Everything to Consider When Buying Outdoor Stadium Lights

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Stadium lights bring outdoor events to life.

Imagine the Super Bowl or World Series without lights?

Sports aren’t the only events that require outdoor stadium lights. Music concerts, dance events, and night parades all need high-quality lights to shine.

If you’re a stadium manager or event planner, you may be tasked with buying outdoor lights. You must stay within your stadium light budget too.

Are you ready to take your event to the next level? 

Illuminate your outdoor entertainment with these easy tips for buying stadium lights!

Which Outdoor Stadium Lights Do You Need?

Not all stadium lights are built alike.

Some lights are more appropriate for certain events than others. For example, you wouldn’t install football stadium lights on a tennis court. Certain events require a different level of brightness than other events, as well.

Consider the following points when choosing your lights:

  • Beam angle
  • Lighting design
  • Heat dissipation
  • Lighting quality
  • Waterproofing
  • Light glare rating
  • Evenly spread lighting
  • Brightness Level
  • Efficiency and reliability
  • Lighting supply

Stadium lites also start at 60,000-lumen minimum and increase from there.

Let’s take a closer look at the above variables to help you find the right lights for your event.

Beam Angles, Light Spread, and Brightness Levels

The beam angle determines how light is dispersed throughout the stadium. This point is crucial for football and baseball games.

If your lights’ beam angle is narrow, expect lower uniformity. Wide beam angles increase light regularity on the field. The right beam angles are essential for lighting balance.

Beam angles matter for light spread, as well. Sports referees can’t observe details without even light spread.

Brightness levels also vary among events.

For example, a golf course requires a minimum of 80 lux brightness. Cricket matches require up to 750 lux. Professional sporting events need higher brightness levels than recreational games.

Waterproofing and Heat Dissipation

Have you ever been to a football or baseball game in the rain? What happens to the lights?

It’s not just rain you have to worry about either. Humidity can also cause lighting damage.

Waterproofing is fundamental to quality stadium lights. Thankfully, outdoor lighting comes with waterproofing ratings.

Overheating is another concern.

Ventilation is a hallmark of a high-quality LED lighting system. Vents cool down your lights when they get too hot. Aluminum lights also overheat less than other lighting materials.

Efficiency, Reliability, and Quality

Efficiency is crucial for lighting longevity and energy use.

Lighting for sports stadiums isn’t cheap. Fortunately, LED stadium lights last longer than traditional lighting. So you’ll definitely see the difference in your energy bill!

Reliability is another point.

Even one light flicker can affect a game. Too much glare can impact players’ performance too. Look for an excellent glare rating before purchasing.

A high-quality stadium lighting system takes all these data points into account. Create a checklist to find the ideal lights for your event.

Illuminate Your Outdoor Event!

Do you have the right outdoor stadium lights for your needs?
