Utah company designs court floor for Brooklyn Nets

First Published Nov 02 2012 08:36 am • Last Updated Mar 06 2013 11:31 pm

When the Brooklyn Nets are at home in its new $1 billion Barclays Center this year, they’ll play on a court designed and manufactured by Salt Lake City’s Connor Sports Flooring.

The floor has a V-shaped herringbone design, and at center court is a circular black and white logo with the letter "B" inside, surrounded by the words "Brooklyn New York."

The portable court consists of 240 four-foot-byseven-foot maple panels that can be quickly installed or removed to accommodate a variety of events at the center.

The floor design had to pass testing by the National Basketball Association to ensure it didn’t look blurry on television.

The maple wood had to be brought to a specific moisture content prior to manufacturing to ensure that the herringbone pattern remains intact.

Connor Sports Flooring is a unit of Connor Sport Court International, also in Salt Lake City.
