How to ensure you have a well-lit Basketball Court before purchasing LED

Why is it important to get photometrics?

Photometrics enable people to check their area. Plus, how their area would appear under LEDs without taking any risk of purchasing. Plus, you can simply run our different lighting options and offer you the right guidance and information. Here, we will save you a great deal of money with innovative LED solutions. However, it is important to have the right lighting.

Indoor LED Basketball Court Photometric Example

Why select The Lighting Center Basketball LED Lights?

Luminous Efficacy (Lumens Per Watt)

Luminous efficacy refers to the right measure of the efficiency of a bulb. This denotes the lumens created for each watt of consumed electricity. LED lights are more efficient as compared to conventional lamps with a high luminous efficacy. Premium-quality LEDs have incredible efficacy ratings. The average luminous efficacy goes over 130 lumens every watt.

We have outdoor and indoor basketball court fixtures, which are rated between 130 lumens/watt and 180 lumens/watt. So, we are here to help you select the perfect efficiency.

* Why to tradeoff between theoriginal cost and long-term savings?

Higher efficiency LEDs cost more than low-efficiency products. The savings over the product’s life is usually more than the original investment required for upgrading. So, in case, you are in search of maximizing savings when transforming to LEDs, go with the high efficiency LED product.


Indoor-Outdoor Basketball Court LED Lights

So, we have outdoor as well as indoor lights, which are designed especially for a basketball court. Our High Bays LEDs feature special lenses for reducing glare. Our LED outdoor Flood Lights feature special optics for throwing the illumination forward onto a court. Thus, they provide uniform and bright light across the complete court. Check out our examples of outdoor and indoor court photometrics with these lighting fixtures.

100V - 277V
277V - 480V

High Voltage around 480V

If you are looking for an option to replace your higher voltage fixtures like 277V-480V, our lighting solutions cover such high voltage installations. We offer constant current drivers that are well-equipped for handing 3-phase or single-phase power too. Contact our sales engineers and they will take care of your lighting condition.

* 480V High Voltage Options

Our higher voltage solutions handle both single phase and 3 phase 480V installations. If you have voltage above 277V, tell our sales engineers so we can specify the proper driver.

Lighting Controls

Lighting controls like motion sensors can reduce lighting charges dramatically by dimming or switching off the lights when there are no people around that area.

One can add Microwave and PIR motion sensors for switching on the lights when they detect some motion and for dimming or turning the lights off when they detect no activity. For dimming, the basketball court fixtures require a 0V-10V dimmable driver. Dimming LED lighting fixtures do not affect the bay fixture’s life and relatively simple, unlike conventional lighting.

Also, if you want to save extra money, then nothing could save more than 10% or off lit.


Rough Impact Resistance Lighting Fixtures

IK rating refers to an international code. This rating measures the protection level of lighting fixtures against mechanical usage and the impact it could handle. It is even a measure of the robustness and durability of a lighting fixture.

Using a lighting fixture in high traffic areas, such as gyms, it is significant to have lighting fixtures with the right IK rating. That’s because if a lighting fixture gets damaged, its efficiency might decrease. Thus, it is best to go with impact-resistant lighting fixtures. In the first place, you should analyze the possibility of impact before deciding if you require a lighting fixture with higher IK ratings.

The Lighting Center can provide you with basketball court lighting fixtures with a high impact rating.

70 CRI
80 CRI
90 CRI

Color Rendering Index: Light Quality

The color rendering index designates the light’s color. This index tells how well a lighting source is going to reveal the items’ colors in comparison to sunlight, i.e. the perfect lighting source. When talking about HID bulbs, people generally complain about bad light color. So, light color is significant in a high bay application. It highly impacts the contrast and clarity.

Many of our Basketball Court LED fixtures are given between CRI 70 and CRI 85. Plus, we can receive special orders of any CRI that you may require.


It is best to go with anything that goes over 70. In applications like assembly work, you should choose between 80-90 CRI as fine details are necessary there.


Beam Angles: Perfect Light Distribution

So, what do people require for illuminating an outdoor or indoor court? If no idea, then it is absolutely fine as we have covered here everything you need to know.

A basketball court is relatively easy to brighten up properly if you get the right lighting fixtures. We would like to ensure you have some idea about the foot candles you need in your basketball court. Foot candles could range between 50 to 100 based on your venue.

* Beam Angle Selection

For determining the right beam angle and perfect light for your indoor area, contact us to get a lighting photometric done. Check out both the max/min ratios and foot candle measurements for making sure your area is uniform and bright.


Color Temperature Options

For a basketball court, it is quite significant to employ lighting solutions with the correct color temperature. Color temperatures around 5000K are closer to daylight. Also, they have similar energizing effects to natural light. So, if you are still using fluorescents, HPS, or metal halide, it is time for you to replace these lights with LEDs.

* LED Color Choice

For replacing Metal Halide, it is best to go with 5000K. If you like warm light, then you can select 4000K. High Pressure Sodium high bays fall around 2300K. So, it is great to improve the light quality indoors by moving to 4000K-5000K. The same thing applies even to brightening up outdoor courts.

Outdoor Basketball Court LED Lighting

For an outdoor basketball court, lighting can range from illumination on the parking garage, to bleachers, to the real court. The same rules of lighting apply to every place. Plus, common problems that you face with common outdoor lighting options like HPS, Metal Halide, or more can be resolved with LEDs.

It is possible to resolve light pollution with innovative basketball court LED lights due to their direction design. These lights allow more light directed onto the place where you want it with less light loss. Plus, quality basketball court outdoor LED lights can even withstand all the elements and last longer, no matter if it is hot or cold outside.

Besides the outdoor basketball court lighting for the basketball game area, these lights are even significant to be considered in a parking lot. As dark parking lots could be a potential danger, there should be proper illumination there as well. Since parking garages require lots of energy consumption, it’s a great opportunity for saving money in maintenance and power consumption by opting for LEDs.

Indoor Basketball Court LED Lighting

Indoor basketball court facilities are common to NCAA, big colleges, pro teams, and many more. These are some places where visitors and fans come. So, you need the right lighting there too. This is possible with our different LED lighting solutions.

We provide you with the ideal lighting levels for all environments, including an indoor basketball court lighting situation. From the hallways to the court and stands, we make sure that your court gets the right lighting levels for the most favorable indoor basketball court LED lighting design.
