The GlassFloor has an expected lifetime of 70 years. The materials used are glass, ceramic and aluminium which are known for their resilience and longevity. The main advantages however lie in the glass surface whose matt surface means that it does not show scratches or other signs of use, and the ceramic dots which withstand any kind of abrasion. The LEDs have a minimum life expectancy of 50,000 hours. ASB has set itself the goal of creating a floor that outlasts its venue.
Moreover, a floor with these properties allows one to use it for a variety of events which would be unthinkable of doing on a standard sports floor. It is possible to arrange non-sporting events, and access the floor with scaffolding or other heavy equipment.
