The Lutron Athlite gymnasium lighting control solution combines preset controls and high-efficiency fixtures with fluorescent dimming ballasts to deliver significant energy savings and enhanced light quality.
The product reportedly allows churches to:
• Reduce lighting energy consumption by 50 – 80%.
• Provide the highest quality lighting for school and community activities.
• Increase the flexibility and functionality of a gymnasium space.
• Create a revenue stream for additional projects.
According to Lutron, many traditional gymnasium lighting systems can create glare and uneven illumination, known as “hot spots.” Athlite creates an evenly illuminated surface and reduces overhead glare, providing a high-performance athletic environment.
In addition, the company reports that most gymnasium lighting is all on/all off, forcing a gym to either be over-lit or in the dark. Athlite provides four preset lighting levels, the ability to manually adjust lighting, and all on/off so church staff had the right light to create a flexible, multi-purpose space.
