Nachleuchtende Glowway Glasfliesen

The self-illuminating, photoluminescent tiles of Glowway shine in the darkness and point to the exit in emergency situations. The patented, luminescent glass tiles and polycarbonate adhesive tapes of Glowway improve the navigation in everyday life as well as in emergency cases.

Quick orientation in emergency cases

Glowway offers innovative, security-related products for all buildings and public places, where persons in an emergency situation must be able to reach a safe exit quickly and efficiently.

The multisensory products of Glowway also consider the needs of blind and visually impaired persons, as this products aren't only visible but can be also felt.

Long lighting duration without electricity

Glowway connects security and design with accessibility and environment-friendliness. All Glowway products shine several hours in the darkness and surpass the norms of the ISO, the DIN and the ASTM for luminosity many times over.

.

Environment-friendly and comfortabel

The products of Glowway are long-living, eco-friendly, low-priced and especially well suitbable for architectural purposes. They are mainly installed near the ground and facilitate the safe locating of exits in each situation. They can be integrated into the surrounding materials.

They supplement and replace the prescribed markings and security systems. In contrast to conventional signage systems for emergency exits, the glass tiles and the polycarbonate adhesive tiles are independent of an electricity supply.

Thereby, they allow significant power savings. As an electrical wiring isn't necessary, they can be also very easily installed subsequently.

Scientifically tested

Tests, which were conducted by the Helsinki University of Technology (TKK), showed that the tiles  surpass the requirements of the international ISO 16069:2004 standards for luminescence tenfold.

With their high-quality glass design, the products of Glowway are perfectly suited for a modern interior design.

A wide range of fabrications

The luminescent glass tiles of Glowway are available in many different forms, sizes and colours. They can be also equipped with different surface structures, from smooth to rough-grained, and slip-resistant coating.

Multi-sensory products

Multi-sensory products

The multi-sensory products of Glowway can be applied in all situations, in which, next to normal seeing persons, also visually impaired and blind humans need the application of a tactile guidance system. The products were developed that someone can touch the raised, tactile structure, which is luminescent at the same time, with the feet or the white cane.

The polycarbonate products are developed for a simple subsequent installation on an existing surface using glue or screws.

    Tiles as a warning

    Glowway's luminescent glass tiles are also applicable as a danger note. For this, a tile with yellow body, which is also luminescing in yellow, is normally used. The surface of the tile can be designed smooth or slip resistant.

    Examples for the application: Stations, underground stations or each other place where a danger note is necessary. The application is ideally suited for platform edges, in front of which the luminescent tiles glow during the day and warn in the darkness with the necessary distance.

    Antislip Stepfront (GW0086)

     

    Glow-in-the-dark – Contrast - Anti-slip
    Glowway's new patented innovation for stairs combines three important features in one product. High-quality photoluminescent glass Strip makes the stairs visible in darkness. Rubber part provides friction and makes the stairs non-slippery. The dark rubber part also provides an excellent contrast stripe for light coloured Steps. Light contrast color is available for darker stair materials.

     

    The Antislip Stepfront is delivered to the end customer already imbedded in the stair planks by our partner Companies. This results in the end products being seamless and top-quality and there is no extra installation costs for the end customer.

    • No installation costs
    • Elegant complete solution
    • Efficient anti-slipperiness
    • Excellent afterglow
    • Accessibility
    • Durable

     

    TESTED

    • According to tests made by the Finnish Federation of the Visually Impaired (FFVI), using the contrast Strip alongside the photoluminescent stripe would be helpful to the majority of people who have visual impairments to distinguish the edge of the Step.
    • Wearing and friction has also been tested. According to tests made by the Geologcal Survey of Finland, (test no. GTK/476/11.02.00/2016) the antislip rubber part enhances the overall friction of the concrete slabs in dry and wet conditions as well as when the slab is waxed.
    • The photoluminescence qualities of the product have been tested by SP Technical Research Institute of Sweden, (tests MTk3P04444-K01-KO6) according to ISO 16069:2004, DIN 67510-1:2009 and ASTM E2073-10 Standards exceeding the requirements.
    • Glowway glass products have been tested in accredited laboratories (ZAG Ljubljana, Slovenian National Building and Civil Engineering Institute, Department for Materials, reports no:P1338/13-480-1P841/14-480-1) and fulfil the EN ISO 10545:2012 requirements for breaking strength, Chemical resistance, resistance to stains and slip-resistance.

     

    Stair edges profiles

    Stair edges profiles

    The use of afterglowing, photoluminescent glass tiles as stair edges can offer an especially important orientation help in emergency cases, for example at power outages or fire and smoke.  The stair edges are clearly visible anytime, also in complete darkness, and so, help so to avoid further accidents.

    Most of the luminescent Glowway glass tiles can be used as stair edges profiles.

    The luminescent Glowway polycarbonate tapes can be also easily subsequently installed on stairs to increase the security.

    Luminescent polycarbonate adhesive tapes

    Luminescent polycarbonate adhesive tapes

    The luminescent polycarbonate adhesive tapes of Glowway can be very easily fixed on most surfaces. The surface of the polycarbonate adhesive tapes itself is also very resistant against abrasion.

    The glue has been already applied on the underside of the polycarbonate tapes, what facilitates the installation on the surface.

    The polycarbonate tape itself is on the sides only 0,2 mm and in the middle 0,5 mm thick.

    The polycarbonate tapes are available in the most diverse shapes and surface designs. The extremely flexible material makes a broad range of shapes and designs possible. That also applies for the surface colour.

    The maximum size is at 900 x 600 mm.

    The luminescent polycarbonate adhesive tapes can be installed at all points of a room and are so optimally suitable as a danger note.

    At an installation on the floor, the latter has to be thoroughly cleaned in advance. The floor should also be even and not show a furrowed, uneven structure.

    Thanks to the flat design and the longevity, the luminescent polycarbonate adhesive tapes can be ideally used as a stair edge profile.

    Advantages

    • Many application possibilities
    • Simple installation
    • Longevity
    • Minimal embossment
    • Customer-specific producible
