synthetic ice rink installation

The success or failure of any synthetic ice rink depends on two main factors – the quality of sliding and the reliability of the connection of synthetic ice panels.

Thanks to our tireless work to improve both factors for more than 20 years, our Super-Glide panels have the highest sliding quality in the industry, and the reliability and durability of their installation allows them to be operated without problems for many years and even decades.

That’s why Super-Glide synthetic ice has been the #1 choice for professional hockey and skating training facilities around the world for over two decades. That’s why it perfectly works for public skating and home ice rinks.

The right choice of synthetic ice requires a deeper knowledge of the topic, and not just the price of one or the other. Synthetic ice surfaces are not the same, just as cars are not the same. So is the price of synthetic ice.

We invite you to browse our webpages that you can make an informed decision about the best synthetic ice for YOU.



“SLICK” is designed as an alternative to real ice; it is not cold and does not need electricity.  Our Interlocking Puzzle Piece Has 55 connection points per panel, allowing for proper expansion and contraction of our product in any environment. Maximum Connection points in all directions ensure panels do not pop up or warp in these conditions over time. The connections are precision cut creating a perfectly seamless surface , resembling real ice. SLICK synthetic ice is a specifically modified polymer that allows the skate blade to glide smoothly over its surface. All skating elements can be performed. Hockey stops, deep edge cuts, stick handling, spins, jumps, anything done on ice can be done on “SLICK”.


Global Synthetic Ice uses premium high-quality raw materials and additives including UV protection so your rink will not change color and lose its chemical stability over time. This ensures your rink will not warp in outdoor setting and continue to have that ice like glide for years to come.

Longevity has never been an issue, Super-Glide recreational synthetic ice rinks have a life expectancy of 15+ years. Home rinks are passed down through generations.

Seamless Ice

Global Synthetic Ice uses patented Super-Glide "dovetail" interlocking technology to create a seamless surface - the same technique that has been commonly used originally in woodwork for thousands of years. Another benefit of dovetail technology is the simplicity of assembling with the use of just a rubber mallet. Super-Glide synthetic ice rinks successfully work all year round providing seamless ice-skating surface for the best and safe skating experience.

“First Line Training Center owns close to 14,000 sq ft of GSI’s Super-Glide synthetic ice. There is no faster, more durable, more ice like product anywhere in the market. Period. The glide is amazing, the seams are perfect, and the company’s customer service is first class”
"I think the community as a whole absolutely loved it. The only complaint we received was that people would have liked the rink to be a little bit bigger. During the week, it was great, but during the weekend, when it was super busy, it would have been better if it was larger. All in all, we are extremely pleased."

"Love this product. That’s why I can attest that after having 5 different synthetic ice products in our facility that the new Super-Glide product is the best! There is a reason why it is in the largest facility on the East Coast and West Coast and Phoenix area. If anyone has any questions about Super-Glide, feel free to reach out to me. Or, if you are in the Bay Area stop by Extra Hour Hockey Training facility and try it out yourself."
"With my many experiences with synthetic ice, I can undoubtedly say that Global Synthetic Ice has the most realistic ice in the world. After about 10 minutes of practice, I was skating just as fast and smooth as real ice. I couldn’t believe how easy it was to do all my usual jumps and spins. I wish I had my own synthetic ice so I could practice at home and escape the cold. The ice really did feel great!"
"Our family entertainment center N’Ice Park with Super-Glide ice skating rink opened in July 2020 is successfully operating all year round in the open air. Ice skating in Portugal, where it never even snows, this pastime is not very popular, let alone in the summer, and now there is a year-round outdoor ice skating rink. After two years of operation, the ice rink looks like new and continues to bring a lot of fun and joy, especially for children! Thank you, Global Synthetic Ice!"
"After a long search for the best ice rink and talking with different manufacturers, we chose Global Synthetic Ice and now couldn't be any happier with their Super-Glide ice rink. And most of all, our son Eaton is happy, who loves hockey very much skated 3-4 times a week until covid started and all the rinks closed. Thank you, Global Synthetic Ice! "

FAQ:Installation of Super-Glide synthetic ice rink

We have led this industry since 2000, if it did not work, we would not be recording record sales and growing year after year. “SLICK” is designed as an alternative to real ice; it is not cold and does not need electricity.
SLICK synthetic ice is a specifically modified polymer that allows the skate blade to glide smoothly over its surface. All skating elements can be performed. Hockey stops, deep edge cuts, stick handling, spins, jumps, anything done on ice can be done on “SLICK”.

First, we do not say we are the best, everyone who skates on SLICK does. With over 20 years of science and technological advances in chemical glide ingredients, pure resins, and cutting-edge design we have created the best possible surface in the industry.  SLICK synthetic ice has earned the reputation as the best hockey and figure skating training product available today - check professionals' testimonials.
Super-Glide is a high-tech plastic that you can skate on practically like on real ice. Super-Glide® SLICK is a synthetic ice skating surface composed of a proprietary blend of polymers that permit a skate blade to glide as smoothly as on real ice. Correct density is very important, too hard and the blade slips out, too soft and the surface is very slow, Super-Glide is just right.

Skating on ice means gliding on a thin layer of water as the blade’s friction generates heat and melts the ice surface. Skating on Super-Glide® causes the same friction and heat, which releases lubricants chemically engineered into Super-Glide®. This sets Super-Glide® synthetic ice apart from all competitors. Older synthetic ice surfaces required silicone lubricants. When skate blades cut through the silicone and hit dry spots, skaters felt undesirable "chatter" that increased friction and made skating harder. Super-Glide®’s unique formula eliminates "chatter" and allows the blade to glide smoothly.

Regular retail price of Super-Glide Slick synthetic ice panel sized 4' x 4' is $169. 
We do understand how important price is, yet QUALITY and RELIABILITY are and should be priorities especially for training and commercial ice rinks. Shopping by price is a major cause of ice rink failures.
*Facility Discounts and Resale Programs also available.

Tests conducted at Canadian Super-Glide synthetic ice rinks skating 200 skaters per day and intensively practicing hockey and figure skating, gave a life expectancy from 10 to 15 years. Home rinks are passed down through generations.
