Outdoor Sports Lighting Solutions

Sports stadium lighting is a specialized lighting system specifically for large outdoor sports venues and civil training grounds.

1. Illumination Standards

The Illuminating Engineering Society of North America (IESNA) has established guidelines for sports lighting. They provide recommendations for illuminance levels (measured in lux) required for different sports activities, such as football, soccer, baseball, tennis, etc., to ensure adequate lighting for players, officials, and spectators.

The recommendations provided above are general guidelines and can be adjusted based on specific needs and preferences.

2. Uniformity

Uniformity of lighting refers to the consistency of lighting levels across the playing surface. It is important to minimize dark spots or shadows that can affect gameplay or viewing experience. Typically, a minimum uniformity ratio is specified to ensure balanced light distribution. Higher uniformity ratios indicate more consistent lighting across the field, reducing shadows and ensuring better visibility for players and officials.

3. Glare Control

Glare, caused by excessive brightness or contrasting lighting conditions, can be distracting for players and spectators. Lighting fixtures should be designed to minimize glare and follow guidelines regarding cutoff angles and light shieldings. Lower UGR values signify less glare and better visual quality.
Specific lighting design, fixture positioning, and shielding techniques used can influence the actual glare ratings achieved. Lighting professionals and designers should consider various factors such as lighting layout, luminaire selection, and glare control measures to achieve the desired glare ratings while providing optimal illumination for sports fields.

4. Flicker Control & Broadcasting Requirements

Flickering lights can be disorienting and affect visual perception, it is essential to choose lighting systems with flicker-free operation and a high refresh rate to ensure smooth and consistent illumination. Meanwhile, No-flicker is also a requirement for TV Broadcasting live games events.
Sports events often require good lighting conditions for filming and broadcasting purposes. Lighting systems should care about color rendering, and flicker control to ensure high-quality televised coverage.

5. Durability And Weather Resistance

Outdoor sports lighting systems must withstand environmental factors such as wind, rain, temperature variations, and even potential impacts from flying balls or equipment. Lights with appropriate protection against weather conditions should be selected.

6. Energy Efficiency

With the focus on sustainability, energy efficiency is an important consideration. LED lighting systems are widely used due to their high efficiency, long lifespan, and ability to be controlled and dimmed as needed.

In summary, when designing standard luminaires for sports stadium lighting, factors such as illuminance standards, uniformity, glare control, flicker control, energy efficiency, durability, weather resistance, and broadcasting requirements should all be carefully considered to create an optimal lighting experience for players, officials, and spectators.

SB06 quick replacable lens 4-in-1 Power&3-in-1 CCT tunable led area light

SB06 is a smart area light that allows quick lens replacement without tools. This feature is particularly beneficial for distributors as it allows them to reduce inventory pressure and maintain a fit inventory. By being able to easily swap out lenses, distributors can adjust the lighting options based on customer demands without having to stock multiple variations of the entire light fixture. This flexibility can help streamline inventory management and reduce costs associated with excess inventory.

SB05 most intelligent self R&D 4-in-1 Power&3-in-1 CCT tunable led area light

As for the light fixtures specifically designed to illuminate large outdoor areas at night, like athletic field, pedestrian walkway, parking lot, loading dock or roadway, it’s very important to find an smart and super performance LED area light to sufficiently illuminate your space, because this can save maintenance costs, and bring a good use experience. Combining these requirements, we developed SB05 led area light, wattage & CCT tunable, up to 160lm/W, three sizes, five kinds of installation methods, just to give you a variety of application options.

SL05 modular design & high strength structure LED street light.

Correct LED street lighting must guarantee maximum visual quality, safety and energy efficiency. The goal of street lighting is therefore to allow citizens to move in total safety with excellent visibility conditions, at the same time, save on energy costs. SL05 adopt spray paint polishing technology, PC lens + glass, silicone seal and flip cover design, more safety and easy maintain. Widely used in stadium, sports field, high mast lighting, light tower, ports lighting and so on.
