Gerard Lighting illuminates 30 netball courts at Perth’s Kingsway Sporting Complex

Gerard Lighting illuminates 30 netball courts at Perth’s Kingsway Sporting Complex
July 17, 2018

Undertaken to encourage more people to engage in sport, the recent redevelopment of facilities at the Kingsway Sporting Complex at Madeley in northern metropolitan Perth has delivered the latest solution in performance lighting.

With a steady increase of netball teams in the past few years and the need for maximisation of court usage, Gerard Lighting was tasked to illuminate 30 netball courts with the latest LED technology, part of a 43,000 metre² area.

Gerard Lighting has previously contributed to other sporting areas at the Kingsway Sporting Complex including five football, two rugby and one AFL field and a few training zones.

Faced with the challenge of illuminating the Kingsway Netball Courts to sufficiently provide light without interfering with the adjacent sporting fields, Gerard Lighting were also required to meet the requirements of AS2560 2.4 – 1986 recreation and training level, which meant an average of 100 LUX at 0.5 uniformity ratio.

The Sylvania Briteline LED Raptor was chosen for the project, as the level of control of the luminaire was a head above the competitors who pitched for the job.

Gerard Lighting Western Australia Regional General Manager Dino Panebianco explains “two luminaires were specified and we had the Sylvania Briteline LED Raptor approved, as we knew this would hands down get the best results through the product’s control capabilities, while also meeting the Netball AS2560.2.4 training and competition standards requirements.

“The Sylvania Briteline LED Raptor’s optical reflector system delivers exceptional performance and precision. The floodlight distributes light exactly where it’s needed, providing better control, lower glare and less spill light, to increase efficiency and reduce impact on neighbouring courts or residents.”

Adding that the Gerard Lighting team is capable of aiming luminaires, Panebianco stated “we are on-site and in the cherry picker during the aiming process to make sure it’s done correctly, working with the contractors to provide real-time solutions to any issues that arise.

“We survey our aiming points rather than manually marking or relying on the contractor to get orientation and the tilt angle aiming correct.”

This unique mounting system design of the Sylvania Briteline LED Raptor allows for over and under slinging on the pole cross arm allowing the installer to correctly aim the floodlight to avoid obstructions and maximise light delivery.

The Gerard Lighting team also assisted the contractor with LUX testing, which led to providing accurate data to the councils and consultants involved.

Panebianco concluded “if we receive a poor result we jump straight back in to fix it rather than distance ourselves from issues – even if the issues have nothing to do with us.”

The Sylvania Briteline Raptor LED Floodlight not only reduces energy and maintenance costs but also provide the capability of turning the LED lights on and off when needed without any cooling down or warming up period, this will support the increasing use of the community fields.
