STEP 1: 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

The PolyGlide Difference
Todays market is being flooded with so many different synthetic ice products, many of which claim to be the 'real deal', making it hard to decide which one to buy.
Yet, as many skaters have experienced firsthand, many will leave you disappointed.
But what makes these alternatives fall short, and why has the quest for the perfect synthetic ice been so elusive?
- One-sided Use: Most all the skating tiles being sold are manufactured using an inexpensive method known as injection-molding. These tiles are all single-sided and once one side wears out, they’re rendered useless, redusing the lifespan of the product.
- Inadequate Glide: The essence of ice skating lies in the glide. However, many other products lack that authentic glide factor, feeling more like dragging rather than skating.This not only diminishes the joy of skating but can also hamper proper skill development and training.
- Maintenance Hassles: Some panels demand frequent upkeep, be it cleaning, smoothing, or additional treatments.This not only disrupts one’s regular skating rhythm but also adds hidden costs and labor.
- Limited Durability: Often, synthetic tiles may show quick wear and tear signs, especially at high-contact points, leading to unevenness and potentially unsafe conditions.
- Material Flaws: Many brands resort to cheap, injection-molded materials in an effort to cut costs. These can wear out quickly, leading to uneven surfaces and compromising the skating experience.
It's these persistent pitfalls that deter many from fully embracing synthetic alternatives, keeping the dream of perfect at-home skating always just out of reach.
KIDS CAN'T GET ENOUGH!
Got our starter kit and have been skating ever since!!! The kids can't get enough so it looks like we'll be buying more! Great product and easy to install....highly recommended!!!
AWESOME!! Only problem is I am going to have to keep buying more in order to provide more skating area. Really awesome stuff!!! We live in an area where the ice rink is only available from Oct-Mar every year. Bought this product to keep the kids skating throughout the summer months.
AMAZING GIFT : )
What am amazing gift, we just received this set for our three year old and could not be happier. Thank you PolyGlide for making outdoor ice skating possible in Florida!!!
MY SON LOVE IT!!!
This is the best stuff ever! My son was so excited when we got it for him and has skated every day since - amazingly easy to set up and just start skating. I had to try it out too and was amazed with how well it works. The only problem is you are going to keep wanting more!
AMAZING PRODUCT & CUSTOMER SERVICE
I had been shopping the idea of synthetic ice for my backyard for a while and could not find a product that offered the ability to add size as I go or the affordability of PolyGlide. I have had it for a week now and it's an amazing product. It doesn't hurt that the customer service I have received has been off the charts as well. If your shopping for synthetic ice this is the place to buy!
