Safety

 

Sports Flooring Safety

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 floor.  These are specific performance characteristics that are individually and independently tested.

Force Reduction

The amount of impact force that the floor is able to absorb.  Whatever the floor doesn’t absorb, the remaining impact force is absorbed by the athlete. 

Vertical Deflection

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 floor.  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 floor 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.
