Over deze norm
1.1 The intent of this guide is to provide consistent considerations for the design, construction, and retrofitting of ice skating and ice hockey playing facilities. It is intended to establish guidelines that will provide a level of functionality for recreational skating, conformity for the purpose of competition and reduce potential hazards to skaters, players, game officials, spectators, and employees.
1.2 This guide should be taken into consideration by owners/operators, architects, planners, engineers, equipment manufacturers, construction companies, construction contractors, and appropriate inspectors who may be involved in the design and construction of new ice skating/hockey playing facilities. Whenever possible, environmental sustainability and energy efficiency should be taken into consideration in the planning and design of facilities. This guide applies only to the construction and development of new ice skating/hockey playing facilities. Portions, however, may be useful for renovation projects, such as, replacing worn out dasherboards.
1.3 Every arena is unique in material, architecture, and engineering, and therefore will require technical review. This guide is not meant to provide an architectural prototype, but is a guide to set forth measures for the development of safer ice arena venues.
