LG Electronics has unveiled a pair of highly durable monitors protected with an extra-thick hard-glass screen.
The new L42PP series has been designed specifically for use in settings such as public libraries, schools, internet cafés and airports, where the screen can be subjected to a fair amount of wear and tear.
Most monitors are covered in an acrylic material with an MOHS hardness rating of 2H or less.
However, the tempered glass which covers the new LG panels has a 7H hardness level.
During testing, the LG team dropped a 0.54kg steel ball onto the glass surface and it remained unscathed.
"Computer equipment is a vital resource for education, so it is important to introduce technologies that are designed with younger audiences in mind," said Fiona Landsberg, IT marketing manager at LG.
"These new monitors are ideal for public places such as internet cafés and libraries where computers are used by numerous people each day.
"The extra-thick glass used on the L42PP range protects the screen from those everyday knocks, so organisations don't need to endure the cost of replacing their monitors so often."
The L1942PP and the L1742PP have a 19in and 17in screen respectively and an aspect ratio of 5:4.
The screens boast an 8,000:1 Digital Fine Contrast ratio and a 5ms grey-to-grey response time.
The new screens are due to hit shelves in the UK in August, but pricing is unconfirmed.
