Indoor ice rink facilities are designed to bring family fun indoors for year around comfort and activities. There are several unseen hazards that are inherent in the design of these facilities. Ammonia is the typical coolant used for the ice surface and if a leak occurs is could be toxic and perhaps deadly to guests or maintenance personal. The equipment used to maintain the ice, resurfacers and edgers, are typically powered by propane, natural gas and sometimes diesel fuel. This equipment will give off toxic gases in the form of carbon monoxide CO and Nitrogen Dioxide NO2 in the arena area and the vehicle parking garage.
