Sports hall ball test

Luminaires for use in sport facilities and multipurpose halls should be impact resistant.

Several of our products have the ball test approval in accordance with the German DIN 57710-13 regulation. This standard is concerned with the impact resistance of luminaires for indoor sports facilities. It requires that a luminaire struck by a ball must withstand any damage that could cause luminaire parts to fall to the ground.

To pass the standard test, a luminaire needs to withstand 36 shots from three directions. The maximum impact velocity is 60 km/hour and the ball is a calibrated hand ball. The product must be functioning after the test without any loose or broken parts falling down, and without change in IP rating.
