Synthetic Ice Skating Rink

Posted: October 18, 2007 in Cool Projects, Synthetic Ice HDPE

Though we don’t actually have the ‘How to” instructions on this one, we wanted to share this cool idea. Just using HDPE sheets (www.redwoodplastics.com) you can make your own skating rink. They also have UHMW sheets & Polycarbonate/acrylic sheets to make the boards & glass. I guess you can make your own size & shape rink with these products. Here are a couple of pictures of what you can do:

  1. We are actually in the process of testing this product.. UHMW can be used without lubricant as well but you may last longer with a coating. The sheet would need to be replaced depending on how often you used it. Sorry we aren’t more help with this… I can’t give you a definitive answer until our testing is complete.
