Rethiking Outdoor Digital Signage in Light of Recent Extreme Weather Events


In the context of global climate change, extreme weather events are becoming increasingly frequent. According to the World Meteorological Organization (WMO), natural disasters have significantly increased over the past 50 years due to climate change. In 2023, India, Pakistan, and Nepal experienced multiple flood and storm events, Japan faced its hottest summer on record, over 70% of Chinese national meteorological stations recorded temperatures exceeding 40°C, and the United States endured a deep freeze cold snap…

Whether it’s heavy rainfall, extreme heat, or freezing temperatures, these extreme weather conditions pose a significant challenge for outdoor digital signage. The ability of digital displays to function properly in such extreme weather is crucial for outdoor digital signage.

Extreme Weather Challenges

Extreme weather events such as heat waves, heavy rainfall, storms, and dust storms can pose significant challenges for outdoor digital signage. High temperatures can cause regular displays to malfunction or even melt, rendering them ineffective. Heavy rain can damage unprotected screens, leading to expensive repairs or replacements. Dust storms can clog ventilation systems and compromise the overall performance of signage, reducing their lifespan.

Our Solution

Recognizing the importance of durability and environmental sustainability, our products are designed to withstand these extreme weather conditions, ensuring uninterrupted service and optimal performance. Here’s how our digital signage solutions address these challenges:

High-Temperature Resistance

Our digital signboards are built with state-of-the-art materials that can withstand high temperatures without compromising functionality. Furthermore, based on the local climate conditions for outdoor digital signage, Uniview Commercial Display has designed two types of digital signage solutions: air-cooled and air-conditioned. The air-cooled solution can operate normally in temperatures ranging from -20°C to 45°C, while the air-conditioned solution is capable of functioning effectively in temperatures between -30°C and 50°C.

Simulated Solar Radiation Test

Even during scorching heatwaves, our advertising displays remain operational, offering reliable and uninterrupted service to businesses and organizations.

Sturdy Casing

The outdoor digital signage from Uniview Commercial Display adopts a sturdy casing made of durable materials such as stainless steel or aluminum. With IPx6 waterproof and dust-proof, this casing is designed to protect the advertising display from environmental factors and is equipped with a sealing ring to prevent water and dust infiltration. By preventing the accumulation of dust particles, our products maintain optimal performance and extend their lifespan. IP-rated displays are tested for their ability to withstand exposure to rain, snow, humidity, and extreme temperatures.

Waterproof Test

Rain or shine, our displays continue to provide clear and vibrant visuals, ensuring effective communication and engagement with the audience.

Impact-Resistant Glass

Outdoor digital signage is vulnerable to potential damage caused by vandalism, accidents, and environmental debris. To minimize these risks, Uniview Commercial Display has incorporated IK10 impact-resistant glass panels into the design, which effectively shield displays from impacts or scratches. The use of toughened glass, coupled with anti-reflective coatings, enhances durability while preserving optical clarity and touch sensitivity.

The weatherproofing capabilities of outdoor digital signage extend beyond the display enclosure and include sealed connectors and components. Connectors, cables, and internal electronic devices are all protected to prevent moisture and dust infiltration, ensuring reliable operation in outdoor environments. Sealed connectors and gaskets prevent water ingress, corrosion, and electrical short circuits, thereby minimizing downtime and maintenance requirements.

Environmental Friendliness

Also, our advertising displays are designed with environmental sustainability in mind. We prioritize energy efficiency, utilizing power-saving technologies that reduce electricity consumption without compromising performance. By minimizing our carbon footprint, we contribute to a greener future for our planet.

As extreme weather events become more frequent and intense, choosing the right outdoor digital signage solution is critical. With innovative solutions, Uniview’s outdoor digital signage can withstand the rigors of outdoor use, and every digital display that leaves the factory undergoes rigorous testing while providing viewers with engaging and impactful content.
