Promethean recommends that ActivPanels are installed with at least a 10cm gap at the bottom and the sides of the ActivPanel, and a 30cm gap at the top to ensure adequate room for ventilation. The ActivPanel's backlight generates heat, so it is important to ensure that there is enough room for cool air to come in below the ActivPanel, and for hot air to be ejected from above.

It is also important to note that the ActivPanel should not be enclosed in such a way that airflow would be restricted.
