Ice hockey is not only one of the fastest but also one of the most exciting team sports in the world. The speed of the game unleashes enormous forces. In a bodycheck, it is not unusual for the players to crash into the board at more than 50 km/h. The explosive accelerations and sudden stops on razor-sharp ice hockey blades would be impossible without an extremely hard-wearing ice surface. AST offers you custom-built ice hockey rinks of the highest quality.
With mobile solutions, you can turn a football stadium into an ice hockey arena! For the EBEL Winter Classics, held every year in Austria, and the DEL Winter Games in Germany, soccer venues like “Auf Schalke” are converted into temporary ice stadiums. Both of these ice hockey mega-events are staged successfully with AST.
The unique AST ice technology can be set up inexpensively and operated energy-efficiently not only for major sporting events, but also for training surfaces (for all ice sports). This makes it possible for all sports clubs to invest in an ice rink of their own. Of course, permanent ice rinks can also be set up both indoors and outdoors.
As well as the perfect ice rink, with AST you will also get perfectly fitting board solutions, always in conformance with international standards (IIHF) and possessing outstanding strength for use in competitive sports events. Based on a rich fund of experience earned over many years, AST offers you individually harmonised total solutions - from the rink to the boards and the ice resurfacing machines, AST is your one-stop shop for ice technology!
AST has been an official partner for the ice hockey world championships several times already, and in this capacity has supplied both ice and board equipment. The high quality of the ice and the professional nature of our cooperation have both been praised and recommended by the International Ice Hockey Federation (IIHF)!
