Hills Shire Council approached Philips Lighting with the aim of revamping Castle Hill BMX Club’s lighting with a complete LED solution. Key for the Council was energy efficiency & reduced maintenance, together with ability to provide concentrated light with reduced glare, improving rider safety. The OptiVision LED system used offered optimised operational savings across maintenance, energy, light quality, safety and visual comfort. The system could drive an energy reduction of up to 65%, increase the flexibility of the facility, and improve the green footprint of the space.
“Not every BMX track in NSW, or the country for that matter, has lighting. We thought we were lucky in the first place just having lighting. The fact that we can now train every night of the week is spectacular, it’s really rare within the BMX community.
“The track is lit up beautifully. It allows us to have more training opportunities for all kids, from our club and from other clubs. It opens up extra riding opportunities for adults and kids to get extra training and exercise” – Joanne, Castle Hill BMX Club
