On older maps Zodony street can be found as the extension of
Téglaégető street. In the facility built by a Finnish design, 1,000 seats or
1,500 standing places serve the spectators. Two large and two small
dressing-rooms serve the sportsmen. The size of the ice-rink is 60 by 30
meters, which is the size of the international standard hockey rink.

Sports first and foremost

The ice-rink is in district XX. of the capital, in Pesterzsébet. The
size of the ice-rink is 60 by 30 meters, which is the size of the international
standard hockey rink. In the concrete layer under the ice, Uponor Meltaway
system has been installed. Pipes are installed 80 mm from each other, fastened to
the steel structure by plastic clamps. After laying down the pipes, a pressure
test was carried out, then concrete layer was poured, maintaining 2 bar
pressure in the pipes. The slope of the rink is less, than 30 mm, waviness of
the concrete is below 6 mm. This provides for the uniform thickness and high
quality of the ice. The concrete layer is cooled down to below 0 degrees
Celsius by circulating ethylene glycol in the Uponor pipes. The interesting
feature of the project is that under the insulating layer, there is a
conservation de-icing sand layer, which is kept on a temperature a few degrees
above 0 Celsius, by another Uponor Meltaway system. With the two Uponor systems
ideal circumstances can be provided to the sportsmen all year round.

Icerink in "Városliget"

Icerink in "Városliget"

The history of the skating-rink The skating-rink of the Városliget, which was opened in 1926, was the second skating-rink (after Vienna) in Europe. In WWII it suffered a bomb hit, and in the 1950's it was only repaired temporarily. The latest large-scale renovation was carried out in 1986, when the modified power-house and condenser plant were installed, and the new, third layer of pipes was laid on the rink. After some small and large engineering modifications (1999 to 2001) – since the engineering system was outdated and spoiled – Municipality of Budapest called for a tender for comprehensive architectural and engineering reconstruction of the Skating-rink of Városliget.
