The sports pitch lighting for Faythe Harriers which opened in 2009 was described by the Club as ‘exceeding all expectations’.
The new All Weather Pitch is rented out to different clubs for training and matches so it accomodates soccer, rugby and gaelic football as well as hurling players.
The Sports Pitch lighting consists of 2Kw Flat glass Floodlights to minimise glare and light spill which is a concern for Clubs located in residential and built up areas.
Four 16m rooted lighting columns were installed with 3 floodlights on each, providing 400 lux light level. The Pitch was 80m x 40m.
Typically, the light levels required for Gaelic Football, Soccer or Rugby are 500 Lux (Class 1), 200 Lux (Class 11) or 75 Lux (Class 111). Hurling has higher requirements because the ball is smaller and moving faster.
Lighting Class 1 refers to National or International competition. Lighting Class 11 refers to County or principal Local Clubs competition. Lighting Class 111 refers to local or small club competition or training, or school sports and recreation.
