MERIDIAN CENTRE GLASS CLEANING POLICY

In keeping with OHL/NHL facility guidelines, the Meridian Centre is equipped with the more forgiving, and shatter-proof, plexiglass system. The more rigid tempered glass is no longer used for player and spectator safety reasons in all NHL buildings and is gradually being brought into all OHL buildings. While increasing safety, the main drawback of plexiglass is the tendency of the glass to be permanently scarred from puck and stick marks.

 The Meridian Centre adheres to an industry Standard Operating Policy that sees the glass cleaned on a weekly basis. This schedule reflects the overall use of the facility, not necessarily a game schedule practices inflict the greatest impact on the number of marks on the glass. 

 The plexiglass itself is cleaned completely by hand with special cloths and a material specific cleaning solution. It is very labour intensive and literally requires every mark to be polished by hand. Unfortunately, over time you will notice these marks never go away 100% and eventually the plexiglass will have to be replaced. The impact on spectator experience is, unfortunately, an acknowledged trade-off made in favour of increased safety for both players and spectators.
