NiceRink BracketsThe most unique and easiest method ever devised to make the perimeter of an outdoor, temporary ice rink. NiceRink® brackets were designed and engineered based on the knowledge we've gained from building and skating on our own outdoor rinks using the traditional sideboard and pounded stake method. The NiceRink® brackets eliminate the need to "build" a rink AND Hold the Boards in PLACE. They are easy to use and cut installation time by at least half. With that in mind, we know you'll enjoy the perfect support and clean aesthetic look of the bracket's design on your NiceRink. The NiceRink brackets spaced every four feet are designed to accommodate 3-14" of ice with no additional support needed. This is accomplished by using our Thermoformed Plastic Sideboards, or a 3/4" thick plywood in variable height panels of 12", 16" or 24" as required by your rink's location, design and how the rink will be used. The ability to adjust the board height makes it easier to erect a rink on uneven or sloping ground. The minimum board height is 12", with a maximum suggested board height without additional support of 24". This allows for as much as a 10" pitch (14" of ice) using the NiceRink backyard ice rink brackets alone.

For rinks placed on uneven or sloping ground, we have an integrated board support component molded into the bracket, where a 1" x 4" board can be added and attached for additional sideboard support. There is also a 3⁄4" diameter stake hole within the bracket to provide extra stability when needed. Frost penetrating 3⁄4" steel stakes are available in 18" and 24" lengths. Brackets should be placed every four feet along the perimeter. Place them every two feet apart and add 1 x 4's and/or steel stakes into the bracket for any deeper areas that exceed 14" of water/ice. If the water/ice gets up to or over 18" please contact us for additional board support recommendations.

For Lakes, Ponds and Hard Court Surfaces: We/You can make a simple modification to our NiceRink Brackets and you can then use the NiceRink Thermoformed Boards & NiceRink Brackets on Frozen Lakes, Ponds, Tennis Courts, Basketball Courts, or other hard surface area. By removing the spikes, the brackets will then lay flat on the surface and can then be staked in or sandbagged to help hold them in place. This will make a sturdy frame that will last for years to come.

Easy Up – Easy Down! The NiceRink® brackets are made with super UV resistant, treated poly compounds to last in excess of 15 years.
