Leisure and Ice

With a track record spanning four decades, Star has designed over 80% of the ice rink facilities in the UK leisure industry. From curling rinks that helped prepare Team GB for a Bronze victory at Sochi 2014, to ice skating facilities where ice quality is critical, to the cutting-edge ‘Ice Factor’ climbing wall in Scotland, the largest indoor facility of its type in the world.

Star has provided sophisticated cooling solutions that help to maintain the low temperatures necessary for such venues. Not only are the end results perfect for leisure pursuits and welcoming the public to major events, they also reduce the operating costs of the premises and aid in contributing towards reducing carbon emissions.
