Car wash puts outdoor LED screens to an indoor test

An environmentally friendly car wash has been equipped with two outdoor LED screens for customers to watch advertisements as they get their cars cleaned.

The LED screens were supplied to the Niagara Car Wash in Dinslaken, Germany by Innlights Displaysolutions.

Tim Rhese, managing director of illuminated and outdoor advertising company Rhese Reklame which managed the project, said: “This is probably Germany’s most unusual car wash at the moment. We were able to equip the imposing building with everything that advertising technology has to offer.”

Innlights supplied a freely hanging 6 x 4 metre display, which can be serviced from the back, and wall-mounted 5 x 3 m display. Both LED displays were supplied from a uniform production batch with identical colour characteristics.

At the location inside the hall, a 30% brightness setting is sufficient for the LED panels, which can provide up to 5,000 cd/sqm in daylight.

“The LED panels are each supplied with two power supply units and are therefore designed to be very reliable,“ said Reinke Clement from Innlights Displaysolutions.

The LED technology is monitored 24/7 by the Wuppertal headquarters of Innlights, a service it provides for many of the projects it works on.

“This represents the highest level of operational reliability for the customer. And for quick and easy maintenance, both LED walls are very easily accessible via front service,” said Clement.

An Innlights Remote Control Application also provides an intuitive and simple way to display and update the content on screen. Image content simply has to be assigned at the Niagara Car Wash headquarters in Krefeld, without any scaling or pixel-precise processing required.

A further LED installation at a Niagara Car Wash location in Mönchengladbach is now in preparation.
