Phosphorous shine

lumaglas

Lumaglass™ makes use of Electroluminescent (EL) light in a film form which is fixed onto the inside of the profiled glass panels. This EL Lamp works by using an alternating current that excites phosphor crystals, which in turn emit light. Lumaglass™ is an environmental friendly light that requires low energy consumption and little to no maintenance. LumaglassTM has been launched by Westcrowns Contracting Services group. This light will never burn out completely!
