Israeli glass fabricator Oran Safety Glass (OSG) has launched ScreeneX glass-embedded digital displays, which – when fitted to buses and trains – make the most of valuable, but unutilised, real estate in transport and retail, namely glass windows, doors and partitions.
The ultra-slim digital displays are embedded into standard glass units, transforming these areas into information and signage solutions for communicating with passengers. The surface of each side of the screen is as smooth and clear as conventional glass, so it does not impact aesthetics or safety.
ScreeneX technology can also be used for divided frame windows on buses and trains. A non-opening unit is fitted to the upper part of the window, which gives all the benefits of digital signage without the need to replace the entire window should an issue arise.
These displays can be used in rail and bus terminals, stations and on platforms. OSG claims that the displays are highly resilient to vibration, changes in temperature and humidity, and (South African companies will be pleased to know) vandalism.
