What is a Basketball Court Lighting Layout?
A Basketball Court Light Design is a way to view a proposed lighting solution for an indoor or outdoor basketball court.
Using photometric / lighting plan software, you can model a basketball court accurately (length, width, height). The lighting plan software can also import existing layouts and CAD designs.
Lighting engineers can input fixtures at specific locations, angles, orientation and height. They can use existing light locations or provide new light positions to provide the best lumens and light distribution.
The software calculates light levels and provides a comprehensive visual layout report. The report displays calculation points representing the foot candle reading at that location.
What does a Basketball Court Light Design Do?
It removes the risk of buying LED and ending up with bad results. When we do light design for our customers, we run multiple scenarios with different fixtures to get the light levels right.
And its not just foot candles we’re looking at, we also watching to make sure the distribution levels are even across the entire basketball court. The last thing you want is a spotty surface with uneven light distribution.
Outdoor courts can be challenging. Poles are mounted on the outside of the court, but light levels need to be even across the entire court. Using special optics designed specifically for this purpose, we can create even light levels across the entire outdoor basketball court.
When you receive a LED Lighting Supply photometric plan, there is a lot of information to review. To get the most out of the plan, its essential you understand the information.
