Sound Barriers Dasher BoardsSound Barriers has been awarded the contract for new Dasher Boards at the Kanata Recreation Complex.

The Recreation Complex is a twin pad and is the home of Kanata Minor Hockey as well as the Kanata Stallions ( JR. A Hockey Club ). It will host the Fred Page Cup April 25th-29th and then the major facelift will begin.

The old Dasher Boards are being dismantled by AWD Contractors (Perth,ON) and are being donated to the Rideau Valley School Board for an outdoor pad.

They are replacing their current steel and wood structure with a Sound Barriers PF-A-01 Prefabricated Aluminum Framed Dasher Board System. The dasher panels will be fabricated in demountable sections of nominal 8 ft. Lengths.

The new arena will have 6 ft. High tempered glass throughout, new 2 piece front loading supports, new player/penalty benches, rubber mat flooring, bottle shelves and a new timer shelf.

Construction will begin in early May and end in mid June.


Resistall PartitionsSound Barriers has sold the first Resistall plastic toilet partitions in Ontario to the Lucan Community Memorial Centre ( Lucan,ON ). The first ever sale was to Evolution Ice in Montreal,PQ.

The order is for six (6) stalls and it will replace the existing hollow metal stalls in their seasonal park restrooms.

The Lucan Centre currently has Santana 1” thick solid plastic throughout their facility but they were looking for a less expensive option for their needs in the seasonal park restrooms. The restrooms are only open from May- October and then they are shut down.

Resistall Partitions, which are competitive with traditional metal partitions, are manufactured from HDPE and are impermeable to moisture and will never need painting unlike metal partitions. They will also never delaminate and are built to resist mildew, odours, corrosion and dents, saving maintenance costs.

The Partitions will ship in April and will be installed by the Lucan staff.
