What’s the difference between installing a conventional ice rink and a synthetic ice rink?

Synthetic ice rinks do not require any power system for refrigeration nor for its maintenance. This facilitates the installation, which simply requires placing and connecting the panels. In the case of with a conventional ice rink, the process is much more complicated.
In this case, for indoor rinks, an insulated, temperature regulated space with walls and ceiling is required. In cases where the rinks are outdoors, the power required and its usage increases even more.
Conventional ice rinks require an efficient refrigeration plant to maintain ideal temperatures, which will include a condenser, evaporator, humidifier, dry ventilation system {for indoor rinks} and a complex tubing system under the rink.
This means that, for an average 200m2 rink, 7-10 days for installation of a conventional ice rink and just 1 day for an Xtraice rink.
