We provide proper hockey field lighting. The hockey field is about 91 x 55 meters in size, and to illuminate that area, we usually use high power outdoor floodlights with 800 to 4,000 watts of power. In addition to sufficient brightness, the best hockey field lighting systems should be anti-glare and non-flicker to improve the vision of players and spectators. Let’s take a look at lighting up hockey fields or clubs with LED floodlights, and the fun you can have after changing metal halides, HPS, and mercury vapor lamps.
For sports fields hockey pitches, a good quality stadium lighting not only can bring a good game on HD live, but also have comfortable environment for players and audience.
Sometimes we use up to 5,000 to 20,000 watts of lights on the hockey field. Improper optical devices will lead to severe light pollution in the surrounding area. It affects not only the quality of life of the people living nearby, but also the wildlife around them. Our patented design reduces light leakage by more than 96% by concentrating light into a designated area.
The visible strobe makes the eyes of players and spectators tense.It also affects video recording.The flicker problem is especially serious if you use fluorescent lamps, metal halides, or other gas discharge lighting devices.To provide better lighting for the hockey rink, we developed flicker-free LED lights that support high-speed cameras up to 5,000 to 6,000 Hz to capture fast-moving hockey puck and hockey sticks.
Due to the limitations of lamp posts and lighting fixtures, there are usually bright and dark spots in reality. Lighting uniformity on a hockey field can directly affect a player’s performance, so it’s very important.
Lighting uniformity is measured from 0 to 1 (maximum). It is the ratio between the minimum illumination and the average illumination or between the minimum illumination and the maximum illumination on the ground.The lighting uniformity required for professional competitions is about 0.7.We offer high quality lighting solutions with lighting uniformity of 0.7 to 0.8.
If you are wondering whether to use LED lights or replace your existing HID lights. Let’s explore the advantages of using LED lights.
One of the biggest incentives is that we can enjoy more durable lighting by switching to LED hockey field lamps. Leds last 10 times longer than halogen bulbs. We can save the cost of buying a new lamp and the installation cost of each replacement.
In addition, LED has better durability because it has a better IP rating.
Led hockey field lamps use less energy to provide the same lumen brightness.Did you know that different types of lighting have their own luminescence (energy efficiency)? LED lights typically have 130 to 140 lumens per watt, compared with 10 to 15 lumens per watt for halogen bulbs and 75 to 90 lumens per watt for metal halides.
The investment is worth it because it offers many long-term benefits, although the initial cost is slightly higher than conventional lighting.
Because we have our own r&d team and factory, we can customize LED floodlights according to different needs. For example, after obtaining ground illumination and uniformity requirements, light pole height, light poles number and other important information from customers, we will provide custom lighting solutions (with different structural designs, power, beam angles, lenses, drivers, etc.) that best suit your situation.
Some electrical contractors may overlook the lamp’s service life. On the market, a lot of lamps on the market falls after using 2 to 3 years, can see distinction apparently. And the damage rate of lamps is as high as 20 percent a year, frequent replacement also means high maintenance costs. Why should we choose hockey field LED floodlights with longer life? Because it avoids expensive replacement costs, including the cost of buying new lights and re-installing them.
Mecree LED stadium lights lifespan is more than 80,000 hours, meaning if you turn on 8 hours a day, it is equivalent to 28 years you don’t need to worry about the cost of buying a new lamp and re-installing it. If we compare the service life of different types of traditional lighting equipment (fluorescent lamp for 10000 hours, HPS and LPS for 20000 hours, MH for 8000 hours, etc.), we can find that LED lights have the best performance.
Anti-glare light is an important feature of badminton court lighting. Sports competitions, especially professional sports competitions, have strict requirements on lighting glare control. 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.
To avoid light pollution in the design of the stadium lighting requirements are very strict, the control of minor leakage will have a lot of bad impact.
Spill light not only causes waste of light and electricity, but also pollutes the environment and affects the quality of life of nearby residents.
Different from other suppliers, Our LED stadium light adopts precise secondary optical system, light through multiple reflections to the effective position, then the light are guided to the designated area so that reduce the light loss, not only in this way, our lens of glass material, is not afraid to be the impact, and not easy to broken, with zero light decay, make the effective utilization of light up to 98%, make full use of the light.
The general color temperature requirement for all levels of the hockey pitch is greater than 5000K. Despite such advice, we usually use 5700K of cold white light to provide better lighting for players and viewers as these colors are more exciting. About the color index, The higher the index, the more realistic the color of the object. As usual, Our lights are Ra 80+, and Ra 90 + customizable.
It is important to have a stable lighting for a hockey field. As we know, fluorescent lamps and MH lamps are prone to flicker under the camera, because their brightness fluctuates significantly at low frequencies. Because of the uneven brightness, this greatly affects the user experience.
Mecree LED stadium lights, flicker-free design, are compatible with 4k high-speed cameras and slow-motion cameras.
Some customers may require that the led stadium lights on the court have a higher lighting uniformity. It is reasonable to make this request, and the best lighting system should be as uniform as possible to avoid unwanted dim areas. Because uneven field brightness will affect the line of sight, which will affect the performance of the player and the audience experience. To solve this problem, our hockey field lamps with the “three core technologies” of high power LED lighting, can provide uniform lighting throughout the court. During the sports competition, the audience will never miss any exciting moment.
In addition to purchasing hockey field lamps, you can also enjoy our free DIALux service. As we know, each field will have different lighting requirements, such as number of light poles, poles height, lux level requirements, anti-glare, no flicker or other special lighting requirements for outdoor or indoor hockey pitch. We can meet your needs, because we can provide customized LED hockey pitch lighting arrangement design for you without any extra cost. Just need you to offer the field detail information.
Choosing us, choosing hockey field lamps with high efficiency and perfect lighting effect, MECREE is better professional and guaranteed. If you have more questions or needs, please send an email to [email protected]. We will reply you within 24 hours.
