LED Lights for Indoor and Outdoor Rinks

We have great LED indoor hockey lights and outdoor hockey lights. We can easily replace your existing lighting or add LED Lights for a new ice rink.

LED Lights Work Well in Cold Indoor and Outdoor Hockey Rinks

Yes, LEDs love the cold weather. We have many high-power solutions installed in Alaska that run all winter long. So lighting up an outdoor ice rink with LEDs is not going to be an issue.

Best LED Lighting for an Outdoor Ice Rink

The best lighting can differ from rink to rink. It depends on your lighting requirements and the position of the poles. What works well for one rink may not be the best option for another. Creating a lighting plan is part of the process when it comes to finding the best light for your rink project.

Ideal Color Temperature for Hockey Rink Lighting

Use 4000K or 5000K lights, and that seems to be the color temperature our customers request. 5000K is a good choice if you have metal halide lighting. There are a lot more 5000K options available and 5000K will provide great light.

Choose either UFO High Bay or Linear Fixture for an Indoor Hockey Rink

There are a few pros and cons with each choice. UFO lights are more robust and can handle puck hits. UFO lights are a good choice if you have high mounting heights. Optics can narrow down the beam to make sure the ice is lit and not the stands.

Linear fixtures are a good option if you like the appearance of fluorescent lights. They also have a better light distribution. All things considered, we would lean towards UFO lights over linear lights.

How to Plan for the Foot Candles You Need for an Indoor Ice Rink

For indoor rinks, the best option is to use high bays mounted from the ceiling. Use anti-glare frosted or optic lenses, depending on the mounting height. For outdoor rinks, the best option is high-power pole-mounted flood lights.

The best fixture for your needs will depend a lot on the facility. Start by creating a lighting plan to determine the best option.

As an example, an indoor rink using 72 160 Watt UFO fixtures mounted 20 feet above the ice produces 86-foot candles. With an average/min ratio of 1.67 (this is very balanced lighting).

LED Lights for Hockey Rinks Voltage Options from 100V to 480V

The voltage ranges we offer are 100-277V, 347-480V, and 277-480V.

Types of Bracket to Use for Light Mounts to a 4×4 Pole

We would suggest you use a trunnion/yoke mount. They accept bolts/lag bolts that you can use to secure the lights to a post. If you are installing many fixtures per pole, you can buy a bullhorn mount. They can support 2 to 4 fixtures and mount the fixtures with a slip fitter mount.

Height to Mount Backyard Rink Lights

Higher is better, but for small outdoor backyard rinks, 8-10 feet should work fine. The lower the installation height, the greater the chance light glare will affect the players on the ice.

Best LED Lighting to Use for an Outdoor Ice Rink

Pole-mounted flood lights with a wide beam angle work well for these environments. They provide great coverage over the sheet of ice.

Lighting Requirements for an Ice Hockey Rink

Lighting requirements vary depending on the level of play. We have provided lighting plans for recreational hockey leagues with 20-foot candle. And college-level ice rinks at 80 fc to 100 fc across the ice surface.

Using Wire Guards to Limit Puck Damage

That depends on the fixture used. We have high-impact rated fixtures designed to survive a puck hit, so a wire guard is not required. If you decide to use a non-impact-rated fixture, then using a wire guard is recommended.

LED Lights for Hockey Rinks and Lighting Controls

We can install photocells on outdoor fixtures and motion sensors on indoor fixtures.

Dimming LED Lights for Hockey Rinks

LED Lights can dim, but make sure the fixture you have has either a 0-10V or 1-10V LED driver.
