Challenges & Solutions
Potential Bridge Strikes: Due to the location of the displays, there is an increased risk of bridge strikes which can lead to LED modules breaking away from the cabinet and falling into the roadway. To reduce this risk, we proposed that a safety wire be looped through the handles of the LED modules at the rear of the cabinet and secured to the secondary metal frame.
Vibration tremors caused by trains: The harsh vibration tremors caused by passing trains posed a large threat to the safety of the displays and their LED modules. To combat this issue, CT installed a shock mount system to the bridges to reduce the vibration shocks and the wear and tear of the display over its lifetime.
Brightness: With the outdoor screens, there is a risk of content appearing faded and unreadable in full sunlight. To solve this issue, there is a system installed that detects ambient light and sends a signal to the LED controller, causing the brightness to be automatically adjusted to suit the time of day, sunlight and weather conditions etc. Absen outdoor LED displays come with a longer shade mask fitted to the LED modules which prevents sunlight hitting the LEDs directly.
