  Basketball courts include outdoor basketball courts and indoor basketball courts,the differences between this two types basketball courts are obvious,in basketball clubs and international competitions, most of the games are played in basketball arena. Therefore, the lighting design and installation of basketball arena are very different from outdoor basketball courts. The most obvious point is that  basketball arena lighting is generally not used light pole  as a mounting bracket, but directly hangs the fixture directly on the ceiling of the basketball arena. Therefore, we only need to consider the configuration of the lamps when discussing the basic principles of basketball arena lighting.

  Basketball arena are generally used in schools, professional training stadiums, and other places. Because of their closedness and all-weather properties, the importance of their lighting facilities, the basic design and installation of indoor basketball court lighting are as follows:

  The installation method of basketball arena lighting fixtures is vertical suspension installation, which is different from the oblique contrast on both sides of outdoor basketball court lighting fixtures. The basketball arena lighting fixtures are different from outdoor basketball courts in power and quantity, and the power of general indoor court lighting fixtures It is 100-500W, and because it uses vertical illumination, the effective irradiation area of arena court lighting fixtures is also smaller than outdoor venues, so the number of fixtures is also significantly more than outdoor courts; basketball arena court lighting installation height is not less than 7 meters (There must be no obstacles over 7 meters above the basketball court.) The height of the light pole in the outdoor basketball court is not less than 7 meters. Basketball arena court lighting should follow the principle of symmetry in the arrangement of lamps and lanterns.

Basketball arena lamps layout:

1. Gypsophila lamp arrangement: the arrangement in which the lamps are arranged above the site and the beam is perpendicular to the plane of the site. The top layout uses symmetrical light distribution lamps, which are suitable for training halls, operating arenas, and national fitness gyms.

2. The way of street lighting: that is, the lamps are arranged on both sides of the arena, and the beam is not perpendicular to the plane of the site. Asymmetric light distribution lamps should be used on the side of the road. When arranged on both sides, the aiming angle of the lamp (the angle between the aiming direction of the lamp and the vertical line) should not be greater than 65 °.

3. Mixed arrangement: the combination of the top arrangement and the two arrangement. The mixed arrangement should choose lamps with multiple light distribution forms, which have the characteristics of both the top arrangement and the two arrangement to achieve uniformity, while improving horizontal illumination and vertical illumination.

The fixtures in the basketball arena are mainly divided into lighting fixtures for the playing field and lighting fixtures for the auditorium. The basketball arena lighting fixtures use high-power, high-intensity,and anti-glare LED sports lighting fixtures. The lamps above the auditorium are general lighting, but pay attention to its ability in emergency situations to ensure the safe evacuation of the audience in the event of an accident.

1. OAK LED provide the professional led lighting fixtures for the basketball arena with characteristics as follow;

(1).The single lamp has high power. According to the actual installation height of the arena, the choice of LED lamp lighting ranges from 100W to 500W;

(2).Illumination requirements are high. Depending on the competition and training, the illumination requirements are:

Horizontal Illumination Average: 300Lx ~ 2000Lx,

Average vertical illuminance: 500Lx ~ 2000Lx;

(3) .The quality and color temperature of the light source are stable, generally around 5000K, and the color rendering index is more than 80%;

(4) .Ball games must use anti-glare fixtures to eliminate strobe effects;

(5).General requirements for uniformity of illuminance: TV broadcasts of domestic games, the uniformity of horizontal illuminance is above 0.5, and the uniformity of vertical illuminance is above 0.3;

The color uniformity of international television color television broadcasts is above 0.7, the uniformity of vertical illumination is above 0.6, and the ratio of the average value of horizontal illumination to the average value of vertical illumination is in the range of 0.5 ~~ 2.0

(6) .The glare level must be as small as possible, GR <50 is the eligibility standard;

(7).Illumination requirements for the auditorium: the average vertical illumination is 0.25 times the illumination of the competition area.

The choice of led fixtures for basketball arena lighting is also critical. Generally, OAK LED fixtures with glare-free  have been selecting for many basketball arena lighting, the game will not be dazzling and the athletes can play better!
