Backyard Ice Rink Brackets
The first major improvement in NiceRink® brackets since 1998! The most unique and easiest method ever devised to make the perimeter of an outdoor, temporary ice rink just got better. NiceRink® brackets were designed and engineered based on knowledge 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. They are easy to use and cut installation time by at least half. With that in mind, we know you’ll enjoy the practical purpose and clean look of the bracket’s design on your NiceRink. Spaced every four feet, NiceRink brackets accommodate 3"-14" of ice with no additional support needed. This is done using either our Thermoformed Plastic Sideboards or 3/4" thick plywood in variable height panels of 12", 16" or 24" depending on 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 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 on uneven or sloping ground, we have now added an extra board support component 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 areas with deeper than 14" of water/ice. If the water/ice gets up to or over 18" please contact us for additional board sup- port recommendations.
This makes a sturdy frame to last for years to come. Easy Up—Easy Down! NiceRink® brackets are made with super UV resistant, treated poly compounds to last over 12 years.
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 and NiceRink Brackets on Frozen Lakes, Ponds, Tennis Courts, Basketball Courts, or other hard surface area. By removing the spikes, the brackets can lay flat on the surface and be staked in or sandbagged to help hold them in place.
NiceRink Backyard Ice Rink Thermoformed Plastic Interlocking Sideboards
We are VERY excited to offer you a reengineered board with AWESOME advancements! They are the perfect perimeter board to use with your NiceRink Brackets. What have we done now? For one, we have now adapted an extra support board cavity that will integrate with the NiceRink bracket, to easily allow for extra "deep water support" to be added, by simply inserting a 1" x 4" board into the NiceRink plastic board, and locking it into the bracket. Secondly, our "NEW" manufacturing process allows for a much nicer, smoother, professional finish to the boards. The new design still maintains the same full hinge/interlocking design of 2009 and 2010 which is very easy to use and works awesomely, allowing the boards to be easily connected together for a nice, sturdy, long-lasting sideboard that locks together from "top to bottom."
The aluminum insert support bar along the back of the board is for added stability on sites that have more slope with deeper water/ice. This aluminum bar also extends over the top of the brackets to "LOCK" the boards to the brackets when fully seated into the brackets. No backside board attachment necessary - simply slide them into the NiceRink Brackets and you're good to go. NiceRink thermoformed boards allow a swivel/hinging action at each connection so every rink has rounded radius type corners, without the need for additional curved or flexible boards. The dual-purpose stacking buttons along the top of the boards work with the NiceRink BumperCaps. We've molded the stacking buttons at an optimum height from the top of the board to help secure the BumperCaps to the boards and help prevent them from blowing off. If you're looking for the serious backyard rink of a lifetime, the only way to go is with the NiceRink Thermoformed Plastic Boards. They're lighter weight, longer lasting and look SO much better than wood boards.
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 and 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.
Boards Measure: 18" tall, 4' long, 1" thick; Weight: 9 Lbs. (Less than half the weight of 16" x 4' x 3/4" piece of plywood.)
Backyard Ice Rink Liners
Ordering the NiceRink backyard ice rink liner is a very simple affair. After determining what size rink you'd like, add 5' to the length and 5' to the width to get your ice rink liner size. Examples: 35' x 45' rink requires a 40' x 50' liner, a 55' x 95' rink requires and 60' x 100' liner. This will give you 2.5' of liner around the entire perimeter of your rink to go up the inside edge of the boards to contain the water/ice. As mentioned in our NiceRink pricing, the sizes of liner available are dependent upon which liner type you select. NiceRink #1 material is available in widths of; 20',30', 35', 40',50',60',72' stock and then starting at 78' and every 6' thereafter by special order. When the width of a NiceRink #1 liner is over 70', the width must be the 6' increment. For NiceRink #3 material, the liners can be ordered in most widths of 6' increments starting with 24' wide up to 198' (Minimum length 50 feet). The NiceRink "CheapSkate" material is available in widths of 32',40', 50' & 60' stock. (80' & 100' available by request) If you have any questions, PLEASE call us @ 888-NiceRink for help!
* All of our liners are easily repaired and we do include a 25 foot roll of NiceRink ™ permanent patch tape with every liner and have underwater adhesive available, because "we know" accidents do happen.
