Curling Clubs

Curling clubs require different design methodologies than other refrigeration systems. We will work with you to fully understand your club’s user groups, fiscal constraints, operating constraints, and desired operating conditions, allowing us to provide the best possible solution for your club.

Using our experience designing and project managing curling clubs across North America, we work with our clients to ensure the right refrigeration system is installed. 

We recommend that our clients consider the following:


As energy, maintenance, and personnel costs increase year after year, the most cost-effective way of reducing a recreation facility’s operating costs is through energy efficiency upgrades and greenhouse gas reductions. Polar understands these upgrades can be very expensive and therefore works with our clients to secure millions of dollars in grants every year. 

Furthermore, Polar understands everyone is busy and therefore enjoys helping our clients by taking care of the entire grant process include grant research, grant writing, engineering calculations, and project implementation.  Please feel free to get into contact with our grant division to discuss if there are any grants that could be used for a project at your facility.
