Integration

Component Integration

KIOSK’s dominant market share in custom kiosk design ties directly to our proven ability to integrate virtually any combination of the latest self-service component technology (indoor and outdoor).

We’re the manufacturer for client solutions in multifunction financial services and airport security, commonly requiring integration of 15 – 20+ distinct peripherals. More typically, KIOSK serves clients needing a "somewhat custom" creative design, with just a few unique accessories or components economically integrated into a standard style kiosk.

Commonly integrated components are listed below. If you don’t see it listed, just ask us.

  • Diverse Computing Options

Outdoor

Outdoor Kiosk Solutions

When deploying a fully outdoor kiosk, it’s essential to start by leveraging the expertise of an experienced supplier. KIOSK has created hundreds of the industry’s most widely recognized outdoor solutions for transportation and parking companies, theatres, amusement parks, stadiums and resorts. Disney, AMC Theatres, Ticketmaster & Tickets.com (Major League Baseball), and Regal Cinemas are among our many successful outdoor clients.

Special considerations to improve your design include:

  • Design for the Elements: Outdoor units are designed with watertight seams and insulated inner walls to protect internal components. KIOSK provides the appropriate NEMA rating (related to the severity of weather exposure); rugged outdoor component choices, HVAC / shelter recommendations, and UL testing.
  • Robust Materials: Using metal tests and historical data, KIOSK engineers have determined three metal treatment options, based on the customer’s aesthetic, structural, and cost objectives. KIOSK recommends the best enclosure treatment and finish to meet maximum corrosion resistance based on placement intent.
  • Geographic-specific Environmental Conditions: KIOSK's engineers factor in environmental challenges (natural sunlight, humidity & precipitation levels, temperature ranges, etc.) to optimize operation.
  • Heating and Cooling: Integrating the correct HVAC unit maintains optimal temperature and humidity levels for peak reliability of the full component mix.
  • Display Choice: Hi Brite LCDs eliminate “sunlight washout” for outdoor screen readability (touch screens available).
  • Solar Power Source:  See KIOSK’s Green Solutions Pages
  • Outdoor Installation: Expert, turnkey services address the extensive requirements that ensure seamless outdoor performance.
