New AST ProSport board system at BLZ Füssen
Recently, the federal training centre for ice sport in Füssen was equipped with the novel AST high-tech board system ProSport. This system was best ranked at the load test for force-absorbing ice hockey boards carried out by the Swiss Council for Accident Prevention and will also be installed in Hof and Krefeld this year. Thanks to innovative transparent posts, the audience is able to have optimal visibility, while players and referees are getting maximum protection. The boards are standardized according to DIN 18036 and ensure also best conditions for sledge hockey: players- and penalty benches are panelled with transparent elements, low thresholds enable great mobility. The German women’s national team has already had a successful training session with the new ProSport system and also the participants of the Füssen Junior Camp 2018 – where curling teams from 20 nations visited the arena – were impressed by the quality of the AST product. In autumn the high end boards will be part of an international top event – the IIHF U20 Division IA World Championships.
