With features and benefits like these, it’s no wonder the Crystaplex® ice dam is fast becoming the ice dam of choice for multi-purpose arenas:

  • Strong stainless steel construction is resistant to ice build up or pressure
  • Uniformity and strength means puck rebound is consistent
  • Accommodates 5/8” or 1/2” tempered glass
  • Replaceable HDPE kick plate uses nylon fasteners to attach to the ice dam
  • Double set of integrated dasher anchors provide 100% backup should an anchor become stripped or unusable
  • Insulated to minimize frost buildup or edge thawing
  • Dasher anchors are easily repaired or replaced
  • Designed for installation on new rinks or retrofitted on existing
  • Laser measurements add to dimensional accuracy and higher quality
  • Stainless steel offers superior corrosion performance and higher ice quality

Poly Ice Dam

Popular for years in multi-purpose arenas, this natural white high density polyethylene dam has features not found in other ice dams:

  • Cost-effective
  • Light weight and easy to install
  • A good insulator
  • Suitable for skate traffic

Commonly used in 7” widths to match dasher board panel widths and available in several thicknesses. In addition to the dasher anchors, the poly ice dam requires an additional 3 anchors per 8 feet. Available in 1“ or 2” thickness.
