On any hard, flat surface. Skate Anytime panels are all-weather durable and can be used inside or outside. Basement, Garage, Driveway, Deck, Patio, etc. are all terrific locations for your skating surface.
Installing the panels requires only a rubber mallet. Each panel weighs only 3lbs, so they’re easy to move. It’s so easy a kid can do it!

Very little maintenance is required! All you need to do is keep the surface clean. A sponge mop with water and little Skate Anytime glide/cleaner does the trick. Outdoor rinks can be rinsed with a garden hose. If the panels become dirty, a power washer can be used to deep clean the surface.
