Have you ever sat in a stadium watching your favourite team carve out a moment in history that will live long in the memory? Perhaps you were there to see the All Blacks finally overcome the French at Eden Park during the 2011 Rugby World Cup final, or maybe you watched the Black Caps win an epic Test match at the 'Cake Tin' in Wellington. Whatever your experience of stadiums and other sporting arenas, from swimming pools to school gymnasiums, one thing is a constant – quality sports lighting will have illuminated the spectacle.
The sporting spotlight
Managing a sporting venue can be a hugely demanding task. Not only do you have to contend with the day-to-day running of an arena that can potentially accommodate up to tens of thousands of people, but you also have to ensure that the experience is a positive one for everyone involved, for both the spectators and sports teams. One big way to help you achieve this is to make sure that your lighting is of the highest quality, and this is where Aesthetic Lighting Solutions can help.
Sports lighting is used to recreate the same levels of illumination as there is during the height of day.
Our experience and technical know-how when it comes to creating an efficient sports lighting solution is among the most revered in New Zealand. No matter how large or small your arena, Aesthetic Lighting Solutions will be glad to put together a great lighting design for you. Take a look at our previous sports lighting projects to discover how we've successfully illuminated sporting venues in the past.
Give your arena a sporting chance
There are several focused objectives that a lighting system in a stadium must meet if it is to be deemed successful. First and foremost, sports lighting is used to recreate the same levels of illumination as there is during the height of day, without excessive glare that could obscure the view of either the crowd or competing players. This allows play to go on long after the sun has gone down, meaning that tennis or cricket matches (alongside a raft of others) can be completed on the day that they are intended, rather than having to carry over until the next day. In fact, sports events can be held at practically any hour with quality lighting – and that's the beauty of it.
Every sporting arena is different. They are situated in a variety of areas – city centres, out in the countryside, residential streets – and that means that the the lighting design for each will vary from one venue to the next. No one design is ever the same as another, so be sure to get in touch with Aesthetic Lighting Solutions today to find out how we can help.
