  • BEKA Schréder has supplied the LED floodlighting solution for the new Hockey/Athletics field and Tennis courts at the Curro Durbanville High School in Cape Town.

The new sports field and Tennis courts are a great addition to this independent school. Such high-quality facilities called for a high-quality LED lighting solution. BEKA Schréder’s South-African designed and manufactured floodlights were chosen for their excellent light control, ensuring that only the area that needs to be lit is illuminated, keeping light spill to a minimum.

Hockey/Athletics field

BEKA Schréder’s OMNIBLAST-2-E MAXI floodlights illuminate the Hockey/Athletics field. The OMNIBLAST-E range is the ideal tool for sports venues and other very large area applications that require a lighting solution with the highest efficiency and flexibility to adapt to the different lighting needs. 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.

The LEDLUME-MAXI was the luminaire of choice for the Tennis courts. The LEDLUME range offers optimised photometrical performance with a minimum total cost of ownership. The great variety of high-performance optics optimises the photometric distribution for each specific application to achieve minimum energy consumption.

 Full scope sports lighting solution

BEKA Schréder’s full scope solution starts with an audit and then bringing in their expertise on compliance with standards and essential parameters, such as the safety and comfort of users, light pollution and minimising neighbourhood disturbance.

This is followed by producing a tailor-made LED luminaires and control systems solution. BEKA Schréder is able to offer a complete solution that covers outdoor and indoor playing areas, as well as car parks, change room facilities, fields, pavilions, spectator stands, and any other areas inside or outside of the buildings: a holistic approach is central to everything they do.

BEKA Schréder locally develops and manufactures energy-efficient LED lighting products, designed and suitable for local conditions. We are very proud to be associated with Curro Durbanville High School and KLS Consulting Engineers in providing a successful LED lighting solution for this project.
