The Oshawa Civic Centre is a multi-purpose recreational facility located in Oshawa, Ontario, Canada. The recreational complex was originally paid for by the public back in 1964. It was designed to be home to the Oshawa Generals OHL hockey league but was later retrofitted into the recreational complex there today.
THE LED LIGHT FIXTURES HAVE A RATED LIFE OF OVER 50,000 HOURS AND ARE NOW INSTALLED IN LOCATIONS THAT CAN BE EASILY ACCESSED FOR MAINTENANCE MOVING FORWARD.
WHAT CONCERN ARE WE SOLVING?
The prior lighting conditions comprised of incandescent lights that were not only difficult to maintain but were providing inadequate lighting. The cities energy auditor and maintenance staff were looking to supplement the present lighting with new efficient LED fixtures intended for their Natatorium making the area safer and more aesthetically pleasing.
A standard issue that arises for indoor pools is that general incandescent lights cause reflections on the water’s surface. This can be a danger for swimmers who could be stuck in a life or death situation and need help from guests or the lifeguard on duty. Safety, dependability, and durability are a few required characteristics of any indoor pool lighting design and installation.
The Oshawa Recreational Centre had Ursa’s LED fixtures installed comprising of ( 26 ) 100-watt and ( 16 ) 185-watt fixtures alongside the deck of the pool. The new LED lights were focused to accomplish maximum efficiency and light uniformity. Natatoriums are known to be very humid and have hot conditions often decreasing the life expectancy of luminaires. The level of humidity typically is very high (roughly 50 to 60%) in indoor pool environments, they also produce chlorine vapors, which quicken the erosion of materials. Ursa’s lights are IP65 rated and are built tough to withstand the harsh humid conditions while utilizing 30+ years of thermal management resisting the heat and outlasting the competitors.
By adopting Ursa’s LED lighting over conventional HPS lighting typically found in most commercial facilities, they were able to solve the visibility issue that was a large concern for the area of the dealership. HPS lights generate light with a narrow spectrum and have an extremely low Color Rendering Index, which simply does not accurately showcase colors.
Because of the well thought out solutions provided by Ursa, employees at Kenworth Trucking Cambridge are now benefiting from secure, enhanced light quality for many years to come. Along with energy savings of up to 50 percent when compared to HPS.
URSA exists to serve the lighting world, providing innovative solutions through our core platforms. As a subsidiary of Cofan USA, we leverage their 30 years of experience in thermal management and combine that with our revolutionary 3-pad flip chip design to create LED products that are beautifully designed and will lower your energy costs by up to 70%. Our vision is set on changing the thermal industry, creating a new standard in efficiency and affordability.
