The importance of glare value in sporting events

In a baseball game, the baseball player has half-hundredth of a second to react and hit the small ball. The vision and brightness must be optimal to ensure a good reaction to lead the team to a walk-off home run! Therefore a high colour rendering without glare is essential. The layout of the lighting should be thought upstream to avoid annoyance due to shaded areas on the field. Last but not the least, it’s important that the fixture is water resistant and robust. Due to the outside conditions, these lights must have IP65 or IP66 certification.

Therefore, considering all the details in the game, the sports lighting of AIKO has reached a high standard in terms of glare and spill control. If you need help with sports field lighting simulation, please feel free to contact AIKO Lighting.
