Mirror TV Glass

Beautiful Mirror TV Glass. 

Our Mirror TV glass is ideal for concealing digital TV displays, computer screens, tablet screens or video screens. The highly reflective mirror coating with clear substrate will provide a modern high-tech look in your home or business.

Effectively hides digital screens when they are not in use.

Asco Lights Media Room

Integrated into this design at Asco Lights is a TV, which is only visible once the TV is turned on.

Changing the way digital displays and video screens are presented, the Mirror TV glass looks like a normal mirror when the screen is turned off and when the screen is turned on, the images show through the mirror for a clear view of the screen content behind.

Typical uses are to disguise your TV at home or business, hotels, leisure. Often used within the digital signage sector, showing information on screen in a more dynamic way, such as weather information on show in the hotel bathroom mirror for instance.

Bespoke sizes are available with black borders painted to the rear of the glass for a seamless finish. The Mirror will have polished edges and is 6mm thick glass as standard.

10mm Glass Work Surfaces

Bespoke Glass Work Surfaces

There are many surfaces that can be used as a work surface but nothing compares to the high level of design, tactile touch and the durability of toughened 10mm satin or gloss glass.

If you are looking for that smart contemporary finish, then this should be the solution of choice.

10mm Satin or gloss glass can be used for kitchen worktops, breakfast bars, dining table tops or bathroom vanity tops, counter tops, desk tops, shelving, bar tops, media cabinet tops, working from home surfaces etc.10mm Satin Black 10mm Satin glass media cabinet top – Back painted in classic black – Haus12

Beautifully designed satin or gloss glass, back painted in any colour can totally transform the appearance of your kitchen or bathroom. Choose from our range of standard colours or provide a colour reference such as RAL, Farrow & Ball, NCS etc and we can match the colour chosen. The glass can be supplied without the paint treatment if that is the design of the space.

Gloss finished glass has a true sheen, the darker the colour the more the glass would act like a mirror! The satin finish is created by applying an acid etching process during production.  Acid-etched glass is the perfect choice for more complex, decorative designs. Acid-etching creates a distinctive, soft, smooth, tactile satin touch and appearance which gives a true frosted look. The process leaves a permanent design which will not peel, chip or wear down over time.

Generally, 10mm thick toughened glass is used as the work surface covering within your home or business, kitchen or bathroom. It is professionally painted to the rear of the glass and adhered to the surface being covered offering a seamless finish and to protect furniture. Creating the high level of design that a modern kitchen or bathroom deserves.

Satin Grey Table Top 10mm10mm Satin Glass dining table top – Back painted in grey.

Toughened glass is designed to withstand the high temperatures found within a kitchen hob area. The glass is none porous and hard waring. Once fitted and sealed with the supplied sealant then the solution will last for the duration of your kitchen. Although very tough, we would still suggest you place hot pans etc onto a trivet or board, just as you would with most alternative solutions.

We offer a none visible waterproof coating to the glass surface if desired, which makes for cleaning the glass much easier but it also offers a much more hygienic finish to the glass – Please request a proposal.

We also offer a full template & fit service, which removes all of the worry of measuring for the glass required. Socket cut outs, notches, holes, or drainer grooves and shapes can be fabricated by modern CNC machines. Please note that the cut outs can only be a minimum of 40mm from the edge of the glass – Any over hang as a breakfast bar would be a minimum of 300mm without support.

Our ten standard RAL colours are: Black 9005, white 9010, red 3000, pink 3015, pale blue 5024, dark blue 5002, grey 9007, pebble 7032, charcoal 7016 and silver 7001. We also offer a range of metallic paint finishes.

Please find colours here - https://www.ralcolorchart.com/

Please note, once the glass has been designed, fabricated it is then toughened and finally painted. Once the glass has been toughened there is no way to add further fabrication to the glass.

Sheet sizes – - Larger sizes could be available. Current supplies can be erratic, so please check at your time of ordering.

Illuminated Recycled Glass

Beautifully Illuminated Recycled Glass

Sun-Light Solutions represents one of the most innovative, pioneering and cutting edge solutions for the construction, design and architecture sectors. It is a material that is made from 100% recycled waste and can be returned to the glass production cycle after use. The use of this material allows creative freedom and functionality.

Illuminated Polar White Wall Cladding

Due to the unique arrangement of the recycled glass, you will always find a one-of-a-kind product that is unique in the world. Many hours of work go into every product that is created. The product is largely hand finished when it is precision cut, painstakingly sanded and meticulously polished. The attention to detail, the recycled material, the complex and environmentally friendly production process make this product something very special. A transfixing three dimensional effect is created when illuminated.

The main advantage of using this solution is not only its invaluable contribution to supporting the environment but the designer has the flexibility to chose a unique, exclusive and durable material that is produced under EU quality standards.

Recycled Glass in Brass trim

The recycled glass is produced in a range of different colours, Polar White, Green, Black, Jade, Sky Blue, Blue, Brown plus a new clear finish. The glass can be used with or without illuminating through the rear of the glass. Often used as splashbacks or indeed worktops, circular breakfast bars, the rear of drinks cabinets, bathroom features or used as the surface of furniture, be that a coffee table, dining table, bar top, illuminated lighting features. The use is limitless.

The material can be cut to size and shape including the fabrication of cut outs, holes etc.

Black Kitchen

We offer raw panels – with a maximum dimension of 2800 x 1250 mm (up to 3500 x 1500 mm on request) and a standard thickness of 20 mm (15-40 mm on request) – as well as specially cut panels for any type of object, be it in the interior design sector or as a facade.

 Blue Table

Create a stunning diffused lighting effect which avoids dazzle. We use UK, custom designed and produced LED light panels, which are fabricated to the size and shape of the glass and mounted to the rear of the glass. The light panels at a staggering 5mm depth can be a range of colour temperature settings or colour tuneable or indeed colour change. We can offer just on and off features or remote control dimming and light level setting. The solution can be controlled via voice control or controlled via the likes of Lutron, Crestron, DemoPad, Rako or amBX lighting control solutions. We will work with you regards the right solution for you.

Open pinholes and little bubbles can occur due to the natural recycled characteristic of the material with the polished and honed surface, these conforms to a standard finish. The glass is none porous and hard-waring although it is a none toughened solution.

The recycled glass is not only geared towards interior cladding and features, it is a perfect material for external facade and surfaces. Here it not only presents itself as a sustainable option with added optical qualities, but also offers additional technical and performance advantages. The solution has an FR class of A1 (non combustible) and is fully frost resistant; it is also impermeable to staining. During the production process we use no epoxy resins or adhesives and so the glass-like surface stands resistant against outside influences such as acid rain and UV damage. The materials colour is stable through its entire life which is imperative for facade uses.

Bio-Adaptive Lighting

Bio-adaptive Lighting – An overview by amBX

Understanding of the impact of light on human behaviour has advanced rapidly at the same time as lighting technology has undergone a major evolution with the advent of solid state lighting. It is now possible to use the principles of bio-adaptive lighting easily and cost-effectively in the workplace, at home and especially in sensitive environments such as schools and healthcare.

Results from recent case studies and research are very impressive and point the way towards harnessing the beneficial effects of lighting in new ways into many aspects of our lives. It’s not just about feeling better either; the right type and level of lighting can dramatically improve our performance of tasks and increase productivity and the lighting technology that is now being seen in the marketplace provides the means for everyone to realise the benefits of bio-adaptive lighting.

Bio-adaptive Lighting

The principle of bio-adaptive lighting is to provide artificial light controlled in such a way as to match the needs of human biological cycles, or circadian rhythms, in the most effective and appropriate way. It provides for improved health and wellbeing and supports aspects of human behaviour that benefit from varied and changeable lighting.

CircadianRythmWiki_2

We are all governed to some degree by the circadian cycle (which is a little over 24 hours long) and light information from the environment resets the circadian clock every day to keep us in step. Light is the most powerful synchronizer of the human circadian clock, and the timing of light exposure during the course of a day is responsible for how circadian rhythms are synchronized with the environment. For example: Late-evening light exposure delays circadian rhythms, resulting in later sleep and wake times, and early-morning light exposure advances these circadian rhythms, resulting in earlier sleep and wake times.

It’s not just about lighting cycles though, as colour plays an important part too. One study from the Light Research Program at Thomas Jefferson University in Philadelphia found that blue light strengthens and stimulates connections between areas of your brain that process emotion and language. This means that blue light may, in turn, help people to better handle emotional challenges and regulate mood over time1.

Blue light is prevalent in sunlight, so your body absorbs the most during the summer and much less in the winter. Because of this, the researchers suggested that adding blue light to indoor atmospheres, as opposed to the standard yellow lights typically used, may help boost mood and productivity year-round, and especially during the winter.

This doesn’t necessarily mean that we should all now have lots of different coloured lighting since blue is often in white light and having the ability to vary the colour of white light, or the colour temperature as it is known, is a critical factor in effective bio-adaptive lighting. Introducing colour changes and even tints at certain times of the day is a highly effective way to deliver good bio-adaptive lighting.

The physiological effects of using bio-adaptive lighting also stretch beyond managing our circadian rhythms more effectively when we spend so much time in artificial light. In 2010 studies also indicated positive effects of lighting of different colour temperatures on various physical, psychological and performance outcomes of children, such as dental health, physical growth and development, attendance, alertness and academic achievement2.

Another less physiological benefit of bio-adaptive lighting is handing control over the lighting to the individual affected by it. It sounds simple but there are very few office or workplace lighting installations that allow the Bio-adaptive Lighting workers to change the lighting. A study by the University of Exeter found that welfare and productivity are most likely to be optimized by practices that empower the workforce and that their experiments showed that empowerment was the key differentiating factor in increasing productivity by up to 32%3. Today the solutions now exist with the capability to provide this over the hugely important aspect of lighting.

The effect on humans

In the evolution of human beings we have been exposed to artificial light for an extremely short amount of time. However, many of us now spend most of our time under artificial light and until very recently this lighting experience has failed to reproduce the light experience for which we are “programmed”. “Studies have shown that light affects sleep habits, depression and mental functions,” says Terry McGowan, FIES, LC, director of engineering and technology for American Lighting Association “The term ‘healthy lighting’ has been used to indicate that light can act like a drug where the strength, timing and type of light can be used to alleviate problems and enhance well-being. The ‘prescription’ is simple: People need bright days and dark nights that match the natural day/night circadian cycle.”

In fact, the healthiest way to stimulate your circadian rhythms is by exposing yourself to bright daytime light, says Fred Oberkircher, FIESNA, Educational IALD, IDA, LC, and emeritus associate professor for Texas Christian University. “It needs to be bright enough that you get a significant amount of light into your eyes, which is good for your circadian rhythms,” Oberkircher adds. “At night, when you want to keep lighting to a minimum, it’s a good idea to use controls such as dimmers. In this way, you can customise the lighting to fit your natural circadian rhythm.”

Something else to keep in mind: As people age, it becomes harder for them to adapt to changes in the amount of light to which they’re exposed. “Older people’s sleep and wake cycles are harder to maintain if they are not exposed to daylight early in the day and sleep in a dark room at night,” McGowan says. “Even the colour of the light is important.

The human circadian system is more sensitive to the blue portion of the spectrum than other colours, so it may be beneficial to limit the blue content of lights used for illumination during the evening.” The bluer the light, the greater the stimulation to our circadian rhythms, Oberkircher says. “Your circadian system is quite biased to blue light – so exposing yourself to blue light at night will delay your sleep,” he adds. “The blue light will suppress melatonin in your system and make you more alert. So it’s best to limit your evening lighting to warmer-coloured light.”

The wavelength of visible light determines its colour and recent research has identified the impact from certain wavelengths. For example a study by the School of Psychology in Adelaide showed that the shorter wavelengths of 470, 497, and 525 nm showed the greatest melatonin suppression from 65% to 81%. It is important to manage certain wavelengths of the visible light spectrum at the right times in order to deliver effective bio-adaptive lighting.

The role of the colour of light is key to effective bio-adaptive lighting. In a study into lighting and clinical depression, people who were exposed to bright blue light for an hour each morning for just three weeks experienced more improvements in their depressive symptoms than the control group, which was exposed to red light. They also had increased levels of melatonin in the evening, which helps with sleep and regulating the internal body clock, and lower levels of the stress hormone cortisol. Further, the improvements felt by the light-therapy group were comparable to those experienced by using antidepressant drugs4.

In another study exposure to blue LED was shown to affect sleep quality and median body temperature peak in Alzheimer’s disease patients. Median body temperature peak was delayed by approximately two hours after exposure to blue LEDs compared with exposure to red LEDs and sleep quality was improved. This pilot study demonstrated that light, especially LED lights can be an important contribution to helping such patients regulate their circadian functions5.

A study in the Netherlands found that increasing illuminance levels in schools at certain times and changing the colour temperature of the lights indicated a positive influence pupils’ concentration6. The Philips Schoolvision case study in Hamburg showed remarkable results from applying controllable adaptive lighting in a school environment and empowering the teachers with the ability to affect the lighting conditions. Reading speed increased by almost 35%, concentration improved dramatically and the frequency of errors dropped by almost 45%. Hyperactivity and aggression were also examined. Although the perceived reduction in aggression was not found to be significant, video evidence showed a distinct change in levels of hyperactivity. Observed hyperactivity was reduced by up to 76% when pupils were given a mathematical problem to solve under the Calm lighting scene, a figure that the baseline measurement and control group did not even come close to.

One of the more high profile examples is from NASA who is spending £7m to replace fluorescent lighting in the International Space Station with LEDs so that the colour, intensity and timing of lighting can be controlled to help astronauts sleep better and awake refreshed.

The Visible Light Spectrum Over the past decade, neuro-scientific research has uncovered the existence of a previously unknown non-visual optic pathway modulated by the substance melanopsin (which has a unique sensitivity to distinct parts of the visible light spectrum). Unlike other projections of the visual system, these pathways seem to play a minimal role in perception and processing of vision and image-formation; instead they have been found to be fundamentally responsible for entrainment and maintenance of circadian rhythms and other physiological functions. They also had increased levels of melatonin in the evening, which helps with sleep and regulating the internal body clock, and lower levels of the stress hormone cortisol. Further, the improvements felt by the light-therapy group were comparable to those experienced by using antidepressant drugs4.

In another study exposure to blue LED was shown to affect sleep quality and median body temperature peak in Alzheimer’s disease patients. Median body temperature peak was delayed by approximately two hours after exposure to blue LEDs compared with exposure to red LEDs and sleep quality was improved. This pilot study demonstrated that light, especially LED lights can be an important contribution to helping such patients regulate their circadian functions5.

Bio-adaptive lighting in context

At work Perhaps the most important consideration for lighting in the workplace is the use of natural daylight, however many work environments rely on artificial light either wholly or partially. Here, the lighting should ideally be capable of delivering varying levels of illuminance and also colour, especially ranges of cool to warm whites and be subject to control systems capable of delivering bio-adaptive effects. In particular workers should be empowered with control over their own individual lighting as far as possible and where practical. The good news is that lights are becoming available for these purposes in standard office configurations and control systems such as amBX are capable of delivering bio-adaptive lighting effects as well as multi-faceted controls.

Lighting can energise working environments through increased illuminance and changes in colour temperature and when delivered at the right time of day can have a powerful impact on worker wellbeing and productivity.

At home

In addition to simple settings for comfort, reading etc. lighting can be used in many ways to deliver the benefits of bio-adaptive lighting in the home. With appropriate lighting fixtures and controls lighting that supports circadian rhythms can be used widely and products such as Philips Hue and Photonstar Halcyon are good examples of controllable colour-changing lighting that is available today.

Where there is a greater need for lighting to support medical conditions there are emerging solutions which offer sophisticated control capability which can support recommended treatment with light in the home.

Healthcare & wellbeing

Apart from the implications for the use of lighting to assist in treatments of certain conditions there are a number of real world examples where controllable and adaptive lighting has delivered significant benefits.

Sun-Light Solutions dealer ‘Little Islands’ is a driving force in providing support for dementia care. Their senior staff are highly experienced in both the design of dementia care environments and the provision of specialist equipment, including a Hi-Tech sensory room called the ‘LifeHouse’. LifeHouse is a self contained sensory room installed into care homes in the UK offering technology, including mood enhancing lighting, to aid calmness and inclusion but also offer LifeStory, a multimedia ‘life story’ of the dementia sufferers which allows them to reach back in time of happiness.

Lifehouse Sensory room

Lifehouse Sensory room

Philips Helawell uses a combination of dynamic and intelligent white light and ambient colour light with patient and staff controls to deliver light that is tuned to support the biological clock and creates a pleasant ambience for patients and visitors, thus supporting the healing environment. The HealWell lighting solution resulted in:

• Improved patient and staff satisfaction

• Longer sleep duration for patients

• Shorter time to fall asleep for patients, enhanced mood of patients

A pilot at the NHS Rotherham hospital in UK showed that these kinds of benefits can be achieved for the same cost as lighting in a standard ward and with accompanying savings in energy and maintenance costs.

One study6 examined the effect of different illumination levels on pharmacists’ prescription-dispensing error rate and found that error rates were reduced when work-surface light levels were relatively high. This is consistent with findings from other settings that show that task performance improves with increased light levels. Task-related lighting settings and controls also clearly have a role to play in adapting lighting to improve outcomes.

There is no doubt that employing bio-adaptive lighting in healthcare has a beneficial effect for patients as well as staff. Improving light levels and empowering staff with control is a key factor in realising the benefits as well as introducing lighting that can support circadian rhythms.

Education Studies such as the Philips Schoolvision project have shown how bio-adaptive lighting can be used in schools with very positive outcomes, especially from the staff that were given control over the lighting. A further study in the Netherlands7 used different light scenes through the school day to support pupil’s rhythms and aid concentration on tasks:

 Energy setting. This setting is intended to be used to activate the pupils at the start of the day or after lunch. A cold “blue-rich” white light.

 Focus setting. This setting aids concentration during challenging tasks, such as exams and tests. A bright white light was used.

 Calm setting. This setting brings a relaxing ambience to support independent and collaborative learning. This delivered a white light with a warm, red colour tone.

Certain specialist in the UK have embraced the principle and taken it further with sensory environments designed for special needs education (SEN) which create a safe controllable space for calming and stimulating experiences. Learning opportunities are delivered in a totally immersive way involving lighting for people of different needs and abilities. These examples have shown that attention span, concentration and behaviour is significantly improved through the use of dedicated light settings. When designed for, and integrated into the school’s activity bio-adaptive lighting supports student activity in a very positive way.

Retail

Applying the principles of bio-adaptive lighting to the retail environment can bring a number of benefits for staff and shoppers alike. Lighting can be adapted to the time of day, season of the year and even the ambient daylight conditions without detraction from retail display. With LED lighting and new standards of control available today retailers can add the ability to change, adapt and improve their environments at the same time as they look to take advantage of the energy and running cost benefits of LED lighting.

Hospitality

Venues and hospitality facilities have much to gain from adopting bio-adaptive lighting. Apart from the ability to create the perfect ambience and have flexibility in the lighting system, consideration now has to be given to the power of lighting to influence emotion and visitors response to events.

8 Northumberland in London already promotes its ability to energise conference audiences and add impact to presentations with dynamic lighting effects. They even offer daylight underground as a way of keeping participants engaged throughout the day where there is no real daylight. The colours and movement of daylight are reproduced within the space in subtle ways which go unnoticed but support circadian rhythms.

Lighting is also used for combatting the effects of jetlag with introduction into hotels and even early attempts at managing the lighting in flight. The Hotel Rafayel in London offers jetlag recovery lighting in a number of rooms and 8 Northumberland have jetlag lighting scenes in their function rooms for use by delegates. The management of environments for maximum comfort and effect will include these aspects of lighting control in the hospitality sector as awareness increases and the cost and simplicity of implementation reduces.

Summary

The benefits of bio-adaptive lighting are becoming well defined and clearer and are applicable in many fields of lighting. Importantly, the advent of digital lighting and its inherent ability to deliver far greater levels of fine-grained control renders this capability at affordable and economic cost levels into many lighting installations today and we can expect this to extend to mass market and commodity-type lighting in the not too distant future.

Companies such as amBX need to be able to support the design and implementation of lighting which delivers the benefits that are clearly there for wellbeing, therapeutic and educational outcomes and productivity. The design and simplicity of lighting control will need to enable users to take real advantage of bio-adaptive lighting without technical and knowledge barriers getting in the way so that this powerful aspect of artificial lighting can become second nature when we think about lighting in our lives.

The technology and a lot of deep understanding is available today so all that remains is for everyone involved in lighting and with a desire to improve living, working caring and learning environments to embrace bio-adaptive lighting and seek how to improve our world.
