TVS Support Strength Training Academy

TVS supplied and installed acoustically engineered materials at Primal Gym
Case study: Primal Gym is an independent fitness facility located within a mixed-use development complex in the city of Leeds.

A residential apartment block is situated above and retailers are trading either side.

The client’s vision was to create a “best-in- class” strength training academy for the North of England, however controlling any noise and vibration caused by heavy impacts presented a rather unique challenge.

As the client was not prepared to compromise on their business concept they turned to Total Vibration Solutions Ltd and TVS Sports Surfaces for help.

The Challenge: The gym was to operate in a shared commercial space and the challenge was to minimise noise and vibration disturbance (caused by gym activity) to neighbouring occupants.

TVS Solution: TVS supplied and installed a range of acoustically engineered materials along with finished surfaces that exceeded the performance requirements set out for this project.

As part of the contract, a reinforced concrete slab was constructed on the ground floor and “jacked up”, creating a floating floor with a specified air gap.

This acoustic platform was finished with a performance layer of interlocking Sportec® Style tiles, providing a usable space for weightlifting while minimising impact noise and vibration to the adjacent businesses.

The first floor of the gym was designed for dynamic training activities and TVS installed a shock-absorbing underlay, finished with a non-slip performance layer of Sportec® Color-15.

A custom designed sprint track was also integrated into this area allowing for sled work to take place.

Result: TVS helped the client optimise the use of floor space over two levels and provided an innovative solution. Noise and vibration was controlled and neighbouring tenants were not disturbed by gym activities.

TVS Sports Surfaces are the exclusive supplier of Sportec® and Euroflex® products in the UK and Ireland. A division of Total Vibration Solutions Limited, one of the UK’s leading noise and vibration control specialists, they provide innovative and effective surfacing solutions for sports, leisure and playground facilities.
