How to provide the best lighting for night climbing gym?

Bouldering can be an exciting but dangerous sport if you don’t have proper lighting in climbing walls and other indoor facilities. Climbers need bright lights to locate the handle. LED light is the best lighting for bouldering because its excellent lumen output, uniformity and energy efficiency. LED lights can replace traditional HID high ceiling lamps directly, improving lighting performance.

1.Bright lighting in the center of indoor climbing wall

What is the lighting requirement of indoor climbing wall? In general, the lux level should be 200 to 300 lux in training and 800 to 1,000 lux in national/international competitions. If your climbing facilities are designed for recreational and professional use, you may choose to provide a higher lux level lighting system, due to the brightness of our lighting system is adjustable. We can adjust the light for bouldering classes and use maximum brightness in climbing competitions. Our lighting is suitable for community climbing clubs and top competitions such as IFSC world championships and bouldering international series. Our lighting designer will help you find the right solution for your application.

2.High lighting uniformity in the training center

No shadow and anti-glare lighting are important for climbing. By using LED lights with different beam angles and power, we can achieve smooth and uniform lighting in the gym. Your clients (mountaineers) will love it and enjoy using these facilities. Our engineers are always ready to help you set up the best lighting design.
In addition to the climbing wall, we also provide multi-functional lighting products for the lounge, storage room and other parts of the climbing hall. Please contact us for more information.

3.Indoor climbing gym lighting design, providing a better user experience

If the lighting is not properly designed, the surface of the inclined wall will be very dim. In addition to horizontal lighting, our lighting solution also considers the best way to climb a wall. If climbers cannot see the grip, especially for underlining, they will miss the steps, which is very dangerous, which will greatly affect the user experience of your indoor bouldering gym.
A common problem is that because of inverted trapezoids or other irregular shapes, the beam cannot reach the sloping climbing wall. Depending on the layout of your climbing club, our engineers will design the optimal lighting solution to provide adequate lux levels of horizontal floors and vertical walls. For more information, please contact our engineers for lighting advice.

4.Energy-saving and low-heat LED lighting

There are many types of lighting, such as metal halides, halogens, mercury vapor, fluorescent lamps, HPS and LED floodlights. Among these lighting fixtures, LED floodlights are a better choice for indoor bouldering gym lighting replacement. This is because LED floodlights have a higher lighting efficiency of 150 lumen per watt, more than twice that of metal halides or 10 times that of halogen lamps. As a result, by using LED floodlights to transform high-ceiling lighting, you can save about 70 percent of the energy in the climbing wall center, thereby reducing the cost of electricity.
In addition, since LED does not generate too much heat, the ambient temperature of the gym can be kept in a low range, which also reduces the cost of air conditioning. LED floodlights are cool sources of light because they convert 95 percent of their energy into light rather than waste heat.

What is the cost and operation cost of LED bouldering lights?

1.Power (operation) cost of LED bouldering lighting

In fact, 600W metal halide lamps can be replaced with 200 to 300W LED lights. By using LED lights, we can consume less energy, thus helping to protect our earth. For each 1200W illumination, the daily operating cost within the bouldering club = 1200W x 8 hours x $0.12/1200 = $0.96, or $28.8 per month.

2.Maintenance cost

In addition to the power consumption, we also need to consider maintenance, the climbing gym lighting replacement cost. If your current lighting is HID, you will need to replace the lamp every 1 to 2 years, because the brightness will decrease rapidly due to the light fading. The current mainstream LED light decay is (under normal operating temperature) : decays 3% in 3,000 hours, 50,000 hours is 30% off. The service life of our LED floodlight is over 80000 hours, light attenuation less than 5% ( in 5 years) . If you turn on the lights 8 hours a day, you don’t need to buy 27.4 years of new lights.

3.Indoor climbing fitness lamp cost

We provide high cost-effective LED lighting. If you do not know the lighting arrangement, please feel free to contact us for quotation and free lighting design. We are eager to help.
