Digital Signage Mount and Enclosure Standards (Poppulo Harmony)

ADA Compliance

All digital signage installations must comply with the 2010 Americans with Disabilities Act Standards for Accessible Design. On-wall installations, whether using a mount or an enclosure, are subject to 2010 ADA Standards for Accessible Design section 307 Protruding Objects, which states any objects installed more than 27 inches above the finished floor (AFF) and not more than 80 inches AFF, shall protrude 4 inches maximum into pathways.

On-wall interactive Installations are also subject to 2010 ADA Standards for Accessible Design section 308 Reach Ranges, which states that the interactive portion of the installation must be more than 15 inches AFF and not more than 48 inches AFF. It is recommended that interactive installations be mounted such that the bottom of the display is at 36 inches AFF and interactive controls kept to the bottom 25% of the digital interface, to ensure those controls remain below 48 inches AFF.

Mounts

When selecting a display mount for a digital sign installation, multiple factors must be considered. These include, but are not limited to:

  • The amount of space between the wall and the back of the display (obtained from the mount specifications) and the thickness of the display (obtained from the display specifications) cannot be greater than 4 inches total for ADA compliance
  • The weight limitation of the mount, compared with the weight of the display
  • The VESA mount patterns supported by the mount, compared with the VESA mount pattern of the display
  • The material of the wall (for example: drywall with studs, brick, or concrete block)
  • The location of other components of the installation, like the player PC
  • The height of the installation
  • What direction and degrees of tilt, rotation, or other movement is desired
  • The number and arrangement of displays for a video wall

The following mounts are recommended:

  • Chief LTM1U: displays less than 85 inches in size, allows for +2 to -12 degrees of vertical tilt
  • Chief XTM1U: displays 85 inches or larger, allows for +5 to -12 degrees of vertical tilt
  • Chief TS318TU: displays 65 inches in size or below, allows for 0 to -15 degrees of vertical tilt and can be extended from the wall up to 18 inches for easier servicing of components mounted behind the display (but during normal operation cannot extend greater than 4 inches for ADA compliance)
  • Chief TS525TU: displays greater than 65 inches, allows for 0 to -15 degrees of vertical tilt and can be extended from the wall up to 25 inches for easier servicing of components mounted behind the display (but during normal operation cannot extend greater than 4 inches for ADA compliance)

Enclosures

Enclosures are not required for digital signs. However, they do offer benefits including ensuring ADA compliance, improving tamper resistance, and a better finished aesthetic for the signage installation. Options exist for both free-standing and on-wall kiosk enclosures, at various display sizes. Enclosures can be used for both non-interactive and interactive signage installations. For interactive installations, enclosures are especially high recommended. Reach out via the Request for A/V Project Proposal form for a comprehensive quote.
