Why Synthetic Ice Solutions Has the Best Artificial Ice

Synthetic Ice Solutions - Friday, July 26, 2019

Are you in the market for an artificial ice surface for you home or recreational facility? Synthetic ice rinks are becoming more popular because of their convenience and eco-friendly benefits. You want to be sure you are purchasing a superior product for maximum enjoyment.

It doesn’t matter if you are looking to install a small pad for your house or a full-sized skating rink for a business; Synthetic Ice Solutions has the best product for you. We pride ourselves on using the most technologically advanced materials to give you the best artificial ice available. The specially formulated polymer provides a superior skating surface that is smooth, strong and durable. Ultra-violet stabilization allows our ice surface to be installed anywhere. It stands up to heat and cold so can be used indoors or out.

Compared to other artificial ice surfaces, Synthetic Ice Solutions’ pads provide the least amount of resistance and friction, so no messy liquid silicone is necessary. Skating on our surface requires 10-15% more effort than skating on real ice, but this is ideal for those hockey players or figure skaters looking to improve their skills. Skaters will become stronger from skating on our ice. 



Each panel is custom-made to suit your space. We use 4’ x 8’ and 4’ x 4’ panels to minimize the number of seams. Our “True Lock” connecting system allows for a perfect fit and because of our state-of-the-art technology, you will not experience the contraction and expansion issues that other inferior products have.

Our ice pads have a long life. With regular use, you should get 10 years out of one side and then 10 on the other. Installation is simple, a 16’ x 32’ rink should only take 1 ½ hours to put together and you’ll be ready to skate immediately! Maintenance is super easy too. Sweeping with a damp mop is all that is required. It is recommended if you are installing outside, you keep your surface covered with a tarp to protect it from leaves, sap, dirt and other environmental factors.

Synthetic Ice Solutions gives you a top-of-the-line skating surface and is your best bet when it comes to performance, speed, design and price. Whether you are looking for a residential or commercial ice pad, we should be your only choice. Give us a call and we will set up a time for you to come try before you buy.

Synthetic Ice is an Eco-Friendly Ice Surface

Synthetic Ice Solutions - Thursday, July 11, 2019

Climate change is affecting all aspects of our lives. Many of us are not conscious of how many things that we do affect the environment. We all need to make changes to conserve our planet but also because as temperatures rise, we are being forced to come up with alternative solutions.

Water is one of our most precious resources. Our fresh water supply is dwindling, and we need to do everything we can to conserve it. Synthetic ice is one eco-friendly solution to water conservation as it requires none to keep the surface smooth. A traditional ice rink requires thousands of gallons to first create a surface and then frequent flooding to keep the surface free of ruts and bumps. 

Many communities are looking for alternative solutions to the conventional ice rink. Traditional rinks are costly to run, requiring large amounts of electricity to maintain and operate the refrigeration system. Synthetic ice needs no electricity and can be used in any environment.



Traditional outdoor rinks rely on cold temperatures for an ideal skating surface. As temperatures rise, there are fewer days that a rink can be used. Artificial ice rinks are a fabulous alternative as they can be used year-round, no matter the temperature. There is no need to rely on the elements! Maintaining a synthetic ice rink has minimal cost. And no Zamboni is required! 

Whether the synthetic ice surface is installed inside or out, a fabulous ice-skating experience can be enjoyed year round by figure skaters, hockey players and recreational skaters. And all can feel good about it as this environmentally conscious surface saves huge amounts of water and electricity. 

Choosing a reputable company in crucial to ensure a smooth, seam-free surface. Synthetic Ice Solutions uses cutting edge technology and the most advanced materials to produce the best artificial ice available today. Superior fit and durability will allow for years and years of skating enjoyment.
