Downton Tennis Hall achieves 36% light increase!
PROJECT: Replacing 64x 6ft twin Fluorescent’s
The staff at Downton Leisure Centre not only wanted to change the lighting in the main gym hall, they also wanted to change the lighting in the tennis hall. The tennis hall consists of two courts with 64x Twin 6ft FL surface mounted to an apex roof, each running at 220watts! The roof also consists of large skylights allowing daylight to come through. Due to this Downton only required the minimum light levels according to EN 12193:2007.
Glare was a big factor that we had to take into consideration when installing our LED lighting as it has a huge impact on the playing experience. We installed 32x SportsOPTIMA 5218, using a glare free diffuser as well as suspending the SportsOPTIMA by chains will help to minimise the risk of any glare. Thanks to the effective and efficient SportsOPTIMA Downton had a light increase of 36% compared to the existing lighting.
The Results – Compared to the previous lighting:
ANNUAL CO2 SAVINGS: 2.095 tons
ANNUAL ENERGY SAVINGS: 4702.66 KWh
ANNUAL COST SAVINGS: £6526.09
PAYBACK PERIOD 2.5 YEARS
