At Sportkompaniet in Nässjö, the active lifestyle is key, with the love of exercise as its driving force. At Hide-a-lite, we were tasked with planning and lighting the facility. A well-lit exercise facility plays an important role for the experience and performance of staff and visitors alike. With our lighting design, the lighting set-up helps to create different zones within the facility, such as warm-up areas, strength training areas and relaxation spaces, with different lighting conditions and atmospheres to suit each area.
The exercise facility we are visiting is impressive. Even before we enter, our attention is drawn to the large glazed area along the facade. There we can see LEDstrip RX HDI IP20 fitted in Maxi U profile, which extends along a wall inside the windows. We understand that this is really something extra.
Inside Sportkompaniet, in front of the paddle tennis courts, there is a large, wooden tiered seating area. Along its handrail, Ledstrip 230V IP65 3000K has been installed in Art Low profile, which gives an effective, raking warm white light. Along the floor by the glass walls of the paddle tennis courts, the same LEDstrip has been installed in Profile T to mark the length of the courts – a very different and eye-catch piece of lighting design.
High above the two running tracks on either side of the paddle tennis courts, Indline IP23 XL industrial luminaires have been fitted in luminaire tracks. The narrow-beamed luminaires focus light on the running tracks without disturbing the paddle tennis courts. These luminaires are perfect fluorescent tube replacements; they replace T5 and T8 luminaires and have lower energy consumption and reduced maintenance requirements.
Solo Mini G2 luminaires have been installed in the corridor outside the offices on the upper floor. It uses reflector technology with a high-placed light spot, which gives a highly glare-free appearance. This luminaire blends well into the black ceiling and lights the floor surface from a height. Solo Mini G2 also acts as a perfect replacement for compact fluorescent tubes, making it a contemporary choice for projects large and small.
Last but not least, we have the exercise centre’s changing and sauna rooms. LEDstrip RX HDI IP20 in black Maxi U profiles has been installed in straight lines, creating contrast with the white ceiling. LED Heatline strip is used in the sauna, together with Heatspot G2 to create a warm white raking light with the character of incandescent lights. Heatspot G2 is a small, discreet luminaire that gives an atmospheric and comfortable lighting with fine light patterns on the horizontal wooden panels of the sauna.
Different activities are brought together in one place at Sportkompaniet. The lighting of every room and area is carefully planned for each area’s activities and spatial characteristics, which is one of the important factors for creating an environment that inspires movement and creativity.
