Homasote ICE DECK

Homasote ICE DECK is a structural panel that can be placed directly over indoor ice for temporary conversion of an ice rink for other activities. Once in place, a wooden floor can be placed on the ICE DECK. ICE DECK is also used for application over artificial turf, gymnasium floors and tennis courts as a temporary cover. The natural resiliency of Homasote Company's ICE DECK help protect both the surface underneath it and the surface placed over it.

ICE DECK is composed of two plies of Homasote® structural building board, bonded with a water-resistant glue under extreme pressure, processed with moisture-resistant ingredients, compressed into high-density structural panels 1" thick, then trimmed to size to form easy-handling 4' x 8' panels.
