Light Concept LLC Aqualite Distributors in Middle East & UAE

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.’

IP66 LCD & LED Screens To Display Arriva Rail Travel Information

LCD and LED digital display screens are the most efficient way to broadcast fast changing travel information and arrival and departure schedules to passengers in the public areas of transport hubs such in airports, ports, train stations, bus and coach depots, ferry terminals, etc.

Sam Russell, Communities and Stakeholder Manager of Arriva Rail in London explains a recent challenge to improve the information  provided to train passengers about other public transport options near their stations.

‘What we were looking for was a solution that would help us to present this information on a safe, robust and easily installed digital display screen, in a suitable location on the station where it was clear and visible.

We decided to install Aqualite’s IP66 digital display screens because the product was an excellent fit for our needs, in terms of protection from the British weather and display quality. Also  the display screens were quickly and conveniently available.

Since the installation we have found that our customers and industry partners value the new information that the screen has been able to provide’

Kim Menen of Aqualite Outdoor added, ‘Our 1p66 rated electronic  screens offer the best display solution for train and underground station digital signage networks.

These high visability screens can withstand  all weathers and can be used to broadcast train timetables and directions at the entrance, in the ticket hall or passageways and on the platforms.

They are also ideal for displaying dynamic advertisements on the escalators and can be used to create magnificent visual effects.’

 

Liffey Meats Display Screens Boost Factory Production by 5%-10%

Liffey Meats pride themselves on being able to respond quickly and efficiently to their customer”s needs and  are always looking for opportunities to use new technology to increase production in their factories.

Liffey1As one of Ireland’s most modern and progressive beef processors, Liffey meats are situated in the centre of some of Ireland”s finest grasslands where they have built a formidable supplier base from quality assured farms which guarantee complete traceability and excellent beef.

Garth Kivlehan, of Liffey Meats explains… I’d seen that rugged screens were becoming available, I looked at a few different displays and for me, this was by far the best display option.

I made contact with Aqualite and I was sold, a few weeks later we’d ordered a 42” screen, taken delivery and installed it overlooking the production hall which specialises in beef de-boning for hind quarters”

“Having the screen works very well for us and has actually increased production; we’ve looked at the numbers and our production has increased by between 5-10% – just by installing it in our production hall. The entire facility and workforce can now, at any given time, clearly see our performance targets, it’s a great motivator!”

“As you would expect we need to ensure complete cleanliness throughout our facility, nowhere is this more important than in out butchery hall where we have the screen, so the great benefit of the Aqualite is that, along with everything else in the hall we wash it every day with high pressure washers, foamed and sanitized daily. We probably have the cleanest Aqualite screen in the county! “

“The beauty is that as the targets are displayed to everyone in the production hall (including Supervisors).  Before we had the screen, it was just Supervisors that were issued with the daily targets, who then had to communicate to our production line staff”

Digital Signange For Liffey MeatsGarth goes on to explain how it’s used….”Shown in the picture is the room temperature (top left corner). We display the time (in the top-right hand corner) the bottom left is the target number of quarters of beef required, in this case at 622 and the bottom right is the ‘actual’ number of quarters of beef being produced at that time, it shows green if we’re above target and a red light if we’re slipping below our yield target.”

“I’m now looking at the possibility of ordering more Aqualite screens,  I’m sure they’re great for outdoor TV but I do think there is much more of a market for these screens to be served as ‘total information displays’ for production facilities”

Kim Menen of Aqualite Outdoor added “It can sometimes be a challenge for companies to develop effective internal communications, the screen at Liffey Meats is a fantastic application and we”re delighted it”s being put to such productive use. It just shows how using an Aqualite screen in this environment, to monitor productivity, can have a direct effect and ultimately increase profit”

All Weather TV Screens For World Cup Football Parties

Stoke City Fans, Luka and Steve Bentley, never miss a game at the BET365 Stadium and with an Aqualite Outdoor TV screen installed in their garden, they and their friends are looking forward to watching the 2018 World Cup Finals this summer, come rain or shine. 

Steve Bentley takes up the story. ”I guess my initial motivation for considering an outdoor TV was quite unusual. My son Luka, who is now 10, has cerebral palsy. His main pleasure in life is watching TV, especially football.

During the summer months, we found ourselves staying inside with Luka, rather than enjoying the garden, and this led me to investigate the possibility of taking a TV outside.

Of course, the main issues with trying to watch a regular TV outside soon became apparent.   The shiny screen and limited brightness meant that it was often difficult to see the picture.

I looked at a number of specialist options, including  weather proof casings for standard TV’s, and a number of purpose built outdoor screens.  Aqualite were the only company with established credibility in this space, who’s products gave me the level of confidence which I was looking for.

The product more than lived up to the hype. It’s always a great talking point, and its perfect for BBQ’s during the football season. Our friends never fail to be impressed; both with the clarity of the picture in daylight, and the fact that the unit permanently resides outside.

I have made use of complimentary technology with my outdoor TV installation, which includes a wireless HDMI transmitter and receiver, and a wireless solar-powered speaker.  It’s a great combination, which allows me to stream content from a Sky or Virgin box, and output the audio to the area where guests are sitting.

I have to admit that I was a little sceptical regarding the units durability, especially during the first winter, which was a harsh one, with considerable amounts of snow.

Also, living in the North West, rain is never far away. I needn’t have worried.  Come the spring time, I switched on the Aqualite TV and it functioned perfectly. That was four years ago, and it has survived every winter since.

I consider the Aqualite TV to be one the best purchases I have ever made, and of course Luka loves it too.  I’m now looking forward to the World Cup 2018, where the Aqualite screen will no doubt provide the backdrop to plenty of outdoor entertainment, and hopefully some success on the pitch!

Kim Menen the managing director of Aqualite Outdoor added, ‘Football is a sport that could have been invented specifically for television and everyone knows that watching the big game is always more fun with your friends.

It’s great to hear how much joy our customers get from the Aquaite range of all weather TV screens and we are thrilled with Luca and Steve’s feedback.

Our screens allow all of the great sporting events to be shared and enjoyed and have even been known to make Port Vale look like a good team.”

Digital Dispaly Screens At Chigwell School In Essex

Chigwell School in Essex installs Aqualite LED digital signage screens to manage queues in the school catering hall.

Founded in 1629 and situated on a 100-acre site in the heart of West Essex, Chigwell School is home to over 800 boys and girls from 4-18 years of age. It boasts top-class facilities across all departments from Art to Sciences and everything in between.

Food and beverage catering for such a large and diverse group of pupils no doubt has its challenges which is where the Aqualite screen comes in.

Positioned outside the school catering hall it helps to reduce queuing times by allowing the pupils to decide what they’d like for lunch whilst waiting in line.

The Standard Brightness 42” Aqualite screen is perfectly positioned under a glass roof canopy so it’s exposed to the elements but on this occasion is protected by rain and snow.

IT Technician Nathalie White has worked at Chigwell School for just over three years and apart from the screen requiring a replacement remote control, has had nothing but positive comments on the screen and its performance.

Kim Menen of Aqualite commented, “Here at Aqualite we are both proud and pleased to have supplied an outdoor screen for the school back in 2010 – which is still going strong and earning its keep.”

“Outside in all weathers, it’s a perfect application for our screen within a large educational environment, I think the pupils here are very fortunate to have this small, but helpful digital menu-board facility which helps to make their day just that little bit easier!”

Tropical Weather Proof TVs In Hooters, Phuket, Thailand

Bar and Restaurant chain Hooters needed four, large screen external TVs to be placed on the outside bar areas that would need to withstand the rain, heat, humidity and all other weather conditions of the the popular Thailand resort destination of Phuket.

tropical-weather-proof-tvAfter consultation they decided on six 42” Standard Brightness screens for their location, (AQLS-42) which have been mounted on exterior walls.

Commenting on the Aqualite screens, Jason Zozosky, Floor Supervisor of Hooters in Phuket said….

“We really love our tropical weatherproof, waterproof TVs.

This week for example it started pouring down with rain with we had a completely full bar. We’ve recently lost 3 regular televisions due to bad weather and if it wasn’t for our Aqualite TVs the guests wouldn’t have been able to watch the big football match that we’d heavily advertised.”

“We’ve recently lost three TVs due to bad weather in Phuket, if it wasn’t for our Aqualite screens, our guests wouldn’t have been able to watch the big football match”
