Step One: Pick-A-Panel
After years of receiving customer feedback as to what best suits their synthetic ice "needs" we have narrowed it down to two (2) options for you to consider while going through the decision-making process. We have listed some of the most popular rink packages to help you get an idea of what product best suits your overall needs and budget (If you're not quite sure please "Request a Quote"):
HOME ICE TILES
Lightweight, portable home ice tiles ideal for any small indoor rink project. Double-sided panels (can be skated on both sides). Choose from single or mutliple box sets.
Full-size, premium grade panels ideal for dedicated spaces and commercial installations (indoor or outdoor use). The cream of the crop in synthetic ice surfaces.
When trying to determine "Actual Size" dimensions of your assembled rink be sure to use the panel sizing below then subtract the seam dimension.
- Home Ice Panel (4-per kit) = ¼” thick X 24” X 48” (1" Seam), 10lbs.each panel / 40 lbs. per box. (Box Shipped)
- Pro-Glide Panel (Full-SIze)= ½” thick X 46” X 92” (1-1/2" Seam), 80 lbs. each panel. (Freight Shipped)
- Pro-Glide Panel (Half-SIze)= ½” thick X 46” X 46” (1-1/2" Seam), 40 lbs. each panel. (Freight & Individually Box Shipped- Call for pricing).
NOTE: Pro-Glide Panels available in Commercial Grade UHMW - Call for pricing: 855-POLY-ICE
All of our panels are manufactured and infused with a slip agent additive that reduces surface friction (coefficient of friction) and does not require any surface glide enhancers. Our proprietary blend offers optimal glide and performance while limiting skate blade wear.
- Ideal for Ice Skating
- Great for Dedicated Spaces
- Commercial or Residential installations.
No surface Enhancers Necessary
All PolyGlide Synthteic Ice panels are fabricated with our patented "Grip Lock" interlocking Dovetail profile to insure a flat skating surface and secure connection. Panels can be easily assembled on any hard, flat surface using a heavy rubber mallet or tamper with protective wood blocking.
Both infused and non-infused surfaces need to be kept clean and free of dirt, dust and debris to maintain optimal performance. Use any PH neutral soap to break-up dirt accumulation on your surface and wipe clean. A soft-scrub mop or brush may be used to loosen-up stubborn scuff marks.
For outdoor rinks simply rinse with a hose or power-wash with a fine spray. In cold climate areas, provisions must be made to allow for expansion and contraction to avoid stress cracks over time.
Synthetic ice is a "floating floor", much like indoor laminate flooring and is not to be mechanically fastened in any way. Be sure not to impede the surface around the perimter and to leave a gap if boards or fencing is to be installed.
