Main Features of an Outdoor Kiosk
Outdoor touch screen kiosks are engineered to be water resistant and withstand elements like rain, snow, and wind.
Instead of a standard kiosk enclosure made from mild steel or aluminum, outdoor kiosk enclosures are commonly made of stainless steel with an outdoor-rated powder-coating to prevent rust.
Sunlight Readable Screens
Standard touchscreens won't work for outdoor environments because of sunlight glare. High Brightness Touch Screen Monitors with PCAP Touch Panels, Sunlight Readable Displays, UV Reflection Film, and Anti-Reflective Coating are essential for outdoor units.
Depending on your kiosk's location, it may require ventilation or Heating & Cooling Units (HVACs) to regulate internal temperatures and ensure kiosk components stay within their operating range.
Because outdoor kiosks are typically unmanned, they often need additional security measures to prevent vandalism or theft if the kiosk accepts cash.
