polypropylene enclosures and powder-coated aluminum grilles both resist rusting.

The 5c more than exceeds military specifications for environmental stability, with no effect on acoustical performance or structural integrity when exposed to salt spray, extreme temperatures, high humidity and ultra-violet light. The system also has a splash-proof rating of IP-X4 (IEC 529), making it adept for marine and waterside environments.

Runco CP-52HD Flat-Panel LCD
The Runco CP-52HD flat-panel LCD display’s enclosure has been engineered for maximum durability, ensuring protection from adverse environmental conditions, including temperature, exposure to moisture, dust, oils and intermittent direct water spray. The aluminum cabinet is sealed to ensure protection from the elements and features a specially designed internal ventilation system to provide adequate cooling. As a result, the Runco CP-52HD surpasses IP56 weather-proof standards, which will allow you to leave it outside year-round, without worry. Best of all, the Runco CP-52HD LCD display is surrounded by the same elegant look and styling that distinguish all Runco flat-panel displays, assuring you the display is as impressive to look at when it’s turned off.
