Case Study

Broadlands Golf is a state-of-the-art Golf facility located in Wolverhampton that offers the perfect place to practice. Whether you are a serious golfer, occasional swinger, or an absolute beginner, the facility is the perfect place to hone your golf skills.

The management team at Broadlands Golf authorised the upgrade of the facility’s lighting system to further improve the customer experience. Ansell Lighting’s industry leading lighting design team designed a scheme that utilised some of our most powerful products within our vast product portfolio.

Ansell Lighting Designer, Nick Gwilliam, said: “We get many different projects through to us here at Ansell. I was especially excited when Broadlands Gold Driving Range landed on my desk. We take careful consideration when designing our proposals and we immerse ourselves in every last detail to fully understand the requirements of the customer and scope of the project. We work closely with the Area Sales Manager who submitted the project to us to ensure we deliver a lighting scheme that goes above and beyond the expectations set.”

He added: “Ansell’s large product portfolio means we have many solutions at our disposal. We are a very collaborative team in the Lighting Design department and after deliberation, it was clear that our Colossus HO LED Floodlight, Tornado Pro and Aztec LED Floodlight were more than capable of meeting the requirements.”

Focusing in on the products Nick utilised and understanding the major lighting requirements of Broadlands Golf Driving Range, it’s clear why those three products were selected. Three products of the upmost quality, boasting power in abundance and as reliable as any installer could dream for.

Colossus HO LED Floodlight is the ultimate floodlight. Superb performance, Ingress Protection against solid objects and water to IP65, Impact Strength to IK08, supplied with a remote mounted LED Driver housed within an IP65 enclosure, meaning that the Colossus and associated control gear housing will remain sealed and operational during the full warrantied lifetime of the luminaire.

The floodlight is constructed with die-cast aluminium and finished in a black coating. Featuring a compact size with the length of 441mm, a height/depth of 603mm, and a width of 194mm, combined with a reduced weight, means this fitting is ideal for a multitude of large exterior applications.

Tornado Pro LED Non-Corrosive was installed at the Tee-Off area. Supplied with an integral LED Driver and with featuring a superb performance which exceeds that of the previous energy efficient technology of T5 linear fluorescent.

Being an ultra-slim IP65 linear sealed fitting, with a unique base design which caters for multiple installation methods and that of installer friendly imbedded features to aid in accurate and fast installation for any application, together with a quick release LED array and gear tray assembly providing the installer the means to faster installation or maintenance, as well as fast latching and permanently located stainless steel side clips ensure a quick and secure connection, all together makes the Tornado Pro the ideal optimum solution for a multitude of different applications.

The illumination used for the associated putting area was provided by Ansell Aztec floodlight which was mounted on a tubular steel column and twin bracket arm with single bolt fixing to allow rotational positioning and adjustment of inclination to precisely aim the light exactly where required, making it an ideal solution for the putting area.

The Aztec range of high-performance diecast aluminium luminaires is available with either an asymmetrical light distribution pattern or a symmetrical light distribution pattern. With five different fittings across a wide number of wattages from 50W all the way up to 300W, Aztec is a wonderful solution for many outdoor applications.

Overall, the project was a smashing success. Management at Broadlands Golf were impressed with the exceptional quality and reliability of Ansell Lighting products. As well as the huge energy savings the business will make because of the efficient operation of each luminaire.
