When we set out to design the ASB GlassFloor, we realised that the elasticity and grip could be freely selected with our system. Therefore, we did not approach the question of what is possible, but what is best for the actual end user, the athlete.
The floor we developed provides shock absorption and elasticity at the highest level of what is allowed by the EN standard which is recognised world-wide. This provides a friendly surface for the player´s joints that also has a very good rebound value for sports like basketball thanks to the properties displayed by glass.
When choosing a high end-grip, it provides players with the best ability to stop instantly and with maximum control. At the same time, the risk of skin burn e.g. when players fall or dive for the ball is several times lower than on any other sports surface. In addition, the new floor performs 30% better than others under wet conditions due to its elevated ceramic dots.
