Green Arc Energy Advisors completed the installation of LED light fixtures at Pickle N Par in Melville, New York. The facility was engineered to deliver a unique lumen package, specific to the industry standards for sanctioned pickleball play. The 150-watt LED sports high bay fixtures provided by Green Arc utilise proprietary Fresnel lenses have been put up that deliver the required light without any glare.
According to an official, the new light is amazing, evenly distributed and consistent in colour. The contrast in colours is much very obvious on court and in photography. All the lights are without any glare and you can look right at the fixtures.
Green Arc’s proprietary optic technology polarises the light output in a way that creates even distribution, most effectively using the linear nature of LED-source lighting. The fixtures were added to complex’s roof framework at approximately 18’ off the court surface, utilizing the existing electrical distribution system, which was done without any structural changes.
Green Arc previously transformed similar facilities to its MLED LED lighting solutions, including several Harlem Promise Academies in New York, which deployed the same 150-watt LED light fixtures in several areas within its gymnasiums.
By replacing the Promise Academy’s existing 400-watt metal halide light fixtures with 150-watt LED fixtures, the facility increased its maximum on-court tennis light levels from below 40-foot candles to over 90-foot candles. Moreover, by making the conversion, the Promise Academy was able to virtually eliminate the hassles of regular maintenance.
There are many advantages attached to the LED lighting, which are the benefits that extend well beyond the initial usage reductions. In addition to the direct wattage, the new fixtures eliminate almost 1,500 BTUs per hour per lamp in passive heat gain compared to 400-watt metal halide lamps, which must be removed by the facilities’ HVAC systems. Furthermore, the new fixtures carry a 7-year warranty and have a 100,000+ hour useful lifespan.
