Glassiled is a laminated glass with embedded monocolor or RGB LEDs. The LEDs are powered within the glass through an invisible conductive coating. This conductive coating enables the transport of the electrical energy through the product. The cover glass pane protects the LED’s and their connections with the conductive coating. A transparent polyvinylbutyral (PVB) interlayer provides adhesion between base glass pane and cover glass pane.
Glassiled efficiently blocks UV light and therefore reduces discoloration. Just as a standard PVB interlayer, the special PVB used for Glassiled products absorbs more than 99% of the UV light.
Each Glassiled project is unique. LED benefits allow for creative integration of light sources into glass. The material has a long life time (and no sensitivity to on-off cycling nor to vibrations) and extreme compactness of light source monocolor (red, green, blue, warm white, cool white) or RGB (changing colour freely). A dimming function is also possible.
