Top 10 reasons college recreational facilities are upgrading to LED lighting

Lighting for Indoor and Outdoor Facilities Not all recreational facilities for colleges and universities are indoors. Outdoor sports fields and courts are a staple of the college scene. College football, for instance, is one of the most important parts of the college athletics scene, and it requires proper lighting. LED lighting is perfect for both indoor and outdoor use, making it the go-to choice for all types of college recreational facilities. Instant-on Capabilities College recreational facilities aren’t used 24 hours a day, but they do need to be properly lit when someone wants to use them for the safety of students, athletes, and spectators. LED lighting, unlike other types of recreational lighting, doesn’t require a warm-up period. When you switch the light on, the light comes on at its full strength. This allows you to turn lights off when the facility is not in use, without sacrificing the quality of light when it’s needed. Improved Versatility Allows for More Facility Us...

How to minimize energy costs at ports & shipping yards?

High Mast Lighting and LED Are the Perfect Fit In a shipyard, high mast lighting is the right choice. Strategically placed around the shipyard, these lights are far off the ground, but provide a wide beam of illumination on the ground or water below. Because they take up little space near ground level, yet provide a wide arc of light, high mast lights fit the port environment quite well. MECREE LED Luminaires are perfectly suited to serve as high mast lights. These lights cut energy costs by as much as 65 percent and cut maintenance costs through longer lifespans. They are specifically designed to withstand the marine environment with corrosion-resistant materials and a system that dissipates heat to reduce damage to the electrical components. This combination makes these an all-weather light, perfect for outdoor port use.

The Importance of Proper Lighting for Hockey Rinks

LEDs Offer the Best Illuminance First, let’s talk about the kind of lighting best suited for hockey rinks. LED luminaires are the best option for lighting in most, if not all circumstances where lighting is needed. This is especially true for sports lighting since the game depends on how well lit a stadium or rink is. Sports LEDs are tough and build to withstand harsh weather so even in outside areas, the lighting is durable and won’t be negatively impacted by repeated exposure to rain, snow, and other elements. On the other side of the spectrum regarding the elements, sports LEDs are also built to withstand extreme temperatures. Passive cooling technology allows for a longer life expectancy and helps the LEDs stand up to hotter climates. Sports LEDs can typically be controlled wirelessly. This allows for an easier way to turn luminaires on and off. Some may even have the option of controlling just a few of the luminaires or a group of luminaires so you can brighten or dull areas a...

How MECREE LED Lighting Can Impact A Basketball Player’s Performance

Too Much Glare Can Blind Players Basketball is a fast-paced game, and players need to know where the ball, their teammates and their opponents are always. Some types of lights and even light fixtures can create glare that blinds the players in certain areas of the floor, which prohibits performance. Adding parabolic reflectors to lighting or using lighting designed to be glare-free can help reduce this risk by diffusing the light and keeping glare at a minimum.   Click here for more information about GL-SFL Series LED Sports Field Lights. Similarly, lighting that is placed directly in the field of play, such as a fixture hanging directly over the hoop, even with diffusing technology, can create glare that makes play difficult. Instead, aim to put the main light source outside of the main playing area, so the light will spill onto the playing surface without creating too much glare. Proper Illumination Improves Accuracy of Play When a player is shooting the ball, being able to...

MECREE LED Lighting Solutions for Little League Baseball Fields

Understanding Lighting Requirements for Little League Fields Before purchasing lighting for a Little League baseball field, those in charge of field design or maintenance need to understand size requirements. Little League fields have specific dimensions, which ensures that every field has the same play experience. This also dictates how much lighting is needed. In a Little League field, the requirements vary depending on the level of broadcasting required. A higher footcandle level on the infield is due to the fact that most game play takes place in this area. The maximum-to-minimum ratio is figured as the average between the maximum amount of horizontal footcandles and the minimum amount on the same surface. This figure determines if the field has hot spots, shadow, or glare that could reduce visibility for players. A max/min ratio of 2 indicates even lighting without hot spots or shadows. How MECREE LED Luminaires Help MECREE LED Luminaires help achieve these requirements and w...

Soccer Field Lighting Requirements

Before opening a soccer field for nighttime games, you must ensure that it is properly lit. The amount of light you need depends on the type of play, whether or not spectators are watching, and how big the field is. On a standard 180 ft x 330-ft field, without spectators, you will need at least 30 footcandles of horizontal target illumination. If you’re lighting a professional level stadium, you’ll need a minimum of 75 footcandles. Adding spectators or larger field sizes increases the need. Click here for more information about GL-SFL Series LED Sports Field Lights. In addition to having enough lighting, you need to install it in the right place and using the right mounting hardware.
