If the ice rink is to be placed on any surface other than a hard standing surface, you would need to contact a local Marquee company and hire out a sub flooring, the size will depend on the size of your rink you are hiring plus an extra 1m x 4m, this way we can make sure the rink is secure and does not sink an avoids any lift that will cause concern for Health and Safety

Placement area for the rink

The area will need to be flat, not sloping and free from debris. We will also need good access for our truck to drive close as possible due to the rink boards are very heavy.

Can the ice rink go on a grassed area?

If the rink is to be placed on a grassed area a sub flooring surface will be required. We can supply this for an extra charge. We can give more advice on this at the time of booking. Also refer to note above re flat surface.
