Chill the ice rink and keep the skaters warm
Runwild Events wanted to create a real-life outdoor skating experience. Logistically there were a few obstacles: the ice-rink was large but the space for equipment was small, there were installation weight limitations, and they needed enough power to light up a Christmas-worth of fairy lights, power a sound system and warm the bar for after-skate festivities.
Project fact file
To chill the rink and heat the bar
Ice rink operational
All-in-one heat pump chillers heat and chill
We saved on space and load weight by using an all-in-one system that supplied both the heating and chilling. Four of the units were used to ice the rink and the fifth supplied internal heating for the bar area and skate exchange areas. The heating was also used to melt the area during melt down. The fairy lights and PA system were powered by one of our tailored packages.

Our team of experts are market leaders in chilling ice rinks.
Smooth-as-ice entertainment all winter
Our technical team overcame all the logistical difficulties and limitations of the ice rink to deliver a magical, winter-wonderland experience. The chiller kept the ice firm and slush-free from October through to February. They also kept the entertainment areas warm and dry. Runwild’s reputation was enhanced by creating a drawcard attraction.
