LED Floodlighting Solution for Primary School Sports Field

BEKA Schréder has supplied the LED floodlight retrofit solution for the multi-purpose Astro field and Tennis Courts at the De Hoop Primary School in Somerset West, Western Cape Province.

De Hoop Primary School was established in 1970 and is situated between the magnificent Hottentots Holland Mountains and the beautiful Atlantic Ocean and False Bay. Their multi-purpose Astro can be used for Rugby, Soccer, Hockey or Cricket and as an Athletics track. Furthermore, their Tennis Courts can also be used for Netball.

Looking to reduce their power consumption and maintenance costs, the school decided to upgrade their sports field lighting from old traditional high-intensity discharge lamps to LED technology.

BEKA Schréder is proud to have supplied the LED floodlight solution for this project. The OMNIBLAST-E were the floodlights of choice due to their low glare, very good performance and the fact that they had a similar weight to the old luminaires, thus no pole replacement was necessary.

The OMNIBLAST-2-E MIDI floodlight illuminates the multi-purpose Astro field, whilst the smaller version, the OMNBLAST-1-E MIDI, was chosen for the Tennis Courts.

OMNIBLAST-E modular LED floodlighting solution

The South-African manufactured OMNIBLAST-E is the ideal tool for sports venues and other very large area applications that require a lighting solution with the highest efficiency and flexibility to adapt to the different lighting needs.

Available in a MIDI and MAXI variant, this LED solution offers an alternative with proven benefits for traditional fixtures fitted with 250W to 2000W HID lamps. A modular concept of optical units means that 1, 2 or 3 modules can be mounted on a similar bracket arrangement to offer the utmost versatility, providing light distributions and lumen packages perfectly adapted to the specifications of the area to be lit.


BEKA Schréder develops and manufactures energy-efficient LED lighting products in South Africa, designed and suitable for local conditions.

We are very proud to be associated with De Hoop Primary School and EMG Group in providing a successful LED lighting solution for this project.
