How to select Rugby Field Lights


Model No: OED-SP3/SP4/SP5-800W/1000W/1200W/1500W

What is the requirement on the rugby field lighting? the general idea is that the LED high mast light should be bright and uniform enough, which are the lighting standard of Rugby Football Union (RFU). LED is a proper choice of the metal halide replacement for rugby ground lights because of higher energy efficiency, life span, and safety. Let’s find out the ways to light up the football pitch step-by-step.



Size of field

In this case study, we assume the size of full field is 120 * 70 meters, though the actual dimension may vary a little bit. we offer the high mast lights for rugby field, such as 4 poles and 6 poles.

Brightness and uniformity

When it comes to power selection on the rugby stadium lights, we can make a reference to the guideline imposed by RFU, which states that for the recreational and general commercial use, the lux requirement is about 250 to 300 lux. What does it mean? We may have the following estimation.

The total lumen needed = 250 * 120 * 70 = 2,100,000 lumens. For our LED rugby league field lighting, it is equivalent to 15000 Watt. Then, the lighting uniformity is about 0.6, which is a normal value for sports field. How to achieve such the value? Our engineers will make use of lighting design software called DIALux to simulate the illuminance on the ground. By choosing different individual power and beam angle of LED lights, we can get the best rugby field lights having the high performance. Nonetheless, the lux can raise to 500 or more for the professional matches.



Why using LED lights for rugby fields?

LED has exceptionally long-life span of 80,000 hours. In 2018, we improve the LED chips arrangement and heat dissipation system, therefore, the heat accumulation inside the lights is reduced by 30% more than the past design. Heat is a paramount factor for the working time of luminary because poor thermal condition declines its performance.

LED high-mast lights are much durable than metal halide, HID or HPS lamps. For the rugby stadium lights, they may encounter many adverse weathers. Since our sports field lights obtain IP66 waterproof cert, they function normally under the stormy rains. Besides, the solid-state LED is able to light the fields under the extreme low temperature of -40°C. And thus, our luminaires are so versatile that can fit for almost all venues.
