The Indoor Division has been hard at work on this publication, and continues to develop the manuscript for the book. In addition to several new chapters (Bleachers and Sports Flooring, and a Partial List of Testing Agencies, for example), this publication includes input from the Maple Flooring Manufacturers Association (MFMA) in the interest of presenting a more balanced, increasingly informative publication.
