Superior Solutions for
Arenas & Ice Rinks

Effective chemical solutions for arena building maintenance

Caring for Arenas is Hard Work

Whether you’re managing an arena that hosts professional sports teams and sold-out concerts or tryouts for the bantam hockey team, your management is important. The cooling and heating systems must stay running at all times, and do so using as little water and energy as possible. As an added challenge, the age of some systems requires special care and consideration to run efficiently for as long as possible.

It's More Than Just Chemistry

You need a chemical partner who can find the right solution

Maintaining heating and cooling systems in arenas and ice rinks is a full-time job. It takes careful calculation to ensure that these systems perform, despite their age or history, and with efficient use of water and power. We’re here to help. At Guardian, we understand the need for specialized chemistry, the pressures you face for reducing budget, and that systems old and new have different requirements.

Water Treatment

Water systems are critical to maintaining arenas and ice rinks. They need to perform in all conditions while minimizing utility costs. Guardian delivers the three pillars required for successful water treatment: industry-leading chemistry, responsive and knowledgeable service, and the holistic processes to ensure your systems perform at the lowest possible operating cost. This approach is grounded in decades of experience and supported by a data-driven process, giving operations and leadership the peace of mind they deserve. And we do this with health and safety as our top priority—that means everything from providing the proper training to handle the products to water management plans ensuring legionella does not cause an issue for your institution. We can help by providing chemistry that is designed to get the most out of your systems, and the service support needed to keep them working as long as possible.

While the best water systems will be perfectly balanced, we understand that sometimes not everything goes as planned. That is why we also have a suite of solutions such as defoamers, descalers and odour controllers to help get your system back on track and operating at peak performance.

Sanitizing & Disinfecting

We all want to make sure that athletes, coaches and attendees can use your facility safely. Both visible and invisible bacteria, fungi, and other contaminants can linger for hours or days in the right environment. Guardian's wide variety of solutions include several registered with Health Canada, and all our hard surface cleaners, sanitizers, and disinfectants are made to ensure the cleanliness of contaminated surfaces.

The best water systems will be perfectly balanced to minimize scale issues. However, once scale develops, it can impact the efficacy of your boilers, closed-loop water systems and fire water systems. That's why we have created a range of effective descaling solutions that can help restore your system to its peak performance. By treating this issue as soon as it's noticed, you can prevent further negative impacts on your systems and equipment. But descaling an old system comes with its own unique challenges—a system should not be worse off after descaling than it wasn’t before. We have the systems and people to properly treat the issue and optimize your system's performance, no matter what condition it's in.
