At the fourth US installation 2021 of German based ISS Ice, Sports & Solar you can see where the way for Curling in the US is currently going. After the Men‘s Olympic Gold in 2018, more and more clubs build their own facility. The driving force is often the seemingly hopeless situation in which many clubs find themselves as guests in an ice rink with severely limited ice time. Sustainable development and membership growth is not possible here in competition with hockey, figure and public skating.
But things are happening. Whether as a „warehouse conver-sion“ in a storage facility or new construction as seen here with six sheets in Denver. As ice technology partner of USA Curling, the World Curling Tour and CurlingZone, ISS has become the first contact in the US when ice quality and sustainability are required.
In addition to many hockey and curling projects in the past such as IIHF and WCF World Championships, ISS also supplies their ICEGRID® technology for the Ice Cube, the Beijing 2022 Curling Olympic arena as already for the first test ice surface of the Milano Cortina 2026 Olympics in the Arena Civica in Milan.
As a second generation family business with three branches and as a real pioneer in the ice rink industry, ISS is the partner when quality is what is asked for. For the past five years, ISS has been working 100 % climate-neutral according to the Gold Standard and also offers its ice rink systems climate-neutral.
