How Much Does A Home Synthetic Ice Rink Cost?

Synthetic Ice Solutions - Thursday, August 22, 2019

Did you grow up playing hockey on a backyard skating rink? Do you want to give that same reality to your child only better? Imagine being able to skate at home all year long on your own ice rink!

You may think installing a synthetic ice rink in your home is out of reach. Consider the expense of driving your child to and from the ice rink and the cost of booking ice time. Over the years this adds up. You need to consider this when thinking the initial expense of an artificial rink is too much. It will pay for itself over the years! Once installed a synthetic ice surface does not require any additional expenses such as water and electricity. Not to mention the fact that you won’t have to spend your valuable time sitting in a cold arena.

The cost of a home rink is really up to you. Because an ice rink is custom made, you can make it as big or  small as you’d like. Installing a small ice pad is ideal for practicing skating and stick handling skills. A larger rink is obviously what you’d want if you are looking for full game action or speed skating practice.

When choosing a synthetic ice surface, it is very important that you look for a quality supplier. Trying to save money by purchasing a cheap product will only lead to frustration and lack of use. You want to choose a product that is easy to install, fits together seamlessly and provides a smooth skating surface. Synthetic Ice Solutions provides a state-of-the-art polymer skating surface with less friction than other competitors. This means it is almost the same as skating on real ice! Our ice is durable with superior wear providing a longer life. In fact, our ice will last 20 years (10 years use on each side) and requires no messy lubricants like cheaper versions would.

The beauty of a synthetic ice surface is that it can be installed on any flat surface in your home. Basements, garages, decks and backyards are great places to practice your skills. And because Synthetic Ice Solutions has a “True Lock” connecting system, you can be assured that your ice panels will fit together perfectly even if you want to move it around.

Synthetic Ice Solutions pricing depends on the size and thickness of the panels that you require. For example, you can expect a 12’ X 16’ surface to start at $1344 and a larger 20’ X 28’ rink to start at $3920. (for ¼” panels; pricing in Canadian Dollars) Not a bad investment when you consider you’ll be able to practice and skate any time you want!

Why Climate Change Is Increasing Demand For Synthetic Ice Rinks

Synthetic Ice Solutions - Thursday, August 15, 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 is 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.
