Today, Access Fixtures announces the introduction of the new TULA Series of indirect LED tennis court lighting fixtures available in three wattages. Delivering superior performance of 140 lumens per watt, the TULA indirect tennis court luminaires emit between 47,400 and 85,500 lumens to meet the exacting standards of tennis clubs, collegiate tennis facilities, and professional level competition. For new facilities, Access Fixtures offers photometric study services to determine the quantity, wattage, and distribution of the luminaires to meet recommended lighting standards. In existing facilities, the TULA can replace metal halide luminaires on a one-for-one basis, eliminating the cost of new wiring. Photometric studies can be employed to validate that one-for-one replacement.
“The TULA indirect LED tennis court luminaires were engineered specifically for use in indoor tennis facilities and are designed to deliver a high-performance, indirect light source with minimal maintenance and reduced energy use,” said Access Fixtures CEO Steven Rothschild. “With these LED indirect tennis luminaires we can now provide cost-effective LED lighting solutions for all levels of tennis: recreational, club level, or competition.”
In a multi-tennis-court facility, fourteen TULA fixtures per court achieved an average of 105 footcandles, a uniformity ratio of 3 for the entire eight-court facility, and an average of 1.6 uniformity in the primary playing areas. TULA indirect LED tennis court luminaires are rated LM70 at 100,000 hours of use and reduce energy use by 50% to 70% as compared with 1,000w metal halide lighting. Standard color rendering of 70 CRI is improved as compared to metal halide. Higher CRI is optional. 3000K, 4000K, or 5700K LEDs are available. Dimming is also available.
