Why Glice synthetic ice?
Glice is the preferred synthetic ice among professional athletes because it provides an exceptionally realistic skating experience, along with personalized service and a global support network. Our tongue-and-groove panels are the choice of experts, thanks to their superior quality compared to puzzle-style (dovetail) connections.
What is a Glice rink?
Glice’s premium-quality eco-rinks are fully customizable and consist of synthetic ice panels and a carefully curated range of high-quality accessories, including dasher boards, ice skates, skate sharpeners, skating aids, and curling stones.
Glice is used at professional sport facilities, such as hockey training centers, as well as in the commercial sector at hotels, zoos, shopping malls and other public spaces.) Glice Pads for your backyard, basement, or garage provide options for home use. Glice can be purchased or rented, with different leasing and financing options available.
What is synthetic ice?
Synthetic ice, also known as artificial ice, plastic ice, fake ice, polymer ice or silicon ice, is a substitute material for refrigerated ice used in ice skating rinks. Synthetic rinks typically consist of interlocking synthetic ice panels, connected by either a tongue-and-groove or puzzle-style (dovetail) system. However, the manufacturing methods and resulting quality of synthetic ice can vary widely.

Synthetic ice price and cost
The cost of synthetic ice can vary widely depending on the quality of the product. However, it’s essential to distinguish between the price and the true cost. While the price is what’s listed on the ticket, the true cost encompasses everything you invest in the rink over its lifetime. This includes factors such as the cost impact of increased shavings and more frequent skate blade sharpening, as well as missed opportunities due to clients being dissatisfied with a subpar rink.
We highly recommend thoroughly reviewing the different artificial ice rink products on the market, before deciding on any of them. When analyzing synthetic ice, it’s important to consider gliding behavior, the amount of shavings and flaking the surface produces, as well as how often you have to sharpen the skates.
Glice rinks for sale or rent
At Glice, we provide a range of synthetic ice options for sale or rental purposes. Synthetic ice rentals are becoming increasingly popular, particularly for events such as product launches, movie premieres, and holiday parties. We also supply used synthetic ice rinks, which have only been rented out once and are completely refurbished.
Outdoor or indoor ice rink?
Glice synthetic ice rinks can be set up both indoors and outdoors. Packaged and delivered on palettes of 25-30 panels, our mobile synthetic ice rinks are highly portable and easy to install.
