Can-Ice provides the ultimate in performance available today from a synthetic ice surface.  Our design goal was simple yet challenging - create a surface that looked like real ice....performed like real ice....skated like real ice and provided puck response like real ice.

Synthetic ice has been around for decades yet has not gained widespread acceptance or come into everyday use due to poor product performance. Our evaluation of existing products resulted in disappointment with the skating experience, puck response, ease of installation and ongoing maintenance requirements. Most systems are “cutting board” materials re-purposed and called a “synthetic ice” system! Many require “glide enhancers” and or “special cleaning solutions” as well as “flake or shed” from use (creating more maintenance and potential damage to HVAC systems) So, we set out to create a product that performs like real ice - that's Can-Ice. 

Access to ice time is always a challenge. Weather and seasonality limit the availability of natural ice outdoors while the capital expenditure and monthly operating costs make indoor rinks in seemingly short supply and high prices to access.

Can-Ice is the official synthetic ice provider to HOCKEY CANADA.  We share the passion to enhance the game and grow the sport. Can-Ice provides the ultimate skating and puck handling experience. Easy to install and break down.  Easy to maintain.
