PRODUCTS & services

Asbestikum is a media business that specialises in the manufacturing, installation and operating of industrial media channels to communicate information to the work force. 

The current media channels owned and operated by Asbestikum are:

Industrial Monitors and Bus Screens

Our industrial monitors are specifically manufactured to operate under harsh working conditions (IP65 standard) and can sustain exposure to lightning, water, shockwaves, heat, dust, electrical surges and most other extreme elements usually associated with industrial / mining work sites.

Currently our display monitors operate underground in waiting areas and meeting places, in excess of 1,200 meters below surface level. 

Asbestikum also offers industrial type units fitted in busses where communication is brought to workers in transit.

Industrial Kiosk Touch Screen

The touch screen capability of Asbestikum’s Industrial grade display unit turns our communication screen into a digital kiosk that can be used for any application where user interaction is needed.

Asbestikum provides an “out of the box” kiosk application that enables us to provide our clients with a quick getting-started kiosk solution.

Our clients use this feature to call up critical operational information, data and documents, making this data available to employees at their work areas with the push of a button.

In environments where laptops, smart phones and tablets are not readily available or maybe not connected to a network, this kiosk feature is a “must-have”.

Asbestikum’s communication services can be extended for application on Mobile Tablets, enabling “two-way” communication with various data sources. Our clients typically use these devices to call up and send operation data for workers’ use. Asbestikum has the software development capabilities to integrate our offerings with existing Operational Data Systems already in play at a Client, and display critical data and information where it is needed most, at the work site.

Large Outdoor Media Monitor

Asbestikum offers large outdoor display monitors. 

These units are sold outright with warrantees (from 2 years up to 8 years) and come with maintenance plans. 

The content displayed on the units can be self-managed by the Employer or managed by Asbestikum (preferred method). The monitors can be ordered in custom sizes.
