Get started with the REALice® System
Installation takes between 1-2 hours. The system is installed next to the ice re-surfacers' water filling station.
All 10 ice arenas in the FortisBC pilot were converted during the ice season. This process will take about 7h.
The quality of the ice has been tremendous.
The ice is harder. Players skate faster, pass better and shoot better. It contributes to a better quality hockey game. All visiting coaches and players agree that it is one of the best surfaces in the country to play on. We are in operation 12 months a year and the savings are definitely significant.
The fruit's in the pudding - we're more efficient and not heating the water for the resurfacing.
Everyone is happy with the ice.
I think we have a winner!
The ice feels solid. It's got foundation.
So far ice has been great. It freezes instantly and the quality looks a lot better (much clearer than the untreated water)
"The Zamboni is spreading 120-140°F hot water onto the ice. This causes an instant 30 ton load for a 10-minute duration. The use of REALice eliminates such."
"The clarity is way better than advertised! I am VERY happy with the ice."
"We are thrilled with the ice."
