Client Profile:

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 Challenge:

The gym was located in a shopping mall with retailers, cafes and restaurants nearby. On this occasion the challenge was to minimize 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 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 Solution:

TVS were 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 vibra-tion 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 to train on.
TVS Sports Surfaces are a leading supplier of performance surfaces and elastic layers. Materials are frequently used in sports, leisure and playground facilities.
