    TAILOR MADE OUTDOOR HOUSINGS

    With digital signage continuing to expand across all market sectors there is the increasing issue of ensuring it is safe/durable in outdoor climates. This issue is compounded when you take into consideration the size of the screens often required for digital signage scenarios such as; advertising, sharing sporting events, acting as departure boards, rebrands and more. With large screens comes a high risk of accidental damage, dust, machinery spray, high / low temperature ranges and more – so how do you keep them safe?
