Ice Painting

The ice sheet and its appearance is the main focal point in every arena or facility. Top Shelf Arena Services offers a professional, accurate and high quality ice paint job for your facility. The Top Shelf Arena team has installed ice sheets for clients and international events such as the Olympic Winter Games, the National Hockey League, nationally televised events and community facilities. Each install is performed with the same care and attention to detail.

Top Shelf Arena Services will apply your white, lines, circles, and any logos, either paint or lay-in, that you may require. We bring all the required equipment to ensure markings are done to the applicable rules and will provide sufficient seal coats of ice to protect our work and allow you to finish ice building. Complete installations are also available.

Game Day Study

A Game Day Study can be completed for your facility. Using a detailed facility and operations checklist, Top Shelf Arena Services will analyze operational information and work with building staff in assisting managers to ensure their facilities are operating at a high standard.

The Game Day Study will determine what your building looks like on a typical game day. This would include analysis of the daily ice rentals throughout the day, up to the “warm-up” and during the game.

The Game Day study will be key in determining the quality of building conditions, building operations and game day ice conditions.
