Converting your Hockey Rink Lights to LED

Tennis Court Lighting Hockey Rinks are both indoors and outdoors. Converting over to LED makes sense in both cases, offering bright, high quality light while only consuming a fraction of what Metal Halide Light fixtures consume. Create brighter surface areas and save money on your maintenance and operating costs at the same time.

Indoor Ice Rink Lighting

Indoor hockey rinks contain high bays and flood lights to light up the ice surface. Light levels have to be high enough so the players can see the puck on the ice. Places like Canada have ice facilities open all year long. Some are open 18 hours a day, where hockey is played from 6am to midnight.

This makes ice hockey rinks high use facilities. And unlike traditional lighting sources like Metal Halide, LED is instant on and instant off. So turning off lights, or some lights, in between ice activity is now an option. Nothing saves more energy than off. So being in full control of your lighting allows you to save money.

MyLEDLightingGuide offers LED High Bays and LED Retrofit Kits that can replace up to 1500W Metal Halide. All are either UL or ETL Listed, and all are either DLC Standard or DLC Premium Qualified, which allows you to apply for rebates with your utility companies. Different color temperatures are available as well. So if you have old style lights that point upwards to a white or reflective ceiling, consider retrofitting. It's as simple as a bulb or ballast replacement.

LED Retrofit Kits

LED Retrofit Kits are designed to replace Metal Halide and High Pressure Sodium in your existing fixture.

Extremely efficient up to 165 lumens/watt and DLC Premium Qualified to maximize your rebates!

Outdoor Ice Rink Lighting

Currently, outdoor ice hockey lighting consists of either area lights or flood lights. Converting to LED makes sense, as it provides a high quality light for the players to play under. And with L70's over 100,000 hours, the quality and quantity of lumens will be around for a very long time.

All our lights for ice hockey rinks are either UL or ETL Listed, DLC Qualified for rebates, and are built to last. Your maintenance and operating costs should be dramatically reduced by installing outdoor rink lighting LEDs.

Photometrics for Ice and Hockey Rinks

Thinking about converting your hockey rink over to LED but not sure how it will look? The best way is to run a photometric, or a software simulation, of the lighting results before you buy. A photometric evaluation will allow you to simulate different types of lights so that you can visualize the foot candles on the ice surface. We can assist you in developing a photometric of your hockey arena. Give us the dimensions, the mounting height and the light layout pattern and we can create a photometric evaluation of your ice hockey arena.

Benefits of LED Hockey Rink Lights

Here are the upsides of LED technology for hockey rinks:

Higher quality of light. Hockey Arena lighting (and LED in general) offers better and wider range of color temperatures and Color Rending Index ratings. On top of this; LED will never flicker, buzz, and lumen depreciation is much slower and generally less than other technologies like we previously discussed. All of which are highly important when defining a quality lighting system.

Rebate eligible. By buying commercial lighting that is DesignLights Consortium qualified, you may be eligible for incentives  a time of purchase or after the hockey rink light fixture is installed.

Longer life span. LED products offer a considerably longer life span than it's competing light technologies. LEDs can last 2-3 or even 4 times longer than other lights which reduce costs in two ways:

1. Less buying of new light bulbs
2. Less changing of bulbs = less maintenance costs

By having to change your bulbs less often, you don't have to pay a maintenance crew to switch out the bulbs as often. And since they lights are typically high in the air this can get pricey especially when you have 20, 30, or even 40 lights to switch out. LEDs will reduce your maintenance costs by 2-3 times.

Reduce your energy usage.Looking to reduce your lighting energy costs? Well, LED will do just that and not by a small amount either. LED can reduce your lighting energy usage by up to 75% depending on your existing lighting system in place currently. This can improve your bottom line, save your company / organization money, all while improving your spaces quality.
