Powerful lighting solutions for sports facilities
With the BLV STATURION® LED spotlight series, we offer powerful lighting solutions for a wide variety of sports facilities in lighting classes I to III – for both indoor and outdoor use. Together with a partner, our company also realises lighting systems as a complete package: with the RegiSystem, sports facilities receive everything from one source, from project planning and control to turnkey installation.
We also continue to produce and sell our established BLV STATURION® metal halide lamps (also known as HQI lamps), which are manufactured exclusively at our company site in Steinhöring. A seal of quality, efficiency and durability Made in Germany.
However, the BLV brand does not only stand for high-quality sports facility lighting. We advise customers intensively on both LED lighting systems and conventional HQI lighting solutions: individually, project-related and objectively. As one of the few market players we offer both from a single source.
Through close contact with our customers, we recognise customer wishes at an early stage. We support them with scenario comparisons and lighting calculations. Project installations and sustainable after-sales service are also part of our range of services.
BLV is an independent brand of the Ushio Group and has been produced and distributed under the umbrella of Ushio Germany GmbH since 1 February 2021.
Light planning for sports facilities
Careful preparation for best results
Optimum visibility is essential in sports. This applies not only to actors, but also to referees and spectators. Therefore, some clear standards for luminosity, uniformity, glare limitation, and colour rendering have been defined in the European Sports Lighting standard DIN EN 12193. This directive defines lighting requirements for the most frequently practised sports. Generally, there are three main categories of lighting classes: I, II and III. We advise you in detail on all the requirements of the specific lighting class of your sports facility and on possible future expansion options.
