Following the implementation of glass walls, squash court manufacturer ASB has launched its GlassFloor technology in what it claims is "being hailed as the next step in squash court evolution."

It had a trial debut run at the Professional Squash Association World Tour Finals in Egypt last year.

Now it has been approved for use at all major Egyptian events, including this year's Finals.

"I absolutely love it," said world number one Ali Farag.

"The first time I played on it, if you had blindfolded me and I stepped on court and ran, I wouldn't be able to tell you whether it was a glass floor or wooden floor.

"But the best thing about the glass floor is that it's always steady.

"There are no grooves in it, there are no ups and downs from the sun, like the wooden floor if put under the sun.

"Sometimes the wood can crack or it can be deformed somehow in some shape or form, but the glass floor is very steady and I love that.

"So yes, for me I prefer the glass floor to be honest."

The latest GlassFloor court is a combination of light-emitting diode lines and a 6x4 LED video infield.

It is set to be unveiled this month at the Ballsport Arena Asbach in the German city of Augsburg.

The technology can be used for coaching purposes, as testified by renowned Australian trainer Shaun Moxham.

"I love the possibility of using the LED lighting underneath the floor for teaching purposes," Moxham said.

"For the players to be able to see where to hit the ball and or position themselves in action or on demand with video analysis is extremely helpful.

"The quality of the bounce is phenomenal.

"It is always even and true.

"I immediately saw the benefits of zero or virtually no maintenance whatsoever.

"No black marks or sanding required.

"In terms of promoting our sport through innovation and visual aid, the glass floor is as big a breakthrough as the glass back wall!"
