We sell two different types of panels: Glice Home (0.4" thick) and Glice Commercial Grade (0.5" thick). Our Glice Home panels are optimally sized to fit any area of your home up to 500ft^2. Each Glice Home panel measures 23.97" long x 23.97" wide x 0.4" thick and weighs 6 lbs. Our Glice Commercial grade panels (0.5" thick), designed for rinks up to 1000ft^2, are 6.2' long x 3.2' wide x 0.5" thick and weighs 50.7lbs.
For home rinks or commercial projects above 1000ft^2, we offer a wide range of synthetic ice products and accessories (dasher boards, skating aids, skate sharpeners, etc...). Kindly contact us for more information.
Depending on the usage, location and level of maintenance, the life-span of the product is significant. Our Glice Home panels come with a 10 year lifespan and a 5 year warranty, while our Glice Commercial Grade (0.5" thick) panels have a 12 years lifespan and we provide a 6 year warranty. It's important to keep in mind that all Glice sheets are reversible which can significantly extend the life-span.
When we started Glice 16 years ago, we had to make a choice between building our rink as cheaply as possible or build quality into the rinks for service, durability and your long lasting enjoyment. We decided that it would be easier to explain our price one time than it would be to apologize for quality forever.
We spent the first 8 years refining and developing our material formula and manufacturing process to far out perform every other synthetic ice manufacturer. With our unique Glice formula, extremely high grade materials and highly precise, slow european manufacturing process, we are able to offer the most consistent and best skating performance along with the longest durability in the industry. This relentless focus on quality, life-span and performance is why Glice is priced as a premium product in the synthetic ice industry.
With every rink purchase we included a complementary 34 oz (1 liter) bottle of Glice Care, our proprietary cleaning and maintenance solution.
Yes, the same conventional ice skates (both hockey and figure) are used on Glice.
Yes, Glice can be installed outdoors and in any climate. We recommend covering your outdoor rink with a tarp when it’s not in use. This will help you keep your Glice® surface clean and reduces cleaning cycles.
Rain or snow does not damage the Glice surface and neither does water decrease its functionality. When it snows, just remove the snow and the skating can continue. Snow or big puddles of water can be swiped off with a mop and ice layers on the rink can be removed with a snow shovel or with a power washer with hot water.
No. Due to a very specialized fabrication process, our panels are auto-lubricating and offer an excellent balance of glide and grip and overall skating experience. Depending on how often your rink is used, you can apply Glice Care on the surface to nourish your Glice.
The beauty of Glice synthetic ice is that its maintenance is really simple. While maintenance is straight forward, it must be performed regularly to ensure a great skating experience and impeccable looks of your Glice surface. Here’s what we recommend:
Indoor (Low Use):
Weekly – Vacuum cleaning
Monthly – Floor scrubbing
Yearly – Pressure washer
Indoor (Heavy Use):
Daily – Vacuum cleaning
Biweekly – Floor scrubbing
Quarterly - Pressure washer
Outdoor (Low Use):
Daily – Vacuum cleaning
Weekly – Floor scrubbing
Quarterly –Pressure washer
Outdoor (Heavy Use):
Daily – Vacuum cleaning (2x)
Weekly – Floor scrubbing
Monthly – Pressure washer
In general outdoor installations get dirty a bit more quickly since they are more exposed to particles. We therefore recommend covering all outdoor installations with a tarp when they are not in use. This will help you to get the most out of your Glice surface.
For more detailed information on maintenance please refer to our Glice Installation, Maintenance and Operation Guide, provided to you upon contacting Glice.
There is no need to worry about scratches. These marks will affect neither functionality nor skating experience. Glice is a material of very high density and the scratches occur only superficially, so they never go deep into the surface. Therefore resurfacing is not necessary. Furthermore, Glice embedded internal lubricant is consistent throughout the whole sheet which ensures there is no degradation of skating performance throughout the lifetime of the product, even when scratched.
No! One of the great things about Glice panels is that you can use them on both sides - they are fully reversible! This can essentially double the lifespan of your rink.
