Indoor or Outdoor – We’ve Got You Covered
We offer a choice between indoor home rinks and commercial grade outdoor rinks — both manufactured with the same exceptional Swiss engineering process known for its precision and superior quality.
Our indoor Glice Home Rinks use a sophisticated Smart Lock system that easily snaps into place. They are also 100% mobile, enabling you to break down your indoor rink and place it in storage when not in use. You can also rearrange your indoor sheets to adapt to the size and shape that fits your needs at the time you need them. Our rinks are smart and easy to use!
Our outdoor Glice rinks use a superior commercial-grade tongue and groove system offered exclusively for outdoor use. The tongue and groove system locks your sheets on all four sides securely into place, preventing spontaneous lifting due to temperature changes. The system also prevents dirt and debris from lodging in between the artificial ice sheets. That is important for outdoor rink maintenance and skating safety. Glice is the only product on the market that offers this exceptional system.

Glice Rinks — The Best Synthetic Ice Rink Available Today!
Swiss Designed Glice Ultra Glide Technology – We have designed a perfect combination of glide and grip, making our rinks the fastest and least friction synthetic rinks in the world. It’s like skating on real ice! That’s because Glice rinks use a manufacturing process called “sintering” where pellets are crushed under high pressure and heat, giving your rinks and pads the ultimate surface for superior durability and glide. It reduces ice shavings and blade abrasion making it the only synthetic rink that keeps blades at an optimal sharpness for longer skate times.
Sintered vs. Extruded Process
Why It Matters
Glice – Sintered Process:
- Pellets are crushed under high pressure and heat.
- Self-lubricating pellets are added during the sintering process. Mixed evenly throughout the thickness of each sheet.

- Abrasion resistant.
- Stays whiter under all conditions.
- Preferred by pro hockey players, figure skaters, and companies in 85+ countries.

Others – Extruded Process:
- Inconsistent, uneven surface.

- More abrasions and shavings.
- May turn yellow over time.
- Less preferred due to slower glide and inconsistent surfaces.
- Most other companies share manufacturing facilities in various locations, including China.
