The biggest problem with swimming pool lighting is the control of surface light curtain reflections. Swimmers are not disturbed by reflected glare while in the water, but they are detrimental to the diver, and the audience has a greater impact, so the installation of the luminaire should allow the viewer to watch the game under optimal conditions without visual disturbances , While good visibility is also important to swimmers.
Reflected light produced by natural or artificial light on the surface of the water is much brighter than the bottom of the pool, making it impossible for viewers to see the water, and in more serious cases, threatening swimming pool users. Therefore, it is necessary to control the reflected light from the natural light and artificial light on the water surface and to ensure the transmission property well into the water.
Indoor swimming pool lighting usually consider maintenance lighting fixtures, generally not arranged above the water lamps, but above the surface of the water with a dedicated access road except. For venues that do not have the requirement of televioning, the lamps and lanterns are often distributed under the suspended ceiling above the surface of the water, under the roof truss or on the wall. For venues with the requirements of television broadcasting, the lamps are generally arranged in a light band arrangement, that is, Longitudinal horse Road, at both ends of the pool shore arranged transverse horse Road. In addition, you also need to set the right amount of lamps under the platform and springboard to eliminate the shadow formed by the platform and the springboard, and to focus on the warm-up pool for diving.
To emphasize, diving should not be arranged above the diving pool lamps. Otherwise, a mirror image of the lamp will appear in the water, causing light interference to the athlete and affecting the athlete’s judgment and play.
