Sports LED Lighting Solutions

In sports stadiums and indoor sports centres, the number one aim is to have high clarity, bright and flicker free light. Efficient LED’s with high colour rendering indexes provide spectators, players and officials with superior visibility while at the same time reducing associated electricity costs.

Sports stadiums are focused on providing the best experiences for the players and the spectators at their facilities, and the quality of the lighting used to create the ambience plays a fundamental role. OptiTech products are specific premium lighting that get used for sports centres ensuring that the establishment is looking it’s best and electricity costs are reduced.


Broken or shattered lights at indoor stadiums is not something that anyone wants. A stray cricket ball can cause serious damage to existing high bay lights and result in glass showering the playing surface. The OptiTech high bays that The Green Guys use are shatterproof meaning that if a stray ball should find it’s way to our light it will not cause any damage and play can continue.

Lighting in the workplace environment has a large and significant impact on staff productivity. Although it may not be obvious at first glance, the type and strength of the lighting in a workplace greatly affects the physiological aspect of employees. There is a strong relationship between daylight exposure in the workplace and a person’s sleep, activity and quality of life. Windows are the most important determinant of the occupants’ level of satisfaction with a building according to a study conducted in Britain and published in “The Responsible Workplace” (Jensen, 2015). In other words, natural light is very important to not only how well one can see, but also to one’s mood, behavior, and hormonal balance. Natural light can lead to increased happiness in workers, less absenteeism, and fewer illnesses from satisfaction and increased productivity among workers.
A company can spend tens of thousands of dollars renovating their office space in order to maximise on natural light exposure, but the cost, and daunting nature of this undertaking, in most cases is too great. One solution is to change the existing workplace lights with those that are closer to natural sunlight ; LED lights with high CRI. OptiTech products, which have a CRI of over 85, help bring your workplaces closer to the quality of natural sunlight.

How can LED Lighting help sports arenas and leisure centres?

  • LED lighting creates a well lit and safe environment for all.
  • Greatly reduces staff eye fatigue.

Things to look out for when upgrading to LED Lighting

There are a few factors that combine to create greater lighting results for offices. Here’s some extra information behind retail success.

Brightness Levels

The other main consideration is brightness levels.

Upgrading to LED lighting will result in an increase to LUX levels, which is ideal. All of our installations adhere to AS1680:2008 which stipulates  the required LUX levels for different space types and their uses.

Older mercury vapour and metal halide lights have very short lifespans when compared to LED lights and they have a substantial brightness degradation over time. Some of these older lights can lose 40% of their original brightness after only 4 years. Our LED lights only lose 10% of their original brightness over 50,000 hours!

Colour Rating Index (CRI)

The CRI is a measure of how close the light source is, in quality, to actual daylight. The higher the CRI, the higher quality of the light.

CRI is not a measure of brightness or colour but how well colours appear in that light.

Studies have shown that something as simple as LED lights with a high CRI in produce refrigerators result in higher sales, because the fruit looks riper, plumper and juicier to the eye, as opposed to that in refrigerators with normal fluorescents.

ROI - Payback

One of the benefits of LED lighting is the fact that the longer your operational hours are, the faster the lights pay themselves back.

With the average payback period for an LED lighting project in a supermarket averaging less than 12 months it’s no surprise that the uptake of LED lighting over other energy efficiency products has been so rapid.

Saving on Maintenance Costs

Maintenance of lighting is another associated cost, which increases relative to the size of the space. This may come in several forms, but a universal one is the replacement of old, blown lights. OptiTech’s LED lights have a lifespan of up to 90,000 hours which translates to over 10 years (if running them 50-80 hours per week). Compared to traditional fluorescent tube lights which are rated at an average of 10,000 – 15,000 hours, this increased lifespan means significantly less maintenance.
