Sports facilities require powerful, even and fresh white light. Correctly installed lighting makes people more alert and provides better opportunities for engaging in sport. The requirements for the power of lighting vary depending on what kind of activity is being done in the room: a small and fast ball requires more powerful lighting than a large and slow one. In ball games, players often have to look upwards. Because of this, glare-free ceiling lighting is a basic requirement for sports facilities.
Sport luminaires designed specifically for sports facilities are shockproof, meaning that they will not break when a ball hits them. The light is evenly scattered thanks to bright anodised aluminium reflectors.
The steel-bodied luminaires our extremely suitable surface-mounted in renovated sports halls and gymnasiums. In sports halls, considerable savings can also be achieved through lighting renovation, not only in energy consumption but also in hard cash in the form of long maintenance intervals. Read an example of this from the project Vaajakoski’s sports halls.
Airam supplied 80 Highbay luminaires to a sports hall in Myllypuro to illuminate its 64 x 100 m football pitch. The facility’s lighting efficacy and energy efficiency improved significantly.
In the two rooms of Vaajakoski Sports Hall, the old fluorescent lighting was removed and Airam Sport luminaires designed specifically for sports facilities were installed. The luminaires are shockproof so will not break when hit by a ball.
