For the past 30 years, owners and engineers have relied on IceMat® ice rink flooring by CALMAC when the best ice surface under any condition is needed. See partial listing of ice rinks.

What is IceMat? IceMat ice rink floor-grid systems are prefabricated permanent and indoor or outdoor portable ice rinks. Only IceMat ice rink systems offer the benefits of reduced construction and operating costs as well as a flexible design resulting in improved ice quality. IceMat can be installed in a matter of days and disassembled for storage just as quickly. The Hockey News reported that IceMat provides the best ice surface in the National Hockey League.

IceMat I and II are ideal for the following:

  • Temporary ice skating rink applications
  • Permanent ice skating rink applications
  • Skating and curling rinks
  • Luge tracks
  • Toboggan and ski runs
  • Speed skating oval

IceMat systems can be installed on any indoor or outdoor surface such as:

  • Tennis courts
  • Parking lots
  • Stages
  • Shopping and convention centers
  • Gym floors
  • Pools
  • Stadiums
  • Even bare ground

Its a Great Day for Hockey... Outdoors

IceMat II was selected for the 2008 Winter Classics "Ice Bowl", in Buffalo, New York. The game will be the NHL's second played outdoors. The ice is a 1½-inch, smooth-as-glass surface that will hold up to rain, above freezing temperatures and fit for the Sabres to host the Pittsburgh Penguins in the NHL Winter Classic outdoor game.
