The ease of installation and even remote calibration today makes LED screens a compelling reason to consider. The cost in recent years has dramatically reduced making them affordable.

In this video we provide a little insight to installing the Plas480 LED panels in a structural rotating frame. The LED panels can be mounted in a variety of ways according to installation environments and this is just one of many ways. In this case they are mounted in a steel manual rotating frame structure. This allows the screen to be viewed in a number of directions and for servicing removal from the rear. Each panel interior can be opened up from the rear in the unlikely case of replacing a power supply.

One person can easily handle the Plas480 panels due to their light 6 kg weight which in turn with a partner on the opposite side of the screen inserting the bolts installation is a no stress affair. This makes the Plas480 panels perfect for the rental market as well as permanent installation.

For installations like in aquatic venues, water based theme parks, private swimming pools or resort swimming facilities, the Plas480 are an ideal choice due the the non corrosive characteristics of the industrial plastic moulded case enclosure. Impossible to rust!

Today’s swimming pool complex is a far cry to when I attended the local swimming pool as a youngster. Unheated part from the sun, timber uncovered audience seating, small in size, timber outdoor changing rooms, two level dive boards, snack shop and all enclosed by a corrugated tall fence. Today we have progressed with stunning facilities with multi lane sports pool, dive pool, a leisure pool with waves and sprays, a tots’ pool and a learners’ pool. And it does not stop there with a water slide, wave pools, dive pools, therapy services and rehabilitation pools, massage facilities, spa pool, steam room and a cafe — all indoors and with off-street car parking.

Until recently only large and well financed aquatic facilities have installed large digital LED screens, though most facilities have a timing clock, or a score board for race meetings. The roll out of LED screens were initially used as digit screens displaying race times however a new trend is developing with the use of the LED Matrix as an entertainment and advertising digital display within the aquatic venue.

Aquatic Centers are dynamic destinations where people meet, have fun, compete and enjoy the magic of water based activities. The community swimming pool complex is an important centre for many smaller town and cities and can play an important role in cohesiveness of a community just like the theatre and sports area.
