When buying an ice rink liner the general rule is to buy minimum an extra 2 feet on width and length, however the taller the boards the longer the length you will need so make sure you measure before ordering. We do not do custom sizing or cutting because that increases the cost to you.
Custom rinks cost more just like anything purchased custom will cost more. We therefore recommend you cut your rink to your liking if it is too big. Furthermore we do not include the lumber or any kits to finish your ice rink as we are a manufacturer of plastics, that’s our expertise, we live, breathe and manufacture 24/7 plastic.
