PROJECT SHOWCASE

SLS - SportsLiter Solutions & Shaw Park Tennis Facility

The Project - SLS - SportsLiter Solutions & Shaw Park Tennis Facility

Client – Sportt – Sport Company of T&T
Project Manager – Sheldon Weekes - SPORTT
Lighting Designer – Heather Johnson – Hubbell Lighting

As many of you know Tennis is a major sport in Tobago. The THA wanted to have a World Class facility for its citizens and to boost its Sports Tourism Product. The Project Managers, the Sport Company of Trinidad & Tobago, SPORTT, wanted a single source that could Design, Supply and Install World Class lighting to the facility. However, the major challenge with this project was the lead time as it had to be fully operational in a 8 weeks.

 

To achieve this World Class Facility, PACE classification 4, (PACE classification 5 is Australian and US Open standard) we had to deliver an average of 100 foot candles over both courts in each enclosure. The client also requested the ability to illuminate 1 court per enclosure and not to significantly compromise the light level. An average of 90 foot candles was achieved with 2 x 40’ poles each with 6 x SLS 1500w fixtures. The following is a picture of this.

 

The SLS Sports Lighting fixtures illuminate all levels of sporting events from professional to youth sports, delivering the right amount of foot-candles to the playing area without glare to the participants and the spectators while reducing the growing concern with light trespass. In the following picture note the distance from the roadway is only 10’ from the enclosure and there is no spill light.

 

Best-in-class optics engineering combines with a complete, integrated range of poles, cross-arms, ballasts, and fixtures, all working together to deliver a great high-value system.

Specifiers Quick Tip

As you know these systems consume large amounts of energy when all luminaries are in use. More often than not lower light levels on the will playing surface will be adequate for practise sessions and nontelevised events. Sportsliter Hybrid incorporates switch dimming, which gives you control of dimming levels – and can translate up to 60% in energy saving.

Another great addition to any public or private sporting facility is the ability to collect revenue for the use of the facility. Monarch Coin & Security Inc systems can be installed on lighting systems like this one. The system works on the same premise a token operated Washing Machine.
