TVS Gym Flooring specialises in providing high quality sports and fitness surfaces for use in commercial health clubs, weightlifting gyms, strength and conditioning facilities, public leisure centres, boutique fitness studios and multi-use games areas in schools and colleges. Materials are highly resilient, durable and simple to maintain.
TVS also helps health club operators to overcome unwanted noise and vibration issues in gym environments by providing highly specialised acoustic solutions. Examples include: anti-vibration pads for treadmills; impact absorbing isolation rings for gym equipment; and spring jack-up floating floors for free weight areas.
Acoustically-engineered elastic layers or shock pads can also be combined with performance surfaces, providing additional protection to the structural slab while further reducing the transmission of impact forces into the building structure. Floor finishes need to be practical and fit for purpose. However, aesthetics also play an important part in the member experience at fitness clubs and are therefore a crucial element in gym design.
That’s why TVS offers a broad range of gym rubber floor coverings in a range of colours and in a variety of thicknesses. By varying the concentration and colour of EPDM granules contained within each product, designers can create floor schemes to complement the interior of any gym. Optimising the use of space is also important and a prowler lane is easily integrated into the floor plan.
TVS Gym Flooring can demonstrate a wealth of experience and has built a solid reputation, providing solutions to some of the UK’s leading health club operators. For more information on our range of products call us on +44 (0) 1706 260 220 or download our brochure from this website.

Acoustic gym floors are designed to significantly reduce noise and vibration so that workout activities do not impact other people. There is a perceptible difference in acoustic performance when acoustics are taken into account, as these surfaces create quieter workouts while also providing better results for those who use them!
Gym Noise – When it comes to gym noise, there are two types of sounds that will keep you up at night. The first is falling and dropped weights which can cause a lot more damage than one might think – their jarring impact on the floor could rip through your subflooring or even crack concrete! Not only does this make for an extremely unpleasant experience but also causes customer satisfaction levels in gyms drop significantly.
Vibration – The biggest challenge gym flooring faces is vibrations. How can we control these so that impacts are not felt on the other side of a room? The answer lies in gyms’ floor systems, which absorb different types of vibration and oscillation to reduce their effects across wide areas- making them more appealing for use.
The acoustic gym flooring you walk on is made from EPDM rubber, but the top surface is only one part of a multi-layer system. It typically consists of two or three layers consisting off an elastomeric polymer (EPDM) top plate; high rebound foam underlay to dampen noise and absorb vibrations; another thicker layer for isolation purposes usually with different density than both upper materials so they can be tuned differently based upon desired performance characteristics.
Investing in flooring for your commercial gym is an important decision. Rubber tiles and rolls provide a durable surface that protects against impacts while absorbing noise from weights being lifted overhead or other activities taking place nearby.
There’s no need to worry about durability since they are both incredibly resilient, which means they won’t break easily even if you drop something really heavy and they are available in many different colors.
Gym Tiles – Gym tiles are an excellent choice for people who want to install floors quickly. You can get tiles that have thickness up 70 mm, making them ideal as your flooring material! The click-together design also makes it easy to install. A key advantage to floor tiles is that they tend to be available in greater thicknesses than rubber rolls. Tiles can be very heavy duty, allowing you power lift and bounce weights off the ground with ease! For example we offer 15mm through 70 mm for general use – just what your gym needs!
Gym Rolls – Gym Rolls are a great option for installations with very little waste and thickness from 4mm to 10 mm. As the name suggests, rubber rolls come in rolls that you cut lengthwise. This means there’s less wastage material on your flooring when installation is complete! Since rolls are rolled out, they are quicker to install than tiles in larger spaces and you can cut the material to suit odd shapes like curves and corners. The downside to rubber rolls is they are heavy and require professional installation. They are also less suited to free weights because the thickness typically only goes up to 10mm.
Thanks to TVS Group, a new build to rent development in Manchester is assured of staying ultra-calm despite its vibrant state-of-the-art fitness facilities.
Like all its build to rent developments, the company behind the scheme has incorporated the latest fitness amenities within the city’s Chapel Wharf complex.
Earlier this year, TVS Group, a market-leading specialist in high performance shock pad underlay systems and highly durable surfacing, was approached to source, supply and install a range of floor finishes and acoustic solutions for the new development.
For example, in the area designated for weightlifting, TVS installed its heavy-duty impact-resistant SPORTEC Style Tiles, offering protection to the concrete sub-base and a reduction in potential structure-borne noise often associated with weightlifting activities.
Meanwhile, in the stylish cycling studio, TVS supplied a polished, concrete-effect vinyl floor with a high resistance to static and rolling loads. The surface is ideal for environments where fitness equipment is regularly relocated and repositioned before and after use.
Elsewhere, comfort and user safety were prioritised in the stretching area, where TVS fitted a P2 category sports floor with a high level of shock absorbency and anti-bacterial properties. To further reduce structure-borne and footfall noise on the first-floor level, it also installed a high-performance acoustic underlay beneath a decorative wood-effect vinyl floor covering.
Finally, at ground floor level, SPORTEC Color-15 sheet rubber was selected and installed and line markings applied to match up with the various training zones and equipment. A sled track was also integrated within the gym space.
