Is your sporting venue needing attention to its cricket field lighting?

It is important to have good quality cricket field lighting so that players can follow the movement of the ball when it is travelling at high speeds.

When it comes to cricket ground lighting design it is important that not only the bowler but the batsman are not in direct view of the light source. When considering a new or upgrade to cricket field flood lighting it is important to balance the grounds main purpose for lighting against the initial expense, ongoing energy efficiency and ongoing maintenance programs/costs and the implications for the management and supervision of the facility.

Using LED spotlights for such big stadiums is important because they provide complete coverage of the field without dark spots (zebra effect avoided). In addition, LED spotlights are energy-saving and more durable than all the rest of the light sources. Currently, LED spotlights are bright enough to be used for lighting purposes at major sporting venues for cricket. Our company gives 5 years product warranty on all the lights.
