The Implaser R+D+i department in collaboration with innovative enterprises have developed this new product, which is specially designed to be installed in public areas, such as Metro and railway stations, etc. where it is necessary to advise people of the platform edge location to prevent from falling over both in normal and emergency situations with no light.
This floor tile is composed of satin porcelain stoneware of size 400×400 mm and 17,5 mm thick, and photoluminescent pavement according to UNE 23035/4:2003 (ISO 17398 Class D) of size 100×400 mm, that when arranged in a linear way serves as a delimitation of the edge of railway platforms. Thanks to its anti-slip properties Class 3 according to UNE-ENV 12633, this product becomes a very slip resistant tile suitable for high traffic of people. The luminance properties of the photoluminescent strip make this product visible during hours even in total darkness, as long as the product has been previously exposed to natural or artificial light. Its use does not entail any energetic cost, and thanks to its photoluminescent pigments from which it is manufactured, the product provides unlimited charge and discharge cycles.
These tiles have been already installed in Madrid’s Metro/ Light Rail Tram with excellent results.
