WORCESTER, Mass., Oct. 3, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Access Fixtures is introducing a new outdoor LED basketball court lighting package expanding its extensive line of sports lighting packages. Using only 966 watts, the lighting system uses less than 25% of the energy used by comparable HID basketball lighting packages. Rated for 85% lumen maintenance at 100,000 hours, used five hours per evening seven nights per week the luminaires will provide light for an estimated 55 years. At 70+ CRI, the colors are crisp and the light is white. Additionally the luminaires are instant on - instant off, dimmable, and can be used with controls such as a high-performance integral photocontrol.

"As LED technology progresses and the prices fall, LED sports lighting is becoming the logical choice," said Access Fixtures CEO, Steven Rothschild. He continued, "Today outdoor basketball courts can be installed for not much more than an HID lit court and will reduce maintenance and electricity costs, making the premium for LEDs worth the price."

Access Fixtures' new basketball court lighting package includes six poles, six Toshiba LED luminaires, and mounting hardware. 10kV (ANSI/IEEE C64.41.2) surge protectors are standard. High-performance integral photocontrols are optional. Luminaire life of 100,000 hours or more is based on operation in a 25 degrees C (77 degrees F) ambient environment. LED rated life is based on 9,000 hours of LED testing per LM-80-08, and projected values per IESNA TM21-11. The luminaires are CETLUS listed to applicable UL standards. DLC (DesignLightsTM Consortium) qualified, Lighting Facts® listed, IP66 rated, and come with a 5-year limited warranty by Toshiba LED Lighting Systems Division.
