In addition to typical light quality concerns, natatoriums and all indoor swimming pools bring special environmental requirements. Natatorium lighting fixtures and controls must be designed and certified to safely operate in a wet and warm environment. Often, access to luminaires is difficult, so minimizing maintenance is a practical consideration. Long-life, low-maintenance LED fixtures are ideal. Also, glare control, beam spread and uniform distribution are particularly relevant for ensuring high-quality natatorium lighting.
Natatorium lighting is a success when it’s forgotten. Swimmers and spectators don’t notice it because the illumination it provides is perfectly distributed and glare-free. And the rugged dependability of long-life luminaires lets facilities management get on with other tasks instead of pool lighting maintenance.

A: Pool lighting fixtures require special considerations to withstand the continuous warm and moist environment. Glare-free lighting is especially important here. Maintenance is typically difficult, since ceilings tend to be high — and located over water! Choose long-life LED fixtures that are rated for wet locations and designed to deliver quality, glare-free illumination.
