Our Sports Lighting Service

Sports lighting is very specific dependant on the requirements of the individual sports that are played within any sports facility.

There are light level recommendations that are set out by Sport England (and other governing bodies) our in-house lighting design team are able to advise of the most cost effective LED lighting solution to suit your individual sports requirements.

We work closely with clients to be able to provide exactly what products are required to create not only a great energy saving solution, but also often improve the environment for the players too.

Whether the area is indoor or outdoor, Prolite can provide cutting edge high quality LED products to suit your requirements.

Indoor Sports Lighting Project Example 1 – Babington Community College

Babington Community College are a specialist sports college located in Leicester.

They were looking for a 3-year maintenance free solution for their sports block, including external car park areas, gymnasium, walkways and their specialist Badminton court area.

The lighting system already in place used a mixture of power hungry fluorescent, metal halide and sodium lighting units. These needed frequent maintenance and the light levels for the Badminton court area were below specifications set out by Sport England.

The lights needed to offer a strong return on investment, reduce maintenance costs, have a high illumination level, a low energy usage and have minimal recycling costs.

Indoor Sports Lighting Project Example 2

The client’s tennis facility were looking to upgrade their out-dated lighting units to an ultra-efficient LED lighting system, this needed to offer reduced maintenance costs as lamp changes and cleaning of the old Metal Halide fittings was required yearly to keep light levels as high as possible for the task. The light levels for the court area were below specifications set out by Sport England even with the efforts of the client’s maintaining the fittings every 6 months.

The client also ran the lights all day due to the cold re-strike characteristics of the current system meant that courts could not be used straight away upon entrance of the players using the courts. The Prolite LED system solved all of these issues for the client whilst offering a return on investment on materials in under 1.3 years!
