Chapter 1: What’s the stretched bar

The stretched bar is a kind of ultra-wide computer display monitor. The length of the screen is much bigger than the width. In our daily, there are many places that need to show customers some important but high-quality information. However, the space of the places is small, such as inside an elevator, subway cars, and so on. The width of the common monitor is too wide for similar situations. The stretched bar is designed to solve such problems.

There are many types of stretched bars. Different applications need different types. For example, if you need to use the bar monitors in a place that is full of water, then you need to use the waterproof type monitor. If you use it in the industrial sector, then you need to choose the industrial type monitor.

The size, resolution, screen brightness, and so on are all custom. You don’t need to worry that there are no appropriate such monitors for your applications. There are a lot of custom characteristics and points that you need to pay attention to and this article will tell you all of them.

Chapter 2: Best stretched bar for sale

If you want to buy the stretched bar, then you need to pay attention to your using environment first. It’s important to choose different bar-type monitors for different applications. Different types of products have different prices.

For example, if you need to use the stretched bar under sunshine, then you need to choose the sunlight-readable type with high screen brightness. If you need it to work 24 hours/ 7days, then you need to choose the industrial type. If you only need to use it several hours a day, then the commercial type is the best for you, caused by the price of the commercial type stretched bar is better than the industrial type.

There are also many other details that you need to pay attention to, such as the touch screen, custom frame, and so on. The best way to buy the right stretched bar for your application is to find a professional supplier. GECEY is your best choice.

GECEY has full experience in this field and has exported plenty of such products all over the world. GECEY has lots of advantages, for example, high quality, pretty price, long warranty and so on. GECEY can design the custom stretched bar for your project. We have many engineers and we usually use AutoCAD, Solidworks, and other software to design for our clients.

Chapter 3: Screen size & resolution

The screen size of the stretched bar is custom, but it doesn’t mean that any sizes are available. You can only choose the most suitable size from the available ones. You don’t need to worry that there is not the right size for your application, because the range of the size is very rich. It can be from 6.5” to 88”. The screen size of the stretched bar depends on the LCD panel it uses.

Many stretched LCD panels are made by the common LCD panel. For example, the AUO 19” stretched LCD panel is one-third of the 22” panel. The AUO cut the 22” panel into 3 pieces, then make them into three pieces of 19” stretched LCD panel. So, is that possible that you cut the common monitor to make such a bar monitor by yourself? The answer is it’s impossible. The principle sounds simple, but the production process is very complicated.

The resolution of the stretched bar is related to the screen size. For example, the resolution of the 24” bar monitor is 1920 x 360. And The resolution of the 49.5” bar monitor is 1920 x 540. The following tables are the list of the screen size and the resolution of the commonly used stretched bar.

Chapter 4: Panel type of stretched bar

The display panel is the core part of the computer monitor. According to the panel type, the commonly used display panels can be divided into two types: LCD panels and OLED panels.

The LCD panel is a kind of old display technology, but it’s widely used in plenty of products. The quality of such a panel with a WLED backlight is very good and the price is pretty. All of the stretched bars are made from such panels. The OLED panel is a new technology, but there isn’t a bar monitor which is made by OLED panel at present.

Chapter 5: Screen brightness

When you select the stretched bar for your application, you need to pay attention to the screen brightness. The screen brightness is an important parameter for any display device. For an indoor display monitor, the brightness is about 200 nits.

The stretched bar is often used in bright places or outdoor, so the requirement for the screen brightness is higher. If you use it in a bright room indoors or in the shadow outdoor, then the requirement for the screen brightness is about 400 nits -700 nits. If you need the monitor to be sunlight-readable, the screen brightness should be over 700 nits. There are plenty of ultra-wide LCD panels for selection, and the highest screen brightness of stretched bar can be 2500 nits.

Chapter 6: Enclosure

The enclosure of stretched bar is custom and there are many types. Different products have different requirements. The material of the enclosure can be iron, stainless steel, aluminum, and so on. The production process includes cutting, bending, and others. You can design the enclosure by yourself. If you can not do that, it’s also convenient that we design and make for you. For us, we usually use professional software to design, such as AutoCAD, Solidworks, etc, then use several kinds of machines to make the enclosure of the stretched bar.

The followings are some commonly used cases of the enclosure for reference. You can check and choose the best type for your application.

Frameless type: The frameless monitor means it’s a kind of open frame monitor. It just has some simple bracket that is used to hold the LCD panel, controller board, and others. The touch screen is also available for open frame stretched bar. If you have the enclosure already, then this type is the best for you.

Framed type: The stretched bar with enclosure is a kit that can contain everything you need, for example, the touch screen, built-in speaker, controller, and so on. The size, appearance, and others are all custom. You can use it as a panel mount monitor. If the bar monitor will be used outdoor, then you need to choose the outdoor type monitor.

Stand type: Some stretched bars use enclosures with stands. You can put the bar display directly on the floor and it can work independently. It’s just like digital signage. You can use it to play advertisements.

Chapter 7: How to mount

The mounting method of the stretched bar is important and custom. You need to consider how to install such a wide LCD display monitor before buying. Actually, the mounting method depends on what you want to do with it. There are 3 types of typical methods and the following is the list.

Panel mount: When the stretched bars are used as the parts of your machines or equipment, we recommend using the panel mount type monitor as we mention in the last chapter. For example, if you have a vending machine and you need to install a bar monitor as a display device in the machine, then the panel mount monitor is the best solution.

Wall mount: Plenty of stretched bars are mounted on the wall. There is almost no gap between the monitor and the wall. It looks like a work of art. Such a bar monitor is usually a fully functional kit that is smart. It has an operating system and can be connected to the network via Wi-Fi.

Suspended type: Some stretched bars are hung from the ceiling. This kind of mount method is usually used to install large sizes of wide monitors, such as 49.5”, 60”, and so on.

Chapter 8: Touch screen

Similar to other types of monitors, the stretched bar can also be used with a touch screen. Any types of touch screens are available, for example, capacitive touch screens, resistive touch screens, infrared touch screens, and others.

The touch screens are not necessary for most of the bar monitors, because such monitors are just used to show some important information. However, they are essential for some applications, for instance, vending machines. The customers need to use the touch screen to select the products they need and pay money.

The capacitive touch screen and IR touch screen are what we recommend to use. The price of the capacitive touch screen is higher than the IR touch screen, but it’s transparent and frameless. The thickness of such a touch screen is just about 2mm. The capacitive touch screen is widely used in the small sizes of stretched bar displays, caused by the quality of large sizes of such touch screens is not as stable as the small sizes.

The IR touch screen can be used in any size of stretched bars, caused by the sizes of such touch screens are custom. All of the large sizes of stretched bars use such touch screens. The IR touch screen has a frame with a thickness is about 8mm and width is about 15mm. We recommend using such a touch screen if you don’t have requirements for the frame.

Chapter 9: Functions of stretched bar

The stretched bar has two commonly used functions. One is used as a computer monitor and another is a multimedia playing platform. The function is decided by the type of control board it uses. Different control boards have different functions.

Monitor: Such stretched bar is just a computer display monitor. You need to connect it to the computer via the HDMI, VGA, or DVI interface. Such bar-type monitors can not work independently and they are usually used as the displays of many kinds of machines, such as vending machines, and others.

Multimedia playing platform: Such stretched bar is usually used to play the advertisements. It’s smart and can work independently. It has an operating system and can be connected to the internet via Wi-Fi. It also has RAM and ROM. You can use your SD card or U-disk to update the advertisements. It’s very convenient.

Chapter 10: Applications

The stretched bar type displays are widely used and the followings are some common applications in our daily life.

Vending machines: A lot of such machines have bar-type monitors on the top right side and the monitors are used with touch screens. You can use your fingers to select the products or view the introduction.

Airport and train station: You can see that there are many navigation signs in the airports and train stations. The signs are used to guide the passengers to the places they want to go to. Plenty of the signs are made by the stretched bars.

Subway cars: Plenty of subway cars use bar display monitors to display the site information. The monitors are installed on the top of the doors. The passenger can easily know what their next stop is.

Digital signage: Digital signage is used to play the advertisements. You can see such products in the elevator and many other places. The space of the elevator is small. It’s the best place for the digital signage which is made by the stretched bar monitor.

Chapter 11: Advantages

The stretched bar is very popular. As a display device, it has several advantages. First of all, it’s narrow. The narrow body is the best solution for the small space. Second, it can provide clear and sharp pictures. Its resolution is very high. This is very important for the places that need to display high-quality videos and advertisements to the clients.

The stretched bar is not only widely used in the narrow space, but also in many places with enough space. For example, a lot of the owners of the shops use it to introduce their products. If they use the common monitors, on one hand, the common monitors will take up too much space.

On the other hand, the common monitors will attract the customers to watch the screen instead of their products. This is harmful to making money. At last, the big body of the common monitor is not good for the layout of the shop. So, plenty of places with large space also use the stretched bar monitor.

There is another kind of narrow display device which is similar to the stretched bar. It’s an LED dot matrix screen that is made of plenty of LEDs. The disadvantage of such a screen is its resolution is very low. It’s just used to display some text messages.

Chapter 12: Conclusion

The stretched bar is the perfect display solution for plenty of applications. Its narrow body is the best choice for a place that has a small space. If you have any questions, please feel free to use the following blue button to contact us.
