Covered Ice Rink Structures: High Performance, Multi-Use Facilities

23 August 2019

A growing numbers of cities are opting for a covered ice rink structure. Many reasons explain this investment. First of all, it means no more snow to remove from the rink and less labour to maintain the ice. Moreover, since the structure protects the ice from sun rays and rain, it extends the ice season. It results in a more accessible ice rink and lower maintenance costs.

A covered ice rink structure can also be used for other purposes year round. Rain or shine, it can hold all types of events: shows, exhibitions, fairs, public markets.

Cities are not the only ones who can take advantage of a covered ice rink structure. For example, we built an awesome facility for residential purposes. SIM – Steel Buildings & Dry Kilns is proud to have been part in the realization of this amazing covered ice rink located in the Laurentians. For this project, our team built, provided, and installed the steel structure and the rooftop according to the client’s plans and specifications.
