Mounting Outdoor Digital Signage Hardware From A Ceiling

Out-of-doors electronic marketing can be located in any position with the correct equipment; however there are some factors to take into account.

When deploying electronic advertising outdoors you have to make certain that the mounting device is made to cope with the weather, for instance you would not want to use an indoor mount as this unquestionably would not be weather proof and these are usually chrome plated that in time will discolor and require exchanging.

The weight of a standard 46″ LCD display is 60lbs, then the media player 3lb and not forgetting the 46″ LCD enclosure (that gives the watertight protection) at 100lb plus the peripherals such as cables, you are looking at a rough total of 165lbs now conventional indoor mounts (for home-based use) are only manufactured to take the screen with no peripherals such as the media player and definitely not an enclosure.

So the mounting hardware has to be heavy-duty, these ranges that are manufactured for dynamic signage use offer a variety of cost-effective bracket solutions for screens up to and including 60″, these can be mounted for example as a lone display in landscape or portrait or in a double format (back to back).

In addition to the brackets the columns can be extended for various height environments, at 4″ increments, the mounting plate for the protecting LCD housing can be angled from being flat to 18 degrees being sure everyone can see the advertising material.

Cables are out of sight in side the column in a cable raceway to make the deployment look neat. The units are made from steel and have a special coating that protects them from the harsh climate in the open air and this prevents them from corroding.

These ceiling mounts have been utilized in football and baseball arenas and even at outdoor music festivals, so that spectators can see the action on the stand if they are too far away or in a location where they cannot see the stage.

Currently there is a business who are developing a reclining bracket for a unique deployment in Florida for 60″ TVs that will be located out-of-doors.
