The purchase of a dasher board system is an investment in the future. Whether you have a municipal or private facility, you probably have a vested interest in maintaining your dasher board investment to ensure problem free use, safety and reliability for 20 to 30 years.
Dasher boards also impact the overall image of your facility. Clean boards give customers a lasting and positive impression. Starting with newly installed boards, begin the maintenance process by sealing the clean poly facing. This can be done with a sealer or wax that is applied with a paint roller. This does not stop marks or dirt from forming on the facing surface but does reduce time and labor for subsequent cleanings. Two light coats of a sealer applied to new boards or freshly cleaned boards will pay for itself in one cleaning process, due to time and materials saved.
Safety of skaters and spectators is one of an arena operator’s primary responsibilities. Performing proper, regular inspections and maintenance to the dasher board system will help assure that both spectators and participants have a safe and enjoyable experience.
