NiceRink Backyard Ice Rink Brackets

NiceRink brackets are the most unique and easiest method ever devised to make the perimeter of an outdoor, temporary ice rink. So unique in fact, they're patented. The 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. 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 esthetic look of the bracket's design on your NiceRink. The NiceRink brackets spaced every 4' 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 rinks 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 8" 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 placed on uneven or slopping ground, there is a 3/4" diameter stake hole within the bracket to provide extra stability when needed. Frost penetrating stakes are available in 18" and 24" lengths. Brackets should be placed every four feet along the perimeter. Place them every 2 feet apart and add 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.

NiceRink™ Backyard Rink Thermoformed Plastic Boards

NiceRink Backyard Ice Rink Thermoformed Plastic Interlocking Sideboards

NiceRink, has improved the plastic thermoformed boards and made them even better than before for 2009 to use in conjunction with your nicerink brackets. The new 2009 improvement has an even better hinge/interlocking design which is even more user friendly than the 2008 model, allowing the NiceRink boards to be more easily connected together for a nice sturdy long lasting sideboard which has further improvements to keep the boards better locked together at the bottom.   With the aluminum insert support bar along the back of the board for added stability for rink sites that have more slope with deeper water/ice, that extends over the top of the brackets to "LOCK" the brackets to the boards when fully seated into the brackets. No backside board attachment necessary. NiceRink thermoformed boards allow a swivel/hinging action so anyone can create radius type corners, without the need for additional curved or flexible boards. The dual purpose stacking buttons along the top of the boards also act in conjunction with the NiceRink bumper caps. By molding the stacking buttons at an optimum height from the top of the board they aid in helping to secure your Bumper Caps 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 & NiceRink Brackets on Frozen Lakes, Ponds, Tennis Courts, Basketball Courts, or other hard surface area.
