How to store a synthetic ice rink?

After use of your synthetic ice rink, it is time to store it. First of all, it is very important to make sure that all material is clean before storing to avoid any surprises later.

In addition, it is recommended that it be stored indoors to avoid exposing the material to adverse weather conditions such as humidity or dirt that could deteriorate the material.

Once this is taken into account, the ideal is to palletize all the material. Synthetic ice panels can be easily stacked in pallets and ratchet straps should be used to secure them. Once this step is finished, protect the pallets with panels by using cardboard or wrap them around with protective film to avoid possible damage or dirt.It’s that simple!
