Newsletter 06 2019

Awards, awards, awards!

You may remember from our previous newsletter that over the past few months ASB have been entering into various different competitions across the sport and architectural sectors. In February we kicked off our efforts with a win in the ISPO Award and we were selected as GOLD Winners in the category Teamsport. This was the first of several more. Scroll down to see what else we’ve won…

ASB On TV! – Joko & Klaas TV Series

We spent a few weeks at the Bavaria Film Studios in Munich where the recording of the new series Joko & Klaas against ProSieben was taking place. 

ASB RentalSolutions provided the 216m² LumiFlex floor that was used as the stage/performing area for the duration of the filming. The video content provided utilised LumiFlex’s capabilities tremendously well. Not only did the floor provide each game with a unique scene-setting background, it also reduced the amount of external stage props required for the games. Things such as starting lines, filming zones, instructions and lyrics were all displayed directly on the floor.

The floor proved to be a useful asset for the performers and crew; aspects of film production such as scene changes and stage cues were all performed smoothly by the LumiFlex floor.
For the studio audience and viewers at home, the floor provided a spectacle that is both aesthetically pleasing and informative, allowing them to keep track of proceedings throughout.

We’re happy to announce that we’ve moved on from being FIBA Equipment & Venue Associates to FIBA Equipment & Venue Technical Partners. Both variations of our GlassFloor – MultiSports and LumiFlex – are included.

Recently completed projects

St. Georges College, Weybridge, UK

MultiSports floor, 1,559m²

One of our installation teams have recently arrived back in Germany after completing the construction of the new MultiSports installation down at St. Georges College. This will be our second MultiSports installation located in the UK – the first being Oxford University. The state of the art facility will house our 1,599m² MultiSports floor and accommodate a total of 10 sports. Once the activity centre has been opened for use, you will be able to find pictures and videos on our social media channels (scroll to bottom for links).

Here are a few pictures of the completed MultiSports floor. Excuse the dust on the glass, the site is still very much a busy construction site! For this reason the floor has been wrapped up and sealed, presumably it will stay like that until the grand opening.

Sol Gymnase, Chalons en Champagne, France

MultiSports floor, 459m²

A second team of installers have recently returned back home after the completion of another MultiSports installation. This time at a school in Champagne, France. The 459m² MultiSports floor will have a total of four sports with the addition of a set of geometric shapes; this is to assist in the cognitive training of their students.

New team members at ASB!

We have welcomed four new members into the ASB family since the last newsletter was released…

For the photoshoot, we took them to the starting point of ASB GlassFloor’s journey – a local high school which is home to the world’s first MultiSports floor. A fitting location to mark the start of their journey with ASB. Don’t you think?

We’re very excited that the ASB family has grown yet again. Andreas, Jan, Ralph and Ruth we wish you the best of luck!
