Lighting for sports facilities
The success of sports and training depends on the quality of the lighting of sports facilities
High-quality lighting of sports facilities:
· Gives the opportunity to see playground and game items for athletes, officials, spectators in the stands
· Do not dazzle
· Safe for players and spectators (meets hygiene standards)
· Energy efficiency with a high level of illumination
Sport lighting can no be the same standard as street or park. During it organization such factors should be taken into account: kind of sport, area of premises, conditions of using of sports facilities, number of spectators. If the lighting is correct the athletes do not feel discomfort and show the high results, and spectators see what is happening on the playground with the smallest details.
We offer ourservices ofdevelopment ofsport lighting project, will providewith freelighting calculations, and will performthe delivery, installation andadjustment oflighting equipment.
Lighting for stadiums
The special spotlights are used for functional lighting of stadiums. They are mounted on high towers on the edges of fields. Spotlights that are used of the sport grounds should provide the direct luminous flux of high intensity. The stronger it is, the higher you can set the light source.
There are different levels of illumination of football fields for various classes of games according to the standard EN 12193:1999 in Europe. The minimum level of lighting is 120 lux for entry-level clubs and 350 lux for professional games. It is necessary to watch out for uniform illumination in addition to the minimum illumination during the design of the lighting of football stadiums. Requirements for lighting are changed during the television broadcast of the game: 1200 lux - 1400 lux - illuminance on the vertical plane. Mast, straight or mixed systems are used for stadium lighting.
Lighting for sports pools
Swimming pool lighting must be done with the use of lamps that are protected against high humidity and direct contact with water. There are high demands to the luminous flux and security of equipment such as lighting for swimming pools. Especially it is true for devices that should be installed directly underwater in the pool.
Lighting for ice rink
It is important to solve the task of ice-rink lighting with special responsibility. Strategically location of the lamps and ventilation system, which protect against the danger of condensation on the ice, is the main thing.
The lighting of the ice-rink should be made with the means of lighting equipment, which have the shock proof design (durable housing and protected optical part). Lamps for ice-rink must withstand even the bounce hockey puck, which often happens during the competition or training.
Lamps for gyms
Lighting for tennis courts
Lighting for tennis courts are made with regard to the type of object. If it is an open area, the light sources are the spotlights, which are installed on poles, which allows the uniformly illuminate of the entire field, without the glare effect for athletes. Is case of indoor courts the equipment is the same for gyms. Our specialist will make the calculations (number, power, placement of lamps) in dialux program, with taking into account that the project should be economical.
There are different levels of illumination in horizontal and vertical planes for various classes of games as well as uneven lighting according to the European standard EN 12193:1999. The average level of illumination for tennis court is 75 lux, 200 lux, 500 lux (for 1st, 2nd and 3rd classes of the game).
In addition to the minimum illumination during the design of tennis court lighting it is necessary to watch the simulating effect of the light, the lighting uniformity and lighting in the vertical plane. The mainvariant oftennis courtlighting is thetop-side, which createthe highcontrast withthe background and the balland hasthe leastglare tothe players. Spotlights are placedon atleast 12 msupports, whichare placedalong thelong sidesof thecourt withthe direction of lighting across the longitudinal axis of the tennis court.
The mounting of the top-side sportlighting canbe alsomade withthe meansof sportssuspension lampsand spotlights mounted on theropes and stretched between supports, which are installed outside the tennis court. Lighting equipment should be located along the side lines outside the area of the court and have an inclination towards its longitudinal axis.
