Glass fabrication specialist OSG will showcase its innovative new ScreeneX glass-embedded digital display solutions at this year’s UITP.
Developed by OSG’s expert in-house R&D team, ScreeneX’s cutting-edge technology makes the most of valuable, but unutilised, real estate in transport and retail – namely glass windows, doors and partitions.
The ultra-slim digital displays are embedded into standard glass units transforming these areas into information and signage solutions for communicating with passengers. The surface of each side of the screen is as smooth and clear as conventional glass, so it does not impact aesthetics or safety.
Among the innovations on display will be the TRN 21-21T dual-sided partition which combines a digital display on one side and a touchscreen interface on the other. Seamless integration with existing passenger information systems ensures operators and manufacturers can plug-and-play with ease.
The dual-sided partition has already been soundly tested in a successful pilot with Bombardier and Deutche Bahn in Germany, Kinkisharyo in USA and is set to change the standard in the on-board passenger information world.
Other products on show include the TRN 38-LED. This dual-sided product was created especially for vehicle side windows. The external side features a new slim LED sign, while the internal one has a widescreen LCD for displaying passenger information.
ScreeneX technology can even be used for divided frame windows on buses and trains. A non-opening unit is fitted to the upper part of the window, which gives all the benefits of digital signage without the need to replace the entire window should an issue arise.
As well as public transportation vehicles themselves, ScreeneX’s high performance displays are also the perfect fit for rail and bus terminals, stations and platforms. Every display is built to the highest quality standards, as well as being highly resilient to vibration, changes in temperature and humidity, and vandalism, to make them the reliable choice for these challenging environments.
Now this would be a very cool way to walk in to work every morning. A great use of technology...

Monarch Renlita was chosen to design and manufacture the final specifications for the grand entry to The District at Chatswood Interchange. The door opens completely outward measuring 4m wide by 4.5m high. The door is hydraulic powered and LED screen cladded.
To allow for the weight of the door, the architects designed it with hydraulic cylinders underneath the door which would result in support for the door from below. However, as Monarch Renlita designed the final specification, we noticed that the hydraulic cylinders could be placed above which would keep them completely out of site while still providing support for the door.
Seemingly floating above the entrance to The District, the door elegantly sits in its surrounding architecture, welcoming you into the designer food court. The door looks impressive and creates a surreal experience as you walk over the bridge and under the huge awning displaying brightly lit imagery from the LED screens.
The Monarch Renlita door that was used for The District falls under our hydraulic door range. Our hydraulic doors introduce new options for greater weight and versatility in the folding door series.
Hydraulic doors are suitable for many applications including: Shopping Centres, Bar Tops, Counter Tops, Shopfronts, Doorways, Sports Complexes, Arcades, Clubs, Gyms and Restaurants. They are a popular option as they can lift doors which would have otherwise been too heavy to lift manually. This design allows for the door to be fully projected either inside or outside of a building giving more options in the use of space. Depending on the pivot point, hydraulic doors can also be used as an awning which helps open the façade and bring the outdoors indoors.
As seen with the door designed by The District, an innovative cladding decision was made by the architects. Monarch Renlita works closely with architects but also assists with the design of cladding and glazing. The hydraulic door frames produced by Monarch Renlita are designed with a powder coated or polyurethane paint finish, steel frames and sized according to door dimensions and structural loads.
Monarch Renlita can execute a variety of other door designs. A full range of our capabilities is available on our website https://monarchrenlita.aragroup.com.au/
