The Gym Group
SPORTEC® Style Tiles; SPORTEC® Color-15
The Gym Group has more than 65 fitness clubs across the UK, which provide members with 24-hour access to high-specification fitness facilities. For this project, TVS was appointed to provide a flooring system for the gym area.
The gym is located in a shopping mall with retailers, cafés and restaurants nearby. The challenge was to protect neighbouring tenants from any noise and vibration disturbance caused by falling objects such as barbells, dumbbells and kettle-bells.
The long-term protection of the sub-floor 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.
TVS provided its heavy-duty, interlocking SPORTEC® Style Tiles, which 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 vibra-tion in this type of environment.
In the gym space designated for functional training activities, SPORTEC® Color-15 was chosen as the ideal product, since this material provides long-term protection to the sub-floor as well as a safe surface to train on.
