THE BENEFITS OF ARTIFICIAL ICE:

Water savings
Reduction of energy consumption
Reduced CO2 emissions
Advanced technology
Safety when walking on ice
Use of normal skates

  • Exceptional environmental savings

    The innovative skating surface contributes to the conservation of water resources by saving around 15,000 litres of water. Without the need for electricity to maintain a cool temperature, a synthetic ice rink reduces energy consumption equivalent to the needs of around 290 average households per month.

  • Reducing carbon footprint

    By using sustainable synthetic ice, you contribute to reducing
    CO2 emissions by around 7.7 tonnes, which is a big step towards a greener environment.

  • Innovation and safety

    Synthetic ice is made from high-quality materials that provide an excellent skating experience, with minimal friction and excellent grip. This type of ice is less slippery for normal walking compared to natural ice,
    which increases safety for visitors, especially children and the elderly. You can skate on synthetic ice with normal skates, which makes for a smooth and enjoyable skating experience.
