Protecting AV panel from kids!
We've had a new AV setup in our main hall, which comes with a faceplate and control panel mounted on a wall. The company that have done the work have not been able to supply a cover, or other means of protecting these from pasties, beans and chips, etc I've searched google but can't find a suitable lockable panel to protect it. Has anyone any suggestions!?
edit: size is about 12" x 12"

Since i don't really know what they look like or size, try looking for a small key cupboard or talk to a electrician about small electrical switchbox and then removal all the internals and cut the back out so that it goes over the face panel on the wall.

That could be the way forward as I haven't found anything else yet

Who put that it in?
Poor workmanship in my opinion. The box isn't even level!!

Yeah, I'd go down a fuse box / electric box cover with a neat cut out from the back. Or see if your friendly CDT department can knock up a small wooden box to your specs.

You have to be careful who you ask here, I've seen some some cracking quality work and some that's definitely bodgit and scarper standard! It's likely we'll be going the fuse box route

Is it just me or is that second panel not even aligned straight? and that top one... it's not even close to where they marked out and they didn't even remove the markings around it...

- Rep Power
Wall Mount Enclosure
You could try something from CPC | CPC - Over 100, 000 products from one of the worlds leading distributors of electronic and related products. . Have a look at part EN55218 which is 400 x 400mm. They do smaller ones as well. Be careful when you are drilling the mounting holes so you don't go through any cables in the wall.

We used an old network walll cab to house ours. Flat on the wall seems nice and neat there.
Couldn't you make a door and flush enclosure with a lock on it?
