Ice Hockey Glass For Sale. Hockey glass is used in ice rinks and other indoor sports arenas to provide a safety barrier between fans and players. Hockey glass is tempered because it needs to be able to withstand the impact of flying pucks, balls and players crashing into it. In the rare event that it does break, this “safety glass” is designed to break into small, safe pieces rather than shards so that it doesn’t cut people.

In today’s market, there are two approved types of glass used in hockey rinks, tempered glass, and Plexiglas. Tempered glass goes through the process known as tempering, which involves the successive heating and cooling of glass to strengthen it. You can find tempered glass along the sides of the rink, the penalty box, and the team benches.
Hockey glass is most commonly made of a special safety plexiglass. The NHL and many local hockey arenas recently switched from tempered glass to plexiglass for player safety reasons. The main material in plexiglass is acrylic, which is formed in sheets. Plexiglass is shock-absorbing and a lightweight alternative to glass -- it’s plastic not glass.
I play hockey with glasses. If you are playing ice hockey, they will likely fog up. I suggest massaging a small amount of dish soap into the lenses before each skate, let that dry, and buff it out. I have tried a handful of wipes and they don't work well. I'd recommend you try on helmets with a cage and your glasses on.
