The Snowfactory for indoor snowmaking

The Snowfactory can provide the snow required for indoor winter activities. By using a Snowfactory, the hall does not have to be cooled down to cold temperatures, which saves valuable energy. The Snowfactory produces snow at external temperatures of up to +35°C, allowing the creation of an indoor winter world with pleasantly comfortable temperatures of +15°C to +25°C. The innovative snowmachine is therefore ideal for indoor snow parks, where up to 5,000 m² of snow playgrounds and small pistes are covered with snow for learners making their first attempts at skiing and sledging. Such indoor snow parks are often located in shopping centres, offering visitors spontaneous winter fun and their very first winter sports experiences, even without special winter equipment. The consistency of the snowflakes can be refined, if desired, to create an experience that resembles nature as closely as possible. The highlight of every indoor snow park is the simulation of falling snow: this optional feature of the Snowfactory guarantees an unforgettable snowfall experience for the visitors on an area of 30 m².

The Snowfactory in Jakarta

In Bekasi (Indonesia), a suburb of the capital Jakarta, four Snowfactory SF100 Plus units were installed at a 4,000 m² indoor centre. The Trans Snow World is part of a large residential, business, shopping and entertainment complex. The attraction is open all year round and offers no end of fun in the snow playground area and on the ski slopes. To adapt the Snowfactory to the extremely warm climate conditions of the location and increase efficiency, a specifically customised model is used to produce snow at temperatures of up to 35°C.
