-- On this occasion, Dubai is the chosen location. The capital of the United Arab Emirates, known for its spectacular buildings, has opted for synthetic ice to allow its habitants and visitors the pleasure of ice skating throughout the year.
Dubai has a very hot and arid climate, with average annual temperatures reaching 28ºC. It’s for this reason that Xtraice’s ecological rinks have been welcomed with such great interest by businessmen specialised in the leisure and entertainment industries.
During the manufacturing process, Xtraice’s panels receive a UV ray treatment which allows the ice rinks to be used all year round, always maintaining an optimal temperature in conditions that may range from -80ºC and 100ºC.
This means a big saving in maintenance costs for a destination such as Dubai. Conventional ice rinks require elevated costs and have seasonal limitations as they are dependent on climactic conditions.
On the other hand, one of the largest sources of income in Dubai is luxury tourism. For this reason, the city requires the best quality of products and services to offer to its especially demanding visitors who expect luxury and great attention to detail. The exceptional quality of Xtraice’s product provides a form of entertainment for all sections of society, attracting everyone, including the wealthiest.
In late August, two luxury shopping centres in Dubai will invest in synthetic ice rinks of 160 and 240 m2 to entertain the public. These two rinks will liven up the shopping trips of visitors throughout the year.
Xtraice was created in 2003 and since then its reputations and products have won over more than 50 countries across 5 continents. A large list of prizes won by Xtraice confirms the quality of its patented technology which has revolutionised the ecological ice sector.
