2021 – Think Eco-Friendly with SmartRink Synthetic Ice

There’s no doubt about it, SmartRink synthetic ice is an eco-friendly solution to real ice. 

Synthetic ice rinks do not require water (other than for cleaning purposes) and without the use of refrigeration, high electricity expenses and heavy equipment it is an environmentally focused cost effective alternative that is rapidly becoming a widely accepted skating platform worldwide.

Not only is it capital / operating cost effective and eco-friendly, the accessibility benefits open up all kinds of new opportunities that are just not practical with real ice. 

Imagine skating all summer long outdoors

Imagine training virtually anywhere because home rinks are becoming a safer option during the pandemic.

We have clients in warmer climates throughout the world who are enjoying this sport outdoors all year long, some even for the first time!

At SmartRink, we believe in being aware of our environmental footprint and responsibilities. Worldwide corporations and governments are continually implementing laws to limit carbon emissions. 

We stand behind the durability of our German manufactured panels, some that offer even a lifetime use warranty, but we also take pride in knowing we use materials that can be recycled even after many years of use.

We challenge you to partner with us!

That’s the SmartRink difference.

2020 Year at a Glance

To say this was a challenging, strange, stressful year would be an understatement.

Families, businesses and sports have had a challenging time navigating this new normal that has affected us all.

The last time SmartRink was able to travel outside of Atlantic Canada was March 20, 2020. We built a beautiful new training center rink in Portsmouth, New Hampshire. Since then, like a lot of companies, we have had to adapt and adjust how we do business.

Regardless of these new challenges, business continued and communities around the world in various stages of lock down were determined to continue to train.

We utilized technology to help us with communication and this even allowed us to provide animated assembly instructions to support our distributors worldwide.

We are super proud of all the SmartRink clients who never gave up and continued to train!

We have been privileged to be able to help and support so many families, communities and sports teams as they found creative and strategic ways to continue training, developing skill and working hard!

It has been a heartwarming and humbling experience to share in your stories and challenges as you faced this new normal and the many struggles that accompanied it.

SmartRink salutes you all!

They kept training in Canada

They kept training in USA

They kept training in Finland

They kept training in China

They kept training in Switzerland

Around the world they kept skating, working on their skills, getting better, faster, and more determined.

It has been a pleasure to work with all of you. Our clients vary from families to training centres, worldwide distributors, sports teams and schools all over the globe.

We value each and every one of you and wish you a safe and prosperous 2021!

Congratulations to you all! Keep up the great work!
