An interesting development in the dart lighting world!

 Monday 19th December 2016 FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

World Darts Federation Approve First Lighting System in Partnership with Target Darts The Vision 360 lighting system by Target Darts has been approved by the World Darts Federation for use across all WDF competitive events.

As the approved lighting system for World Dart Federation events, across its 69 member countries, this is the first endorsement of its kind for equipment other than the dart board. The approval will ensure lighting consistency throughout more than 10,000 events held annually across the world.

Bill Hatter, President of the World Darts Federation, explained, “The WDF has tested and reviewed the Target Vision 360 lighting system. After reviewing the report on the rigorous testing of the system it was a unanimous decision that the WDF would proudly endorse this product and look forward to a continued partnership with Target Darts. It’s apparent that the lighting system will enhance any level of play by the simple fact it provides a clear and consistent illumination of the dart board to players and score keepers.” Target’s Vision 360 launched in November 2015 and uses 125 individual LED lights to provide 360 degree vision and remove shadows from the dartboard. Constructed from solid steel and shaped to angle light directly onto the dartboard, any glare or distraction is averted from the players’ eyes.

The Titan dartboard locking bracket securely locks the dart board to the wall with adjustable feet to allow for uneven surfaces and easy dartboard rotation. Bill continued, “We feel that this product will complement any dart board environment whether it be recreational or competitive in nature.” James Tattersall, International Sales Manager at Target Darts, said, “We are really excited to be providing world-class lighting for darts players across the world.

The success of the Vision 360, and the recognition it has garnered as a world-class lighting system, is incredible. It is this quality that has been recognised by the WDF and we are extremely proud to be partnering with them to improve consistency of light in the game for their community of more than 500,000 players.”

The approval is now live so all organisations playing within the World Darts Federation can use the Vision 360 in play with immediate effect.
