About the Kiosk Enclosure
- tabletop, wall-mount, standup pedestals, thru-walls, portables, outdoors and even POP-style mall kiosks
- You have custom kiosk and standard kiosk designs. 90% of the time it is a standard or a modified standard.
- Custom design kiosks require NRE and design. “Owning the design” becomes another issue.
- Kiosk enclosure design and manufacturers are all over the world. Most countries tend to use enclosures designed in that country.
- In the past, the best looking designs have often came from Europe where contours are generously used. In America better servicing with nice looks tends to be base denominator. The most extensive cataloging of designs has, unfortunately been the Chinese to date.
Kiosk Cabinet Typical Features
- Enclosures are generally 16 gauge steel though mix of materials such as formed plastic and wood trim are available
- High-run terminals like UK Job Centre kiosks where 12,000 were done are injection molded. The number of units counteracts the cost of the initial tooling.
- Rear-servicing or front servicing
- ADA and tip guidelines apply
- Knockout panels for adding component later are rarely used . Just makes for a more flexible standard offering for manufacturers to work from.
- Internally kiosk metal can be unfinished or deburred. After cutting my fingers x amount of times over and over, when I set a deburred internal I always heave a sigh of relief now.
Let’s Ask Google Bard what a kiosk enclosure is…
You can see the AI has the mistaken notion that plastic is used as an enclosure. Standalone components certainly utilize plastic (cheaper is naturally cheaper). We’ve never see “in ground” kiosks but Bard is likely confusing RMUs or remote merchandising units which are structural booths, not kiosks.
A kiosk enclosure is the physical housing for a self-service kiosk. It typically consists of a frame, a display, and a mounting system. Kiosk enclosures can be made from a variety of materials, including metal, plastic, and wood. They can be customized to fit any size or shape of kiosk.
Kiosk enclosures serve several purposes. They protect the kiosk’s components from damage, keep the kiosk secure, and provide a branding platform. They can also help to improve the kiosk’s appearance and make it more user-friendly.
There are many different types of kiosk enclosures available on the market. The type of enclosure you choose will depend on the specific needs of your kiosk. Some factors to consider include the size and shape of the kiosk, the environment in which it will be used, and the desired level of security.
Here are some of the benefits of using a kiosk enclosure:
- Protection: Kiosk enclosures protect the kiosk’s components from damage, such as scratches, dents, and moisture.
- Security: Kiosk enclosures can help to keep the kiosk secure from theft and vandalism.
- Branding: Kiosk enclosures can be customized to promote your brand.

If you are considering using a self-service kiosk, a kiosk enclosure is an important consideration. The right enclosure can help to protect your kiosk, keep it secure, and improve its appearance.
Here are some of the most common types of kiosk enclosures:
- Stand-alone kiosk enclosures: These enclosures are freestanding and can be placed anywhere. They are typically made from metal or plastic and can be customized to fit any size or shape of kiosk.
- Countertop kiosk enclosures: These enclosures are designed to be placed on a countertop or table. They are typically made from metal or plastic and are available in a variety of sizes and styles.

No matter what type of kiosk enclosure you choose, it is important to make sure that it is the right size and shape for your kiosk. You should also make sure that the enclosure is made from a durable material that can withstand the elements.
- Enclosures last longer than the components inside them.
- Kiosk designs are often a family of design so you can incorporate design elements into whichever form factor is being done whether a fully loaded unit or a “lite” unit for example.
