World-Class Sports Lighting & Lighting Control Solutions

Gerard Lighting works directly with leading sporting codes to deliver illumination that benefits both players and spectators.


Configure a Sports lighting solution


Sports lighting that is up to standard for play, for broadcast

Consider the various requirements that one code alone places upon its illumination needs and you’ll understand why it is important to choose a lighting solutions provider whose capabilities stretch beyond the supply of products to include expertise in lighting schema design, comprehension of the code’s requirements and ability to project manage the installation and its configuration.

Rugby Union, one of the sports most favoured by Australian sportspeople and spectators, has a strict lighting standard for all aspects of play that in turn complies with The Australian Standard - Sports Lighting (AS 2560.2.3-2007) Part 2.3. This standard has specific applications - Lighting for football (all codes) prepared by the Standards Australia Committee contains recommendations and requirements (the requirements refer to methods of assessment and measurement and levels of performance) specific to the lighting of outdoor football grounds for all codes commonly played in Australia.



Australians love their sport. Gerard Lighting has been providing sports lighting solutions for more than 50 years.

Indoors, outdoors, rectangular field, court or oval, cycle path, skate park or BMX track, you’ll find Gerard Lighting has been involved in delivering solutions for councils, sporting authorities and government to technical specification, to illumination standard and to budget.
