Global - London Underground

Crosstrack Media Wall

Our solution lay in the collaborative approach between our creative design team and our Engineering/Development teams, along with the London Underground.  This was essential on such a technical project to ensure the strict safety regulations are met, whilst not compromising the premium appearance. The blue-sky approach of all teams resulted in a modular solution that could cover the whole cross trackside wall of a tube station and provided a premium look and feel. The Media Wall can accommodate printed dry posted media or act as a canvas for digital projection and can be utilised in any tunnel regardless of substrates or dimensions. Accommodating the variations in dimensions of these Victorian built tunnels was critical to the project’s success and crucial to both passenger and staff safety and it was essential that tunnel measurements were 100% accurate. We used “Bogeys” (robotic laser scanners that scan the whole tunnel) to travel along the track to measure the curvature of the tunnel and to report any inconsistencies in surface structure. This data was then translated by our Development and Engineering teams who produced a Bespoke Media Wall solution for every platform tunnel in the station. 

Slimlite Lightboxes in Empire Cinemas, Ipswich.

Empire Cinema, Ipswich - Lightbox Wall

This collection of Slimlite boxes was designed to capture the eye of cinema-goers, who share Empire Cinema’s love of film.

Empire Cinemas wanted to enhance its movie-going experience even further by introducing illuminated displays into their newest and most modern cinema to advertise upcoming films, along with some nostalgic film images to create a focal point in their foyer.

arken, which has worked with Empire Cinemas for a number of years, created the unique one-sheet Slimlite lightbox installation, using a combination of customised aluminium carcasses, with back lit LED illumination and their front opening Ultragrip profile for interchangeability of titles.

The collection of Slimlite boxes has been designed to capture the eye of cinema-goers, who share Empire Cinema’s love of film.

 

The lightboxes in the cinema lobby at the Buttermarket Shopping Centre, Ipswich, created a focal point display of both original film posters of cinema classics including Pulp Fiction and Close Encounters, alongside those promoting the latest theatrical releases.

 

Aside from the iconic poster displays, they also provided the opportunity to showcase what’s coming next to the cinema in a way that stands out. 

Network Rail Media Panels for Primesight

We designed and developed a 48 / 96 sheet external wet posted Media Panel, suitable for Wall Mounting & Free Standing, complying with industry standards and providing a good return in investment with longevity of usage.

 

Solution: A modular poster display panel system, consisting of aluminium frame surround, fabricated galvanised panels with steel tubular upright supports & connecting bracketry. Providing a cost effective product and consideration with the logistics in moving such huge component parts around the country.

 

Conclusion: A system that allowed easy handling of the parts to be installed effectively and to meet structural calculations.  A growth area for the Media industry.
