Musco shines with Total Light Control

Musco is proving a shining light with its Total Light Control—TLC for LED technology, an affordable system that delivers pinpoint light control for recreational facilities. 

TLC for LED, which is guaranteed for up to 25 years from foundation to poletop, is a trouble-free solution capable of controlling light with precision on the field to create an unmatched playing and viewing experience, while virtually eliminating glare and spill for nearby homes, the surrounding environment, and the night sky.

Jeff Rogers, Vice President of Musco, said:

This new system achieves a level of light control never before possible. We’ve installed systems using the LED light source since 2008 and understand its unique challenges and advantages. With our knowledge of the science of controlling and applying light, TLC for LED provides superior on-field lighting that’s now cost effective for typical recreational facilities.

As with Musco’s metal halide lighting solutions, TLC for LED is designed and engineered in 5 Easy Pieces as the company’s Light-Structure System.

This system approach offers streamlined installation and long-term reliability, with surge and lightning protection critical for the LED’s sensitive electronic components.

Musco’s warranty and maintenance programme covering parts and labour guarantees customers in the U.S., Puerto Rico, and Canada won’t have to touch their system or pay to maintain it for 25 years, with a 10-year warranty for customers outside those locations.

And Control-Link provides 24/7 monitoring and support for remote on/off controls, assuring reduced operating costs and that customers’ lights will be on only when activities are scheduled.

TLC for LED has been built on a foundation of research and innovation that goes back to 1977, when Musco introduced its first sports lighting solution.

In the years since, through the practical application of lab research to real-field settings, Musco has focused its efforts on redirecting previously wasted light back onto the playing surface to create a better playing experience free from glare and spill.

Rogers added:

When you step onto a field with Musco lights, it just looks better. We’re confident that when you see the performance of TLC for LED you’ll be impressed. It creates a special ballpark atmosphere, improves the experience for players and spectators, and because of its unmatched ability to preserve the darkness directly surrounding the field, neighbours will love it.

Musco has installed its LED solutions at recreational and major sports venues around the world. Some of these include LakePoint Sporting Community, AT&T Stadium, Emirates Stadium, Seminole County Sports Complex, Petco Park, several major college stadiums, and the 2016 Rio Summer Olympic Games.
