Big Screen for a Big Depot

London’s largest independent builders’ merchant, Builder Depot needed a massive scale to fit in with its surroundings.

The Challenge

Builder Depot is London’s leading independent builders’ merchant and has the largest merchant site in London, located in New Southgate. So when an outdoor video display was required, it had to be on a massive scale to fit in with its surroundings.

The Solution

Spectra Displays supplied a full colour, outdoor LED video display which can clearly be seen even on the brightest sunny day.


  • 16mm pixel pitch, Nichia 346 KS series LEDs
  • 384 pixels high x 768 pixels wide
  • 6.144 metres high x 12.288 metres wide

The Result

The display meets the prime requirement of being very large and impossible to miss, and does not look at all out of place within the massive merchant site.
