Puckboard Best Rink Accessories

The TRU Board System was developed to compliment the TRU Corner System. The TRU Board System features 4′ modular set up with a real rink look. When built in it’s modular format it becomes a *Presto Install. All modular components when installed on your grass may require shims, wedges or lifts to assist in your straight and level line as you work your way down your rink length and width. This is just the way it works on your imperfect irregular lawn and believe us when we say no ones lawn is perfect.  As seen in our images complete with shims you will barely notice any site imperfections. The TRU Corner and Board System is designed for yards with a **1% grade or less. ***Safety during assembly is paramount. ****Imperfect Lawns.

The one piece 2017/18 TRU Corner System with a 60″ arc length has seen 3 years of product development. This ultimate product features it’s own Liner Protection System, Presto Install with modular set up, durability and functionality with the stack-able TRU Corner components for different height applications. Fasten rope light or string light in your back yard or in a public setting  and attach sponsor advertising to  the built in TRU Corner Wiggle Wire to help offset your costs and add to the wow factor. It’s Real Rinks for Real Yards. It’s for you!

*Presto Install:

A quick and easy set up with maximum results for presentation and curb appeal. Your original assembly and build efforts that take place in your first months previous to rink season sets you up for your Presto Install  later  in the same year or in year #2. At first rink seasons end you will number your modular components and record any details pertinent to set up for the following season. Set up the following season will be quick and easy. Of course this is all relative to your storage, assembly, removal and documentation of your modular components. We measure areas like distance from back deck and drive way to document for exact install or improved tweak of location in succeeding years for Presto Installs.

** 1% grade

A 1% grade over a 50′ rink length will amount to 8″ water/ice in deep end with a bare minimum of 2″ of ice in your shallow end.   This is why we prefer the grade be less than 1% for this amazingly stunning rink result in your backyard or in your public areas.


Safety during assembly is paramount.  It is noted the rink builders responsibility for safety during set up solely  resting with him/her. All edges and  corners are to be smooth, flat and have seams that meet perfectly. Proper equipment needs to be worn with every appearance on your Ultimate Rink and while enjoying the TRU Rink System.
