It seemed like a typical case at first, when a Government Department in Brisbane asked for 38 specially fitted Led Signs installed for elevators in 8 different buildings. The certain fire ignited within Queen Towers when project manager Tom Hutting at Telstra had to make this great delivery. Telstra brought in Customized Led as a supplier of Led Light Signs for the screens. We met up with the customer to get the full story about the job that finished early this year.
The client needed Digital Signage
A large Business in Eight Mile Plaines Technology Centre wanted to put screens instead of billboards in their office park, and in their elevators. Tim wanted to know if he could get Custom Led signs that would fit in the elevator shaft.
“I needed information and what was possible and what wasn’t”, Tim explains. “I just had to know if I could use Customized Led products for this project because we had a competitor that approached the client with a promise of delivering 4-centimetre deep displays. Customized Led offer 8 centimetres – so it had to be custom made”.
Saving money in daily operations
Eight Mile Plaines Technology Park had advertising and lunch menus in all of their elevators. Being an office complex, this adds up when it comes to maintenance. They had to switch out all of the information weekly putting this extra pressure on the restaurant staff in particular.
Also, every time a tenant leaves or enter the Business Park they had to call their advertising agency for new billboards and get people to put them up. Obviously, this costs money. A screen solution enables them to do everything from a laptop over WiFi
“There is always a concern with screens in elevators though, Tim tells. They are in heavy use and the freight companies pose a risk of breaking the technology with heavy shipments. The answer was a sturdy but elegant casing around each screen provided by Customized Led.”
