Best light for professional athletes

THW Kiel has entered into a lighting partnership with LEDVANCE to successfully harmonize innovative lighting technologies with the requirements of top class sports. THW Kiel is Germany‘s leading team in the international sport of professional handball. The focus of daily activities is therefore on the performance and well-being of the whole handball team. One, out of many factors, is the lighting of the training center and office building of the handball club in Altenholz. Innovative lighting solutions are therefore used to increase the lighting quality in the video room of the training center and in the meeting room of the administration building, among other rooms, and to implement a lighting profile that can be flexibly adapted to individual needs. „Successful professional sports require optimal conditions - in competitions as well as in everyday life. Every detail counts, for example also the lighting. That's why we are very pleased to have found a strong partner for future-oriented lighting solutions in LEDVANCE,“ explains Viktor Szilagyi, Managing Director THW Kiel why they entered into a partnership with LEDVANCE.
The BIOLUX system automatically adjusts the lighting in the pre-set "NATURAL" light profile to the course of daylight and also allows trainers and players to use rotary control unit switches to adjust the lighting individually and dynamically to the respective lighting requirements in the room.

The PANEL luminaires of the BIOLUX system from LEDVANCE provide significantly improved brightness and lighting quality and the individually adjustable lighting profiles ensure a perfect lighting environment at all times. For example, the "FOCUS" light profile promotes the concentration of players on the next opponent during tactics meetings in the video room, while the "RELAX" light profile in the meeting room ensures a relaxed atmosphere at events or during breaks between training sessions. An additional advantage of the BIOLUX HCL system is that it is easy to install and simple and user friendly to operate.

 To this purpose of strong partnership, LEDVANCE has installed the BIOLUX HCL system in selected rooms of the training center and the office building of THW Kiel in Altenholz as a first step. However, Human Centric Lighting does not only increase the quality of light. The available different lighting profiles also make it possible to create a lighting scenario that is perfectly adapted to the respective occasion.

With offices in more than 50 countries and business activities in more than 140 countries, LEDVANCE is one of the world's leading general lighting providers for professional users and end consumers. Having emerged from the general lighting business of OSRAM GmbH, LEDVANCE offers a wide-ranging assortment of LED luminaires for a broad spectrum of application areas, intelligent lighting products for Smart Homes and Buildings, one of the largest LED lamps portfolios in the industry, traditional light sources, electronic components and light management systems. Based on an agreement with OSRAM, LEDVANCE will continue to use the trusted OSRAM brand for many of its products (SYLVANIA for the USA and Canada). Further information can be found at
