Hockey’s place in Canadian culture is closer to religion than a simple sporting pastime; it’s a part of the national identity―a rite of passage between fathers and sons and more recently mothers and daughters.
In Québec, sports enthusiasts flock to the Martin St-Louis and Yvon Chartrand hockey arenas to practice and play whenever the opportunity arises. However, when owners planned for their arenas’ new junta alzada metal roofs, they hadn’t considered the average 20 inches of snowfall during the winter months.
So, after the new roofs were installed, they brought in Sky Products, Ltd.,–a Canadian roof equipment solutions provider and S-5! Distributor–to devise a solution to prevent snow from falling off the roofs at the main entrances.
