Ice thickness of 30mm – 35mm (1.25 inch) will be sufficient with the use of REALice® technology.
Optimal Ice Thickness
The thickness of the ice is one of the parameters that determine how much energy is consumed maintaining the ice, the thicker the ice the more energy you will consume.
An average-sized ice rink has an area of 1,800 m² which involves that every millimetre of ice equals 1,800 litres of water that needs to be cooled down.
The REALice® system provides harder and tougher ice which gives you the option to scrape off a few millimetres on your ice and therefore save a fair bit of energy consumption and reduce cost to operate your ice rink.
