Entrance to a sports arena

Arenas are major recreational sports facilities and must be capable of enduring everyday wear and tear. They are designed to host a variety of sports and events including hockey, figure skating, curling, ringette, and public free skating. All these skate blades need to be protected when circulating throughout the establishment.

Advantage Sport offers products that are specifically designed to answer the needs of any sports facility. For arenas, however, rubber surfacing products are the perfect solution due to their durability in extreme environments and their resistance to the frequent passage of ice skates. In addition to their high resistance to skate blades, they also provide excellent adhesion to prevent slipping as rubber is a durable and safe surface.

Most arena spaces or rooms are ideal locations for the products we offer:

  • Corridors
  • Rink perimeter
  • Players changing rooms
  • Players bench
  • Referee dressing rooms
  • Pro-shop
  • Main entrance
  • Shared areas

In addition to this floorings great practicality, it is also possible to create custom designs by selecting multiple colours of the same-thickness surfacing products. Attractive colours and patterns are available to match any design requirement. Arrange the products and colours for a design that is limited only by your imagination. Create a personalised logo for your team within the surface through the use of a specialised process of water jet cutting to allow for a uniform look. It not only looks professional, the image is also just as durable as the flooring, as a painted logo would tend to fade away over time.

There are a number of advantages provided by rubber flooring that illustrate its effectiveness for arena environments:


Rubber’s high degree of abrasion resistance is ideal for heavy usage in high traffic areas over time. It is difficult to gouge, scuff, or scratch, providing tremendous longevity.


Resistant to high impact loads and foot traffic, including ice skates, day after day and for long periods of time.


Rubber ensures anti-slip properties to prevent accidents, especially in arena conditions which can typically be wet and slippery.


With all the ice that gets dragged onto the flooring outside the actual ice rink, the surface must be impervious to water.

Reduced Sound Transmision

The natural elasticity of rubber helps to reduce impact sound as the material has high sound absorption.

Easy Maintenance

Arenas maintain very busy environments and need a surface that is low maintenance. Rubber surfaces only require simple cleaning with a mild PH neutral soap and rinsing. Regular cleaning can be accomplished with a wet or microfiber mop and an autoscrubber can be used for large areas. This surface does not require any finish. A regular maintenance regimen is all that is needed to care for a rubber flooring.

All these features are the reason rubber covering is the number one choice of arena developers. Contact our expert sales consultants to discuss your project, our products and the installation.
