Portable, compact and streamlined – The benefits of a floor stand kiosk
Whether you’re looking to create a streamlined visitor check-in, an information kiosk, or an easy-to-install mobile Point of Sale terminal, floor stands offer a simple and effective way to turn your tablet into a kiosk.
Floor stands also offer flexibility, allowing you to move the tablet when you need to or use it at pop-up events.
So, let’s look at how to create a floor stand kiosk that can be used anywhere, anytime, using the Evo floor stand…
What is a floor stand?
As the name suggests, a floor stand is a freestanding pole with a base that sits on the floor. This base can also be screwed to the floor for additional security.
The upper part of the floor stand pole then attaches to a compatible tablet enclosure to create a streamlined kiosk.
And there are various upper pole options to accommodate the different ways a tablet might be used.
- The Evo upper pole – which is fixed at a 45-degree angle, and
- The Evo X upper pole – which allows the tablet enclosure to tilt to different angles, and swivel between landscape and portrait mode
Device cables can then be channeled through the stand, so your tablet remains charged.
Floor stand kiosk benefits
There are numerous benefits to using a floor stand, including its compact nature, portability, easy set-up, and the streamlined look the kiosk provides.
Essentially, a floor stand allows your device to be positioned anywhere, which makes it ideal for pop-up events or conventions.
It also allows you to set up your kiosk, POS, or check-in without needing a counter and fixing the tablet enclosure to the wall.
It takes up minimal space and is easy to assemble and dissemble in the process. For example, the Evo floor stand comprises only three pieces that quickly fit together.
These pieces include the baseplate, the lower pole which screws into the baseplate, and the upper pole with the enclosure mount.
The tablet and enclosure fit neatly into the top of the pole, and the kiosk is ready to use.
If it’s to be a more permanent fixture in a venue, the base plate can be screwed to the floor using four screws.
The charging cable then runs down from the enclosure through the pole to the floor, where it can be channeled to the nearest power supply.
Meanwhile, the stand is molded metal with a durable powder coat finish.
Once assembled, the stand is the perfect height for use at 1m high, while the 30cm x 30cm base plate weighs in at 3.8kg, meaning it’s light enough to be portable but heavy enough to sit securely on the floor without risk of tipping.
Who uses floor stands?
Floor stands can be used in various commercial settings, including hospitality, government agencies, education, and events.
They are ideal for check-in kiosks, portable displays, loyalty sign-up stations, and so much more, meaning you can find them used in hospitality as a digital menu out the front of a restaurant or mPOS terminal for inputting orders, in business as a visitor sign-in station, and at events as a portable digital display or information kiosk.
