Tongzhou District of Beijing will open its first removable ice rink at the stadium by the end of this January and citizens can have fun of ice and snow sports for free by then. The ice rink covers an area of 900 square meters and allows 30 people to play on the ice at the same time.
At present, the ground-levelling work has been completed at the construction site of the stadium and the assembling work will begin after the arrival of ice in a day or two.
Compared to traditional ice rinks, the removable ice rink can be installed and dismantled easily and quickly without any transformation to the site and damage to the ground, apart from a short construction period.
In addition, the rink can be comparable with a natural ice rink for it uses the ecological ice made by polymer nanomaterials. The ecological ice can minimize friction coefficient, reduce ice skates’ wear, cut the cost of cleaning and replacing ice and improve ice-skating experience.
