Real Ice Rinks

The truth!

We have an expert team who can help you create your dream! These days it doesn’t cost millions to open a real ice rink. It is often a misconception that an ice rink requires a special building built from the ground up to house the facility. The truth is, any clear span structure can house your rink, this opens up the possibilities for entrepreneurs and councils to open cost effective leisure rinks utilising existing unused buildings, any shape & any size! There is a growing market for ice rinks with the popularity of ITV’s “Dancing on ice” our aim is to help build smaller leisure rinks so more people can enjoy ice skating.

Here at Alpine Ice Rinks we can manufacture epdm, aluminium or plastic (Polyethylene) pipe tubing systems to suit the requirements of the installation.  As with our Synthetic rinks we offer a turnkey service that covers every aspect of your installation.

Our team of specialists, many of whom have owned and operated there own rinks, are on hand to advise on the best solutions available to build you a first class ice arena. We build our future on yours as we aim to achieve long effective working relationships.

Types of piping

Plastic HD PE Piping in sand or concrete
Used in permanent installations embedded in sand or concrete and pro touring rink systems.

EPDM Mats

Best suited for mobile rink systems.

Insulation

It is essential that real ice rinks have adequate insulation between the ice piping and the ground underneath. The insulation layer must be of adequate thickness and must be able to accept the load of the ice. We use Styrofoam insulation for its load bearing and insulating properties.

Permafrost Heating

It is essential that some form of permafrost prevention system is in place, a heat pad or air gap is required to prevent the ground beneath the rink from freezing.

Dasher boards & Barrier systems

Our custom designed barrier system manufactured from galvanised steel to suit the requirements of your rink, or Dasher boards, handrail & kicker plate are manufactured from PE 500 ultra high density molecular polyethylene with UV protection.
