MECREE Basketball Court Lighting Project

Traditional stadiums usually use 400W halogen or sodium lamps, although cheap, but not durable, and very power-intensive, life is not long, but also to maintain. With the development of LED lamps, many courses now use LED lamps, a 150W LED lamps can completely replace 400W halogen lamps, more than half of the energy saving. LED lamps and lanterns not only save energy, but also life up to 50000 hours, no stroboscopic when working, that is, on and on, greatly improving the enjoyment of playing.
The basketball court is a rectangular solid plane without obstacles. For the major official matches of the FIBA, the measurement of the court must be measured from the inner edge of the boundary. For all other matches, the appropriate department of the FIBA has the right to approve the existing stadium within the following dimensions: length reduced by 4 meters and width reduced by 2 meters, provided that the changes are proportionate to each other. Ceiling or minimum barrier production height is at least 7 meters. (According to my own experience, outdoor basketball court can be equipped with 6 meters high) court lighting to be uniform, sufficient luminosity. The placement of lighting equipment shall not hinder the vision of the players. All new stadiums should be of the same size as the FIBA’s main official matches: 28 meters long and 15 meters wide.
