MaxLite Develops Effective Lighting Solutions for Sports and Entertainment Venue

West Caldwell, New Jersey – MaxLite®, a global marketer and manufacturer of energy efficient lighting and lamps, has developed a complete line of energy efficient lighting solutions for pedestrian areas of sports venues and entertainment arenas.
Ideal for illuminating tunnels and corridors in venues, MaxLite’s 40-watt LED Wall Packs replace 175-watt metal halide fixtures while the 60-watt LED Canopy Lights replace inefficient 250-watt metal halide fixtures. Team players and cheerleaders easily navigate through the well-lit stadium tunnels from the locker rooms and the main facility to the fields. In addition, optimal lighting enables stadium employees to use the tunnels to access maintenance rooms and entrances to the truck bays while members of the press travel through the illuminated tunnels to reach the media rooms without a hitch.
“MaxLite is able to light entire facilities, inside and out, at entertainment and concert venues, baseball parks, football stadium and city walks,” said MaxLite’s Vice President of Product Marketing and Engineering Pat Treadway. “Additionally, these products can be purchased through MaxLite and financed in large part through utility rebates of up to $250 per fixture nationwide.”
MaxLite's full-cutoff LED 40-watt Wall Packs are DesignLights™ Consortium (DLC)-qualified and designed and engineered as maintenance free, energy efficient alternatives to traditional 175-watt metal halide lighting fixtures. These full cutoff LED Wall Packs eliminate upward illumination while delivering over 3,000 lumens to effectively illuminate walkways and corridors.
MaxLite's energy efficient LED Ceiling Canopy Fixtures promote uncompromising safety and security with a full flood beam angle and deliver excellent light and continuous energy savings.
Both LED Wall Packs and Ceiling Canopy Fixtures offer a 5000K (daylight) correlated color temperature (CCT) with a maximum brightness and a long life of 50,000 hours, and are backed by MaxLite's five-year limited warranty. These lightweight fixtures can be installed quickly and conveniently, in 30 minutes or less per fixture, while saving significant energy and maintenance costs.
Bmore Green, a full-service renewable energy company based in Maryland, installed MaxLite fixtures at a local sports stadium, which are depicted at http://www.maxlite.com/PDFs/PR/PRkit/MaxLite_Stadium.zip. In this Maryland venue installation, the facility replaced 73 240-watt metal halide wall packs with an equal amount of MaxLite’s 40-watt LED Wall Packs. In a one-for-one replacement, the facility also replaced 60 400-watt metal halide canopy fixtures with 70-watt canopy fixtures. The LED fixtures will save almost two million kWh of energy and $285,375 in energy and maintenance costs throughout the life of the fixtures. Additionally, the fixtures were purchased with a $250 per fixture rebate through Pepco, for an additional savings of $33,250 in upfront costs.
Other MaxLite products available for venue lighting include: LED and fluorescent vapor tight fixtures for parking garages and tunnels; high output LED flood, area and roadway street lights for outdoor parking lots, pathways and arena illumination; indoor LED and CFL fixtures and lamps to illuminate offices, lobbies and other interior spaces; and T5 and T8 linear fluorescent fixtures and lamps for a variety of interior and exterior environments.
