Super-Glide Synthetic Ice Installation

Installation is quick and easy!

Super-Glide® is not only the best artificial ice skating surface for both temporary and permanent skating rinks and facilities, but it is also specifically designed for quick and easy installation. Global Synthetic Ice mills each Super-Glide panel to perfection on computer controlled equipment for a perfect fit every time. Super-Glide is designed to be installed easily without any special tools or construction knowledge.

Global Synthetic Ice has been concentrating efforts on installation methods for outdoor facilities since 2000, and now has created a successful method to build full size outdoor facilities. This new method makes indoor installations a breeze, replacing real ice is a snap.





The revolutionary new patent pending assembly method used on Super-Glide Heavy Duty synthetic ice panels is the result of 25 years of experimentation in real life situations; it solves all the problems that hindered the construction of a successful full size outdoor synthetic ice rink. Designed to control expansion and eliminate cracks during contraction, and engineered to withstand forces over 200,000 pounds, allows any size rink to be built inside or outside in extreme temperatures. This new installation method allows panels to be installed in significantly less time than with prior systems!

Global Synthetic Ice stands alone when it comes to technological advancements in the Synthetic Ice Industry.



Home Skating Rinks

The Super-Glide artificial ice skating surface is a great option for home use. Any flat space can become a home skating rink. A garage, a basement, a spare room, or even the back yard will work. The skating surface is sold as a kit with a minimum of four panels.

Installation is quick and easy using the full installation instructions in the owner's manual that comes with each kit. Information on care and maintenance of the synthetic ice skating surface is also included in the owner's manual. Note that installation may require substratum or other preparation not included in the basic Super-Glide kit.


Portable Skating Facilities

Super-Glide portable artificial ice skating rinks have proven to be the most profitable for business owners. Some of our most popular and profitable commercial rink sizes range from 49 panels which yields a 28' x 56' (8.53m x 17.06m) a complete skating surface that can accommodate 30 skaters. Also popular is our 100-panel kit, which yields a giant 40' x 80' (12.19m x 24.38m) complete skating surface that can easily accommodate as many as 60 skaters at one time.

Our business facilities are designed for quick and easy installation in under 2 hours. Dis-assembly is even easier, normally taking less than an hour!
