Our Purpose & Passion

We Champion Your Dreams  

Many can make a sports floor, but our success is based on going beyond.  Whether your dream is a to create a safe play environment for your children, or to create a championship caliber team, our passion is designing, manufacturing and marketing sports surfaces that benefit the user and owner at every level of play:

    1. Enhanced Safety
    2. Increased Comfort
    3. Reduced Fatigue
    4. Fantastic Game Play Response
    5. Low Total Cost of Ownership

Delivering on this passion has led to more than 25 patents over the years with additional patents pending.  Robbins is the only manufacturer with full-time research and product development staff and has collaborated for more than 20 years with world-renowned biomechanics researcher, Dr. Benno Nigg of the Human Performance Laboratory at the University of Calgary.  Robbins’ unique capability and understanding of the biomechanical interaction between athlete and floor have recently led to new designs that reduce vibration and increase uniformity, both of which improve performance, comfort and safety.
