Sports Lighting

Sports Lighting Australia

The roar of the crowd, the cheers of excitement, and the muted murmurs during moments of uncertainty. A cricket match, rugby or footy game, greyhound track or even a tense game of tennis would be a very different experience without a live audience. But who would want to watch any sporting activities live if they struggled to see what was going on as soon as the sky clouded over, or the sun began to set? Not to mention how this would affect the players ability to see where the ball is. Without great sports lighting, all sporting activity would be limited to daylight hours on clear and sunny days.

From athletic fields and racing tracks to rugby and cricket stadiums, indoor and outdoor courts, and all too easily forgotten golf courses. There is an art to designing and installing sports lighting to ensure that all the action is visible without any glare. So, when it comes to replacing a failed ballast or sports lights that have burnt-out, you want the support of experts to ensure you replace them with professional grade equipment that delivers the same results.

And there are critical factors you need to consider when looking at replacements. Regardless of whether you are still using high-intensity discharge (HID) lamps–such as metal halide lamps or high-pressure sodium lamps–or have made the switch to cost-saving LEDs flood and sporting lights.

Sports Lighting Beam Angle

Beam angle refers to the angle from maximum light intensity to where it drops to 50%. When installed, each of your lights would have been positioned to ensure the overlap on beam angles created 100% illumination. Choosing the wrong beam angle when replacing any lights can have a considerable impact on how well your venue is lit. If you’re ever not sure, get professional advice.

Light Colour

The colour of the light emitted by lamps and lighting systems used in sports venues its Correlated Colour Temperature (CCT). This is usually measured in Kelvin. Lamps with a lower CCT–in the region of 2400K–emit more orange light, while lamps with a higher CCT–6000K and higher–emit more blue light. Depending on your venue and events it typically hosts, most sports lighting is between 4200K and 5000K–a bright white light.

Sports Lighting Colour Rendering Index

The Colour Rendering Index (CRI) of lamps and lights indicates how accurate the colours of objects appear when lit. Naturally, this can be of critical importance in certain sporting activities, where you should look for a CRI rating of at least 75. Not all areas of your sporting venue would require accurate light rendering but seek professional advice before opting for a lower CRI.

Weather Resistance of the Sports Lights

Many sports lights are set up outdoors and endlessly exposed to direct sunlight, humidity, rain, dust, and more. When replacing or installing a full lighting enclosure, you want to ensure that it has a high level of weather resistance. This is represented as an Ingress Protection (IP) code, shown as IP followed by two digits. The first digit indicates protection against solids–such as dust–and the second shows level of protection against liquids.

For most outdoor lights, IP65 is the ideal rating you would want. The “6” indicates that the light is dust-tight, while the “5” shows that the enclosure is water resistant from any direction.

I purchased an EV charger from these guys last week. The whole experience has been great! Ross, who I think is the owner/manager was super helpful with product knowledge and tips before and after buying the unit. Highly recommended.

We visited their office after viewing video of Plusrite car charger. Ross explained how the charger works and showed us the one fitted at his office that he uses for his E car. We needed it for our Renault E tech. Ross was able to recommend an electrician to install and it works beautifully. Ross is happy to spend time with you and his experience with E cars means he has the answers to the questions you will have. Great product, fair price and really good service.

Bought the Plusrite Single Phase charger. Fast shipping. Relatively easy installation ( but no install manual). Z Box app. Works well. Response to owner- Yes 3 books . 2 for DLB and 1 for Z-Box. Factory must have missed the installation guide but no issue as easy to work out install. Thanks

Amazing service. After ordering from Michael I expected the lights to take a week to get to Brisbane (like many items I buy from interstate suppliers), but no, these turned up the next business day. Well done.

Purchased the AU08-DL30W/W/S downlights with romote in October 2020 but only installed 3 weeks ago. They are great lights & the remote & setup are very easy to use. I Installed the new downlights as the existing downlights had power sockets in the ceiling space which meant that I could unplug my old ones & simply plug in the new ones. That was easy apart from having to enlarge the plaster hole size & make good. The amount of overall light & spread is great & the dimming works really well. I intend to buy more of these soon
