BEKA Schréder - OMNIblast-E Midi

  • BEKA Schréder has supplied the LED floodlighting solution for the Hartleyvale Stadium in Cape Town, Western Cape.
  • This stadium is the home of Hockey in the Western Cape and is where all international Hockey games are played in the province. 

Hartleyvale Stadium is a field hockey stadium run by the City of Cape Town and has two astroturf sports fields and seating for 1 700 spectators in the hockey section. A new LED floodlighting solution was required to replace the old HID floodlight installation. BEKA Schréder’s OMNIBLAST-2-E MAXI was chosen for its local content and because it achieved the required light levels and provides a very high uniformity.

The South-African designed and manufactured OMNIBLAST-E is available in a MIDI and MAXI variant. This LED solution offers an alternative with proven benefits for traditional fixtures fitted with 250W to 2000W HID lamps. The OMNIBLAST-E meets various lighting applications, ranging from general area lighting to recreational sports lighting up to professional broadcasting requirements, matching the horizontal and vertical lighting levels respectively. A modular concept of optical units means that 1, 2 or 3 modules can be mounted on a similar bracket arrangement to offer the utmost versatility, providing light distributions and lumen packages perfectly adapted to the specifications of the area to be lit.​​​​​​​

Further advantages of the OMNIBLAST-E include:

  • Cost-effective and efficient solution to maximise energy and maintenance savings
  • Housing is manufactured from Marine grade, high-pressure die-cast aluminium
  • Designed for easy technology upgrade
  • Meets international sport federation lighting regulations
  • Inclination angle adjustable on-site
  • Surge protection 10kV/10kA

BEKA Schréder develops and manufactures energy-efficient LED lighting products in South Africa, designed and suitable for local conditions.

We are very proud to be associated with Hartleyvale Stadium, the City of Cape Town and CDE Electrical in providing a successful LED floodlighting solution for this project.

Green Building Africa promotes the need for net carbon zero buildings and cities in Africa. We are fiercely independent and encourage outlying thinkers to contribute to the #netcarbonzero movement. Climate change is upon us and now is the time to react in a more diverse and broader approach to sustainability in the built environment. We challenge architects, property developers, urban planners, renewable energy professionals and green building specialists. We also challenge the funding houses and regulators and the role they play in facilitating investment into green projects. Lastly, we explore and investigate new technology and real-time data to speed up the journey in realising a net carbon zero environment for our children.
