Liquidating on behalf of the former North Iowa Ice Arena: 150+ pieces of tempered glass, dividers and hardware. Various sizes of tempered hockey glass, a couple of thicknesses. There are approximately 93 glass pieces in the east room, 50 or so in the southwest room and 14+ in the NW room. Lot also includes many dividers and hardware. Auctioneer's general impression is that the glass appears to be in good condition. There is no guarantee that all the pieces that would be needed for installation are included or that they are in usable condition so please inspect and bid accordingly. 

See notes about removal in the “Details” section of the auction terms. 

Some of the glass panels are labeled "Rink Systems".
