Gym Floor Acoustic Testing & Reporting
With functional and free weight training in growth within the fitness market, there has been an increase in issues connected with noise and vibration caused by these activities.
Dropping a 25KG dumbbell on to the floor from overhead height generates approximately 2500 joules of energy and that energy, is invariably transferred down and then laterally.
The effects of training spaces above retail, corridors or changing rooms of public buildings or in residential developments can cause significant nuisance and even result in noise abatement orders.
Our testing service is an onsite replication of the problem, build-up of flooring system and improvement recording. Acoustic readings are taken together with subjective feedback . This is all put in a report with specification / recommendations to gym design, floor build up and other mitigating solutions with a bid to improve the environment.
