“From the customer service to the high-quality product, LED Direct was the clear choice for this project.”
THE RESULTS: We increased the light level more than 3 times while reducing the energy over 70%
Increased light levels from 25 foot candles (a unit of measurement for illumination) to 75 foot candles
Reduced wattage usage by 70%
Eliminated the maintenance costs of the tennis court lighting for 10 years
Beautified the tennis courts with precise illumination.
- The chief problem was that the courts were not well lit
- Another problem was that the maintenance costs on the high-intensity discharge lamps were very high
- The facility had to rent a specialty lift every time they needed to work on the fixtures because they could not disturb the court surfaces
- This required thousands of dollars every time the lighting needed work
WHAT WE DID
- We designed a specific light layout through photometric reports to give a precision light capable of complete coverage for sports lighting.
- We used a high-quality product which has a 10-year warranty, thereby eliminating maintenance costs for the facility for the next 10 years.
WHY WE CHOSE THIS SOLUTION:
- Because it was a tennis court, a lot of light needed to be directed to the playing surface, and almost none just outside the playing area, so that we would not disturb neighboring spaces.
- We needed a precision product: the Finney series allowed us to design the optics of the light to meet the exact parameters of the courts.
