Libraries use Screen Protectors to Protect LCD Monitors and Eliminate Unsightly Fingerprints

Bensalem, Pa. – NuShield, Inc., the leading manufacturer of non-adhesive, screen protectors now offers an overlay film that protects the LCD display of computer monitors used in libraries from fingerprints, pen marks and scratches.

Old CRT monitors had glass screens which could be wiped off easily even if someone decided to use a magic marker as they were reading information. However, most libraries today are buying flat panel LCD monitors which take up minimal space, but are harder to keep clean and have to be protected more proactively.

Oily fingers, accidental pen marks, or just small children wiping their hands on the screen can make the monitor look unsightly. The protective coating on the LCD display monitor is not strong enough to withstand scratches made by pencils, pens, fingernails or other sharp objects over an extended time period. The cost to replace these displays is high, especially when the monitors are past warranty.

This need to preserve and protect public property is the key reason that more libraries are turning to NuShield as the solution. With township budgets diminishing, the use of a NuShield protective film can extend the life of the monitor and provide excellent value for the taxpayers. By installing a NuShield anti-glare screen protector film, libraries are taking a proactive step to protecting their monitors against scratches, pen marks and direct contact, as well as hide fingerprints and reduce the amount of UV rays and glare that bounces back onto the user’s eyes from the screen.

NuShield is made from a super-thin material and unlike vinyl-based products that cling or adhere to the monitor, the NuShield film can be removed, cleaned and reinstalled to extend the life cycle of the film.

The non-adhesive anti-glare film is easy to install without worries about bubbles. The film just slips into the gap that exists between the display screen and the casing of the monitor. Once installed, the film stays in place no matter how many fingers brush along the screen. And the NuShield film can be easily wiped off with a cleaning agent to remove pen marks or dirty fingerprints that would be harmful if used directly on the LCD screen.

For monitors without a gap or where the gap is too wide, NuShield places a double-sided adhesive tape around the perimeter of the film. The film works exactly the same way and the film can be removed, cleaned on the inside and easily replaced since the tape has similar properties found on a Post-It note paper.
