WHAT TYPE OF SURFACE CAN AN ICE RINK BE MOUNTED ON?
Any level surface which does not slope. Insulation is laid down first to prevent any heat or moisture exchange with the surface.
WHAT ARE THE TECHNICAL REQUIREMENTS?
* Access to 3 phase power close by with between 120 to 250 amps per phase necessary.
* Access to two water taps which have good water pressure available.
WHAT TEMPERATURE DOES AN ICE RINK RUN AT?
Between -5 to -10 degrees celsius
WHAT SIZE PORTABLE ICE RINK IS OPTIMAL FOR A REASONABLE NUMBER OF SKATERS?
30 metres by 15 metres allows approximately 120 skaters on the ice each session. Ice rinks however can be built to any size or shape depending on the client’s requirements.
HOW MUCH ELECTRICITY IS REQUIRED?
Between 120 and 250 amps per phase depending on the season and outside temperature.
HOW WILL I ACCESS HELP?
A 24 hr helpline will be available to get help with any technical issues.
WHO WILL LOOK AFTER THE ICE?
A technician will be on hand to monitor the chiller and the condition of the ice.
HOW IS THE ICE RESURFACED?
The ice is scraped by hand on a small rink and a layer of water is sprinkled on to smooth out any cuts or grooves in the ice. Skaters re-enter the ice when it freezes again.
HOW DO I GET A RETURN ON MY INVESTMENT?
You should check out local ice rink prices to make sure you don’t over-price. Extra income can be earned through selling socks, gloves, ice skates, drinks, food, snacks, coffee, hot chocolates and other extras. In our experience, 80% of customers go on to do snow tobogganing as well as ice skating which boosts cash flow.
We guarantee our ice rinks are suitable for conditions in Australia because they are developed in response to the hot temperatures in summer up to 42 degrees celsius.
After 26 years experience, we pride ourselves on being able to produce an ice skating surface in all kinds of structures no matter what the challenges, provided the basic requirements are met for sufficient power, a level site and protection from sun, wind and rain.
We only employ expert electricians and refrigeration technicians to carry out the work. If you are considering putting in an ice skating rink and/or a toboggan slide, our technicians will come to your site to check its suitability at no cost to you. You will receive a fully itemised quote to either hire or buy.
