further description

 

The 56m x 26m competition rink is linked to 600m² of leisure ice complete with an elevated ice trail and a comprehensive lighting rig for discos and parties.

Secondary refrigerant of ethylene glycol 40% is passed through a network of polyethylene pipework encased in the reinforced concrete ice pad.

Recovered heat is used for snow melting in the ice pit and a range of other used within the building.

A single refrigeration system serves both ice rink areas.
