What is unique about football field lighting? Light belt layout provides new ideas for rugby lighting?

Rugby field lighting strip layout

The light strip arrangement is another form of arrangement on both sides, that is, the lamps are arranged in rows on both sides of the court to form a continuous light strip illumination system. The lighting of the belt is uniform, and the brightness between the athlete and the stadium is relatively good. At present, the lighting method in the world can meet the requirements of color television broadcasting, high-definition television broadcasting and even ultra-high-definition television broadcasting.

The length of the belt is generally not less than 180m for the Class A and the Grand Football Stadium. The projection angle of the luminaire should not be less than 25°. Some rugby field light strips are close to the sideline of the site (the angle is above 65°), and the side of the site closer to the light strip cannot get enough vertical illumination, so the rear lighting system is added.

Rugby field lighting standard

The rugby field lighting has increased the area where the lamps cannot be arranged, which is intended to protect athletes and referees from the effects of glare. When there is a TV broadcast, the space within 15° angles on both sides of the bottom line; when there is no TV broadcast, the space within 10° angles on both sides of the bottom line.

In general, the optical belt arrangement uses a combination of several different beam angles for projection, a narrow beam for long shots and a medium beam for near projection. The disadvantage of the optical belt arrangement is that the technique for controlling glare is relatively strict, and the physical feeling of the object is slightly poor.

Rugby field lighting options

The choice of lamps is also crucial for rugby competition. A few years ago, the rugby field lights were generally metal halide lamps, but in the process of use, the problems continued, causing considerable trouble for the rugby field! Frequent quality problems such as glare, spillover, and lamp heating have seriously affected the professional football game.

After that, the stadium has upgraded the rugby field lights and replaced the metal halide lamps with more advanced LED sports lights. In the field of rugby lighting, ONOR has a unique position. It is understood that ONOR is China’s first sports lighting company to provide foreign and international large-scale sports events. Before that, they appeared as the lighting supplier of U20 Women’s World Cup in the World Cup!

ONOR lighting is a new generation of green lighting system, which will minimize the light pollution of the surrounding environment, effectively prevent spillage and glare, minimize the light shining outside the venue, protect the beautiful night sky, and provide athletes and spectators. The rugby field lighting creates a more comfortable competitive and ornamental environment.
