2017 ASBA Technical Meeting
In early December, we attended the American Sports Builders Association (ASBA) Technical Meeting in New Orleans as exhibitors. The event was a great opportunity to reconnect with old colleagues, customers, and friends while the seminars were informative and interesting. There, we spoke about our new AirLink Wireless Control System and its capabilities and features. We also had an LED CourtBlade fixture in our booth, allowing us to demonstrate the AirLink Control System firsthand.
To end the Technical Meeting, there was a reception and dinner to acknowledge the ASBA Facility of the Year Awards. We are proud to have contributed to the following ASBA Facility of the Year Award projects:
Outstanding Outdoor Pickleball Facility of the Year: Sun City Festival Pickleball Park - Buckeye, AZ (Contractor: General Acrylics)
Outstanding Residential Tennis Facility of the Year: Lower Merion Residence - Gladwyne, PA (Contractor: Pro-Sport Construction)
Outstanding Residential Tennis Facility of the Year Silver Award: Pinecrest Residence - Pinecrest, FL (Contractor: Fast-Dry Courts)
Thank you to our customers for making 2017 a strong start for Frasure Reps. We will continue to provide lighting solutions that take your facility to the next level.
LED CourtBlade Design Guide
For those who do not have a background in lighting, providing suggestions on a lighting system can be challenging. In order to provide more clarity for our customers, we have created an LED CourtBlade Design Guide (PDF). In the guide, there are renderings and statistics for lighting layouts we most commonly use for tennis, pickleball, and other court lighting applications. Statistics in the guide include dimensions of courts, number of poles/court, fixture specifications, footcandle levels and uniformity, and other relevant illumination statistics.
Frasure Reps supplied (48) LSI LED CourtBlade fixtures for six tennis courts at LeTourneau University in Longview, TX. The application at LETU was a retrofit, with 1000W metal halide fixtures being replaced by LED CourtBlade fixtures at pre-existing pole locations. The courts are all illuminated at over 50 FC and provide superior uniformity for collegiate-level play. LeTourneau University competes as an NCAA Division III school in the American Southwest Conference.
Residential Tennis Court - Parker, CO
This new residential tennis court in Parker, CO installed (6) LSI LED CourtBlade fixtures with its superior illumination and uniformity while reducing the residents’ energy expenses. With the fixture’s forward throw configuration, it greatly reduces the amount of light spillage outside the courts. The LED lighting system will provide consistent light levels over a long period of time with little to no maintenance required.
