Players Receive Enhanced Lighting
Statistics show that one-third of professional football and baseball teams from the major leagues of (MLB, NFL, NBA, and NHL) have replaced their halogen and HID lights with new state of the art LED lighting because of the many advantages the LED settings provide for teams and fans. Players find growth in technology that allows them to play a better game, always a reason to celebrate. Surely LED lighting allows many things worthy of celebration: light that shines brighter and has better light distribution, turns on instantly and is dimmable, works well in cold and hot temperature environments, emits no UV and emits almost no heat, has great color rendering index (CRI), it is smaller and safer (no more broken glass bulb and no toxic and hazardous materials to be released), lasts longer, less expensive to maintain, and is energy efficient. Companies like SPEC Corporation offer solutions to compatible installations of Sports LED lighting. Most LED systems are guaranteed to last for 250K hours or the equivalent of 25 years. Your maintenance costs for LED lighting will significantly reduce the time spent replacing or fixing the light. Also, the amount of illumination that spills over the settings needed to be directed on the field is significantly reduced. It will not disturb the surrounding neighborhood because of the level of control over the directional emissions and dimming of lights.
Fans enjoy Entertaining Light Shows
One reason why a light show is more significant with LED lighting in a stadium has to do with what is called the Color Rendering Index (CRI), which has greater precision in rendering the color of the object that the lighting is revealing under the LED lamp.
Operations Have Unmatched Control
LEDs are more costly upfront to install. The LED lighting will ultimately recoup costs over the years, and after the fees are recouped, many more years will pass before LED light will need to be replaced. LEDs do not need time to warm up like traditional halogen and HID lighting but turn on instantaneously when switched on.
Near-elimination of Maintenance
Since LED supporting lights do not need to be replaced, the only maintenance issues are installation. LED lighting lasts several times longer than traditional lighting. The LED lighting will not emit in the UV spectrum and is safer for artwork in this spectrum. It takes low level of voltage to operate LED and should make it less likely to drain resources for sports events. Any sports event manager often needs to think of the time of year when the game is being transmitted since regular halogen and HID lighting is sensitive to temperature fluctuations. LED lighting can function equally as well in cold or hot temperatures. Lastly, an LED light is available in Color Coded Temperature (CCT), which is manufactured with a “warm” or “cool” glow and another colored lighting.
Further Advantages of LED Sporting Lights
LED lighting does not need special handling at the end of their lifespan, like making sure mercury in the lamp is taken care of and does not spill. LED lights are solid-state and do not require any metal for light coloring when they are turned on.
