About Courtlite® Direct Systems

Courtlite® Direct is a proprietary lighting system specifically designed for indoor Tennis facilities. Our system uses three tiers with unique angles to provide maximum lighting uniformity. The Courtlite® Direct system is available in Pro and Recreational series and is designed for each facility based on the your individual lighting requirements.

Courtlite® Rec

This indoor tennis court lighting system is the most energy efficient (5616 watts per court) of all the Courtlite® systems. It is designed to provide recreational light levels for every day club level of play, however the light levels are still superior compared to most facilities in the US.

Courtlite® Pro

This is the king of the courts as this system is the highest performance system available today providing excellent tournament lighting. Even with the Courtlite® Pro's high light quality it is still extremely energy efficient (8420 watts per court. Watt for Watt the Courtlite® Pro systems are the best tennis lighting system you can buy.

Total Lighting Control and Management

Micro management is becoming a huge part of everyday business; your tennis lighting is no exception. Courtlite® designs its systems with maximum manageability. Studies of several sports facilities showed that an annual vacancy rate of 25%, or more was very common. However courts using Metal Halide lights have to leave their lights on continuously due to long start up time. The result is fully lit vacant courts, consuming energy and not producing revenue. A Courtlite® system will provide the maximum manageability because it utilizes T-5 fluorescent lamps and multiple ballasts. This design feature allows for "instant ON" providing three different light levels that you can choose based on vacancy or the type of event being staged.

Light Quality

Courtlite™ Direct Light Quality vs Metal Halide Indirect Light Quality

Our application of T-5 fluorescent technology offers superior light quality. Courtlite's® direct fluorescent lamps offer a high concentration of blue light, which is absorbed by the eye more efficiently than the yellow light of indirect metal halide, Courtlite® also provides less strain and a more visible light. Similar to outdoor light, the colors and contrast of the tennis court and ball come alive, and the contrast of the courts is impeccable. With quality lighting on the ball, the play of the game is enhanced; players can now see the spin on the ball, since the ball is luminated on 70% of the ball surface. With Courtlite®'s direct lighting, the player will rarely see any shadows on the ball that are inherent with indirect lighting.
