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.
