Innovation Room: Photo luminescent Paths

Increasingly, citizens are seeking ways to save and protect energy sources. In cities, the extinction of lighting (light pollution) at night will be part of these measures without a doubt in the coming years, something that will also apply to our homes and developments. That is why Vía Célere offers in its developments in conjunction with LuminTech, luminescent floors which glow in the dark, creating a more pleasant environment and better visibility in the dark, while at the same time being decorative and enabling passageways and paths to be visible, as well as emergency exits.

What is photo luminescence? Photo luminescence is the emission of light as a consequence of the previous absorption of radiation. Applied in signage, it results in elements capable of staying illuminated in emergency situations in the event of power outages, facilitating the identification of safety equipment and installations and evacuation routes.

Photo luminescent products absorb and store energy from normal ambient light, and then release this energy in the form of light when the room darkens. Advances in technology are allowing the strong development of improved materials, which glow more brightly and for a longer time than previous photo luminescent technologies. 

Where are they generally used?

  • In park trails and paths
  • Terraces and communal areas of dwellings
  • Pool edges

In this way, using this innovative material, an elegant design is combined with energy saving, as it does not need electricity to recharge the lights, as well as cognitive accessibility, facilitating the understanding of the environment by surrounding the pool with light, for example, indicating its security perimeter. With this system it is possible to avoid community expenses, while seeking environmental sustainability and energy efficiency.

But this is not the only point in which we were pioneers. At Vía Célere innovation is in our DNA, discover this and all the other innovations carried out over the years at
