Sansin SDF Protects Four-Season Park Structure

September 2021 —–
Parc des Saphirs

NATURALLY PERFECT® WOOD PROTECTION

Designed to encourage year-round enjoyment, the Parc des Saphirs ice rink is located in an urban park on the edge of the Royal Quebec Golf Club in Boischatel, QC. The rink invites community members for skating and hockey in the winter and ball hockey or basketball in the summer – thanks to the gravity-defying glulam roof by Art Massif that offers four-season protection from the elements. Designed by ABCP Architecture, the structure has an open-air feel with an architectural concept based on a large wood-steel hybrid frame. The glulam structure with its steel tensioning system supports a 28-meter clear span despite being relatively thin. Sansin SDF in a Suede tint was applied to the Spruce Glulam. The coating was selected for its ability to penetrate deep into the wood and provide outstanding UV protection and water repellence while being breathable.
