General Information: LED Squash Court and Racquetball Court Lighting
Best Type of LED Lighting to Use in a Squash CourtThere are several types of lights that you can use in a squash court. It all depends on what your existing courts have. You can use recessed panel lights that are installed inside the ceiling. Linear high bays mounted near the ceiling, canopies, UFO High Bays, High Bay LED Lights, and others.
Squash Court Lighting SpecificationsThe standards we follow are 30-foot candles for non-competition courts. 50-foot candles for competition level. And 120-foot candles for televised competitions.
Is it Better to Use Direct or Indirect Lighting on a Squash Court?This question is more about glare reduction. Indirect lighting will always be the best choice if glare is an issue. However, there are options available for direct lighting that will reduce glare. Fixtures with frosted lenses are better than clear ones and show the LEDs. Also, for indirect lighting, you need more powerful lights.
LED Lights are Better than Fluorescent Lighting for Squash CourtsIf you are currently using fluorescent lights, LEDs will be a significant upgrade: no flickering, humming, and better light quality.
Utility Savings When Converting to LED Lighting in a Squash ClubAt least 50% or more. If you install motion sensors on the courts, you can dim court lights while they are not in use.
