its Senior Management and Installation Engineers have been involved in Design. Many Leisure Ice Rinks are designed and built to create irregular shapes and features.E. Barriers: (Dasher Boards) Ice Rinks are designed for many uses including: • Leisure Skating • Formal Ice Dance & Figure Skating • Ice Hockey • Speed Skating – Short Track • Curling • Multi Purpose Usage Ice Pad Sizes: • • International Size Olympic Size 56m x 26m x 7m Radius 60m x 30m x 7m Radius The above Pad sizes are aimed at the formal sport requirements.E.Ice Rinks – Technology Flex leisure systems – the complete fit – out package Introduction: Leisure Engineering Projects Limited. is the leading UK manufacturer and installer of ice rink fit out equipment. Not all Ice Rink Pads are required to be formal or of the stated size.P. L. Energy: Ice Rinks are notorious users of electrical energy. Manufacture and Fitting out Ice Rink Equipment for nearly 35 years. any systems available to reduce these costs are a major advantage (Barrier Insulation) & (Low ‘E’ Ceiling). Not only do we design and manufacture. 2 . our wealth of in-depth experience means we act in many cases as consultants on overall schemes.P. The need to be able to change the rink from ice to other activities quickly often requires the barrier to be easily demountable. L. Multi Purpose Ice Rinks Often require the floor on the warm side and cold side to be the same level – requiring the barrier to retain the ice.
