MutePad is a treadmill isolation pad for reducing the impact sound produced by a treadmill. Our isolation mounts use dimpled rubber for reduced points of contact, microcellular elastomer foam and a dual density rubber topping to achieve the best performance possible. This specific combination of materials and densities is the reason we have been able to significantly reduce the vibration from a treadmill transferring into the floor.
When designing the MutePad we scoured the market for existing test data on treadmill isolation pads and found no data from any supplier.
iKoustic tested over 20 combinations of material and construction build up in both timber and concrete constructions to ensure the highest performance possible.
These tests show a common 15mm solid rubber gym tile alone did not reduce the sound travelling through the floor but made matters worse. Further to this, premium 70mm tiles only improve the sound reduction by 2.4dB. This shows why the comparable rubber treadmill isolators do not give the desired sound reduction. MutePad in the same situation achieved an 8.7dB (LZT) sound reduction.
The home gym market has significantly expanded over the past few years with more advanced and widely available machines and more people exercising from home. These isolation mounts are a great way to reduce the sound transfer to other rooms and the neighbors! They can also be used as exercise bike isolation mounts, cross trainer isolators or under other cardiovascular machines.
If you have any soundproofing, technical or general questions please feel free to give us a call or an email, please provide as much detail about your project as possible to help us get up to speed with your situation and specific requirements. If you have any questions large or small please send an email to [email protected] or call us on 01937 588226 and one of our technical team will be on hand to help guide you through the soundproofing process.
Simply place the product down and ensure the foot of the treadmill is located in the centre of each pad. For treadmills with a riser that rolls along the floor at the front, ensure the range of this wheel is located to the centre of the larger pads and it will not extend past the cut out on the pad.
Please get in contact with the team if you have any questions about the installation.
Soundproofing products act as a barrier to decrease sound leaving or entering a room or workspace. Sound absorbers absorb the sound within a room and assist to reduce room reverberation etc. Absorbers do not prevent the sound leaving the space but will reduce it. If you are wanting to soundproof a room you would have to buy soundproofing products. It may also be worthwhile to think about some absorbers inside the room to help reduce the sound before it hits the soundproofing.
A sound barrier is a sound blocker and usually includes insulation with a high mass, which then reduces the amount of sound that can pass through it. A standard domestic door is a good example of a noise barrier when it is closed as it reduces the sound of external noise. Sound waves flow like water and air so it is impracticable to use a sound barrier such as a fence or screen to stop noise but they are effective when used to reduce noise immediately on the other side of them. From distances farther away the noise reduction will be less efficient.
