An Overview of Secure Kiosks & Enclosures

Many industries use iPad kiosks, including hospitality, leisure and retail, as they offer a functional, efficient and organised solution to customer service, point of sale and office and visitor management.

Due to the highly intelligent software that’s integrated and the ease-of-use functionality, tablet kiosks don’t always need staffing. This is a benefit for many businesses, as self service kiosks ensure productivity with fewer costs for staff. However, this does produce a potential risk: who will ensure the tablets or integrated technology doesn’t get stolen? This is where secure iPad and tablet kiosks can help. Designed and manufactured to be strong, durable and, above all, secure, your device and technology is safe housed within a secure tablet stand.

At imageHOLDERS, we design two types of tablet holders: kiosks featuring device integration and standard enclosures. With 15 years of experience and a patent-pending design process, we offer you peace of mind that every secure tablet kiosk or enclosure we design is extremely secure and lockable. You can choose between housing your tablet in a secure tablet stand, secure tablet wall mount or tablet security table mount. Plus, all secure iPad stands for business come with customisation, so we can design it to be on-brand for your business.
