How to Protect your Digital Display

July 5, 2018

Uh, oh: it seems that someone damaged the digital interface of your custom touchscreen display. Although this could be one of the worst case scenarios for any business owner, there’s hope: thanks to Apollo! Whether you’re looking for ways to protect your current device, or you plan on getting a new one, here are some helpful tips to know!

Always opt-in for Optical Bonding

Believe it or not, optical bonding is the best way to preserve your device and keep it safe for the years to come. If you’re looking for the best in optical bonding technology, then look no further than Apollo! Here at Fortec US, we’re the leader in VacuBond® Vacuum Bonding — which is the better alternative to standard optical bonding.

Not only will our VacuBond® Vacuum Bonding act as the most robust shield for your device, but it will also preserve it for the years to come. When you invest in a custom digital display with Apollo, not only will this be the best investment — but you won’t have to replace your device in the years to come.

Limit Sun Exposure

Another way to keep your digital display intact is to minimize its sun exposure. Just like your skin in the summer sun, your device could go through some hardship if it’s left there exposed directly to the sunlight.

Of course, with a custom digital display from Apollo, our VacuBond® Vacuum Bonding will act like sunscreen for your device — but it’s important to limit the heat exposure. Not only will this help keep your equipment cool, but it will also help preserve it in the long run.

Be Cautious of the Elements

Of course, custom touchscreen devices that are meant to be outside are equipped with the proper technology to help them survive — but there is a chance that a water droplet could get into the wrong area, causing damage.

If you have an outdoor device, it’s best to check for any holes or minor damages that could build up over time. This will not only help prevent your device from getting hit by the elements, but it’s also the best way to know the status of how your equipment is functioning. On a final note: it’s always important to make sure that all outdoor devices have outlets covered!
