Synthetic skating rinks have been all the rage with winter enthusiasts around the world in recent years. They offer relief from paying for time on the ice, or going when time is available at a traditional rink. Contact KwikRink Synthetic Ice today for a free consultation for your synthetic rink. 

Our rinks allow you a chance to hone your skills and share quality time with your family on your terms — not to mention health benefits like a great cardio workout provided from skating.

We know that not everyone thinks of synthetic ice as being as exciting as we do. However, we hope to show why a rink is an absolute must-have for any ice skating or winter enthusiast. 

If you would like to learn more about synthetic ice rinks and customize your very own, contact KwikRink Synthetic Ice today!

No Need to Cool Down

Winter sports can be quite restrictive with the time allotted for the season. This is especially true if you live in a warmer climate. There is definitely an offseason in that case. 

Unless you have access to the ice during the offseason, skaters can lose fundamental skills like skating or footwork. Having a rink in your home can prevent that skill loss, and may even help improve skills during the offseason.

Synthetic ice does not have to be temperature regulated. Our synthetic ice panels can be placed in any climate because they do not require electricity or water. No increased electricity or water use is also great for the environment!

You can live in Florida and be practicing jumps or playing hockey with your family in August. Who wouldn’t want to say that in August they played hockey in Florida? 

If you have spent time in a traditional ice rink in an offseason, you know the pinch it puts on your wallet…not to mention the competition for time on the ice, which can be very inconvenient. 

Playtime

It is as easy to install your very own rink as it is to get a consultation with us; both are just a click away.

Each rink comes in panels that snap together to create a seamless skating surface. This makes for easy installation and relocation if needed. If you have a flat surface, then we will gladly bring you a rink.

We have seen families have great fun in their basements, garages, barns, and yards, to name a few places.

Make it known that our product is not just for families or athletes. Synthetic ice rinks are a great addition for anyone that loves to skate and may be short on time. 

Not only can KwikRink Synthetic Ice panels be relocated, but they can be reconfigured too. Rinks are the ultimate winter playground for a family who loves to play on the ice. The possibilities are truly endless.

Because of this, each of our client’s synthetic ice rinks is genuinely unique to that client. 

To get an idea of what a rink would look like for you, visit our configuration tool on our website. We will take the information entered and get back to you promptly with a quote and more information.

Going Worldwide

We should take the time to mention that although we are located in the United States, we proudly deliver internationally. It really does not matter where you live; we are happy to serve you.

In fact, we have delivered synthetic ice rinks in five continents around the world. The Toronto Maple Leafs have installed a KwikRink Synthetic Ice rink in their facility for their use. 

If you have ever wanted to practice as they do in the NHL, a synthetic rink can be a huge item on your wishlist. Just imagine always having home-ice advantage!

Although a residential rink is not the NHL, the playtime spent on one can be invaluable. Especially for the children in your family. 

An essay from the Harvard Graduate School of Education mentions numerous benefits of play for kids. Obviously, exercise is always good, but emotionally it helps children grow too, which is a huge win.

Kids are not the only winners here. For those who want to have fun while having a great cardio session, skating is a great option. That is a definite win for the big kids or adults out there who love skating.

In a way, you can be investing in your own health both mentally and physically.

In it For the Long Run

We take pride in making a product built to last for fifteen-plus years, which means a lot of memories, fun, practicing, and growing skills. It is also a decade of not checking a rink schedule, paying hourly fees, or waiting for the Zamboni to run.

Our panels may not be strong enough for a Zamboni, but they will withstand years of use.

In fact, our ice is durable enough to withstand figure skaters, hockey players, and that weekend race with dad. Each panel of synthetic ice is available in two sizes so you can choose the one best for you: four-by-eight feet panels a half-inch thick or four-by-four feet panels that are 3/8 inch thick. These panels can handle hours of skating, jumps, and hockey stops. In fact, you can park a car on our panels! (Just put a tarp down first to catch any oil or debris.)

KwikRink Synthetic Ice has been in the synthetic ice industry since the early 1990s and we are constantly evolving our product. Our industry-leading technology is a testament to our passion for a rink that would be on our own wishlist (if we didn’t already have one!).

Customers are encouraged to really make rinks their own with custom markings — goalie creases or faceoff dots, for instance. A wide variety of accessories are also offered to make your experience as personalized as possible. 

Dasher boards, shooting tarps, as well as netting and plexiglass, are a few of the accessories offered. Practice, play, and train in your own way and on your own time. That alone can place having a residential rink pretty high on a winter enthusiast’s wishlist.

Purchasing a synthetic ice rink can be a big commitment — a commitment to your health, your family’s fun, and many years of quality memories.

Contact KwikRink Synthetic Ice today for a free consultation. We would love to help you mark this item off your list.

Benefits of Artificial Ice

Did you know that by installing an indoor artificial ice rink in your home, you can help your wallet and reduce your carbon footprint? It’s true! 

Real ice is complex and expensive to maintain. It also requires the proper temperature. Even cold climates don’t stay below freezing year-round. 

That, in turn, usually translates into your purchasing highly sought after ice time. Thoughts of having real ice in a warmer climate melt faster than the ice itself.

In addition, even if you live in a colder climate, costly refrigeration systems are needed to keep ice in a solid-state indoors. Even a small-sized indoor rink can cost upwards of $5,000 for proper HVAC, which explains why local ice rinks charge such high prices. 

Why pay for exorbitant prices at your local rink for ice time, when you could be the one charging others to pay for your indoor “ice” time! With a KwikRink indoor ice rink installed in your home or business, you are the one in charge. 

Compared to real ice, maintenance and upkeep costs of artificial ice are virtually zero. With just a few sprays of lubricant, your KwikRink is as good as new. Real ice wastes upwards of 12,000 gallons of water for a full-size rink. That’s the amount of water an average family of 4 uses per month

Our highly specialized materials require very little maintenance: no new material waste, water waste, or wallet pain. Synthetic indoor ice is another tool you can use to combat climate change. 

Our indoor rinks are cost-effective and are making your skating dreams into reality. No project is too challenging for our installation pros. Check out some residential spaces we have developed here.

How Does Synthetic Ice Compare to Real Ice? 

 

KwikRink Synthetic Ice’s expert design boasts an impressive 90% comparison rate to that of real ice. Start, stop, pass, shoot, and score your way into the best feeling artificial ice. Users of KwikRink happily report ease of glide and maneuvering and precision in all forms of stopping. 

Did we mention you won’t need a Zamboni with KwikRink? That’s right! KwikRink synthetic ice simply needs to be kept clean to keep the “ice” healthy.

We realize most residential homes won’t need a Zamboni, but your real homemade rink won’t repair itself. This translates into more water waste and time spent on unnecessary maintenance. A KwikRink synthetic rink won’t need this extra maintenance. 

Our rinks are also highly durable. Our thinner surface rinks have a 7-10 year lifespan, while our thicker surfaces have well surpassed ten years. Now that’s a guarantee you can take to the net.
