Frequently Asked Questions
We asked our customers questions about LED Lighting for Sports Domes, Sports Facility Lighting, and Field House Lighting. Scroll below to find answers to our most common questions. Or call (888) 423-3191 to speak with a dedicated lighting expert and let us help you with your sports hall lighting needs.
What are LED Lights for Sports Domes and Field Houses?
The best option for Sports Hall LED Lighting is UFO LED Lights. These are lightweight, powerful fixtures designed to provide a lot of light in a small compact framework. If you are used to metal halide lighting, there are UFO-style high bays listed on this page that can easily replace 400 Watts up to 2000 Watts of Metal Halide. These lights operate at savings up to 75% of their metal halide competition. They also have high IK Impact ratings, so the occasional strike from an object will not damage them.
What Voltages Do You Offer For Sports Dome Lighting And Field Houses?
We offer two common options. The standard option is 100-277V, and the second option is 277-480V. By far, most sports domes are in the 100-277V range.
Can You Redesign An Existing Sports Complex Lighting Layout?
Yes, we can redesign your sports dome lighting layout. We can use your existing lighting locations – or – suggest new light locations. We have so many options available. So it is not hard for us to achieve almost any foot candle requirement while ensuring the light is balanced on the floor.
Why Is Quality So Important For indoor field house lighting?
In field hoses, no one wants to play in subpar lighting. Since most sports domes are commercial operations, having a bright area is going to bring customers back. This means that providing a well-lit experience is good for business.
How Much Can I Expect to Save When I Switch My Sports Complex Lighting to LED?
LEDs can provide 50%-75% savings over traditional HID sources of lights. You can even take this up a notch by adding motion sensors. When the dome is unoccupied, the lights can dim down to only 10% and dramatically increase your savings. And LEDs are instant-on, instant-off, so turning them off does not require 30 minutes to bring them back on.
BEFORE YOU BUY
How Many Lights (Foot Candles) Do You Need for a Field House?
This depends entirely on the purpose and use of the sports dome. At a minimum, 30-foot candles. For broadcast, and television quality lighting, 100+ foot candles are required. Generally speaking, 50-foot candles will provide a great experience inside a dome.
What Color Temperature Is Best Inside a Sports Dome or Field House?
We recommend either 5000K or 4000K color temperatures. 5000K is the most used option that is a great replacement for metal halide. 4000K is a slightly softer, warmer light source.
What Mounting Options are Available for LED Sports Hall Lighting used in a Field House / Sports Dome?
Our UFO LED Lights can be mounted using eye hooks and pendant mounts. Eye hooks allow you to fix and mount the fixture to a structure or use cable/wire to allow the lights to hang.
What’s the Best LED Field House Lighting for Sports Domes?
The best lighting for sports domes is the one that meets your requirements and specifications. And beyond foot candles and even distribution, make sure you consider impact resistance. We can offer IK10 impact-resistant lights that can take a hit from an object and still operate.
Always start with creating a lighting plan first. The lighting plan will find the best light for your indoor sports hall lighting needs.
How can I reduce shadows on the sports dome/field house floor?
Reducing shadows is a function of light balance. Balance is just as important as brightness. It’s hard to avoid. No one wants to play in the shadows. By creating a lighting plan, you can ensure that light levels are met and balance is even across the entire surface – before you buy.
Do You Offer High Voltage LED Lights for Field Houses / Sports Domes?
We do, all the way to 480V. The typical ranges are 100V-277V and 277-480V. The drivers automatically detect incoming voltage and switch internally. As long as you select the proper range, you will be fine.
How Do You Hang LED Lighting in a Sports Dome?
There is no difference between the installation method of our LED lights and the lights you are replacing. We offer the same mounts. And wiring them to your power supply is simple for any qualified electrician.
How Can I Reduce the Glare from Lighting?
We recommend using a frosted lens. Some of our high-efficiency UFO high bays include ribbed lenses which is specifically designed to reduce glare.
