Duncan MacDonald Arena Dasher Board Upgrade and PRoXL Rubber Floors

Duncan MacDonald ArenaTrenton Ontario is located at the western end of the Bay of Quinte, at the mouth of the Trent River, and is the gateway to the historic Trent-Severn Waterway.

Located on Couch Crescent in Centennial Park, the Duncan-MacDonald Arena features two fully accessible rinks and a multi-purpose room with a 240 person capacity.

Early 2015, Sound Barriers was contracted to provide a complete upgrade of the dasher boards in Rink A.

Sound Barrier did a full demolition of the existing dasher boards and rebuilt a new permanent steel frame on site. New .500” white puck board, yellow kick strip and red top sill was then installed using countersunk, colour matched fasteners.

Dasher board gates were installed with ice-side release latches providing ease of access.

Sound Barriers also supplied and installed 4000 sqft of ProXL resilient rubber flooring in the rink area, boxes and dressing rooms.

The Duncan MacDonald Arena opted for ProXL 512 grey/black tiles, a solid colored, dual layer, marble accent rubber flooring tile. ProXL’s slip-resistant, textured top wear layer provides a non-porous, safe and resilient floor finish.

ProXL is a dual-layer, vulcanized rubber designed for durability. Its’ slip resistant surface is ideal for arenas and recreational facilities.
