Curling club gets federal grant

The Salmon Arm Curling Club received a federal grant to help renovations.

The Salmon Arm Curling Club is getting a new energy-efficient ceiling.

The club received a grant from the Canada 150 Community Infrastructure Program for $25,000.

The grant will help pay for the replacement of the water treatment system and installation of low emissivity ceilings.

Radiant heat transfer between the roof of a rink and the ice beneath is the single greatest factor behind heat gain in a typical arena.

Once the low emissivity ceiling is retrofitted, it will reduce heat fluctuations radiated from the roof to the ice, saving between 20 to 35 per cent of the refrigeration energy costs at the rink.

In total, eight curling centres in B.C.  received grants totalling almost $830,000.

The Canada 150 Community Infrastructure Program is part of the government investment into improving local infrastructure across the country to create a lasting legacy to celebrate Canada’s 150th anniversary.
