Ice Skating Dome Ensures Your Maximum Ice-Sports Fun

An ice skating dome makes it possible for ice sports training all year round. This is a new technology for building ice and snow sports stadiums through more cost-effective methods.

Ice skating domes are popular for training nowadays because they are easier and faster to assemble and disassemble. This makes it possible to meet the rising demands of sports.

Why Ice Skating Domes?

For those who are not familiar with ice skating domes, this article aims to clear your doubts.

For a better understanding, let’s take a look at Metaspace’s ice skating dome case in Nangang District, Harbin, China. This is a state-of-the-art ice skating dome equipped with everything needed to make training more convenient and fun.

The ice sports center is decorated with blue plastic floors and white and green walls. And when you enter the gate door, you meet the main sports space and supporting facilities such as lounges, sharpening rooms which are used for skating shoes, etc.

Furthermore, the ice sports center is equipped with large screens and audio equipment to create a more entertaining atmosphere for not only athletes but also kids. Here are some of the features of this amazing ice sports center:

1. Year-round training

Ice skating requires special temperatures, which is why most traditional ice sport centers only work during winter. That means you will have to wait for a long time before resuming any training.

The ice skating dome built by Metaspace does not require any special season. It is an air dome structure of constant temperature and humidity. The temperature difference of the whole place does not exceed 0.3 degree Celsius, making it ideal for any training session.

According to Mr. Wang, a parent to one of the students at Xiangjiang Park Ice Sports Center, Harbin, China, the six-year-old can now enjoy three to four classes every week. And they can choose more places for classes, and it’s more convenient ever since this new ice sports center is built.

2. Better ice skating experience

The ice skating dome offers the perfect environment, complete facilities, and a strong atmosphere for modern ice and winter sports. The facility is constructed with an air membrane structure which equips a smart control system that can perfectly control the indoor temperature.

Air is inflated into the membrane, and the surface is supported using air pressure. The new technology used in the center, compared to the traditional ethylene glycol intercooling methods, can reduce more than 60% of the sports dome cost.

3. Less environmental burden

The traditional ice sports stadiums are high cost, with high energy consumption, and hard to maintain. But an ice sports dome uses renewable materials and offers low energy consumption. The direct-cooling and the ice-making system follow the standards of ice skating dome facilities in accordance with the relevant international and domestic standards.

As stated above, this method can reduce up to 60% energy consumption, and its temperature difference never exceeds 0.3 degrees. It’s the most eco-friendly solution on the market today.

The Ice-sports Domes of Metaspace

Metaspace’s sports domes are the pioneer facilities in this industry. By this time, there are already ten ice sports centers in the region, and Metaspace aims to expand more across the country.



The Air Dome Ice Sports Center selected Metaspace as the ice rink supplier for the Olympic Winter Games Beijing 2022 to deliver leading domestic equipment. This reflects the full recognition of air dome solutions as the future of ice-sports development in the world. An ice skating dome ensures maximum experience, safety, and positive environmental impact.
