The major objective for every stadium field is proper density of the pitch. The more leaves per cm2, the more photosynthesis per cm2 is possible.
Unlike our Complete Light Spectrum (CLS) technology, High Pressure Sodium technology is limited to only the yellow/orange/red part of the light spectrum. This can only trigger increased grass length growth. Therefore, the field needs to be mowed more often to achieve a higher density. CLS, on the other hand, has the special spec to give the growth more branching to close the pitch faster. As soon as this is achieved, the specs can be adjusted to invest light energy into stabilizing the roots and leaves. The more resistant the pitch, the shorter the time for recovering/recultivating the pitch, and the better it is protected against disease and stress and other problems – which saves energy.
Faster pitch regeneration also means that the groundsman will spend less time maintaining it. A strong and healthy pitch can also be used more frequently and for different events.
CLS runs on LED technology which by itself is known to be much more energy-efficient than traditional High Pressure Sodium (HPS) technology.
LED technology can also be operated at variable intensities, whereby HPS technology can only be switched on or off.
