A noisy gym is a normal gym, but no one wants to be deafened or have their workout interrupted by the sound of clattering and dropped weights. We can make your gym quieter with our range of gym acoustics solutions.

To get to the bottom of gym acoustics and provide meaningful solutions, we have performed drop tests on all our flooring to develop flooring systems that absorb sound and vibration to significantly improve acoustics.

This testing process has enabled us to develop flooring solutions with dampened acoustics compared to others. Eradicating all noise and vibration is impossible, but it is possible for us to keep sounds localised with minimal sound transfer.

We use different combinations of underlays to return different results, and we supply rubber floor tiles and rubber rolls, as well as vinyl flooring. This enables us to design flooring for all use cases, from free weight zones to running tracks.

Why TVS?

Following over a decade’s experience working with gyms to develop flooring systems, we have designed a range of acoustic flooring systems that reduce vibration, sound and noise transfer to make gyms a better place to spend time. If your gym is noisy because every dropped weight and skipping rope can be heard, it’s time to invest in an acoustic flooring system. We use different combinations of underlays and top surfaces to return different results.

For example, we can use foam underlays with rubber roll flooring to create floors that dampen sound during fitness classes, or we can use rubber underlays with rubber floor tiles so that dropped weights don’t make a sound. We can advise and recommend the right gym acoustics solution for your use case, and we welcome the opportunity to have a chat about your project.

We have hundreds of happy customers and we go out of our way to provide the best service and the best products at the best price.

You Asked

When it comes to commercial gym acoustics, individuals and businesses often have questions related to creating an environment that balances sound quality, noise control, and overall comfort. Here are some common questions asked online about commercial gym acoustics:

How Can I Reduce The Noise In My Commercial Gym?

Reducing noise in a commercial gym is crucial for creating a comfortable and focused environment for both gym-goers and staff. Here are several effective strategies to help minimize noise in your commercial gym:

Acoustic Panels Placement:

Install acoustic panels on walls to absorb sound and reduce echoes. Strategic placement, especially in areas with high ceilings, can significantly improve acoustics.

Ceiling Treatments:

Consider acoustic ceiling tiles or baffles to absorb sound and reduce reverberation. These materials can help create a quieter atmosphere.

Rubber Gym Flooring:

Invest in high-quality rubber gym flooring to reduce impact noise from dropped weights and equipment. Rubber has excellent sound absorption properties.

Noise-Reducing Mats:

Place noise-reducing mats under cardio equipment, weightlifting stations, and other high-impact areas to dampen vibrations and minimize sound transmission.

Equipment Placement:

Strategically arrange gym equipment to create dedicated zones for different activities. Grouping similar equipment together can help contain noise within specific areas.

Soundproofing Walls:

Use soundproofing materials within walls to minimize noise transmission between different sections of the gym. This may include adding insulation or acoustic barriers.

Limit High-Volume Music:

While music is a common element in gyms, excessive volume can contribute to overall noise. Set reasonable volume levels to maintain an energetic atmosphere without causing discomfort.

Regular Equipment Maintenance:

Ensure that all gym equipment is well-maintained to prevent unnecessary noise from loose parts or wear and tear.

Install Noise Barriers:

Use noise barrier curtains or screens in areas where sound needs to be controlled. These can be especially useful for creating private workout spaces or reducing noise in specific areas.

Consult with Acoustic Experts:

Consider hiring acoustic consultants or experts to assess the gym’s acoustics and provide tailored solutions.

By combining these strategies, you can create a more enjoyable and less disruptive environment in your commercial gym, contributing to a positive experience for both clients and staff.

Can Acoustic Panels Be Used Effectively in a Gym Setting?

Yes, acoustic panels can be used very effectively in a gym setting to improve acoustics and reduce noise. Here’s how:

Acoustic panels are designed to absorb sound waves, preventing them from bouncing off hard surfaces and creating echoes. This is particularly beneficial in large gym spaces with high ceilings, where sound can easily reverberate.

Gym activities, especially those involving weights and high-impact exercises, can generate significant noise. Acoustic panels help in reducing overall noise levels by absorbing and dampening sound, creating a more pleasant and comfortable environment for gym-goers.

Large open spaces, common in gyms, can lead to echoes and sound reflections. Acoustic panels strategically placed on walls can help minimize these echoes, improving the overall acoustics of the space.

In areas where fitness classes or personal training sessions take place, it’s important for participants to hear instructions clearly. Acoustic panels contribute to better speech intelligibility by reducing background noise and improving the clarity of verbal communication.

Acoustic panels come in various designs, sizes, and colors. This versatility allows you to choose panels that complement the aesthetics of your gym while still addressing acoustic concerns.

Acoustic panels are typically easy to install, making them a practical solution for gym owners. They can be mounted on walls without significant construction work, and some options even come in the form of ceiling baffles or clouds for overhead sound absorption.

Acoustic panels can be strategically placed in areas where noise control is most needed, such as near weightlifting stations, cardio areas, or group fitness spaces

Some acoustic panels allow for customization, including the incorporation of logos or branding. This adds a personalized touch to the gym while enhancing its acoustic performance.

When considering acoustic panels for a gym setting, it’s essential to assess the specific acoustical needs of the space. Working with acoustic consultants or experts can help in designing a solution that addresses the unique challenges of your gym environment, providing an optimal balance between sound control and overall aesthetics.

What are The Acoustic Considerations When Designing a Gym?

Sound waves are created by vibrations and travel through air or other materials until they reach something that makes them bounce off. What happens next depends on the material – some will absorb sound while others will reflect it back into the room. The more surfaces there are in a room, the more likely those sounds will bounce around and create an echo effect. That means less privacy for people working out near each other and higher levels of background noise for everyone else too!
We want your members to have an amazing experience at the gym – so we offer acoustic solutions designed specifically for gyms! Our products are designed with high-quality materials that will reduce noise levels in your facility while also reducing sound transfer between areas of a gym.

Considering noise and vibration reducing gym flooring

What Are The Acoustic Considerations When Designing Gyms In Mixed-Use Developments?

Gym acoustics will help you insulate the building so that noise and vibration from the gym does not affect other areas. We can also provide soundproofing for gyms, fitness studios, or any other commercial space where people work out. Our products are designed to be easy to install and maintain.
The problem is that gyms are often built on top of other buildings, so sound can travel through the floor or walls. This means that people living or working below can be disturbed by sounds from above.
