NuShield Films Protect Interactive Displays at Statue of Liberty Museum
On May 16, 2019 new museums opened on Liberty Island to help visitors better enjoy their Statue of Liberty experience. The interactive museum provides historical information and deeper understanding for visitors about Lady Liberty, the designers, the construction and the effort it took to make this monument possible. Various sections of the museum use digital monitors to convey information and allow visitors to access information using touch screen displays.
The company that provided the interactive monitors needed a way to protect the surface of the displays, eliminate glare from overhead lights and provide a safe, interactive experience for the millions who will be visiting the new museum. NuShield is proud to have been chosen to provide overlay films that protect these monitors from scratches, germs and to eliminate screen glare.
The NuShield Triple A antiglare, anti-microbial and anti-fingerprint overlay film has been specifically designed to eliminate germs and protect the display surface in interactive environments. The film’s anti-microbial property has shown a reduction rate of 99% over a 24 hour period in laboratory tests using colon bacillus and Staphylococcus aureus bacteria. The Triple A continually inhibits the growth of germs on the surface and stands up to cleaning with harsh chemical solvents without degrading the anti-microbial protection and protects the device from damage.
The Triple A film also eliminates the sharp reflective glare from overhead spot lights placed throughout the museum. The anti-glare feature diffuses the reflection with less than 10% visible haze. And the film is thin enough to allow touch sensitivity, but tough enough to stand up to protect against scratches and abuse.
The Triple A film uses a slightly tacky silicone rubber instead of a traditional pressure sensitive adhesive, which means the film is easily applied and removed and will not trap air. The film can be cleaned with solvent, bleach, rubbing alcohol, dilute alkalis, esters, and other disinfectants to eliminate germs on the screen, and it will not dilute its antimicrobial properties. There is no other product on the market today that combines these features.
The film can also be easily replaced, if necessary, without leaving any residue behind.
Currently NuShield manufactures screen protector and anti-glare films for over 15,000 electronic devices with LCD, LED or plasma displays up to 80 inch diagonal. These include Smartphones, handheld devices, GPS displays in cars and boats, laptops and tablets, monitors, POS systems and televisions.
