Some current hot topics in the car wash industry are car
wash signage, car wash software, and general car wash management systems. This
article addresses top TV and digital signage uses for car washes both indoors
and outdoors with a focus on how outdoor TV enclosures can make a difference.
Outdoor TV Enclosure Car Wash Applications
Here are some important ways TVs and digital signage are useful for car washes and how TV enclosures help.
- Curb side digital signage and brand awareness
- Display car wash software for staff
- Display information such as instructions or menu options at the car wash entrance
- If you have long wait lines, display TV shows for customers who are waiting in the car line
- Use a TV or digital monitor to display additional advertising for your business or sell ad space for additional revenue
- If you have ever wanted to display data, information, or even display TV shows for customers or staff inside your building, but you worry about damage to the TV or digital monitor, an enclosure is a solution for that scenario as well
Software & Signage Solutions for Car Washes
As you surely know if you’re in the car wash industry, it's important for car wash staff to be able to monitor cars as they proceed through the car wash so they don't go off the tracks and slow down the process or cost time and money.
The car wash case study “H2Go Express Car Washes Uses NoPileups™ & PEC™ to Improve Safety & Operations,” offers a great explanation of how software by NoPileups can be combined with Protective Enclosures Company’s The Display Shield water resistant outdoor TV enclosure to create a Load-On Display solution. An outdoor TV enclosure, like The Display Shield, is mounted at the entrance of a car wash tunnel with a TV inside. The Display Shield provides water resistant and impact resistant protection for the TV so it won’t be damaged in the car wash environment. The protected Load-On TV displays all the NoPileups camera views and provides end users real-time status of the NoPileups system.
