Unable to come and "buy ice rink," as building materials. Making boards rink, it may take 1-2 months, the same time it is necessary to make the field itself rink – "ice-mat" (the tubes that provide a field of frozen water on the rink). When ordering in Canada or the U.S., a new ice machinery manufacturing Olympia or a world leader as a Zamboni , will have to wait 4-6 months. This is due to the fact that such machines mark Zamboni will only be collected under the order, issued in the year just a few hundred machines and assembly occurs manually. The cost of a new ice machine in Europe ranges from $ 100,000-200,000, and more.
A good alternative is to purchase a used car and held a pre-training. This ice machine cost $ 30-50 thousand, and even if the car 15-20 years, it easily lasts the same amount, providing high-quality ice in your ice rink. Be sure to ask your supplier about the warranty and after sales service that especially important for Salvage equipment. In Canada and the United States there are about 3000-5000 rinks and arenas. About 70% of ice machines in the world – this car brand Zamboni.
Zamboni ice machines were the first and remains one of the best. In the off-season, you can pick up appropriate version of the ice machine, brand Olympia or Zamboni. Also in the off-season (May-September), can be beneficial to buy the whole set of used equipment, but a request to arrange for at least 3-5 months before project, ie in late spring, early summer. When choosing a provider, of course, need to take account of the experience, but not only. Very often, large companies-suppliers of equipment for rinks, forced to hold large staff of technicians and staff, which is automatically reflected in the cost of equipment. As a rule, the same equipment in the smaller, but does not mean that less experienced providers would cost 1.5-2 times cheaper.
