Around 500 CLF Lighting fixtures were deployed during De Coolste Baan van Nederland, which was held in the Olympic Stadium of Amsterdam, built for the 1928 Olympic Games.
Center of attention was the 400m long speed skating track that was used for the ISU World Allround Speed Skating Championships 2018 during the last weekend of the event.
In cooperation with production company For Live, Lighting Designer Henk-Jan van Beek (Light-H-Art) chose different CLF Lighting fixtures to illuminate the speed skating track and all the areas around it. With 350 pieces, the CLF Lighting Yara LEDPAR was everywhere. The majority of them illuminated all the flags in the surrounding area. This outdoor lighting essential was used because of the impressive output and intense colours.
Ruud van den Berg, the owner of For Live, commented: “We have seriously challenged the fixtures. The fixtures were deployed 24/7 with temperatures below zero for a significant period but the fixtures didn’t flinch. We have a large rental stock of multiple CLF fixtures and we will continue to expand it.”
150 CLF Lighting Quadcolor RGBW LED pars illuminated an extra skating track from a closer distance. Because of the 30° beam angle, they were very suitable for this job. The CLF Lighting Ares LEDwashes took care of the grandstands and the skating track in the centre area. Besides all the outdoor fixtures, the CLF LEDwash RGBW took care of the entrance hall.
