compared to fittings with higher angles of incidence.


The SCORPIUS is compatible with a wide range of high performance lamp options, which gives the facility fitting it the flexibility to satisfy a variety of lighting applications for professional sports lighting.


The flood light also helps reduce light pollution as the SCORPIUS range offers three external cowl options to maintain full cut off of upward light while still achieving maximum main beam at 55°, 60° and 65°.


This range is easy to install and maintenance time is reduced with the rear access. Adjustments can be made simply with the use of a single adjustment screw and goniometer on the standard mounting bracket.


Abacus Lighting also specialise in sport facility lighting and recently were commissioned to complete an innovative refurbishment project which provides a much improved sports facility for the local community in Albert Park, Salford. The project was part of the Sport England Inspired facility programme which is a group focused on making it easier for local community and volunteer groups to improve and refurbish sports clubs.

Albert Park is a community run sports


facility, providing the local community with a facility they can hire out in the evenings and even use for free at certain times. Abacus’ maintenance department visited the site to investigate the lighting system and decide what they could offer to update the facility. They worked with all parties to ensure a high performing, energy efficient system was delivered.


Abacus Maintenance Manager, Rob Eadson, commented “It was really rewarding to be able to work with Albert’s and the local council and be able to help them deliver such an important community project”.


Abacus was able to provide a complete


turnkey solution; fitting new columns and electrical system. Abacus Raise and Lower columns were utilised for lower maintenance costs and reduced disruption when changing lamps.


Rob Eadson continued “This will result in


greater availability of the facility for the community”.


The venue managed to secure a grant


from the London 2012 Olympic Legacy under the Sport England Inspired Facilities Programme, where National Lottery funding is available to help refurbish or upgrade tired or worn out local sports


facilities. The aim of this scheme is to allow local communities the opportunity to utilise facilities and encourage people to become more active.


This new lighting system was a huge success and means that the facility can be used throughout the day and in to the evening. Abacus was proud to be part of this project and help this community to enjoy their sporting facility. Through the use of well designed outdoor floodlights both professional and amateur sporting events can now take place all year round and with grants available to update old fashioned lighting systems, these facilities should become more and more utilised.
