John Neil Byrnes, age 75, died peacefully on June 4, 2016, at Cottingham Hospice House in Seneca, SC.
While one of John’s early aspirations was to be “the best auto mechanic there ever was,” he quickly learned that he was an excellent salesman. His success soon translated into starting his own hardwood flooring business, Floors, Inc. Thirty-six years after starting that business, John was inducted into the Maple Flooring Manufacturers Association Hall of Fame—an honor he was incredibly proud to receive.
It may be retired, but its work isn’t done just yet.
The hardwood court that has played home to a number of Milwaukee Bucks games will soon find its new home in Tbilisi, Georgia thanks to the work of NBA player Zaza Pachulia and Mercer, Wis.-based Action Floor Systems.
Different Standards For Different Sports
We want nothing to get in the way of the athletes performing at the pinnacle of their abilities. The PUR Standards identifies the performance standards and their optimal performance levels that matter the most for each activity. Playing basketball on an aerobics floor will affect the performance of the athlete. The
increased shock absorption can lead to fatigue much quicker than playing on a floor where the ideal shock absorption is designed for basketball. The opposite is true if you are doing aerobics on a portable floor system. The reduced shock absorption could lead the aerobics instructor to end the class early from soreness in the knees and ankles.
