LED innovation has been revolutionising the lighting industry for the past ten years, namely in exterior residential and street lighting, and now it is ready to change the future of floodlighting.

LED floodlights provide adequate illumination for sporting fields, pathways and streets due to impeccable performance, and provide instant light if an outage were to occur from a safety perspective. During the floodlight season, more councils and sporting fields are retrofitting their older HID floodlights to embrace the new LED smart floodlight technology.

Gerard Lighting’s Briteline Raptor Floodlight range offers state-of- the-art technology to deliver exceptional performance and precision. The key to Raptor’s performance is its world-first and Australian-designed reflector system that houses the latest LED chips. The optical reflector system delivers dedicated asymmetric distribution, which provides better control, lower glare and less spill light – allowing for increased efficiency and reducing the impact on neighbouring properties.

The cutting-edge Raptor range complies with the Australian lighting standards and is designed to suit many applications – from sporting fields, tennis and netball courts to transit hubs and docks. Floodlighting for sports is setting new demands for quality and performance, for example; Rugby Union is required to comply with the Australian Standard – Sports Lighting (AS2560.2.3). This standard outlines specific minimum requirements on uniformity, glare, spill light and performance. Additionally, the evolution of sports broadcasting has seen an increased demand for clear and flicker-free lighting.

When it comes to smart LED lighting solutions, the Briteline Raptor in conjunction with Diginet RAPIX Lighting Control systems, provide total control with remote internet based monitoring, scheduling, user auditing and billing capabilities. Multi-field, multi-site control and monitoring is also possible using the RAPIX Lighting Control solution as the foundation.
