telescopic floodlights offers flexible sports lighting

Time:2018-05-30 View:

 Our telescopic floodlights for sports fields, courts and pitches provide the perfect solution for sports illumination especially when planning consent for fixed columns has been refused due to visual pollution issues. Many sports facilities have been built in heavily populated residential areas where neighbours often object to unsightly fixed columns as they by their nature are always visible. Telescopic floodlight masts are commonly used to overcome this and planning departments favour them and will often grant permission. Our masts can be automatically retracted to as low as I .8 meters or 1 meter. In some situations customers prefer up to 4-5 meters retracted to keep the lamps away from possible vandalism. We can provide strong steel mast protection base tube covers and anti climb spike clamps and lamps can also be lowered into lamp protection boxes to stop vandalism. The telescopic masts can be centrally controlled remotely from a club house or strong steel lockable control box. Each sports lighting mast can be raised or lowered individually or all masts simultaneously. Internal spiralled cables are available to power the lamps and the entire mast can be rotated either manually or motorised. This can be useful for illuminating alternative areas when required. Pan, tilt and zoom video cameras can also be combined with our flood lighting masts and these can be used for sport analysis or for security purposes.

What else can we do.....

The flood lighting masts we provide for this application do not require any form of guys even with very heavy head loads such as multiple metal halide lamps (usually with ballast at the mast base). We can fabricate fixed or quick release lighting brackets to your requirements. We can also arrange full design and installation at your facility by our own expert operatives to give you the full turnkey solution.

What types of floodlights are available?

Numerous lamp types are available and the metal halide is commonly used and multiple lamps can be placed on each mast and switched to illuminate one area or if the mast is fitted between 2 pitches it can illuminate one or both simultaneously. Lightweight LED lamps have been improving and they use much less electricity. We have suppliers who keep us up to date on the new developments. We can also fit light spread deflectors to prevent unwanted light spillage on neighbouring areas. This again is favoured by planning authorities.
