The Valkea floor clock

Electro Waves is happy to receive unique wishes, and one of these was the illuminated floor clock at the Valkea shopping center in Oulu. The project began when the shopping center designer came up with an idea of embedding a LED clock with a two-meter diameter into the floor. They wanted an unilluminated area indicating seconds, minutes and hours and the possibility to change colours.

The requirements for the project were:
– Ability to withstand the weight of a vehicle
– Ability to withstand the water used for washing the floor
– Ability to withstand installation into a cast
– Maintenance access from the top
– Timed startup
– Scratch-proof glass that isn’t slippery
