How to manage spill light around sports fields

The urbanisation of society has led to more housing being built in close proximity to outdoor sports facilities. Due to this, spill light regulations become more important and more demanding, while the lighting quality on the sports fields itself, must be the same or even better. Manufacturers face the challenge to combine requirements that (can) often contradict.

Recently AAA-LUX introduced RS technology.

It keeps the light within the targeted zone, while maintaining an optimum uniformity. At the same time it limits spill light of the surrounding area to an absolute minimum.

During early 2019, the RS technology was tested at several locations in Europe, one being the Marco van Basten Sports Park in Utrecht, The Netherlands. Here (photo above) you can clearly see how the light is cut off just outside the field.

The test at the Marco van Basten Sports Park was completed with a 125 lux field and 200 lux (Class II) field. AAA-LUX’s unique design with 8 LED modules, keeps weight and windage extremely low whilst enabling a high uniformity. RS Technology builds further on these basics and protects the surrounded area from obtrusive light. In addition, the upward light (ULR) is down to zero, helping dark sky, flora and fauna.
