footings for stadium lighting

Pile Footings

A pile footing is a long cylinder of a strong material such as concrete that is pushed or poured into the ground to act as a steady support for structures built on top of it.

Pad Footings

Where ground conditions dictate, (because of water levels, soil type or rock), Pad Footings are utilised, which are a rectangular concrete shape and are wide rather than deep.

Pole Height

Guidelines for Pole Height and Location are given in the Australian Standard (AS2560.2.3). Minimum pole heights depend on whether a side pole or corner pole design is being used. The height depends on the distance from centre of the pitch to the base of the pole location.

Layout and Pole Locations

The recommended zones for the location of floodlight poles are available in the Australian Standard (AS 2560.2.3). As an example, for football, the standard identifies placements for corner and side pole designs with four and six pole designs.
