1. Gypsophila layout: the arrangement of the lights above the court and the beam perpendicular to the plane of the court.

3. Mixed layout: a combination of top layout and two-sided layout.

How is MECREE Tennis lights over its competitors?
There are many high power led flood lights suppliers in the market. But not every light can be used as tennis court floodlights. Mecree adopt calculus optic technology to achieve 98% light transmission, and produce low glare, no flicker, uniform light. And the lens we used is made of high toughness, UV protected, reliable PC materials. Compared with glass lens, ours is more safe. And each sport light led chips on the modules are independent. One lamp can have more than one beam angle mixed to meet some special requirements.
Many led stadium lights suppliers talks about their high lumen stadium lights. The high lumen output is meaningless if the spilling light cannot be well controlled. And the player’s vision will be impaired and the neighbor will be affected also. We called it as “light pollution”. The secondary asymmetrical optical design we used is Dark Sky Friendly. It can control the spilling light very well and make up the dark shadows in between the poles.
The power of the single LED chips of the high power led flood light is high, so it cause much heat when it work. It is about 70% – 90% luminous energy, 10% – 30% heat energy. So if the heat dissipation effect is bad, it will shorten the lifespan of the light directly, and the color temperature will also be affected. Our led flood light adopted 4D cooling system, the perfect air convection design and big heat dissipation area ensured the long lifespan and stable performance of the light.
