Title: Washing Your Outdoor LED Screens
Post by: Thomas Somogyi on April 14, 2019, 08:05:10 am
Hi all!

I'm hoping some of you may be able your help. For an event coming up, some of our outdoor LED panels will be spending a week at the beach. They will get covered in salt spray during this time.

What are you folk doing to clean your panels? Just giving them a gentle hose down, or do you use any cleaning additives somewhere in the process?

Thank you kindly for any advice. It's much appreciated.

Tom.

Consult the manufacturer?
 
If they are IP rated screens you can check what they will handle against this chart: https://www.rainfordsolutions.com/ip-enclosure-ratings-and-standards

Salt shouldn't require a solvent for removal, just lots of water.

Low pressure wash with water is pretty typical, as outdoor LED walls are designed to sit through a rainstorm without any damage. Never heard of soap being needed.

Thanks, guys. We were going with the gentle hose with a shower-head type spray and plenty of water. Sounds like a winner!

All the best,
Tom.
