  • Safety hazards: 

If installed improperly or the structure is aged, the hanging LED display may be at risk of falling. Not only does this cause damage to people and equipment, it can also have a negative impact on your brand image. Therefore, special attention needs to be paid to safety issues during installation and maintenance.

2. Advantages and disadvantages of floor-standing LED display

1). Advantage

  • Easy installation:

The installation process of a floor-standing LED display is relatively simple, it only needs to be placed directly on the ground, without complicated installation steps and additional equipment. This makes the installation process faster and more efficient, saving labor and time costs.

  • Good stability: 

Since the floor-standing LED display is in contact with the ground, its stability is effectively guaranteed. It is not easily affected by external factors, such as wind, vibration, etc., thus ensuring the stable operation and display effect of the display.

  • Easy maintenance: 

When the floor-standing LED display fails, it can be repaired directly without the need for additional equipment and safety measures like the hanging display. This reduces downtime and improves repair efficiency.

2). Shortcoming

  • Occupying floor space:

Floor-standing LED displays require a certain area of ground, which can be a challenge in environments with limited space. It may restrict other activities or require the user to sacrifice some floor space to install the display.

  • Limited visual effects:

Compared with hanging LED displays, the visual effects of floor-standing displays may be dull, and it is difficult to create a unique visual impact. Because it is usually placed on the ground or in a lower position, the viewer’s viewing angle and distance may be limited.

  • Poor mobility:

 Once the floor-standing LED display is installed, it becomes relatively difficult to move it. This means location and layout need to be carefully considered before installation to ensure long-term use is met. If the location needs to be changed or other adjustments need to be made, the display may need to be reinstalled or disassembled, increasing the workload and cost.

3. Analysis of applicable scenarios of hanging and floor-standing types

1). Applicable scenarios for hanging LED displays

Suspended LED displays are widely used in shopping malls and shopping malls. They can be hung in internal corridors, atriums, or external walls to display product advertising, promotions, or brand images to attract customers’ attention.

At exhibitions and event sites, hanging LED displays are often used as background walls or suspended in the air to display event themes, company introductions, speech content, etc. They can form a unique visual effect, attract the audience’s attention, and add highlights to the event.

  • Outdoor billboards:

Hanging LED displays are also widely used in the field of outdoor advertising. For example, they can be used as billboards next to highways, above squares, etc. to display various commercial advertisements, promotional information, or public service announcements, effectively attracting the attention of pedestrians and vehicles.

2). Applicable scenarios for floor-standing LED display

  • Indoor exhibition halls and conference rooms: 

In places where a stable display environment is required, such as indoor exhibition halls and conference rooms, floor-standing LED displays are an ideal choice. They can be placed in the center of the exhibition hall or on the wall of the conference room to display product introductions, speech content, conference materials, etc., providing the audience with a clear and stable visual experience.

  • Temporary displays and event sites:

For temporary displays and event sites, such as product launches, celebrations, etc., floor-standing LED displays have the characteristics of high flexibility and easy installation. They can be quickly set up and disassembled to adapt to the needs of different venues and layouts, providing efficient and convenient display solutions for events.

  • Open venues such as outdoor squares and parks:

In open venues such as outdoor squares and parks, floor-standing LED displays can be used as information displays or advertising tools. They can be placed in the center or edge of the venue to display event information, public service announcements city images, etc., providing convenient information services to citizens and tourists.

4. How to choose the appropriate installation method

When choosing a suitable LED display installation method, multiple factors need to be considered to ensure that the final solution selected can meet the use needs and has a good cost performance. Here are a few key points to consider:

1). Consider the installation environment:

  • Site size: Based on the area and height of the installation site, determine which installation method is more suitable. For example, in a narrow indoor space, a hanging type may be more suitable, while in a spacious outdoor venue, a floor-standing type may be more practical.

  • Load-bearing capacity: Suspended LED displays require support from load-bearing structures, so it is necessary to ensure that the installation location has sufficient load-bearing capacity. The floor-standing display screen is placed directly on the ground and has relatively low load-bearing capacity requirements.

  • Wind Effects: For outdoor installations, wind is an important consideration. Hanging displays may be more susceptible to wind forces and require additional securing measures to ensure safety. Floor-standing displays are generally more stable and less affected by wind because they are in contact with the ground.

2). Consider usage requirements:

  • Display content: Different display content may require different installation methods. For example, if you need to display images or videos over a large area, a hanging display may be more advantageous because it can cover a larger space. If you need to display detailed product introductions or text information, a floor-standing display may be more suitable.

  • Viewing distance and angle: Consider the viewing distance and angle of the audience and choose the appropriate installation method to ensure the best viewing effect. For example, if the audience needs to view from a greater distance, a hanging display may be more suitable, while if the audience needs to view from a closer distance, a floor-standing display may be more suitable.

3). Consider cost-effectiveness:

  • Installation cost: Different installation methods have different installation costs. Factors such as installation materials, labor costs, equipment costs, etc., need to be comprehensively considered to select a cost-effective installation method.

  • Maintenance costs: Consider the maintenance costs that may be incurred during long-term use, such as repair costs, replacement parts costs, etc. Suspended displays may have higher maintenance costs because they are more difficult to repair. Floor-standing displays, on the other hand, are generally easier to service and replace parts.

  • Service life: Different installation methods may have an impact on the service life of the display. It is necessary to choose an installation method that can meet current needs and have a long service life to reduce the cost of long-term use.


To sum up, hanging and floor-standing LED displays each have their own unique advantages and applicable scenarios. When choosing an appropriate installation method, we need to comprehensively consider multiple factors, such as the installation environment, usage requirements, and cost-effectiveness.

Only on the basis of comprehensive analysis can we make the wisest choice to ensure that the display effect and usage benefits of the LED display are maximized.
