Surfacelux were approached by Alsager Tennis club in early 2020 to look at their ageing lighting system whereupon we identified the higher running costs and underperforming existing lights as two of the main factors to recommend an upgrade. Their current green box lights are among the worst engineered of any floodlights designed for sport ever made, and were highly recommended for replacement. Luckily the existing lighting columns for the twin court block were in positions that could be utilized so these courts only required new bracketry and floodlight luminaires.
We were also asked to look at and cost for a new install to a further two courts within an existing four court block, which was being completely overlaid with a new carpet surface. Our proposed solution was for a Philips LED floodlight system using the existing columns and mounting heights already in place. Philips are market leaders in both on and off court floodlight performance coupled with a manufacturer’s backed warranty. We undertook complete design work and then submission was made to the local authorities, and with no opposition, the materials were sourced and the equipment was installed as per our designs.
All in all this was a fabulous end result for a club with an ever-growing membership and increased demand for illuminated courts in the darker months.
