THE LARGEST INDOOR SPORTS CENTER IN THE NETHERLANDS IS REVITALIZED
For years, De Uithof has been known for its ice rink, where countless major competitions have taken place; Since 2000, De Uithof has been transformed into the largest indoor sports center in the Netherlands.
A stone's throw from the beach of Kijkduin, De Uithof has real snow all year round on a 400 meter slope! The De Uithof ski hall has a main slope with a length of 211 m. and an area for beginners with a length of 90 m; it is a multifunctional
venue for sports and events.
Multi-sports facilities must ensure adequate lighting that meets the needs of the different types of sports to which they are designated. It is important to create a lighting project that provides uniform light, of adequate intensity and with minimal reflection.
There were numerous requirements to be met:
A FLEXIBLE AND SCALABLE SYSTEM
The lighting of the building must be easily configurable so as to adapt to the different types of events that take place in the ski center.
In this specific case, the proprietors asked for particular attention to the brightness levels of the lighting fixture; Irregular paths had to be illuminated and made safe.
Inside, the ski center boasts an ambient temperature of -5°C all year round; Any lighting fixture to be installed must guarantee high efficiency thermal conduction, be reliable and ensure a prolonged, almost maintenance-free life.
In order to meet the project requirements, the Stellar series by Cree Lighting was selected; Perfect for obtaining a high level of illuminance and maximizing high efficiency thermal conduction
Thanks to its 80 CRI color rendering, Stellar provides controlled and comfortable lighting for target applications.
The Stellar series is designed for substantial energy savings and exceptional luminous flux without sacrificing what's important: better light and a nearly maintenance-free operation.
