Stage Electrics at the Ski Show
14 November 2008
UK - Stage Electrics supplied its first ice rink of the season to the annual Metro Ski & Snowboard Show, recently held in Olympia, London. Stage Electrics worked with DMG World Media to provide their client, Trespass (suppliers of outdoor clothing), who were exhibitors at the show, with a large 240sq.m ice rink. The rink was divided into two smaller rinks to allow one for skating and one with two curling lanes.
The ice rink including all pipe work, 200KW of chilling equipment and barriers, was installed in just three days. In addition, the Trespass sponsor logos and curling targets were painted using a soluble paint and frozen into the ice.
John Burgess, account manager at Stage Electrics commented: "Olympia is a difficult venue to install an ice rink in, because of the lack of available drainage for the ice and the issue of having very little control over the ambient temperature. However, we managed to work through these issues and delivered an ice rink which generated positive feedback, not only from visitors, but from our client."
