Wimbledon's Roof Shines

Venture Lighting has supplied its high output Tubular Metal Halide lamps and control gear as part of the improvements to the Centre Court at Wimbledon. The lamps were specified due to Venture’s ability to meet the very tight time constraints of the project to supplement the centre court uplighting and sports lighting system.

The lamps, supplied by Colchester based OEM, Supalux and via Newey & Eyre at Park Royal, were installed by Skanska Rashleigh Weatherfoil as part of a multi-million pound improvement project that included increasing seating capacity to 15,000 and installing a retractable roof over the Centre Court. The new 5, 200 square metre “folding translucent fabric concertina” design roof structure, which can close in approximately 8 minutes, was in place for the 2009 Championships tennis tournament that took place in June/July.

With the lighting conditions of paramount importance for the players, spectators and for television reporting especially with the requirements for HD coverage, Venture’s lamps have been used to illuminate the north
The 2,000W rated High Output Tubular Metal Halide lamps which is one of the highest levels available from any 2,000W lamp on the market today. The lamps offer fast warm up times, long life along with high colour stability and excellent colour rendering.

Venture, the world leader in metal halide technology can offer a wide range of lamps ranging from 35W – 2,000W for a variety of applications. The company has the most comprehensive range of UK-stocked lamps and control gear along with ballasts, ignitors and capacitors.
