Arena Lighting in South Jersey
Arena lighting, both indoor and outdoor, can be challenging. Proper light levels are very important for the safety of the horse and rider. Riders jumping will require higher light levels toward the inner part of the ring, while dressage riders will require even lighting across the entire ring, paying special attention to the outer corners of the arena. Choosing the proper fixtures is also important. We can guide the client in making the proper selection for their South Jersey arena lighting.
Barn Lighting in South Jersey
Proper lighting is important for your South Jersey barn. The light fixtures installed in barns must be vapor tight and dust resistant. Bott Electric offers different mounting methods by using custom mounting brackets which are fabricated at our location.
Stall Lighting in South Jersey
If you have been visiting other South Jersey barns, you would agree that barn stalls, wash stalls and grooming stalls must have the best lighting available. This is where we can help. Proper mounting and choice of the correct lighting fixture can make the difference. Wash stall heaters are a nice added bonus in the winter, and Bott Electric offers several choices of heaters that meet the National Electrical Code.
Stall Fans in South Jersey
Stall fans are one of the #1 items being installed improperly in South Jersey barns. It is important to install a fan with a sealed motor to prevent dust from entering the fan motor and causing a fire. Bott Electric installs sealed motor fans with three speeds, mounted with our own custom designed brackets which keep the fans away from the horse to prevent injury.
Improper Fan Installation
This photo illustrates both the wrong fan for a horse setting and the improper installation of a box fan installed on the stall grills. If you look closely at the photo, you will see an extension cord powering the fan. This installation is dangerous; electrocution can occur if the horse chews the cord. In addition, the fan is an open motor fan, which is a fire hazard. Don't make this mistake in your South Jersey barn!
