Active Standard ASTM F2442 | Developed by Subcommittee: F08.66
Book of Standards Volume: 15.07
This guide for the layout of the ice rink/arenas includes guidelines for developing an artificial indoor ice rink/arena. This guide describes systematic procedures and criteria for the development of the arena's appurtenant facilities. A description of several appurtenant facilities utilized in ice rink/arenas is included within the guide as examples of those that should be considered. The guidelines in the design and selection of ice rink/arena dehumidification equipment are presented in details. Many factors, including climate, can influence the selection of ice rink systems and other components. The ice rink system and other interior and exterior components should be thoroughly designed by an experienced, registered professional engineer or architect. The ice arena may include space for the ice rink, mechanical room, entry arena, participant changing areas, spectator, and administrative areas. The ice rink/arena structure shall meet minimum insulation U values and R ratings. The fire capacity of the building, classification of use, and intensity of patron use should be considered in the design process. Gasoline, propane, or natural gas may be used in the facility, and storage systems for these materials should be included into facility design and stipulated by state and local codes.
This abstract is a brief summary of the referenced standard.

1.1 This guide for the layout of the ice rink/arenas includes guidelines for developing an artificial indoor ice rink/arena. This guide describes systematic procedures and criteria for the development of the arena's appurtenant facilities. A description of several appurtenant facilities utilized in ice rink/arenas is included within the guide as examples of those that should be considered.
1.2 This guide addresses only those phases of a project related to the selection design, specification, and installation procedures. 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.
1.3 This guide shall only be used by architects, designers, registered engineers, construction contractors, owners/operators, and appropriate inspectors who are involved in the design and construction of new ice arena venues.
1.4 This guide is pertinent to the support facilities of a multi-use ice arena.
1.5 The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as standard. The values given in parentheses are mathematical conversions to SI units that are provided for information only and are not considered standard.
This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
