Light Concept was established in the UAE in 2007 as a lighting design company and since then has grown in size and extended its capability to become one of the Middle East and North Africa’s leading home automation, digital signage, audio visual and lighting design firms providing services to public and private sector clients.
The firm has its headquarter in Abu Dhabi, U.A.E and an office in Doha, Qatar and Ramallah, Palestine and has completed a wide range of projects locally and throughout the Middle East. Based out of Doha Qatar we have a long history in project based infrastructure solutions both locally and more recently throughout the MENA region.
Sulieman Shihadah CEO of Light Concept LLC in Qatar explains, ‘Our main area of expertise has been predominantly within the LED arena however due to client driven demand we have seen a huge opportunity in the outdoor LCD TV marketplace within malls and other public areas.
Our challenge in partnering with a mainline manufacturer of outdoor IP rated LCD screens was not only the quality of the product (including the ease of doing business with an overseas company) but also of course the harsh environmental conditions that we experience in the region-namely very high 50+ degrees C and even regular sandstorms.
After extensive evaluations of different products, we decided without any difficulty that Aqualite was by far the leading manufacturer of this technology. Their range is wide in terms of size and functionality and the management team are always happy to take time to fully understand our applications. We now specify the Aqualite brand in all major Government Contracts throughout the MENA Region and have clients in Bahrain, Egypt, Iran, Iraq, Jordan, Kuwait, Lebanon, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia and the UAE (United Arab Emirates).’
Kim Menen of Aqualite Outdoor commented that ‘ The Aqualite range of IP rated tv screens are perfect for use in the harshest conditions. Our anti glare & anti reflective screen coatings ensure TV pictures are fully readable outdoors in the brightest sun shine and inside in bright artificial lights. The screens are sealed against dust and sandstorms and can function perfectly in temperatures up to 55C.’
