Light GB Panel

Panels made of innovative glass components (called “LightGB”) provided with a special thermal belt for highly insulating power and integrated with LEDs for luminescent and smart facades, roofs and indoor applications.

The colour of the LED can be varied to obtain different light conditions and effects.

In addition, thank to the Li-Fi (Light-Fidelity) technology, the products can be used for remote building control and monitoring, or for add purposes.

The Light GB Panels are dry assembled and prestressed and can be used for the construction of building facades and roofs, internal and external partitions.

SBskin dry assembly system VS traditional mortar-based assembly system

With the innovative SBskin assembly systems, only 30 minutes are needed to assemble a 2 sqm panel, as opposed to what happens with mortar-based solutions which depend on curing time. This results in significant time and money savings without compromising the quality of the result. In the case of the Light products, in particular, the dry assembly also guarantees a correct and precise connection of the LED devices, through customized weatherproof connections.

With the traditional mortar-based assembly systems, the quality of the construction of the building element (façade, roof, internal partition…) is strictly related to the specific, local labor skills. On the contrary, the dry prefabricated SBskin panels allows for a perfect realization of translucid building elements with only 2 mm joints between the glass blocks.

SBskin’s panels are also prestressed to resist earthquakes and wind forces, allowing for high-rise building installations.

Besides the enhanced insulation power, the use of plastic profiles to assemble the panels allows for an easy maintenance and dismantlement, recyclability of the subcomponents and a high product customizability.

Advantages of the dry assembly system

  • Ideal for curtain-wall application;
  • Time for construction: 30 min for 2 sqm;
  • Joints: 2 mm;
  • Results independent of labor skill;
  • High mechanical features to resist earthquakes and wind force;
  • Recyclable, dismountable, easy maintenance;
  • Customizability;
  • Thermal insulation.

Traditional mortar-based assembly system

  • Placement occurring on an existing substructure;
  • Time of construction: dependent on mortar curing time;
  • Joints: 5-10 mm;
  • Results dependant on labor skill;
  • Limited mechanical features to resist earthquakes and wind force.

Notes

The features of the panels depend on those of the constituting glass components. The Light GB will be available in a variety of configurations in order to respond to different requirements in terms of safety, appearance, and so on...
The Light GB Panel show a wide flexibility in terms of appearance, which can depend on the color of the plastic supporting elements of the panel and, most importantly, on the variations of light intensity and of the color range of the LEDs.
