ASB GlassFloor is a German company, producing and installing two different glass sport flooring systems, the ASB MultiSports and the ASB LumiFlex. It is part of the Aluminium System Bau company (ASB) founded in 1965.[1] The first ASB GlassFloor was developed in 2008.[2] Examples of ASB GlassFloor’s work are installed at Oxford University[3], Dresden BallsportARENA [4] and St. Georges College Weybridge. [5]

ASB MultiSports

The ASB MultiSports floor is a glass topped sports floor, with LEDs beneath the surface of the glass that are arranged into channels.[6] The dimensions of said channels correspond with the dimensions of different sports’ game lines.[7] A touchscreen allows the operator to remotely switch on professional playing fields for any type of sport.[8] The glass consists of two treated glass panels that are held together by a layer of PVB (Polyvinyl Butyral).[9] The light emitted from the LEDs penetrates the glass, displaying the desired sporting game lines on the floor for the users to see.[10] Different sized courts can be displayed, such as one full-sized court or multiple smaller courts.[11] The floor is FIBA (International Basketball Federation) as well as WSF (World Squash Federation) accredited.[12][13]

ASB LumiFlex

The ASB LumiFlex floor is a multi-functional LED sports floor.[14] It is able to display any video output. Furthermore, it can track the players on the field as well as display information about them.[15]
