Innovative Films Protect Interactive Displays at Statue of Liberty Museum

On May 16, 2019 a new museum 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 providing the interactive monitors needed a way to provide a safe, interactive experience for the millions who will be visiting the new museum, protect the surface of the displays, and eliminate glare from overhead lights.

SterileLight's CountDownTM Plus protectors address these specific issues for all types of touchscreen monitors, protecting against germs and scratches, and eliminating screen glare.

The selected anti-microbial, anti-glare 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 film 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 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 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 SterileLight can provide screen protectors 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.
