Ice skating is a favourite pastime for many. But an ice rink can be costly to install and maintain. Ever thought about a synthetic ice rink Specially formulated polymer sheets fit together like puzzle pieces and are custom made to create the size of rink desired.
A traditional ice rink takes hours to create. There is huge preparation involved. A base and border need to be constructed. Then frequent flooding is required to create a smooth surface. A synthetic ice rink takes very little time to assemble. All you need is a flat surface to put your rink on. It depends on the size, but it typically takes an hour and a bit from the time the sheets are unpacked to the time you can skate.
A traditional ice rink is costly to maintain. Refrigeration requires a lot of electricity and the constant flooding of the surface uses a ton of water. It needs a Zamboni to clear the surface of the ice to keep it clean and smooth. This also means manpower and extra wages to maintain it. A synthetic ice rink on the other hand, needs very little maintenance. Once installed it may need a sweep from time to time or at the most, a quick mopping. No special chemicals are needed. Soap and water will suffice.
