Commercial Synthetic Ice

Commercial Synthetic Ice

Rinks designated as commercial synthetic ice are typically those larger in size used for a variety of applications such as, for profit operation, hockey training centres and community applications. User safety is always a primary concern and as such the level of due diligence in considering both the material and the panel connection system warrant serious consideration. There are a few critical questions that need to be considered and we are happy to assist you in selecting the best product for the application.

Commercial Synthetic Ice Connection systems

Although most suppliers claim to have a heavy duty or commercial synthetic ice panel, what they really mean is that they have a thicker panel. At SmartRink we take the time to really understand your application and we have a variety of connection systems to offer you based on:

  • number of skaters
  • inside or outside installation
  • permanent or temporary setup
  • the type of substrate
  • how the rink will be used

For installation and safe skating peace of mind contact us and we will help you understand all your commercial synthetic ice options.
