The Problem

Our customer was looking for a way to reduce energy and maintenance costs at their community recreation center. The existing metal halide fixtures were operating seven days a week and were becoming very expensive to maintain. Their lack of durability resulting from common activities associated with gymnasium lighting resulted in significant maintenance costs.
