Ice Sheet Maintenance

How to have a Perfect Ice

How is the ice sheet surface maintained?

  • WHY DOES IT NEED MAINTENANCE? - Skating produces snow with the friction of the skates. Tiny layers accumulate until they reach centimeters thick. This snow hinders skating and blurs the surface of the ice. Therefore, there are variety of machinery, from very complex to the simplest and cheapest, but the objective remains always the same: remove snow and cover the scratches produced by the skates by a very thin layer of water at temperatures higher than 80ºC so that the surface is even, smooth and without stripes. and most importantly, they do not allow to grow the ice sheet, which saves the work of the cold machinery.
  • PROFESSIONAL ICE RINKS - For these cases, the ideal solution is to have a straightening machine, or "resurfacer", designed for large rinks, greater than 1500 m2.
    With electric and diesel models, the latter are only used on outside ice rinks.
  • MEDIUM AND LARGE ICE RINKS - With dimensions greater than 600 m2 and up to 1500 m2, there are smaller and versatile resurfacers, with the ability to accumulate the snow produced by skating in a single pass. In general they also come with electric motor batteries, but for outdoor, with diesel engines.
  • SMALL ICE RINKS - From 300 to 600 m2, there is small and versatile machinery, very maneuverable, which does an excellent job in a matter of minutes.
  • VERY SMALL RINKS - For ice rinks less than 300 m2, the same work that a resurfacer does, can be done manually: the snow is removed with special blades, and then a very thin water is made to cover the scratches produced by the skates.
  • WATCH OUT! - The edges of the ice rink should be cleaned with great care, because a bad job produces steps between the ice and the barriers, degrading the visual and detracting your ice rink.
    For these cases, there are also small machines that clean and mill the ice at the edges, leaving them perfect.
  • Very N'Ice works directly with the manufacturer in Italy - ENGO - which designs and produces high quality and affordable prices for all rink sizes.

MANUAL MAINTENANCE: On ice rinks of small sizes (less than 400 m2) the maintenance of the ice can be done manually, with two people in about 15 minutes.
With special heavy blades and with great edge, the snow is collected, then it is removed from the surface of the track, and then simply watered with a thin layer of water, so as not to thicken the thickness of the ice.
The maintenance staff is trained for these tasks, and they really do it quickly and efficiently. 
For these ice rinks, Very N'Ice provides all the necessary elements for the manual maintenance of the ice sheet.
