Sun powered illumination: Photovoltaic transforms the already eco-friendly glass block into a new building instrument, ideal for brightening exterior applications and conserving energy.
Composed of solar powered, low-voltage illuminating glass pavers — the Photovoltaic collection is a fast, easy and low-cost alternative to electrical ground lighting. Add soft droplets of light to dark exteriors or create glowing walkway patterns, all without the need for intricate electrical installation, wiring or maintenance.
Photovoltaic glass blocks offer increased performance capabilities thanks to the powerful internal lithium battery (LiFePO4 3.2v) and high-luminosity LED diodes (3000-3500MCD).
The energy accumulated via the solar panel is stored in the high capacity battery and used to power the LEDs during the night, when the external luminosity drops below 30lux. The glass blocks are activated by a tiny light sensor, and remain illuminated until the external luminosity reaches 60lux — or the battery power drops below 2.4v.
The Photovoltaic collection is designed specifically for exterior use in commercial, public and residential applications, such as: walkways, sidewalks, bridges, balconies, patios, decks, gardens, as well as in exterior walls or panels.
