Innovative sports lighting for your community

More than a sporting field, South Belgrave Oval in Victoria is also a hub for the whole community, a place to come together. So, when Gerard Lighting Group was asked to light up the oval, they jumped at the chance, introducing an innovative lighting technology never-before used on a community sports oval which will save 70 per cent on energy bills and provide a magnificently bright space for all to enjoy.

Gerard Lighting Group, which has been operating in Australia for more than 100 years, decided to install Sylvania Briteline™ LED Raptor floodlights at the oval. However, there was some resistance initially to the use of LED lights, due to installation costs and lack of proven performance. But the Council and the South Belgrave Football Club worked together to find the evidence, which demonstrated the benefits of the technology and the massive cost savings that would be achieved with LED oval lighting.

South Belgrave Oval is one of the pioneering community football clubs to take up the LED Technology at its emergence by instaling LED floodlighting on an AFL oval, one of 2,700 sporting ovals across Australia. This LED installation will be used throughout the entire oval which is home to AFL players ranging from four to ten in the Auskick group, juniors, seniors, all the way up to the veteran players who are 35 years old and above. The South Belgrave Cricket Club component of the oval caters for three senior, veteran and junior sides, and with the introduction of AFL Women's competitions, there is a high demand on access to more sporting ovals. The quality and performance of Sylvania Briteline™ LED Raptor floodlights, allows South Belgrave and the overall community to reap the benefits of the additional access to this oval.

Using optical technology developed by Gerard Lighting, the LED floodlights distribute light exactly where needed, providing better control, lower glare and less spill light. The Sylvania Briteline™ LED Raptor floodlights use less than 40 per cent of the energy used in traditional 2KW Metal Halide floodlights and reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
