Volleyball Court Lighting

Volleyball Court Lighting

We deliver high quality volleyball court lighting that meet the lighting requirement of recreational or professional tournament such as NCAA and Olympic Game. Proper lighting is the important accessory for indoor and outdoor fields. To optimize the use of the venues at night, the LED volleyball lights are needed. We need to make sure that the lights are bright and uniform enough. Let’s take a look at how to light up the volleyball court.

Lighting Design of Volleyball Court

1.Lux (Brightness) Requirement

LED volleyball court flood lights

The dimension of the field is 30 feet * 60 feet. If you wish to know the height of net, it is 7 ft 11 5/8 in (for men). As for the lux requirement, it varies with the nature of matches. For the recreational or low-level competition, the lighting requirement of volleyball field is 75 lux to 200 lux. If it is for professional and top-level matches, the value raises to 500 lux.

2.Lighting Uniformity Requirement

Apart from brightness, we need to look at the lighting uniformity as well. The volleyball LED lights for professional competition is 0.7, and 0.5 for recreational use. We deliver lighting solutions having 0.75 uniformity, which satisfy the needs of almost all matches. Please free to contact our engineers to get the free lighting opinion and design. To further enhance the uniformity, we can adopt the indirect lighting plan which point the ceiling flood lights upward and then use the reflected beam to light up the volleyball court

3.Photometric Lighting Design

volleyball-court-dialux-photometric-lighting-designWe adopt DIALux and other relevant software to generate the photometric plan for the volleyball court lighting projects. The idea is that we simulate the environment and lighting effect on the sports ground before real installation. In other words, it is like a proposal of a lighting project.

Our lighting engineers arrange the luminaires and output the false color rendering, isoline and other graphs to predict the ground brightness and uniformity.

4.Flicker-free LED Lighting

On top of that, we have high-end optics that is flicker-free for high speed photography. In according to our laboratory tests, they support up to 6000 Hz filming, which assists capture the fast-moving volleyball and vigorous smashing of the row players.

5.Waterproof Lighting for Outdoor Volleyball Court

heatproof-and-waterproof-led-lighting-for-volleyball-courtOur sports floodlights are waterproof. They can withstand the adverse weather conditions such as rainstorm, which is an essential feature if they are mounted to the high mast poles near the volleyball court.

The premium version LED lights tolerate 100°C boiling water, thanks to the 4th Gen Solid-stage Packaging™ Technology.

6.Heatproof Lights for Indoor Application

It is normal for the luminaires to generate heat. However, persist heat will damage the chips and thus causing decline in brightness and life span. We develop dense fins structure to help reduce the junction temperature of the flood lights, therefore they can keep cool even they are mounted to indoor ceiling. Contact us for more support.

Volleyball Court Pole Lighting Arrangement

After handling the brightness requirement, lighting uniformity and flickering problems, we need to focus on the poles in your sports field. There are different arrangements of poles such as 4 poles, 8 poles, and etc. And they are of different heights. If the poles are tall and number is less, you will need higher power LED lights on each fixture. However, high power LED volleyball court lamps mean heavier. Since there are certain weight safety factor, we need to ensure that the total weight of luminaires do not exceed the limit. Otherwise, it will be very dangerous.

Our product adopts top-of-the-line aluminum alloy. This material is strong, durable and light. Sometimes we may need to install 10 to 20 sets of luminaries on the pole. If you select too heavy products, you will need to do the reinforcement on the poles. The cost will be very high, it can be as high as the volleyball court lighting fixtures themselves.
