Photoluminescent and fluorescent terrazzo
Eterno Luminoso and Lumineo add luminescence to terrazzo flooring. Specially treated, masked aggregates can be evenly distributed over the surface or grouped in patterns, like circles, lines, or arrows, and can provide safety features in the dark or striking effects under black light. Under normal light conditions, Eterno Lumineo is similar in appearance to traditional terrazzo floor.
Eterno Luminoso combines the durability of terrazzo with functional and decorative after-glow effects. While traditional floor safety markings are obtrusive, this material’s luminance complies with the concept of “hidden safety,” referring to an autonomously operating, reliable evacuation-guidance system that is noticeable only during light failure. Eterno Luminoso may enhance evacuations and mitigate panic, particularly in buildings where emergency exits may not be obvious. It is also appropriate for decorative purposes in theaters, discotheques, or cinemas. Eterno Lumineo is available in different colors.
