A note about plywood:
24" by 3/4 thick plywood boards are great for a hockey rink too but a plywood rink will require more brackets than are provided in our backyard rink kits. If you are building a plywood rink, please let us know. For plywood, figure a minimum bracket spacing of every 4 feet to compensate for the flex in the boards.
Choosing The Right Kit
When choosing among the different sized backyard hockey rink kits, keep in mind that your rink does not need to be the exact size of the Iron Sleek ice rink kits listed below. You just need to make sure that you choose a kit that has a big enough liner. For example if you want to build a 28' x 46' rink, the right kit for you is the Iron Sleek 30' x 50' rink kit. If you want to build a 36' x 65' foot rink a 40' x 70' foot Iron Sleek Rink Kit is for you. Basically, the rink you want must be able to fit completely inside of the rink kit that you buy. This is definitely a case of bigger is better. A little extra liner is always a good thing.
If you want to get started with something smaller, our Standard Box Kits are a great option. Since everything fits in one box, it ships efficiently and we price it right for you. The Box Kits come in 2 sizes, 20' x 20' and 20' x 46'. They are our best value and our best seller in both Canada and the US. You can easily upgrade your rink next year if you choose to expand.
Iron Sleek was founded by two hockey fans who wanted to create a better way to set up a backyard rink. Kits at the time came with sub-par bracing and head-scratching instructions that elicited more groans than glee. Iron Sleek backyard rink kits are different.
To start with, our brackets are 100% steel, not wood, plastic or aluminum, and have been specially designed by the Iron Sleek founders (who happen to be engineers). They withstand varying temperatures without cracking. They hold rigid in frozen soil and they can be used with lumber, plywood, or custom boards. This eliminates the need to find the exact right bracket size to meet the exact size lumber pieces you have on hand. The steel construction also means the brackets won't split as they are being hammered into the ground because they are strong, yet knife profiled.
No more running to the hardware store mid-project!
What could be better? How about installation? If this is your first time setting up a rink or you don't trust your abilities, contact Iron Sleek for a custom rink design and rendering. We also perform installs locally in the Chicagoland area and we have installers in select regions in Canada and the US.
