Nitro Swimming, Austin, Texas
The Austin area’s premier competitive swimming andswim lessons club, Nitro Swimming, was preparingto build a West Austin location to meet the growingdemand of its customers. Nitro Swimming Owner Mike Koleber knew that he wanted to duplicate asmany features as possible at the new location as athis existing Cedar Park/North Austin facility exceptfor the lighting -- the compact fluorescent lights(CFLs) were failing at a high rate from moistureseeping into them. Replacement costs were as muchas $7,000 a year. Koleber was determined to solvethis dilemma at the new complex.
Better light with fewer watts. No maintenance. All with a 10-year warranty. “We couldn’t be happier,” Koleber said.Nitro Swimming’s customers are also impressed with ActiveLED’s light output. “Our customers have commented onhow they love the improved light quality,” added Koleber. “Wehave a lot of evening classes for children and adults. The lightsseem to fill the pool with natural daylight, making it a verypleasant experience. It’s a nice effect to have along with theenergy and operational savings.”
After conducting a successful assessment of ActiveLED
Wall Wash Lights at the existing facility,the new location received 32 Wall Wash Lights at 52watts each, for a total of 1,664 watts. The resultshave had an immediate payback in terms of better illumination and no maintenance. At night, the ActiveLED lights create a uniform, brilliant white lightover the Olympic-sized pool.In a humid environment like an indoor swimmingcomplex, ActiveLED solid-state lighting performs muchbetter than any conventional lighting because thefixtures are sealed and rated for damp locations. Another advantage is that ActiveLED lighting uses upto 85% less energy and lasts far longer thanconventional lighting. Rated at 90,000 lumen hours(24/7 is 8,760 hours per year), ActiveLED lights arethe most sustainable, longest lasting LED fixtures onthe market.Ringdale offers a complete line of ActiveLED fixturessuitable for indoor and outdoor sports facilitiesincluding gymnasiums, coliseums and stadiums. For advanced lighting control capabilities, ActiveLEDfixtures can be interconnected with LightSpace
