Is the part above the wood on an NHL hockey rink made of glass or plastic?
There are two types of glass: Tempered glass - The sides of the rink (as well as the team benches and penalty boxes) are lined with seamless, tempered glass. Tempering is an annealing process, involving successive heating and cooling, and makes glass harder and less brittle. Plexiglas - The ends of the rink are lined with Plexiglas -- acrylic plastic sheets. The Plexiglas sheets are fitted together with supports that are mounted on the outside edge of the boards, so they don't interfere with play.

How do you drill holes in Plexiglas?
You can use the same drill you use for drilling metal. Answer: Yes you can use a metal drill bit, but you have to be very careful with Plexiglas when drilling, it can chip-out, break-out, or even crack the Plexiglas. The way to drill without no chip-out is to sandwich the Plexiglas between two pieces of wood. TIP: make sure the Plexiglas is held tight between the 2 pieces of wood when drilling.
