What makes a successful sport facility lighting system?


Choosing a new lighting system for a sporting facility is a big investment. A well designed system with good use of products can ensure your facility will be well lit for years to come. There are many factors to think of including light pollution, running costs and maintenance of the system.


A well designed system should be durable and hard wearing as it has to withstand the elements for years to come. Floodlights should have hot dipped galvanised columns and the lights themselves should be designed to a high specification with cabling that meets all the British and European Standards. Kingfisher Exterior Lighting is a leading supplier of exterior lighting equipment. They use specialised software to produce complex visuals and illumination drawings and have a dedicated team to produce designs for any sporting application from multi use games areas to international stadia. They specialise in sports facility lighting and because of this have a dedicated Sports Lighting Manager, Neil Johnson. Neil has worked on many projects including Lord’s Cricket Ground, Kempton Park Racecourse and even helped design two of the 2012 Olympics and Paralympic venues.

Kingfisher Exterior Lighting produce a variety of products for the sports facility lighting sector including the SCORPIUS sports floodlight. This is a high performance, asymmetric floodlight which is suitable for the side lighting of both small and medium sized sports facilities. The product has a die case aluminium


body, with a precision reflector made of aluminium. The glass is 5mm thick and toughened to increase safety and durability. The retaining gasket is silicon and provides ingress protection to IP65 and also features a patented IP66 anti vacuum in polymide. The steel mounting strip is made from hot dipped galvanised steel and there is a remote control gear for easy positioning of the floodlight. The device is available with narrow and medium beam optics to maximise the design and the light fitting can be accessed from the back so no need to adjust the flood or remove the glass when changing the lamp. The luminaire has high efficiency due to the use of high quality purity aluminium reflectors and the high transmission clear glass, this provides a coefficient light transmission of >90 per cent. The angle of incidence of the 45° maximum beam intensity reduces the reflected light and provides higher light transmission
