Two big reasons why; First with the high lumens required by sport lighting and thus high wattage, the energy savings of LED conversion will be huge. Second, the quality of the lights is vastly improved. Cleaner, brighter lights with less glare make it easier on the eyes and more fun to play at night. Before equipping your court with a LED Light fixture, you need to consider a few things upfront. How bright do you need? Are you changing poles? Adding poles?
Do you need dimming or other zone controls?
Buying Sport Court Lights can costs tens of thousands, but our Sport Court Alternatives save you money.
Whether it is tennis court lighting, basketball court lighting or any other outdoor playground, LED Light Expert is here to help you figure it all out.
Why Are They Better Than Metal Halide?
LEDs enjoy several benefits over metal halide lights. For instance, a metal halide is made up of the gas mixture within the bulb. The more heat it gets, the brighter it shines, but there is a caveat. This mixture is vulnerable and can be exploded. Also, metal halide consumes more watts, has a short lifespan and is expensive to operate. Compare this to LED which may be costly to buy but will give you excellent lighting.
When buying LEDs, always talk about lumens instead of wattage as LED sports lighting is calculated through lumens instead of watts. For instance, a 28w Led will give you 2600 lumen which is equal to a 200 watt light bulb. Check out our LED Learning center for more.
LEDs converts energy into light much more efficiently and has a better area coverage per lumen compared to metal halide. It is safer to operate and has a very long life. While a metal halide will give you roughly 5-6 years or 10000 hours, a quality LED will last upwards of 25+ years or 50000 hours or more. Some LED lights may even last for 100,000 hours or more.
That totally depends on upon the area that you want to cover. For instance, a home tennis court might do well with 6 fixtures at 18 feet high of 30,000 Lumens each. A rec center basketball court might be much brighter with 8 fixtures at 20 feet high and about 45,000 lumens each. Going up higher will require more lumens, but usually creates a more natural feel.
Our big recommendation is to use more fixtures with lower lumens. Trying to light a court with 1 or 2 fixtures will result in shadows and bright sports. Even it out as much as you can by increasing the number of poles and light fixtures Not always an option if it’s a backyard court, but something to think about.
What Are the Best Kinds of LED Fixtures?
There are lots of large LED Shoebox lights that work great for sport lights. The Stadium series and PRO II series are highly rated for sports. The big things we are looking for is glare reduction, high light quality and wide angles. All of our LED court sports lights have strong glare diffusers and use premium LED chips. This ensures a better overall experience. You can use LED Flood lights as well, just a different type of mounting. Flood light mount with a u bracket which may or may not work in your setup. Check and make sure they have a strong glare filter and the right light pattern.
What Is the Best Height?
It depends on how high you can install the light. For Sports Court® Alternatives such as Tennis, its 22.8ft with a T3 lens. See our tech help for what type III lighting is. That same number works well for basketball and pickleball. Larger field sports such as soccer, football and baseball can go up to 30-70ft. Make sure your LED points to the spot that you want it to cover or hangs over it. Keeping the poles away from the court and tilting the light down at a 45 degree angle is usually ideal.
Higher lighting can result in a better overall experience, but at higher levels you need to make sure it makes to the ground. If up to 70 foot for example, you will want our LED stadium light series that uses a 15-30 degree beam angle to project that light to the ground. A photometric study can help, reach out to our experts.
Unlike your traditional lights that are calculated through Watts, the LEDs are calculated through lumens. A lumen is a unit that is used to derive the light required to cover a particular area, which is not the case with watts that are calculated through the power needed to light an incandescent bulb. For instance, each incandescent bulb giving you 150 watts will be equal to 2600 lumens which are roughly equivalent to a 28w LED Light Bulbs. Similarly, you’ll get 1600 lumens out of 100w incandescent bulb or 16-20w LED.
