Cricket Field LED Lighting

Meeting Australian & International Standards: EN12193

Lighting a cricket field to the correct levels is very important due to the speed and size of the ball used, to ensure all players remain safe and can easily maintain a clear vision of the ball. There are no Australian Standards written for cricket field lighting, but a Community Cricket Facilities Guideline has been developed by Cricket Australia, which clearly outlines recommended lux levels and uniformities to be achieved to ensure a game of cricket can be played safely and comfortably. High quality LED lighting can make a significance difference to the overall playing experience and visual comfort.

The Cricket Australia guidelines are based on International standards EN12193 which identifies three main levels of lighting for non-televised cricket matches, and two levels for training/match practice. If you expect to progress from one level to the next in the foreseeable future, ensure that the poles and lighting set-up is designed to accommodate extra lighting, so a complete overhaul is not necessary when you decide to upgrade.
