We have a wide range of cover glass solutions for signage systems based on LED or TFT displays. The solution we recommend for this type of application is typically based on a polycarbonate base material.
We have decades of experience with custom-colored polycarbonate solutions that live up to strict fire behavior and smoke toxicity standards (i.e., UL 94 V0) specifically for these kinds of applications.
Many of our solutions are currently present on a number of major public transportation systems, especially in Europe. We are proud to have cases such as Luminator Technology Group and Teleste to showcase our expertise in cover glass for passenger information systems.
TFT-based passenger information signage is typically found in bus terminals, train stations, airports, etc.
Readability, durability, and safety are important issues for this application type since the applications are placed in a public environment. Therefore, they often require vandal-proof cover glass solutions.
Something else to consider with outdoor passenger information systems is solar heat protection. We have cover glass solutions for this type of device with UV protection to prevent the unit from malfunctioning because of overheating. For solar heat control, our Glacier™ AR Sun Shade and Glacier™ AR Sun Stop are excellent solutions if glass is a suitable base material for your application.
