Swiming LED Lighting

Lighting a swimming pool

The main requirement is to ensure the safety of users by providing adequate lighting and reflection control on the surface of the water. Control of surface reflection is particularly important for staff to take care of swimmers in trouble in the pool. Given the complex nature of the pool design and the restrictions placed on the placement of projectors, it is important to consider lighting in the early stages of pool design.
This is particularly important for staff to detect swimmers in difficulty. This may be hindered by the reflection of a projector obscuring a swimmer’s view into the water.
The reflected image of a projector in the water increases with the angle of incidence. Once this angle exceeds 70 °, these reflections could mask the swimmer of divers and pool attendants. Care must be taken to position the projectors in relation to the principal direction of vision of the security guards.
