OUR LIGHTING SOLUTIONS

SPORTS FIELD LIGHTING CAN STIR UP EMOTIONS

Lighting solutions can become a nightmare – for neighbors, who cannot sleep well anymore, but also for sports clubs and communities. They have to handle more and more complaints and oppositions from annoyed neighbors. Lighting companies propose costly measures to reduce stray light hitting neighbored residential areas, however, these provide only partial relief and are therefore not effective. In the end, nobody is happy, and a lot of time and attention has been spent on the issue. Such conflicts will become even more frequent in the future, with increasing density of residential constructions.

PEACE OF MIND WITH SPL SOLUTIONS

Our lighting solutions do not cause such conflicts. For the first time ever, a sports field can be illuminated without any nuisance, in complete harmony with nature and the environmental protection laws. They do not allow light to propagate outside the target zone, and therefore light pollution is prevented. Players and spectators alike benefit from the high visual comfort, and residents and wildlife are left untouched from undesired light.

A TYPICAL PROJECT WITH SPL:

  1. Upon a first on site visit we record all relevant data such as geometry, size, mast height and position, desired surfaces to be illuminated, further objects and buildings, status of the electrical and mechanical installations 
  2. We establish a simulation of the illumination using the gathered data and prepare a quotation for you.
  3. After your purchase order we use the data from the simulation to custom build your lighting system. Every projector is intended for its specific position. 
  4. As soon as the production is finished, they will be mounted in their specific positions. Our projectors are easy to mount, always horizontally. There is no need for laser aiming systems. Thus, mounting our lighting systems is extremely simple and straightforward.
  5. After the installation, we carry out the measurement of the lux level as soon as possible and document the installation using drone photographs.

Of course, our lighting systems conform to all relevant laws and norms.
