Light + Building 2018: AGC previews Glassiled Uni, the latest innovation in LED-embedded glass solutions
AGC Glass Europe will be exhibiting at Light + Building 2018 (18-23 March in Frankfurt), a leading European trade show bringing together professionals in lighting and building service technologies. This year AGC will focus on Glassiled Uni, its brand new LED-embedded glass solution for uniformly illuminating facades.
Infinite combinations of colours, tones and variations
Glassiled Uni is a double glazing unit with the same specifications as traditional double glazing, but this unique product also features monochrome or RGB LEDs embedded in the spacer that make it possible to illuminate any building facade with unprecedented uniformity and no restriction on colour or light temperature. The glass pane can measure up to an unparalleled 3m x 2m. This customised solution is compatible with most frames and is easy to install and maintain.
In addition to its original appearance, Glassiled Uni delivers full transparency when off and low power consumption.
In interior spaces, Glassiled Uni is the ideal solution for creating a unique look combining privacy and colourful effects.
Glassiled, a full range for every need
The Glassiled range features two other products, Glassiled Motion and Glassiled Sign, the result of AGC’s experience and successes in this area since 2007.
Glassiled Motion incorporates individually controlled monochrome or RGB LEDs in a double glazing unit. This means that when night falls the glass can transform into a giant screen, a visual and interactive medium capable of faithfully displaying any animated design. Since the wiring is invisible the glass retains 99% of its transparency; there are no LED strips to distort the view through the glass or spoil the project design. The electronic components and LEDs are protected from moisture and atmospheric deterioration by the double glazing, which also automatically provides thermal insulation. Glassiled Motion is ideal for facade applications such as stadiums, shopping centres, leisure facilities, hotels, residential buildings, offices and more.
Glassiled Sign represents the first generation of Glassiled, featuring monochrome LEDs only. It is the ideal glass product for any interior or exterior application requiring a permanent design – such as a signature, logo, image, etc. – that blends in seamlessly with the facade or another glass medium. Once chosen, the design remains in place for years.
With these three products – offering 99-100% transparency and a uniform effect over multiple storeys (both vision glass and spandrels) – architects and designers have a variety of solutions they can deploy to brand or animate building facades and create innovative interior designs.
The entire Glassiled range will be on display at the Light + Building show in Frankfurt, Germany from 18 to 23 March 2018 (Hall 4.1, stand J10).
