Here are 2 documents to explain how a Low E Ceiling Works in an Arena or Curling Rink
"By improving facilities such as the Craik arena, we are helping to boost economic activity and maintain a high quality of life for Canadians".
Federal funding of $34,447 will help the Town install a suspended insulated ceiling and energy-efficient lighting over the arena’s ice surface. The upgrades will improve visibility for spectators, as well as on the ice, and will reduce the arena’s operating costs.
“Currently, the Craik Memorial Rink is very dark inside” said Craik Rink Board President Jason Nolting. “The new suspended ceiling will help brighten the facility and provide an estimated 20 per cent in energy savings. The new lighting will also help the Town save an estimated additional 15 per cent. Thanks to the funding, this means a reduction in operating costs of approximately $5,000 annually for the rink.”
"The Harper Government’s investment of $42,170 will go towards energy upgrades to the arena, which will include higher efficiency lighting and the installation of new reflective foil insulation to the ceiling over the ice surface. The benefit of this insulation is twofold: it reflects light back to the ice, making the arena brighter, and reduces heat fluctuations between the ceiling and the ice surface. Maintaining more consistent temperatures will create a harder, faster surface for skaters and significantly reduce cooling costs, thereby reducing operating expenses." The arena’s out-dated sound system will also be replaced as part of this project.
"We are very pleased with the initiative to upgrade the arena facility,” said St. Walburg Mayor Tony Leeson. "We support all initiatives that will increase the efficiency and extend the life of community facilities and programs for our residents".
The initiative began with the Arena Board, which is part of the St. Walburg and District Recreation Board. “It is nice to see the Government of Canada help out with small town community facilities such as the St. Walburg Arena,” said Rec Board President Glenn Hemmelgarn. “Being in a small town, the challenge is ever increasing to not only keep these facilities running by covering the normal operating costs but to also be able to keep up with the capital expenditures that are required as well. This money will go a long way in helping keep this facility running in a cost efficient manner as well as making it a better facility to enjoy the activities that take place in it.”
