Magna Centre

Project Details

Lighting Design/Specifier:  Mulvey & Banani
Manufacturers:  AccuLite,  Insight Lighting,  Juno Lightning Group
Photography:  Salex

The Magna Centre is the largest state-of-the-art recreation complex in Newmarket, Ontario and is one of the most significant and exciting initiatives in the town’s history.

The centre features one Olympic-sized and three NHL-sized arenas, two swimming pools, a full-sized gymnasium, a walking track and three multi-purpose rooms. Salex was involved in the Magna Centre’s lighting, using products from Insight Lighting, Juno and AccuLite. Most notably are Insight’s Illusions light pipes used over the swimming pools. Given the difficulty of providing maintenance to lights directly over the pool, Illusions are tubes reaching from one end of the pool to the other, with a light source at one end of the tube for easy maintenance.
