Keeping athletes healthy, safe, and as free from injury as possible is a direct result of the design and performance of the sub-floor system, specifically the Force Reduction, Vertical Deflection, and Area Deflection of the surface. These are specific performance characteristics that are individually and independently tested.
The amount of impact force that the surface is able to absorb. Whatever the surface doesn’t absorb, the remaining impact force is absorbed by the athlete.
The amount of bending (of the floor) directly beneath the athletes’ feet. There is a correlation between Force Reduction and Vertical Deflection.
Area of Deflection
Controlling the “trampoline effect” that naturally takes place when you have a resilient sub-floor beneath a hardwood surface. Basketball and volleyball are sports where multiple athletes play in close proximity and land within fractions of a second from each other. The goal is for all athletes to experience the same resilient benefits, and a high performance surface will accomplish this.
MEETING DIN STANDARDS
Connor has numerous flooring systems that meet 2001 DIN, which still remains the most stringent athletic performance testing standard in the world today.
"On behalf of the NCAA, we want to thank you for Connor's outstanding support by supplying the basketball courts for the...NCAA Men's and Women's Final Fours."
