High School Gymnasium


Replacing the existing 400W metal halides (550W average system draw) with Cireon Tahoe 3-7-80 high bays provided an amazing improvement in this athletic facility. 

  • Light levels increased from 29fc to 36fc average

  • Significantly improved color rendering brought out the beautiful wood tines in the floor that, under the halides, had a very green hue.

  • Elimination of bulb and ballast maintenance (and associated lift expense). Volleyballs hitting the halides frequently shortened their life while robust solid state lighting is resilient against shock and vibration. 

  • Elimination of the long warm-up cycles was replaced with the instant on/off of the SSLs.

  • Significant reduction in HVAC load.
