Hispec Case Studies


Leeds, UK

White Rose Cheer specialise in acrobatic cheerleading routines and are a prominent fixture on both the national and international competition circuits. As a team, they have recently competed in Chicago, USA and have over 200 active members that train in their brand new, purpose-built facility. When they took over what was essentially a blank canvas, they knew that the best way to ensure a rise in new members would be the first impressions that this gym gave upon entry.

White Rose approached us for a full lighting design and supply with their primary goal being to create a fresh and inclusive environment that complimented their club colours of black and white.

Our lighting design team drew up a scheme which specified 25 x Hispec 150w LED high bays (HSLEDHB150) that, with a 120 degree beam angle, would achieve an optimal spread of light without distracting the cheerleaders who perform complex throws and lifts daily. According to recommendations from British Gymnastics, the ideal lux level for competition is between 550lx and 700lx so we based our design off achieving 650lx to ensure clarity for the athletes and casual members alike.

Not only did we achieve and exceed the goals set out by White Rose Cheer but our client will also receive the cost saving benefits and low maintenance factors that comes with LED lighting. Installed by Stuart Broadhead Electrical, via a local wholesale stockist, White Rose Cheer are extremely happy with the results and hope to continue their growth for years to come.
