Kiosk Enclosure – Custom Kiosk and Standard Kiosk


Learn about kiosk enclosures such as standup pedestal, countertop (or desktop) and wall-mount. Also thru-wall. Custom kiosk enclosures as well.

The kiosk enclosure is the heart of your self-service kiosk. It houses and provides a base for any and all functions. Self-service kiosk enclosures come in two main forms:

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 Enclosures 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.

Kiosk ROI

    • 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.
