ICE offers two categories of products in this category.
Marine Models and Stainless Steel Enclosures.
As each model is manufactured to order allows us to configure the screen exactly as required such as with and without touch capability, inputs, audio and internal computer.

A point to note is that marine and wet environments LCD screens are categorised with IP65 / IP66 rating for just the front or for the entire LCD enclosure. When you are evaluating your requirements consider whether the IP category rating is just for the front or for the all sides of the enclosure. The next aspect is the mounting and fitting style. We offer a wide variety of installation types including panel, open frame, chassis, rack and external etc. Along with the customisation of 5 touch technologies, signal inputs and built-in computer options means there are 100’s of options, all of which are offered as a standard product and built specifically for your requirements.

The important aspect for Marine and IP65 / IP66 rated LCD enclosures is the Stainless Steel or Aluminium construction. To provide flexibility and customisation ICE offers two options in stainless steel.

For standard stainless enclosure screens we use Grade 304. Grade 304 is the most widely used stainless steel, however in a harsh environment like a high chloride environment, Grade 304 will still rust. Grade 316 is the recommended solution to have better corrosion resistant in the harsh environments. If your application environment is swimming pool, sea shore or anywhere there is high chloride environment or salty environment, you should adopt Grade 316.
Either you adopt Grade 304 or Grade 316, a routine cleaning & maintenance is required to keep the stainless surface in good condition. A stainless steel cleaner & polish is recommended to apply.

Brief introduction to Grade 304 & 316 Stainless Steel.
Stainless steel Grade 304
Grade 304 is the most versatile and widely used stainless steel. Grade 304 stainless steel is an austenitic grade that can be severely deep drawn. This property has resulted in 304 being the dominant grade used in applications like sinks and saucepans. Sometimes this grade is called by its old name 18/8 which is derived from the nominal composition of Grade 304 being 18% chromium and 8% nickel.

Stainless steel Grade 316
Grade 316 is the standard molybdenum-bearing grade, second in importance to 304 amongst the austenitic stainless steels. It has excellent forming and welding characteristics. It is readily brake or roll formed into a variety of parts for applications in the industrial, architectural, and transportation fields. The molybdenum gives 316 better overall corrosion resistant properties than Grade 304, particularly higher resistance to pitting and crevice corrosion in chloride environments. Grade 316 also has outstanding welding characteristics. Post-weld annealing is not required when welding thin sections.

The Big Screen for the Big Pool

LED Screen Division – Have you noticed that every where we look today, there is every likely hood you are looking at a digital screen, big or small. The role of outdoor digital displays is a recent trend that started with the cinema screens, moved onto TV sets and since then the diversity, has gone ballistic and installed in every country on the planet.

swimming led screen

Bring your aquatic venue alive with the big screen experience.

Never before has society become so addicted, influenced and connected to digital displays. Whether it is watching a movie on your phone whilst you travel on the bus, reading a novel on a kindle or watching a football replay on a stadium screen, the range of technologies currently available provides options, alternatives and opportunities.

One area that ICE AV is increasingly being asked to help with is the public swimming pool. Aquatic Centres today are places to learn, have fun, experience family time and have become community centres. The facilities typically being included today include creche, cafe, club facilities, class rooms, toddler pools, dive pools, training rooms, exercise rooms and now the latest trends many acquatic pool owners are implementing are large format digital LED screens.

Many Aquatic Centre managers have realised to ensure continued patronage and ensure their facilities are seen to be exciting places to be, they are looking to the big screen experience to give them that edge for their digitally connected visitors.

Large format screens have become a standard feature in public environments and many are familiar with the large outdoor LED screens in Tokyo, Time Square, Picadilly Square and of course many roadside and stadium locations around the world.

Hinged LED screen

So what are Aquatic Centres wanting to use large format LED screens for. The obivous use is sports timing for race meetings, however the entertainment value is what Aquatic managers are thinking off to increase the experience.

Applications such as movies, roving pool camera, messages and advertising enhance the visit of all the swimmers. Furthermore with the growth and influence of Social Media the large format LED screens becomes and ideal way for a venue’s community to engage and merges the on-line / off-line local presence as a seamless bi-directional communication channel. One local semi outdoor pool complex that has used a large format movie screen in the Auckland region has been the Waiweria Hotpools, though it has suffered from quality and visibility issues due to not using LED screens. Nevertheless this experience has allowed swimmers who like to lounge in the hot soak pools to watch a movie as part of their visitor experience.

ICE AV Technology has introduced its Plas480-10 Industrial grade LED cabinets as an ideal solution for pool side large format digital screens. The screens can be configured to any size according to budget, viewing distance and resolution required and being manufactured from industrial grade plastic will not rust or detoriate in these humid environments. To minimise egress of moisture internally the screen cabinents can be sealed, thereby minimsing future problems such as internal corrosion.

Plas480 Cabinets

The Plas480 can be installed in a variety of manners. Pictured here is where the cabinets have been assembled onto a swing up frame that can be wall mounted. In addition a screen could be floor mounted on a moveable platform allowing relocating and changing viewing angles depending on activities.

International sports events such as the Rugby World Cup, Formula One GP and of course the Olympics have shown that large format LED screens add greatly to the visibility and enjoyment of events. This familiarity by the public, is an underlying aspect that where ever people gather that there will be be a large format LED screen technology.

In recents years the R&D, quality and reliability has taken huge leaps and bounds meaning the cost has now become alot more affordable. ICE AV recommends that a 1.92m x 1.92m screen as a minimum size to consider installing into an Aquatic Centre to achieve a sufficient display area. The LED screen size can be increased in 480mm steps in vertical and horizontal dimensions.

The PLas480-10 is a 10mm pitch resolution screen and is an excellent starting point for Aquatic Centres to consider. If budget constraints are a factor according to desired screen size then 15mm and 20mm options are available. Alternatively if venues desire the high definition experience we recommend considering the Plas480-5, a 5mm high defiintion option.

One of the unique features of the Plas480 range is the high Horizontal scanning refresh rate making it suitable for TV cameras for event broadcasts. Low refresh rates typically mean viewer screen flicker when television cameras have the screens in their field.

For the luxury complex and hotel often what has been missing in recent years is the visual aspect to entertain and pamper guests as the swim and take in a pool poolside.

The Underwater Swimming Pool screen is manufactured in certain micro step lengths and base width dimensions. Pool constructors and architects should talk to us early on during the pool design process to maximise the integration of this high tech solution.

Underwater Digital Screen

The ICE Underwater Swimming Pool Screen is the ultimate screen for a true state of the art swimming pool.

Small Town, Big Screen impact, shows the way with an outdoor ICE LED screen.

LED Screen Division: The Taranaki Daily Newspaper is leading the way in New Zealand with road side large format digital sign-age commonly called DOOH (Digital Out of Home) using LED screen technology.

ICE LED Digital Screen

The change in media distribution channels and formats has changed the landscape significantly in recent years. Newspapers as a print format have faced strong challenge in the last decade as they loose readership of print, adapting to changes in digital technology, the growth in internet distribution, huge growth in mobility platforms, flexibility and growth in digital television. Demographic research has indicated that advertisers are shifting their advertising budgets from print to digital formats and that the readership of print is migrating away from the youth and young adult market.

Taranaki Daily News General manager Mike Brewer has been very aware of the changing market dynamics occurring world wide and saw an opportunity to position the paper into the digital realm with a new move into the DOOH sector with LED screen technology. The move is seen as being significant as it is the only newspaper owned LED screen installed in New Zealand. The screen is being used to display advertisements, community messages, leading news stories.

LED Screen technician Colin Smith is a member of the ICE AV technical crew. Colin makes some last minute wiring connections prior to the lift onto the side of the building.

The system was built in two halves to meet two annual budgets and installed over two years. The first half installed was seen as an initial test of the concept and to test the waters with DOOH advertising. With the first year experience and the positive advertising support from local businesses it was decided that the concept made strong commercial sense and that the capital investment could be justified.

Taranaki Daily News contracted with ICE AV Technology to design, supply and install the 2880mmW x 3210mmH screen.

One of the challenges was that the LED screen had to be mounted in front of existing windows of the news room, access would not be available from the rear and it had to be modular and installed in to halves over two years. ICE AV rose to the challenge and was able to deliver and install a solution that addressed all aspects.
