Digital outdoor kiosks characteristics

How can outdoor kiosk be sustainable? 2 key characteristics of outdoor kiosks

ViaDirect offers several wayfinding solutions to meet the different needs of its customers and especially the environment that requires the installation of our product. One of our solutions is the outdoor kiosk, which orients visitors, passengers and employees outside buildings

It works like a basic wayfinding kiosk, it has the necessary functionality to guide and inform people. Its main difference is its location. Indeed, it is placed outside a building, in order to guide users as soon as they arrive in your complex. It is mainly used by complexes with several buildings, as well as complexes that are spread out in the open air, such as connected districts or open-air malls. 

In order to orientate people and provide them with all the information they have come for, the outdoor wayfinding kiosks has its own characteristics:

1/ Design and durable furniture 

With a view to durability, outdoor kiosk are built with solid materials adapted to the situation and the environment. A kiosk is an investment, but to be profitable, it must be able to last in the long term. ViaDirect wants you to be able to benefit from designer furniture with different ergonomic, modular and above all robust models. 

Available in different sizes, colors, screen sizes and formats, the outdoor kiosks are designed to adapt and be functional for many years but also to avoid any denigration when placed in public places. Indeed, the structure of an outdoor wayfinding kiosk is made of robust elements, by reliable materials and resistant to certain manipulations or acts of vandalism. They also have a finish that allows them to maintain their aesthetic appeal despite their exposure to the weather.

2/ Resistance to climatic conditions 

Outdoor kiosk must be designed in a resistant way, in order to adapt to their environment, including the different possible weather conditions. Therefore, despite the weather, the kiosk will function and be ready to meet your customers’ needs, without the need for additional adjustments. The structure of the kiosk allows it to be readable in the sun with an automatic adaptation of the screen brightness but also to face the heat of the place with a regulation of its heat through the planning of the power of fans, allowing it to be functional from -30°C to +40°C. The structure of the kiosk can also counteract bad weather such as snow, wind or even rain thanks to the respect of standards, using evacuation systems or protection by its design. They are therefore usable in any location and at any time of the year, even when your location is not suitable for visiting, once the climate improves, your kiosk will be ready to perform its functions.
