Indoors or outdoors! The best base for your rink is a hard, flat and level surface. By having this as a foundation, it optimizes the performance of the panels along with your overall skating area. A cement base, sport court, or flat asphalt/pavement provide the ideal surface for your panel. If you do not have this, there are some options to build varying grades of wooden structures (skeleton or decking platforms) with temporary or permanent supports. Extreme Glide panels can not be set up directly on grass.
Extreme Glide Synthetic Ice can be enjoyed year-round and in all temperatures. Extreme Glide panels are UV protected and stress relieved. They will not degrade in sunlight or warp deteriorate as temperature increases or decreases.
For outdoor installations, we recommend covering your surface with a tarp when it is not being used to protect the synthetic ice panels from dirt, dust, pollen, sap from trees, bird droppings, and leaves. When leaves become wet they will leach colours and stain any surface they come in contact with.
