IndigoFitness Tips For Acoustic Gym Flooring Solutions

Leigh Sports Village, one of England's premier sports complexes, recently undertook a significant upgrade to its training facilities. To enhance the training space for elite teams such as the Leigh Centurions and Manchester United Women's Team, as well as local high-performance athletes, they enlisted the expertise of IndigoFitness. The goal was to implement advanced 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 neighboring 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:

  • Assess Your Needs: Understand the specific requirements of your space, including the types of activities and the level of noise reduction needed.
  • Quality and Durability: Select flooring that can endure heavy use and provide long-term durability.
  • Noise Reduction: Prioritise flooring solutions designed to minimise sound and vibrations, ensuring a quieter environment.
  • Customisation: Consider custom options like branding and personalisation to enhance both functionality and aesthetics.
  • Professional Installation: Work with experts to ensure proper installation and maximise the benefits of your acoustic flooring.

Why duraSOUND

IndigoFitness's duraSOUND flooring offers several key benefits that make it an ideal choice for high-performance training facilities:

  • Exceptional Durability: duraSOUND tiles are designed to withstand the demands of heavy training and equipment use, making them one of the most durable options on the market.
  • Superior Noise and Vibration Reduction: Engineered for optimal noise and vibration control, these tiles create a quieter and more comfortable training environment.
  • Industry-Leading Warranty: The 10-year limited warranty on duraSOUND flooring ensures long-term quality and reliability.
  • Versatility: Suitable for both indoor and outdoor use, duraSOUND flooring provides flexibility in gym design and construction.

The Result

The collaboration between Leigh Sports Village and IndigoFitness resulted in a transformed training space that meets the high standards required by elite sports teams and athletes. The new gym flooring has significantly improved acoustics, reduced sound transmission, and optimised the overall athlete experience. Feedback from athletes and staff has been overwhelmingly positive, highlighting the enhanced training environment.
