Antigonish, Nova Scotia - A new ice rink conversion cover delivered to St. Francis Xavier University in Antigonish, Nova Scotia this fall is allowing the school to turn one of their two rinks into a multi-use arena for special events.
The Charles V. Keating Centre, or the KMC, is an expansive athletics and conference centre located on the school’s campus. By installing IceMate™ ice rink flooring from Covermaster® in the auxiliary rink, the school will be able to increase the number of activities they can host in the space throughout the year without the inconvenience of removing the ice below.
The 5x8x1-inch panels fit so well on to the nearly 85-foot-wide rink that the custom cutting and fitting time was reduced. The KMC, or any indoor ice arena, can be transformed in as little as an hour with a staff of eight to 10.
An IceMate™ arena flooring conversion system insulates the ice, allowing arenas to host graduations, concerts, trade shows, and other revenue-generating events. The IceMate™ arena flooring delivered to the KMC has an R-Factor of 2.9, keeping the large ice surface well-protected, no matter the occasion.
