The Meaning Behind “Abacus”

Abacus Sports Installations has been our name since 1991.  It has become a well known name in the sports flooring business for providing quality work for almost three decades. However, many of our customers ask us where the name of our company, “Abacus,” came from.

What is an abacus?

The abacus is a calculating tool that merchants used in Europe, China, Africa, and Russia before the creation of a written numerical system.  An abacus is made of a wooden or bamboo frame with wire fastened across the structure which beads slide across.  Merchants, clerks, and traders would use abacuses to keep precise logs of their goods.  Mathematicians would use them in the high courts to study astronomy and architecture.  They Mayans used a similar device to study the sky and the seasons.
