The development of the Sports-LITE training kits @ Ritelite (Systems) Ltd.

The development of the Sports-LITE training kits @ Ritelite (Systems) Ltd.

The spring of 2020 was an unusual time for everyone worldwide as the coronavirus pandemic impacted everyone’s lives. At Ritelite (Systems) Ltd we used some of the quieter days to push forward with new product development and one of the new products developed was the Sports-LITE training lights ready to launch for this year’s sports training season.

The Sports-LITE training lights have been developed as an easy to operate, store and transport solution for any sports training requirement. From working with our customers over the years we understood that lighting for training needs to be quick and safe to put up; ideally not need any external power source; and that it needs to provide superb light that evenly lights the playing surface without producing too much glare to affect the players.

With in-built lensing specific for sports, no trailing cables, no need for generators and able to be set up anywhere on any surface, the Sports-LITE ticks all the requirement boxes and has been designed in a modular way so that it will work for almost any sport for training. The lights are available in kit form from 2pcs to 10pcs or more if required and are supplied with all components neatly packed in robust carry bags for ease of transport and storage.

Power has always been an issue for training lighting for clubs. Generators are noisy and require cables to connect to lights and mains power is not often available on a training pitch. The Sports-LITE training lights are powered by rechargeable lithium battery packs, designed to last for over 2 hours duration, requiring no trailing cables and creating no noise. These charge within 6 hours ready to play again the following evening with spare battery packs available for increased usage.

Having created the Sports-LITE training lights that we felt met the requirements of our customers we wanted to show customers how great the lights actually are and as lockdown measures were lifted put the Sports-LITE training kits through demo training evenings with a number of different sports including football, rugby, netball, cricket nets, tennis and RC cars. The product was fantastic in every application as these photos show. Orders are now flooding in and we can’t wait to see the kits in use very soon.

Ritelite’s Latest Demo @Rhiwbina RFC

Ritelite’s Latest Demo @Rhiwbina RFC

The Ritelite demo team’s latest super demo this week was held at Rhiwbina RFC in Cardiff, Wales on a cold January evening. The team demonstrated the K65 Quad Pod Mobile Lighting Towers to several local clubs and representatives from the Welsh Rugby Union Group (WRU).

The Ritelite team were able to demonstrate just how bright the Quad Pod K65 Mobile Lighting towers are and how they can completely change winter training planning for Rugby clubs across the country. As the product can be manoeuvred over virtually any terrain all pitch areas are able to be used for training, keeping players from damaging match pitches. The compactness of the Quad Pod K65 Mobile Lighting towers enables the product to be able to be stored compactly when not in use and is able to fit through a standard door.

Many thanks to Rhiwbina RFC for looking after us so well.

Ritelite takes Stamford Tennis Club into the 21st Century with Upgraded Lighting Project

Ritelite takes Stamford Tennis Club into the 21st Century with Upgraded Lighting Project

Stamford Tennis Club are one of the largest tennis clubs in Lincolnshire, with over 370 members that share the use of 7 all-weather courts with Stamford School.

The 14-year-old lighting system that was originally in place at the courts were power hungry sodium floodlights that offered very low colour rendition and overall quality of light to the courts. This meant that tracking the ball when in play was proving difficult for the court users.

Graham Winestone, Stamford Tennis Club House Manager, was passionate about finding a unique, long-term, sustainable solution that would improve lighting levels over the court areas in a joint resurfacing revamp project.

The challenge that was brought to Ritelite’s Prolite Projects team was how to raise the LUX levels significantly above the old system to achieve the required LTA lighting level standards.

After a full site evaluation, light modelling and initial site testing, the Ritelite Project team carefully selected multiple, highly efficient LED Sport products from the Prolite range to recommend for installation at the site.

These luminaires combine highly efficient, high output LED’s with state-of-the-art asymmetric lensing to prevent both upward light spillage as well as glare on the courts.

Once the fittings had been approved an installation plan was devised by the Prolite Projects team to help minimise disruption to the club’s operational times. This plan included the critical setup process of the light heads, optimising light levels for the courts ongoing.

The final results met and exceeded expectations. The LUX on the PPA was improved by more than double from 247 LUX to over 570 LUX (within the PPA areas) and the high quality white light provided creates a much better environment for players.

“I would definitely recommend Ritelite to any clubs who are considering upgrading their lighting system. They develop productive relationships with customers and deliver to time, cost and specification.” Graham Winestone – House Manager, Stamford Tennis Club

Ritelite Light’s Up Depots for Boels Rental

Ritelite Light’s Up Depots for Boels Rental

Ritelite have recently been working closely with Boels Rental in both existing depots and on new planned depots to ensure that the lighting installed is safe, functional and efficient.

One of the most current projects has been focused on a new Boels Rental Depot in Newcastle. Using the site plans the team was able to generate lighting plots and recommend a lighting solution for the new depot.

The products installed were Ritelite’s new 150W linear LED Bay lights fitted with Microwave sensors. The fittings met the required specification for the client and had been installed at different depots previously with good feedback and performance.

“I have been working with Ashley Newton at Ritelite Systems for over a year now and have always found him to be very responsive to our demands, be it for lighting designs, quotations or specifications of products.

Good lighting is key to ensuring our estates are compliant, energy efficient and safe places for our colleagues to work in. The benefit of working with Ritelite is that once provided with our drawings and requirements they produce all the lighting designs for us, suggest an appropriate product and provide us with a quote to supply the equipment. Buying direct from the manufacturer, where we have a direct single point of contact has proved so much easier than dealing with an Electrical Wholesalers, as we have done previously. 

Ashley has recently helped us with our depot in Newcastle, a site that will enable us to grow our presence in the North East of England and better serve our customers with our ever expanding range of equipment. We decided to make use of 19 of their newest luminaries, the Prolite 150W LED High Bay Linear Light with Microwave Sensors. The fittings arrived well packaged on a pallet and from opening the first unit I was struck by the quality of the fitting, no cheap tinny enclosures, no thin lenses and no exposed dazzling bright LED chips. Installation of the fittings were also a breeze, a pair of sturdy eyes pre-cast into the aluminium heat sink made hanging the fittings easy, as did the pre-wired flex of more than ample length. I’ve had experience of fittings with Microwave detectors in the past, I’ve also had the experience of control from the ground, full control of detection range, dimming levels and durations and best of all at what ambient level to turn off altogether.

Are these the best fittings I’ve used in my 14 years as an Electrician? Undoubtedly!

We look forward to working with Ritelite Systems again as Boels Rental continues its bold expansion plans across the UK.” Adam Goodfellow, Safety & Compliance Manager, Boels Rental https://www.boels.co.uk/about-boels

Ritelite K65 Quad Pod Mobile Sports Lighting Towers light up the German Football Bundesliga!

Ritelite have recently supplied 8x K65-LED6-200w 6.5m LED mobile sports floodlighting towers to a German 1st Division Bundesliga football club for use on a full size 1st team training pitch and also by the youth academy.

Ritelite created Lighting Scans based on the exact pitch size to determine the optimum illumination of the playing surface. This enabled accurate positioning of the towers and each individual light head to maximize the light levels and achieve the optimum uniformity across the pitch. This solution can often be used to solve the typical problems associated with fixed lighting mast installations which require local authority planning permissions. A significantly lower investment cost and far greater flexibility are just two of additional key benefits of this solution.

The Quad Pods can be easily moved to any pitch where lighting is required, enabling facilities managers to more evenly spread the wear and tear on the playing surface across all of the pitches.
