Ice Arenas

Considerations

  • Keeping spectators comfortable in the grandstands
  • Zone the heaters so that only the occupied portion of seating is heated
  • Side shields can be used to avoid infrared from hitting the ice surface
  • Zamboni rooms need to be free of snow year round

Benefits

  • More cost effective than conventional heaters
  • Parabolic aluminum reflectors – most efficient in the industry
  • Direct heat only where it is needed, reducing energy costs.
