Light Control

Gonzaga University in Spokane, Wash., required a lighting system for its new men's baseball stadium that produced high foot-candle levels. The field is surrounded by major streets and dormitories in downtown Spokane with a strict no-glare ordinance. Qualite Sports Lighting installed a system fulfilling university requirements without adversely affecting the surrounding cityscape with spill light. Subsequently, Qualite will install lighting for the main soccer stadium and practice area.
