How to control glare for swimming pool lighting

In the field of sports lighting, there is a venue that is more unique, and its requirements for light are very different from other venues. That’s right, we are talking about swimming pools. Due to the unique optical characteristics of the water, it is more difficult to control the glare of the swimming pool lighting than other types of venues, and it is particularly critical. So, How to control glare with professional swimming pool lights?

Control the reflected glare on the water surface by controlling the projection angle of the swimming pool lighting fixturers.

Generally speaking, the projection angle of the luminaires in the gymnasium should not be greater than 60°, and the projection angle of the luminaires in the swimming pool should not be greater than 55°, preferably not greater than 50°.

Control the reflected glare on the water surface by controlling the projection angle of the lamps.

Glare control measures for diving athletes.

As far as diving is concerned, the scope of the field includes from 2 meters on the diving platform, 5 meters from the springboard to the surface of the water, that is, the entire trajectory space of the diving athlete. In this space, the field lighting is not allowed to have any uncomfortable glare to the athletes.

Strictly control the glare to the camera.

That is, the light from the water surface must not be reflected in the main camera field of view, and the light emitted by the led indoor swimming pool lights must not be directed to the fixed camera. It is more ideal if it does not directly illuminate the 50° fan-shaped area centered on the fixed camera.

Strictly control the glare caused by the mirror image of the lamps in the water.

For swimming diving halls with TV broadcasts, it generally has a relatively large competition space, then the 150W Halo series bay light could be a good solution. The Halo series swimming lamp can control glare well. In addition, Yibai LED Lighting’s professional high bay lights are energy-saving, low-carbon, environmentally friendly, cost-effective, and low maintenance costs. These features just meet the lighting characteristics of swimming pools and are suitable for swimming.
