Dedicated to continually advancing the technology available in the synthetic ice industry, Ice Rink Engineering and Manufacturing, LLC has developed NHL and IIHF Goal Creases for the EZ Glide 350 and EZ Glide 500 DoveTail surfaces. These crease systems require no paints, no stains, inks or welding and are comprised of solid core EZ Glide 350 or 500 material throughout the entire thickness. As such, skating performance is identical to all other EZ Glide surfaces and are designed to withstand heavy-duty practice and play. Installation is quick, easy and accomplished in the same manner as standard EZ Glide 350 and EZ Glide 500 DoveTail panels.
EZ Glide 350 and EZ Glide 500 Goal Creases should be installed on a firm and flat subfloor. The NHL and IIHF Crease dimensions are designed to industry specifications. The NHL Crease is manufactured within three EZ Glide 350 DL Dove Tail panels and has an installed footprint measuring 136 inches x 91 inches (3.454 meters x 2.311 meters). The IIHF Crease is manufactured within four EZ Glide 350 DL DoveTail panels and has an installed footprint measuring 181 inch x 91 inches (4.597 meters x 2.311 meters).
The NHL and IIHF Creases are offered in standard crease colors or with a less expensive two-color design. All crease options can be purchased as individual components, added to previously existing EZ Glide DoveTail surfaces, or purchased with additional surrounding panels.
