Football pitch lighting
It is very important that football pitches are lighted uniformly and that the light has a good colour rendering. Furthermore players, spectators and neighbours should not be blinded. For this it is important that both the position of the poles and the number of floodlights are chosen carefully.
To reach a good uniformity of the horizontal lighting level with few floodlights, on training pitches usually 4 to 6 poles with a height of 16m and 6 to 8 floodlights Aerolux type Egalux 2000 are applied. In this way an average horizontal illuminance of 75-100 lux is reached, according to class III (training) of the European standard EN 12193 for sports lighting.
On competition pitches, a high horizontal illuminance is reached by applying 6 to 8 poles of height 16 to 18m and 10 to 16 floodlights Aerolux type Egalux 2000. In this way an average horizontal illuminance of 200-250 lux is reached, according to class II (competition) of the European standard EN 12193 for sports lighting.
By default for football pitches Aerolux applies lamps with a neutral white colour (4.100K).
For all football pitches and each lighting level it is possible to apply LED lighting.
