Les Quennevais Sports centre is a modern purpose-built sports complex situated in the heart of Jersey near St Brelade’s Bay. Les Quennevais is also the home of Jersey Bulls FC.
Abacus Lighting forged a working relationship with the State of Jersey several years ago and we were delighted to be approached to work with them on this new project for their Sports Centre and a future project with a local school.
Sports pitch floodlighting generally involves lighting levels between 75 Lux and 500 lux; our lighting engineers understood the usage of the pitch and designed and lighting solution to achieve their desired levels of 500 lux and lighting uniformity of 0.7 with the flexibility to reduce the lighting levels for training and increase for competitions.
Our lighting solution involved the installation of our HL330-based hinged masts with Challenger 1 LED floodlights.
• Challenger 1 LED x 36 installation of HL330 – based hinged masts x 8
• Designed to 500 Lux with 0.7 uniformity
The benefits of the Abacus Lighting hinged masts include a virtually maintenance-free solution for the Les Quennevais Sports Centre, a faster installation, and the fixed headframe means the floodlights stay stable, even in strong winds.
The Challenger 1 LED offers the sports centre cutting-edge floodlight technology with unrivalled performance, a sleek modern design, and excellent and effective light control to prevent light pollution. Installation included a full hard wired control system utilising DALI lighting control system – allowing the lighting to use a digital signal for more precise and flexible control.
The design produces light similar to daylight and ensures a full flow of light without glare, along with energy-saving benefits and an impressive lifespan.
