Ice Rink Purchase Services

As well as providing the ice rink, we make sure you’ve got everything you need so you can sit back and relax.

With our experience in synthetic ice rink sales across the globe, we can offer opportunities to our suppliers that will allow them to capitalise on the continued popularity of the ‘ice’ related activities. Our rinks are designed to be an alternative when real ice rinks are unable to be installed; this could be due to location, time, costs, etc. We use the latest technology to offer an authentic and memorable ice skating experience.

Why choose synthetic ice?

Our rinks have a huge advantage over real ice due to many factors:

  • Our surface cannot melt

  • We can guarantee 24/7 skating

  • More economically friendly - No need for expensive polluting generators or chillers so there are no huge fuel or water bills

  • Our surfaces make for a safer skate for everyone (NISA approved)

  • There’s no resurfacing needed

  • Installation and de-rigging is more time efficient

As well as being cheaper to run and maintain, the initial outlay cost is much cheaper meaning that our clients are provided with a more profitable, revenue-generating resource. With our recommended maintenance and care, Ice Magic® synthetic ice maintains a consistent glide factor of approximately 90% and can be open 24/7. To put this into comparison, wet ice rinks start at 100% and reduce to around 80% after a few hours and will need resurfacing at regular intervals.

FAQ's

Purchase Questions

Why should you choose Ice Magic®?
We have a range of surfaces to suit any event and budget. With panels 18mm thick, our panels have been endorsed by the National Ice Skating Association as well as professional skaters and coaches. As well as this, they are suitable for installation both outdoors and indoors.
Do you offer a warranty package?
Our ice panel warranty is 15 years; this is from the date purchased and based on continuous daily usage. Our unique rink barrier systems also come with a 10 year warranty (excludes kicker boards). All additional support items such as skates, rink cleaning machine, skate grinder, etc come with the full manufacturer’s warranty with our suppliers being industry leaders in their fields.
What is the operational temperature range?
Our ‘ice’ rinks are not adversely affected by extreme weather conditions, therefore making it perfect for both indoor and outdoor use around the globe. Our operational temperature range of equipment is in excess of -40°C to +40°C. Our strong, durable surfaces will not crack, warp, splinter or corrode and are chemical and water resistant.
Can you use normal ice skates on the synthetic ice rink?
Yes, you can. Our panels allow you to use either figure skates or ice hockey skates; it is important to keep your skate blades sharp to enjoy the optimum skating experience.
How does it compare to real/wet ice?

There is a greater frictional resistance on a plastic surface, bringing positive aspects and challenges depending on the technical ability of those skating.

  • Beginners/Recreational Skaters - It is an excellent surface and great fun. It is different from ice but very good for learning the basics. Due to the additional friction, there is not as much initial glide, therefore your feet don’t tend to disappear from underneath you so rapidly.

  • Intermediate Skaters - For those who have experienced the glide factor of ice, synthetic rinks do demand a bit more effort but are still great fun.

  • Advanced Skaters - Again, you have to put in more effort to gain speed and techniques may need to be adapted. However, it is still possible to perform all the major jumps, flips and spins.


What are the glide capabilities with Ice Magic®?
With proper maintenance and care, our ‘ice’ rinks maintain a consistent glide factor of 90% for the life of the product. In comparison, dependant on resurfacing capabilities, wet ice rinks start with a glide capability of 100% which then drops to around 80% after a few hours. Under normal circumstances, a wet ice rink would have to close for resurfacing, whereas a synthetic rink can remain open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
What are the operational/maintenance running costs?
Apart from maintaining a clean surface of the rink, the only other task is spraying the surface with a fine coating of skate enhancer (diluted 1:3 with water) at regular intervals. This can be done by rink staff, either on skates or normal footwear, using backpack spray applicators. This means that there is no need to clear the rink of skaters while performing the task. Skate enhancer is non-toxic, environmentally friendly and inexpensive.
Is Ice Magic® suitable for figure skating and ice hockey?
Definitely. We supply our ‘ice’ panels to event management companies for the staging of spectacular ice shows as it allows experienced skaters to execute all movements that they would perform on normal ice. In terms of ice hockey, Ice Magic® is ideally suited for practising techniques including stops, slap shots, and goaltending. It can also be installed within a domestic or commercial setting. Using Ice Magic® panels regularly will improve stamina, hone technique and minimise muscle strain due to the lack of extreme temperatures.
What is required for the installation process?
All we require is a firm, flat and level area. For example, previous installations have been carried out on tennis courts, car parks, sports halls, etc. If you would like the rink to be on grass, a suitable sub floor (such as plywood sheets) is required to be provided by the client; this is to prevent any rain water leaking onto the rink or subsidence of the panels. Unfortunately we cannot set up directly onto sand.
How durable is Ice Magic®?
Our panels are 100% ultra high density polythene and therefore both sides are able to be skated upon. As an example, our Perma Glide 18mm panels have a life expectancy of at least 15 years.
What are your shipping/transport arrangements?
Our Ice Magic® product range is manufactured, prepared for delivery and dispatched from our premises in the UK, using reputable shipping agents. Dependant upon the location, size of the client and size of the order, we prep all of our equipment for dispatch by sea, air freight or container lorries if it is overland. For overseas clients, we are able to provide Harmonised Custom Tariff codes where appropriate. You can of course arrange your own shipping.
Is there a minimum order quantity?
Yes, there is a minimum purchase order quantity of 64m².
