What is Natatorium Lighting?

Natatorium Lights are designed for use in indoor swimming pool facilities. They have special coatings that make them capable of operating in the swimming pool environment. These commercial indoor pool lights are designed to last for a very long time without maintenance.

The most common color temperature options used in natatoriums are either 4000K or 5000K. 5000K is a good replacement for metal halide fixtures. We offer both color options for our Natatorium Rated Commercial Swimming Pool Lights. We also offer color temperature adjustable lighting so you can change the color temperature after you install them.

All the fixtures we have listed here are all IP65-rated or above. The IP rating is a test of how waterproof and dust-proof a fixture is.

If glare is a concern, frosted lens covers are a good tactic to reduce glare. This is something we do a lot on sports courts and gymnasium installations as well.

What Does Natatorium Rated Mean?

There is no ‘rating’ per se, but there are lights rated to work within the natatorium environment. Natatorium lighting fixtures are always exposed to high humidity, water, and chlorine. So the fixture’s rating should withstand this type of environment.

Using tempered glass lenses on our LED high bays, and using the epoxy finish/powder coat will protect the fixture from corrosion. The body of the LED UFO lights is cast aluminum which performs very well in this type of environment. Additionally, any fixture used should be IP65 or higher.

Does Chlorine Degrade Your Natatorium LED Light Fixtures?

Chlorine should not degrade our Natatorium Light Fixtures. Our UFO high bays are cast aluminum with an industrial-grade powder coat. When using them, use a tempered glass lens. This should keep them safe from the effects of chlorine.

Guidelines for Natatorium Lighting Foot Candles

This depends on the level of competition. Here are some guidelines that you can use to determine how much you need.

  • Professional: Pool: 75-foot candles (FC), Deck: 50-foot candles (FC)
  • College: Pool: 50 FC, Deck: 20 FC
  • Recreation: Pool 30 FC, Deck: 10 FC

What are the Best LED Lumens for an Indoor Swimming Pool?

LED Lumens per square foot is just another way of saying footcandles. So the best way to start is to determine how many foot candles you need, and then have us create a natatorium lighting plan. The lighting plan will show you the ideal light locations. It will also show the type of fixtures used, and foot candles across the surface of the pool and deck. Remember, picking the optic package to ensure a good beam spread is also important and a lighting plan will also show you the best optic to use.

Should I Use New LED Fixtures or Can I Retrofit?

Many natatoriums use ‘up-lighting’ that shines light against a reflective ceiling. This is a great way to reduce, if not cut, glare. These fixtures are also expensive. Retrofitting is a great option. It allows you to convert to LED and keep the investment in your existing up-lighting. The existing fixture must be in reusable condition if retrofitting. Otherwise, replacing is the way to go.

Do You Have LED Up-light Natatorium Rated Fixtures?

We sell retrofit kits to retrofit up-light fixtures. We do offer flood lights and other fixtures that can aim upwards like an up-light.

Can Any High Bay Light Fixtures Be Used in a Commercial Pool Building?

Not all. There are specific high bay fixtures on our site that we would recommend over others. Our UFO fixtures with tempered glass lenses have been used in a commercial natatorium since 2016. To date, there have been no issues or failures that we’re aware of.

How to Install LED Lighting in Natatoriums

It's as simple as installing any other type of LED Light we offer. Any qualified electrician will be able to install our fixtures easily.
