IndigoFitness Tips For Acoustic Gym Flooring Solutions

When it comes to elite training facilities, every detail counts.

Leigh Sports Village, one of England’s premier sports complexes, understood this perfectly when they decided to upgrade their training space to meet the demanding standards of top-tier teams like the Leigh Centurions and Manchester United Women’s Team, as well as local high-performance athletes. The goal was to implement advanced acoustic gym flooring solutions that would minimise noise and vibrations, ensuring an optimal training experience.

The Challenge

Located on the first floor, Leigh Sports Village’s training facility needed to address a critical issue: minimising noise and vibrations to prevent disruptions in neighbouring rooms and offices. This required a flooring solution that could effectively absorb sound and withstand the rigors of heavy training.

The Solution

IndigoFitness responded with the installation of 51mm duraSOUND rubber acoustic tiles. These tiles are specifically engineered to reduce sound transmission from heavy weight drops by up to 38 dB, significantly improving the acoustic experience for athletes and ensuring minimal disruption to adjacent spaces.

To complement the duraSOUND tiles, IndigoFitness also installed a custom branded 13m long TurFlex turf track, built to the same height as the acoustic tiles. Personalised Graphix platforms were also integrated into the design to create a seamless, functional, and visually appealing training space.

Tips for Choosing Acoustic Gym Flooring

For those considering an upgrade to their training facilities, IndigoFitness offers the following tips to ensure the best acoustic gym flooring solution:

Tip 1: Assess Your Needs

Understand the specific requirements of your space, including the types of activities and the level of noise reduction needed.

Tip 2: Quality and Durability

Select flooring that can endure heavy use and provide long-term durability.

TIP 3: Noise Reduction

Prioritise flooring solutions designed to minimise sound and vibrations, ensuring a quieter environment.

Tip 4: Customisation

Tip 5: Professional Installation
