Lamp installation method


Large handball luminaires should be installed in strips on both sides of the arena and extend beyond the ends of the arena. The installation height should not be less than 12 meters.

Smaller venues, such as the handball gymnasium, can be fitted with luminaires on the ceiling frame, paying attention only to illuminance and angle. It should be noted that there are lux requirements for TV broadcasts.
