ACT Tennis Centre Lighting Upgrade

“Gone are the days of guessing where the ball is!”

BACKGROUND

The Tennis Centre has 8 tennis courts, 4 synthetic grass tennis courts and 4 plexi cushion hard courts, six of which are flood-lit. Their newly renovated clubhouse is equipped with social facilities, wifi, an action Pro Shop and a huge viewing deck. The Tennis Centre have a thriving membership-base and regularly stage social and formal competitions throughout the year.

PROJECT

The Tennis Centre’s primary objective is to make tennis accessible and enjoyable for all. Recognising that their old mercury vapour lighting (1200 watts per light) were not fit for purpose and not compliant with competition-level Australian LED lighting standards, the Tennis Centre worked hard to raise the appropriate funds for the much needed lighting upgrade to all flood-lit tennis courts.

OUR SOLUTION

Gone are the days of guessing where the ball is thanks to the supply and installation of 22 new sports lights provided by Emerald Planet in partnership with a valued installation company. The Tennis Centre have substantially enhanced players and spectator experience, maximising the opportunity for members to take part and enjoy the game.

The new Ocular Sports Lights (600 watts per light) increased the lux levels from <160 lux to >320 lux per light and will also deliver substantial energy-savings for the Tennis Centre, with an approximated 60% annual saving across lighting electricity usage bills.

The Ocular Sports Lighting Series, provided by Emerald Planet, is designed to increase the lux level by 100% and ensure light uniformity, visual comfort, glare control, limitation of obtrusive light and ongoing low maintenance. The Ocular series is lightweight enough to be mounted to existing infrastructure, and includes a range of fixture accessories to ensure the lighting is correctly installed to any current mounting posts.

Delivering energy savings for a premier property management group

“Achieving a dramatic 70-percent energy-saving” 

 

BACKGROUND 

A premier property development company with a history spanning over 150 years in Australia, offering end-to-end property management solutions across a diverse range of developments.

PROJECT 

The property development company knew it was time for a change when their existing light fixtures, T8 fluorescent tubes, were starting to fail and associated maintenance costs were increasing year on year. Dated fluorescent tubes are notoriously inefficient, and often start to flicker as they age. 

OUR SOLUTION

In collaboration with our specialist delivery partner, Green Energy Victoria, Emerald Planet provided a range of lighting upgrades including the replacement of old T8 fluorescent office fittings and new 24W Ambassador low-glare LED panels, achieving a dramatic 70 percent energy-saving for the property management group. The specialised micro-prism diffuser on our Ambassador panels ensures comfort with a low-glare light that is ideal for office environments without compromising light uniformity.
