REAL ICE RINKS
Real ice is a great option for clients seeking long term rink venues, with significant budgets or sponsorship support with sufficient real estate to house the various equipment needed, and without limited time constraints for construction.
Real Ice rink installation packages feature custom ice rink designs, perimeter railings, skater lounge areas, supply of ice skates, maintenance, and refrigeration equipment.
There are location, space and power considerations required for real ice skating venues. Clients need to have access to an appropriate location, with sufficient space, to house both the rink, equipment as well as an area for dumping snow, supply 3 phase power, plus continuous water access for the full duration of the installation.
CHILL will customize any skating venue to suit each client's needs from design, to theme development, production, activation and program delivery.

What are the power requirements? 3 phase power, 460/480 volts (208/230 volt is acceptable). Auxiliary power generators are subject to local rates.
