CINCINNATI-- Robbins Sports Surfaces will shift its production exclusively to the manufacture of an engineered maple floor featuring pre-assembled, industrially strengthened wood strips that are a uniform 7-foot length.

Robbins has marketed the Continuous Strip XL for 10 years. Continuous Strip XL is used at the Indianapolis Indoor Sports Center, the University of Hawaii and other pro, college and amateur venues.

The company will stop production of the traditional basketball floor, known as the Random Length floor. According to the company, the Continuous Strip XL will require less sanding at installation than more traditional floors.

The company’s plant in White Lake, Wis. will produce Continuous Strip XL. The Robbins plant in Ishpeming, Mich. will continue to produce the Sportwood line and manufacture subfloor components.
