Waskaganish, Quebec - There will soon be more reasons to visit the Rupert River Sports Complex in Waskaganish, Quebec. This spring, the facility will be custom fitting and installing their first ice rink cover, converting the ice arena into a more versatile multi-purpose venue.
Home to the Cree Nation of Waskaganish, the community is perched at the mouth of the Rupert River on the southeast shore of James Bay. Formerly one of three original Hudson’s Bay Company posts on James Bay, local residents now gather at the complex for hockey and broomball games. Investing in an ice arena floor covering will allow the complex to seamlessly switch from on-ice sports to community events without removing the ice.
IceMate Lite is a 4’ x 8’ x ¾-inch-thick reinforced fiberglass composite sheet. The Rupert River arena will use these 4x8-foot solid sheets to protect the ice during events like trade shows, concerts, and other types of gatherings. Not only does this ice rink flooring diversify the facility’s use, but it can also provide an opportunity for additional revenue.
The non-porous, durable ice rink mats hold up to heavy equipment and pedestrian traffic, and are easy to install and remove thanks to bevelled edges on the base of each sheet.
