Indoor cricket is a much faster game than regular outdoor cricket, due to the characteristics of high speed and excitement, the requirements for indoor cricket lighting are higher.
Indoor cricket lighting covers two specific and different elements of the indoor cricket court and the indoor practice net. Is there any difference in lighting standards between the two?
Indoor cricket court
Indoor cricket court is designed to appeal in particular to a large number of mixed-gender participants with a variety of abilities. It is a fast sport designed to maximize the participation of all athletes.
Indoor cricket practice nets lighting standard version recommended
Class I – 750 lux; Minimum to average uniformity = 0.7
Class II – 500 lux; Minimum to average uniformity = 0.7
Class III — 300 lux; Minimum to average uniformity = 0.7
The (minimum) average maintenance level of 500 Lux recommended for clubs;Minimum to average uniformity = 0.8. It is recommended that indoor cricket pitches used for matches meet at least class II requirements (500 lux) which are consistent with the illumination requirements for the multi-purpose indoor stadium code.
Indoor cricket practice net lighting
The key distinguishing factor between indoor cricket practice net lighting and indoor cricket ground is the use of standard hard cricket.As a result, lighting requirements will be higher to improve the safety of the ball as a small, fast-moving hard projectile for batters and bowlers.
Lighting standard version of indoor cricket practice net recommended
Class I — 1500 lux; Minimum to average homogeneity = 0.8
Class II – 1000 lux; Minimum to average homogeneity = 0.8
Class III – 750 lux; Minimum to average homogeneity = 0.8
Among them, category III is equivalent to the lower level club/local club, category II is equivalent to the middle level competition area/club level, and category I is equivalent to the top level competition international/national level.
What should we pay more attention for indoor cricket lighting?
Consider considering the lighting of each indoor cricket ground or practice net separately so that the lighting compliance of a field is not dependent on the operation of any adjacent net or field.
Light-coloured walls are recommended for indoor cricket.A reflectivity of 0.7 is obtained on walls and ceilings coated with white paint.
Glare control of lamps
To reduce glare for participants and viewers, placing them away from the normal line of sight will help reduce the likelihood of glare. Choose a lamp that performs well in glare control to ensure player comfort.
Heat dissipation performance of lamps
Heat is the problem with ceiling lights. Heat can build up during lamp work. If the temperature is too high, the electronic components in the floodlight will be damaged. So when choosing light fixtures that suits indoor cricket court lighting, we should pay attention to heat dissipation performance especially.
Maximum use should be made of the shadows of roof lights and Windows to maximize the use of daylight to avoid glare from the sky under sunlight or from the penetration of beam sunlight, especially at low solar angles.
Multifunctional motor ability
Consider whether the site is intended to meet the needs of other sports USES to maximize utility and consider any restrictions on the lighting location and/or design associated with other sports USES.
Control, operation and maintenance
Lighting equipment should be simple control, flexible operation.Simple zoning prevents the use of unused courts or courses.When daylight is sufficient or space is not used, the controller can be used to turn off or darken the area to reduce energy and operating costs. Consider maintaining the lighting on the cricket net. Lamps with long service life and energy saving should be selected to help reduce the need for frequent maintenance and minimize the energy and maintenance burden.
What’s the most suitable choice of indoor cricket lights?
Mecree launched a new type of energy-saving and efficient lighting lamp GL-SFL series LED stadium lights in 2017. Designed for the north American and European markets, it replaces traditional lamps (PHILIPS: MVF024, MVH-401/403/406 Arena Vision, MVF408-CAT1-1800W, NHF003; THORN: Mundial), saving more than 80%. GL-SFL series is very popular in the auxiliary lighting of large indoor venues and is ideal for indoor cricket lighting. Standard power is 100w-1200w, high power can be customized.
Glare can not only make athletes or spectators uncomfortable, affect performance, or even ruin an athlete. Especially for high power LED lights, if there is no special design on it, people may feel dazzled when looking at the lights. We have a patented anti-glare design to achieve the minimum glare value.
Excellent cooling system
Temperature is the biggest enemy of LED lights. Strong and persistent heat can damage LED chips, reducing brightness and service life. To solve this problem, we developed a patented cooling system, air convection design, light and thin cooling fins, the largest cooling area on the market, 40% larger than other lamps, so that our lights have a long life, and ultra-low light decay value, <5% in 5 years.
Long lifespan, No maintenance costs
GL-SFL series lifespan is more than 80,000 hours, meaning if you turn on 8 hours a day, it is equivalent to more than 27 years you don’t need to worry about the cost of buying a new lamp and re-installing or repairing it. When we compare the service life of different types of traditional lighting equipment (fluorescent lamp for 10000 hours, HPS and LPS for 20000 hours, metal halide for 8000 hours, etc.), we can find that it has the best performance.
Our lamp is compatible with DMX, DALI system, 0-10v dimming also can be done. Therefore, we can not only intelligently adjust the brightness of the light, but also use DMX to control each individual light and design different effects according to different requirements.
