Stadium lighting has new options with grow lights

Around 20 years ago we realized that if tomatoes, sweet peppers and chrysanthemums do well when grow light is used, then the same must be true for grass. Today our grow lights are used by more than 100 football stadiums around the world – and for good reason. Together with our partner TLS, we are your stadium light supplier and offer innovative grow light solutions for stadium lighting that keep sports fields in top condition.

Why LED stadium lights work

Everyone who works with sports fields knows that realizing the highest-quality turf isn’t just an odd job that needs to be taken care of; it’s pure science. For example, the roots of the turf are extremely important, and the grass needs to be really thick. On the other hand, you don’t want it to grow too fast, because then it will need to be mowed much more often. That wastes a lot of energy. In addition, to achieve even turf quality across the field, the dark corners need to be lit as well – instead of just using led bulbs to create led ceiling light. This means that the grow lighting must be easy to move and to place on any location across the field.

The color rendering produced by these LED lighting rigs stimulate germination, the development of premature grass blades and pitch regeneration. Proper grass growth conditions are usually hindered by non-conducive venue design.

Hortilux’s grow lights and stadium lights can be moved around the field easily, thanks to the unique lightweight TLS frame that the led lights are attached to.

New possibilities for led stadium lights

At the same time, the development of new grow light technologies – such as LED lighting and hybrid lighting (a combination of LED and HPS) – creates new possibilities for turf lighting. LED lighting brings with it more options for improving the physiology of the grass. In addition to improving the turf, LED bulbs and led stadium lights are 80% more energy-efficient than traditional grow light solutions.

This type of stadium lighting gives your favorite football team a smaller carbon footprint and lower energy bills.

Do you have questions about LED stadium lights?

How much does LED stadium light cost?

The average stadium light pole cost ranges from $50,000 to $500,000, not including installation, the installation cost depends on the city. The professional LED sports lighting has at least 28 years lifespan, no maintenance and replacement cost, let alone the labor costs.

How many lumens do stadium lights produce?

How much light comes from LED Stadium Lights? LED stadium lights start at about 60,000 lumens to replace a 1500 watt metal halide sports lighter and go up to 150,000 lumens on average. lumens is the amount of light from a fixture and differs from the light on the ground, known as footcandles.

Can you grow grass with LED lights?

Different wavelengths have different functions. This can only be utilized when using LED technology. A red color is required for grass seeds to germinate and to increase biomass. Blue light will increase the sward density and enhance root growth.

Do stadiums use LED lights?

Major sporting venues have their lights over 100 feet high. Today, LED stadium lights are widely used because they are dynamic, easily controlled, and, more importantly, energy-efficient.

What LED lights are commercial growers using?

CMH grow lights are becoming popular amongst commercial cultivators and hobby growers because they use up to 30% less energy and provide the same PAR/watt, or PFF performance as traditional MH & HPS Grow Lights while also producing less heat which requires less grow room air conditioning.

What is stadium lighting?

Outdoor sports lighting or stadium lighting is a type of site light fixture that is commonly used to illuminate large areas for sporting events or other large outdoor events and activities, such as concerts. Sports light fixtures are typically mounted on poles 40 to 100 feet tall, with between 1-12 fixtures mounted on each pole.
