TVS Group gives flagship development the hush factor
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 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 were applied to match up with the various training zones and equipment. A sled track was also integrated within the gym space.
