The ASB MultiSports is a sports flooring system made from glass, aluminum and LED components. Its unique aluminium substructure and the custom-made surface of the glass deliver a floor ideal for a sports floor but also for use in any modern building.
The properties of glass allow far more than just an optimised flooring surface. The LED marking lines can be switched on/off or changed on demand. Video messages or scoreboards under the floor are possible.
The floor is made from tempered safety glass and can withstand enormous impact. The panels are made from 2 specially treated glass plates held together by a 1.2 mm PVB safety layer and can be produced to a size larger than 2 x 3 metres. The combination of the glass surface with burned in ceramic dots provide a very long lasting and low maintenance surface.
The surface of the glass undergoes several special treatments to achieve ideal elasticity, friction and reflection of light. After years of extensive testing we have found a surface that does not reflect too much to be a distraction, but still gives a slight, diffuse reflection. Also deflection and friction of the floor achieve equal or better results than conventional sports floors. The glass is in fact 2.4 times more elastic under human weight than a comparable hardwood board. The floor is certified according to the international standard for sports floor, EN 14904. The same treatment that ensures the dim reflection of the surface also causes scratches to remain invisible. The properties of glass bring the advantage of very low maintenance and cleaning requirements. After many years of usage the surface still maintains its original quality without visible wear and tear.
The surface can be almost any colour. Even full size print under the glass is possible. We use a highly specialised UV printing method to print on the whole surface of the floor in up to 600 dpi and then apply a protection and diffuser layer.
