KwikRink V HOME

KwikRink V HOME panels offer a similar feel to our original self-lubricating formula, but with two minor enhancements, including a slight boost in our proprietary glide agent. This surface is geared toward the homeowner, and will work great indoors (ideal for a garage or basement hockey rink) or for smaller outdoor projects. The 4’ x 4’ panels (8’ x 4’ panels available by request) are easier for residential clients to handle, assemble, and disassemble than the PRO version. These panels are designed to outperform budget fake hockey ice options on the market, with only a slightly higher price point.

In the comparison chart – HOME comes in 8’ x 4’ and 4’x 4’. Customization is now available for sizing but not markings like lines, goal creases etc. (PRO only)

We are beyond thrilled with our rink from kwikrink. The team was very professional to work with and accommodated everything we needed. Everything was custom done based on the space we were working with. Installation work was quick and went smoothly. We are very happy with it and our kids are getting a lot of use out of it. Even our 2 year old is learning to skate on it :-). I would highly recommend these folks!
