Pulsar sports lighting for Sutton Sports Village

Pulsar sports lighting for Sutton Sports Village

Pulsar products have improved tennis and badminton court light levels and reduced annual running costs at The Sports Village in Sutton.

Sports such as tennis and badminton require carefully designed lighting to deliver high illuminance levels required for standard and competitive play. Important factors include: minimising glare and shadow while also ensuring the court is as evenly lit as possible.

The courts at Sutton Tennis were previously fitted with fluorescent tube totalling around 6480W per court of power consumed. Continuous play meant the Club was consuming over 262,080kWh annually. With a total of 9 courts, this amounted to an annual electricity bill of £31,449 just for lighting the courts.

Pulsar were approached by the The Sports Village Sutton about their EcoRange lighting solutions, particularly the UniBay130.

The UniBay130 fixture by Pulsar was designed in collaboration with England sports bodies and players.

After visiting the site and preparing extensive light calculations, Pulsar created a scheme with the UniBay130 that reduced the running cost of each court and provided an increase to the original light levels.

The final scheme included 16 x UniBay130W fittings (per court) with 42 degree optics, which reduced the total consumption to 64,396kWh and the total club energy bill to just £7,727.

In addition to paying less in electric bills, light level readings were taken averaging 400 lux, perfect for daily practice and club matches.

The UniBay is the only LED light designed specifically for tennis players to produce continuous, flicker-free light by using a Constant Current Driver to power the LED’s.

All of Pulsar’s LED lights (both EcoRange and Chroma Range) are Flicker Free and use only constant current drivers.
