The lighting installation of the Phoenix Gymnastic Academy gym had become outdated over the years: 51 fluorescent strip lights illuminated the 6 metres high sports hall. With a total connected load of almost 4000W energy consumption was very high. Light levels were around 330 lux.
The contractor Lighting Electricians Limited and customer chose to replace the old fittings with 13 LEDVANCE High Bay LED, 200W, IP65 luminaires. The high luminous flux of 23,000 lumen / luminaire resulted in an increase of light levels to over 500 lux. At the same time, energy consumption was reduced significantly: By adding the latest microwave movement controls to the efficient luminaires, programmed to switch off after 12 minutes of inactivity, enabled an overall project saving of up to 50% on lighting energy costs.
We were impressed by the LEDVANCE High Bay LED build quality, excellent light output ratio, and ease of fitting.
The cool daylight colour temperature of 6500K and the increase in brightness of the new lighting are perceived by the staff and gymnasts to have a positive effect on their energy levels and athletic performance. Furthermore, the 5 year guarantee provides the Gymnastics Club confidence in the quality of the new lighting system.
