  • superficieTotal Area - 10 M2
  • electricidad generadaElectricity generated in 35 years  - 22.659 kWh
  • puntos de luzTotal lighting points operating 4 hours per day in 35 years - 45 lighting points
  • emisiones CO2 evitadasAvoided CO2 emmisions in 35 years - 15 CO2
  • barriles petroleo ahorradosBarrels of oil saved in 35 years - 13 barrels

 

 

The non-slip semi-transparent tiles forming the floor convert the solar radiation into energy by means of semiconductors. The total installed power capacity is 405 Wp, sufficient to power the 450 LED lights backlighting the walkway.

 

Thanks to the breakthroughs achieved by the company’s R&D&i Department, this solution fulfils the highest technical standards; it complies with non-slip regulations and withstands 400 kg in the momentary load tests, and its installation is very simple, as it is laid like a raised floor, with plots.

 

Onyx Solar® has received awards on many occasions for developing and patenting the first non-slip photovoltaic glass floor in the world.
