Frequently Asked Questions

Click or tap on any of the questions below to see the answer.

Can I mount an SFL on an existing pole?

There are several considerations, the most important ones being age and condition of the pole, pole type/classification, EPA, maximum weight, and wind speeds. These calculations can get very complex hence we recommend doing a detailed study to make this decision.

Can the fixture be painted in different colours?

Yes, including the visor and mounting. Please see the ordering guide on the respective spec sheet for more information. Note: custom colours are subject to additional cost.

What is the standard surge protection offered in the SFL?

The SFL offers a dual surge protection of 6kV on the driver and 10kV external making it highly resistant from surges due transient voltage spikes. Optional 20kV available as an extra.

Can the visor be mounted on the bottom of the fixture?

Yes, the visor can be mounted anywhere on the fixture using screws included in the package.

How do I know which beam pattern to use?

The optimal beam patterns will depend on your specific installation needs and pole mounting heights. For a more detailed insight into sports lighting beam patterns, see the “Different Beam Patterns and Options” section of this article.
