Perhaps your high school just got some grant money to build a football field. Or maybe a wealthy donor just underwrote a new little league baseball field for your town. Whatever the case may be, if you're building an outdoor sports venue, you're going to have to find a way to light it for nighttime events.
It could be high schools, colleges, parks, or a professional stadium. No matter what the venue, high-quality sports field lighting will help the athletes see the action and the spectators enjoy the game. As a result, you want to make sure you get the lighting right the first time without any costly mistakes.
This article will look at what it takes to light an outdoor sports venue and how LightMart.com's Power Bar Sports Lighting Package is the sports lighting solution that can work for you.
What Kind of Lighting Is Best for Outdoor Sports?
If you are trying to light an outdoor sports venue, you need to have the right light and the right sports lighting manufacturer. Some might think that you can use the same type of lights and fixtures that you use for indoor sports venues, but that is not the case. You also can't use standard lights that light a parking lot, street, or highway. They just won't work well because you have to take into account the varying degrees of height, distance, and brightness that may be involved in your particular venue. The lumens you need to light an indoor basketball court are just not the same as the lumens you need to light an outdoor baseball field.
Outdoor sports venues require light that is bright enough to light the playing area so players and spectators can see the action. The light also needs to be unobtrusive to the players' and spectators' vision since too much glare from the lights will interfere with viewing. The players won't be able to see the ball and the spectators will miss out on what's happening on the field. The balance that's required involves the right combination of light, light placement, and brightness.
Traditional sports lighting used Metal Halide lights. These lights were heavy, took a long while to come to full brightness, were not energy efficient, and had to be replaced often. As a result, they were expensive and required high maintenance. Now, the easy choice is LED pole light for sports. LED light fixtures are lighter, they have a longer life span, they're more energy-efficient, and come to full brightness immediately. LEDs do not need to be maintained as often and they produce more light with less energy.
As an example, an old-style metal-halide 400-watt bulb produced 21,000 lumens while a 150-watt LED light produces the same number of lumens. As a result, you save money on maintenance because you don't have to change bulbs as often. You also save money on your energy costs because you're getting the same brightness with fewer watts.
