Facility: Carriage Club – Kansas City

Electrical Contractor:  Self-Installed

“From the customer service to the high-quality product, LED Direct was the clear choice for this project.”

James Wolf, The Carriage Club

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 DETAILS:

PROBLEM:

  • 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.
