Nobody goes to a gym to sit still. It’s an environment designed to encourage high levels of activity, all very energetic… but far from quiet, especially in your free weight area.
This is where Gym Flooring Acoustics come in. If our standard sports flooring cannot achieve the necessary sound reduction, our expert technical team can advise on the specification of a wide range of specialist acoustic and vibration control systems – balancing performance, aesthetics, and budget.
Subjective testing is a key ingredient to ensure that gym or training facilities, wherever located, do not cause a nuisance and/or disturbance to the surrounding occupants.
More and more gymnasiums are being designed and built, many of which are located in already occupied buildings whether that be residential or commercial, this can itself be problematic due to the activities that take place.
To avoid such problems ‘subjective testing’ should be carried out by independent acoustic consultants to ensure the noise and structural vibrations generated are assessed and adequately treated to avoid any potential complaints.
The aim of the subjective tests is:
To identify the noise levels in surrounding areas due to typical worst-case impacts on the floor slab, without any acoustic/vibration treatment.
To measure the improvement in noise control when a simplified floor treatment is applied.
To review the suitability of a simplified isolation floor build-up to comment its suitability in place.
We have a comprehensive ‘library’ of acoustic flooring systems that might offer an effective ‘off-the-shelf’ solution to your gymnasium acoustics problems.
Each system offers a solid starting position which can for the basis create a highly effective bespoke soundproofing solution for your gym.
A gymnasium on a ground floor location in an edge-of-town retail park isn’t going to present the same acoustic and soundproofing challenges as a gymnasium situated in a mixed-use developments containing offices, shops and residential quarters.
