Frequently Asked Questions
In conversations with customers, we asked what questions they had about LED Squash Court and Racquetball Court Lighting. Here’s the list below. If you couldn’t find the answer, contact us at (888) 423-3191 and we’ll be happy to assist you.
What Type of Lighting Can You Use in a Squash Court?
There 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 install inside the ceiling. Linear high bays mounted near the ceiling, canopies, UFO High Bays, High Bay LED Lights, and others.
What Are the Squash Court Lighting Specifications to Follow?
The 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. But 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.
Will LED Lights Make Playing More Fun?
If you are currently using fluorescent lights, LEDs will be a significant upgrade: no flickering, humming, and better light quality.
How Much Will Switching to LED Lower the Electricity Bill at My Squash Club?
At least 50% or more. If you install motion sensors on the courts, you can dim court lights while they are not in use.
BEFORE YOU BUY
What Lux / Foot Candle Level Should You Target for a Squash Court?
That depends if it’s used for competition or not. Your best bet is to target between 30 to 50-foot candles (300 to 500 Lux) for non-televised games.
What Light Levels Required for a Professional Squash Court?
50-foot candles are reasonable for a professional racquetball court.
Can I Retrofit My Existing 2×4 Fixtures in My Squash Court?
Yes, you can. We offer retrofit solutions (LED tubes and LED magnetic strips) designed to retrofit existing 2X4 fixtures.
What Is the Best Way to Layout Lighting for a Squash Court?
We would be happy to create a lighting plan for you. They’re free. And it takes away all the guesswork and risk if you consider converting to LED lights.
What Material Is the Lens Made Of?
It depends on the fixture, but most of the fixtures are either acrylic lenses or tempered glass lenses.
Balls Can Go Flying Everywhere. Are Your LED Squash Court and Racquetball Court Lighting Impact Resistant?
Some are. So if that is a concern of yours, then we can spec impact resistance fixtures.
Some of My Courts Have White Walls and Some Have Glass Walls. Will You Recommend the Same Product Either Way?
Maybe. The best way to determine this is to create a lighting plan based on your specific needs. We have to assume the glass wall will not reflect the light as well as a highly reflective painted wall. That might change the light we use and the lumens required.
What Light Levels Required for a Recreational Racquetball Court?
30-foot candles are reasonable for a recreational racquetball court.
Do Your 2×4 Fixtures Have Hard Lens Covers?
Yes, they do.
How Can I Reduce Glare from LED Squash Court and Racquetball Court Lighting?
Using frosted lens covers helps a great deal to reduce glare. Indirect lighting also works well.
The Players at My Club Think the New Lighting Is Too Bright. What Can I Do?
First, figure out how many foot candles are in the bright courts. Can you dim the lights? Many of our LED fixtures are dimmable. In fact, we offer color-changing and dimmable 2X2 and 2X4 panels and canopies so you can soften the color temperature.
If you’re looking to replace the lights, let’s do a lighting plan. Let us know your target foot candles.
How Can I Ensure That the Lights Don’t Fall If Hit by a Ball?
\We can supply safety cables as a secondary means of hanging the fixture. So if the light gets knocked off the primary mount, the safety cables will ensure the fixtures don’t fall.
