Natatorium lighting design uses specialized lighting design software to create a lighting plan for indoor natatoriums. It calculates the total number of fixtures you’ll need. It shows you where to install the fixtures. And it will provide light levels on the floor or desk level and light balance.

Light balance is just as crucial as natatorium lighting requirements. Creating a lighting solution that’s bright and balanced is the difference between noticing how good the light is and how bad it is.

We offer free lighting designs for our commercial lighting and industrial lighting clients, electricians, electrical contractors, and ESCOs.

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

Professional Level: Pool: 75 foot candles (fc), Deck: 50 foot candles (fc)
College Level: Pool: 50 fc, Deck: 20 fc
Recreation Level: Pool 30 fc, Deck: 10 fc

Start with deciding how much light or foot candles you need, and then have us create a 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.

Just as important as lumens, picking the appropriate optic package to ensure a good beam spread.

On the low end, 10 lumens per square foot would be for recreational level pool decks. On the upper end, 75 lumens per square foot would be a good target for professional level pools.

Not all high bay fixtures are suitable for natatoriums. Look for fixtures with tempered glass lenses and cast aluminum bodies. These will help the fixture stand up to high humidity and chlorine.

The ideal lumens for an indoor pool depend on the required light levels you need. This is a measurement of foot candle levels. Our lighting plans can help you to decide where the fixtures should be installed, the type of fixture and foot candle distribution.

We recommend installing frosted lenses to hide the ‘star’ appearance of LEDs that show with a clear lens.
