Unparalleled frame design. Whether you choose steel or aluminum, our dasherboards are engineered to stand up to any level of play. Unlike other systems that use thin form bent metal, our dasherboards are fabricated using only structural angles, channels and tubing. This creates superior strength and durability, while still maintaining a level of flexibility for player safety.
Quality materials. Rink Systems only buys and installs the highest quality virgin materials for our dasherboard facing, kickplate and caprail. This assures your system will stand up to repeated impact by not chipping, cracking or fading.
Exceptional rust protection. After fabrication, our steel frame dasherboards are first cleaned in an acid bath, then submerged in molten zinc. This hot dip galvanizing process forms zinc/iron intermetalic layers on all surfaces, inside and out, creating a lasting barrier against rust and corrosion.
Superior fastening. All polyethylene facing, kickplate and caprail are attached using color matched screws with locking nuts through slotted framework holes, where possible. Slotted holes allow the facing materials to expand and contract naturally with the temperature changes to prevent stress and cracking. Locking nuts provide a secure and long lasting hold while preventing the screws from stripping out or breaking over time.
Precision adjustable hinges. All our gates are supported by heavy duty hinges with a 3/4" stress proof pin that can easily handle even the heaviest load. They are CNC machined to exact tolerances and equipped with a stainless steel ball bearing for ease of movement. Fully serviceable and fully adjustable, both vertically and horizontally, these hinges will assure that your gates will always remain true and level.
Proven gate latch system. Only Rink Systems uses double bar gate latches creating two positive latching points for all players and access gates. With fewer parts, they are easy to maintain and will always assure your gates are secure and plumb.
Control - Beginning to end! All Rink Systems' dasherboards are designed, fabricated and assembled from start to finish in our own Albert Lea, Minnesota manufacturing facility. Having total control over every process assures that you will receive only the highest quality equipment and an exceptional value.
