Challenge

The Gym Group consists of over 65 fitness clubs throughout the UK, offering members round the clock fitness at affordable prices. Despite low membership rates the specification of clubs is high.

The Reading West gym is located in a shopping mall with retailers, cafes and restaurants nearby. On this occasion the challenge was to minimise any noise and vibration disturbance, caused by falling objects such as barbells, dumbbells and kettle-bells, to tenants operating in other areas of the building. The long-term protection of the subfloor was also important to the landlord.

Secondary to this, a highly resilient, non-slip and cushioned surface suitable for functional training activities was required for gym members to workout safely.

Solution

TVS Gym Flooring, a division of Total Vibration Solutions Ltd, was appointed as the preferred contractor because a high quality, cost-effective and proven flooring solution was specified.

Heavy-duty, interlocking SPORTEC® Style tiles were fitted over acoustically-tested and shock-absorbing layers in the heavy lifting area of the gym. This build-up of material is unique to TVS and specifically engineered to control noise and vibration in this type of environment.

In the gym space designated for functional training activities SPORTEC® Color-15 was ideal as this material provides long-term protection to the subfloor as well as a safe surface for exercising on.

Outcome

Installation of these surfaces ensure that other users of the shopping mall are not disturbed by any noise or vibrations from the 24-hour gym.
