Bryant Park Ice Rink – LED Dashers

November 20, 2014 8:48 pm, Published by     Leave your thoughts

Green Ray LED recently partnered with Bryant Park in New York City to provide a fully customized product to light the dasher boards at the ice rink for their Bank of America Winter Village. The project required close coordination with Bryant Park and the rink provider to create a solution that overcame three major design challenges:

  • Lighting and optics: custom optics provided even and bright lighting across the entire surface of both sides of the transparent dasher boards, which were just two inches apart and three feet tall
  • Controls: we provided simple, functional dimming controls for multiple distinct lighting zones
  • Installation: extensive planning and coordination allowed us to maintain the clean look of the dasher boards while ensuring safety, unobtrusiveness, and ease of access for maintenance and take-down, all in a complex and challenging environment

The results not only made the rink more aesthetically pleasing by making the graphics on the dasher board glow and really pop, but also provided additional light around the edges of the rink for a safer skating and viewing experience. This winter or next, you should take a lap around the rink and see the dasher board lighting for yourself!
