‘LED illuminated glass sports flooring’ by ASB



using LEDs for markings, german ASB systembau have developed the ‘ASB glassfloor’, a new type of glass
surface that utilizes programmable lighting to create lines for indoor sports playing grounds, as well as video
output with capabilities of rendering specific messages beneath the panels. with this, the system can be
used for illuminating different courts at the touch of a switch, adapting to sports such as badminton, basketball,
indoor soccer or hockey, and handball or volleyball.


using a series of modifications with ceramic treatments to reach levels of elasticity and friction similar to traditional
indoor courts, the surface technology provides enough bounce to make sure a ball responds the same way as it would
on a wooden floor. combined with sensor technologies, digital markings can also provide reference to where a player’s
foot stepped out of bounds, or where a ball landed.
