REALice at Barclays Center in New York City

REALice at Barclays Center in New York City

The Barclays Center in New York City, home to the New York Islanders, have been using the REALice system since the 2017/2018 season and will continue to make their ice with REALice.

Barclays Center is the next arena after Rogers Arena in Vancouver, BC using the REALice system in the NHL.


The REALice water treatment system eliminates the need for hot water when building and resurfacing ice.

Easy-to-install and completely maintenance free, REALice is a brilliant example of fluid dynamics, removing the micro-air bubbles from water that causes brittle ice without using chemicals, filters, membranes or any additional consumables.

With REALice’s cold water resurfacing technology, you’ll make durable, clear ice that your user groups will love, and substantially lower your utility costs too.

Ice made with REALice has proven to be 46% harder than ice made with hot water. See our ice hardness report from Southern Edison California.
