(click to enlarge images)

ArmorDeck Ice (TD3), Signature's premium ice conversion cover system, makes it easy to increase your ice arena's revenue by hosting non-skating events. Just imagine being able to hold concerts, trade shows, graduations, even weddings - without compromising your skating surface. Designed to handle the heaviest loads and provide the ultimate in stability and ice protection, ArmorDeck Ice is the most advanced engineered ice arena flooring system on the market today. ArmorDeck Ice creates an attractive, yet sturdy surface while protecting the ice beneath.

ArmorDeck Ice is a large panel system that features an integrated connection system with optional side and corner cam locks and unsurpassed liquid spill protection. Each section has a useable surface area of 42” x 42” and is 2 inches thick, thus providing maximum rigidity and surface protection.

No system has been as comprehensively engineered to handle the rigors of concert and arena use, and no system incorporates the functionality, features, and capabilities of the ArmorDeck Ice system.

When you purchase an ice arena cover system from Signature, you know that you are backed by the world’s largest stadium, arena, and special event flooring company. More importantly, you will have access to a team of professionals that understands ice rinks, has actually installed floors in the most prestigious arenas and accommodates your specific needs. ArmorDeck Ice arena flooring is manufactured to the highest quality standards and is backed by an extended multi-year guarantee.

Unique Modular Connection System

Unlike other flooring systems, Signature’s ArmorDeck Ice features an integrated connection system which is self-aligning and provides ease of installation and tremendous strength.

Sections are simply laid into place and self-align using Signature’s proprietary hook and loop fastening system, which actually guide panels into place. For added strength, sections may be locked together using proprietary plastic cam lock system located on the sides and corners, although in many applications the basic hook and loop system will suffice and the cam need not be engaged.

Industry Leading Time Saving Design

The combination of extra large panels with the self-aligning hook and loop connection system make ArmorDeck Ice the fastest deploying ice arena cover system on the market. Panels simply snap into place like giant puzzle pieces. A small, unskilled crew can install this modular flooring in less than two hours. For additional stability, it takes just a few more moments to close the proprietary plastic cam locks located at the sides and corners of the ArmorDeck Ice panels.

Available in Custom Colors

Unlike other ice rink covers, Signature’s ArmorDeck Ice (TD3) flooring is available in custom colors to match your ice rink décor, team colors, or municipal color scheme. Customers can select our standard, easy to clean Putty Gray or Light Gray colors which complement nearly any design scheme, or you can opt to have our manufacturing team match just about any PMS hue that you choose.

Imagine installing an ice rink cover that matches your seats and facility colors, creating a unified look for your next event. Multiple colors can even be alternated to create themes, borders, and other effects

Protects Ice and Will Not Slip and Slide

ArmorDeck Ice arena flooring is specifically designed to protect the ice rink surface underneath, employing a series of innovative features that truly set it apart from its outdated competition.

ArmorDeck Ice is made from the best quality High-Density Polyethylene (HDPE) post-industrial recycled plastic, reinforced with additives for increased strength, flex modulus, and izod impact value.

A bi-directional ribbing system contained within each module includes four full-height ribs and five half-height ribs distributes heavy weights evenly to prevent shifting or dammage to the delicate ice surface.

ArmorDeck Ice panels overlap along the edges, incorporating a specialized containment channel designed to capture stray liquid from spills or mopping, providing the best protection available to your ice.

Beautifies Your Facility

Because of ArmorDeck Ice’s unique smooth top surface, customizable colors, and seamless finished look, your rink will always look great when covered. For a finished look and smooth transition to your ArmorDeck floor, don't forget to order our sloped edge peices with added traction.

Event producers, planners, architects, and designers will be excited about the look and feel that this quality floor provides.

Easy to Clean and Maintain

ArmorDeck Ice is designed to be easy to clean and to require minimal maintenance. Our system avoids surface channels which dirt, debris, cigarette butts, or other troublesome garbage can get stick to.

Each panel has an anti-slip sandblast finish that is easy to clean using standard cleaning materials such as mops, brooms, and water. There are no unsightly patterns or ridges to catch dirt on this uniform and consistent modular surface.

Will Not Warp, Crack, or Delaminate

Unlike wooden or fiberboard systems, ArmorDeck Ice flooring will not warp, rot, crack, or delaminate. ArmorDeck Ice is impervious to water and other contaminants and is designed to handle temperature fluctuations, moisture, and humidity.

Any veteran of the ice rink business is familiar with older fibrous ice floor conversion products and knows how these systems get stained, create dust, and actually separate and tear apart over time. These older systems have a tendency to stick to the ice as a result of natural temperature fluctuations. Tape is often required to keep these sections together and every time such tape is removed, a section of the fiber board is likely to be removed with it. Of course, with ArmorDeck Ice none of these issues are a concern. The system is designed to be clean, easy to maintain, easy to install, and trouble free.

Handles Heavy Traffic and Payloads

ArmorDeck Ice is designed to handle the heaviest payloads and traffic that can be expected at any sized arena. From concert equipment and staging and basketball floors to glass and dasher board carts, ArmorDeck Ice is designed to withstand up to 45,000 lbs (static) per square foot.

ArmorDeck’s proprietary plastic cam lock system is stronger than alternate cam lock systems and provides superior strength and long term durability. Its integrated hook and loop system provides additional torsional stability and strength and enables ArmorDeck to handle the heaviest of loads.

More importantly, ArmorDeck Ice is designed to handle moving weight, which requires a different set of functional features than simple static weights. ArmorDeck Ice will not buckle or bunch up under forklift traffic and the modules’ traction design prevents drift and other movement. Unlike older modular systems, ArmorDeck Ice doesn’t need to be handled gently. Simply do whatever you would do if your ice were removed - drive, turn, and stop. ArmorDeck Ice can handle the traffic.
