Our mid-tier standalone gym soundproofing platform that protects against impact and vibration from cardiovascular, training and pulled-weight machines. Also areas with greater noise sensitivity.
MuteMat® Gym 51-B0 is our practical standalone gym flooring tile, made of robust high quality recycled rubber and yields incredible acoustic performance on concrete floors in Gymnasiums and Fitness centres. They reduce high impact noise levels and create separation from the structural floor.
It has a broad range of uses which are suitable for professional and commercial gyms, person fitness rooms and use in hotel fitness and spa areas. Specific areas to where our MuteMat® Gym 51-B0 is best used is regarding and dropping of weights, Crossfit areas and multi-stack weight lifting machines, to protect against impact noise. It is easy to install because of its modular style fitting and Kros-Loc design around each tile; this then only needs to be bonded to the concrete floor. No floor finishing is required and has slip-resistant qualities.
We provide Acoustic Installation across the UK to fit all of our systems - they come with a wealth of experience in the field so you can feel comfortable that the right installation methods are being carried out.

Results are measured in Reduction, this means that we take the bare floor measurement first and compare it against the measurements found with the MuteMat® Gym 51 in place.

Both sound insulation and optimum sound control are essential for not only urban, multi-purpose building based Fitness Centres or Gyms, but also with protection against internal noises by placing large weighted areas close to areas that require an environment to be without external noise issues. Two of the most significant impacts are on adjacent residential properties and businesses, to where disruption to daily lives or companies can be readily heard with considerable blunt impact noise and structural vibration. With the ever-increasing urban and central city populations, convenience is often vital to winning the business of its many residents - but these are usually in multi-purpose complexes, so it won’t be uncommon to find residences right next door.
Seeking the correct soundproofing materials for the purpose is of most importance to help prevent this disruption, without this, complaints may arise either in the long term, or in an incredibly short amount of time - this could lead to the reduction of the services you can provide to your members or the complete closure of your premises.
Careful planning is required throughout, and this is why we recommend specifying from the beginning with a Gym Noise Impact Assessment, more information can be found below.
We have put together a guide to what acoustic design targets may be required to consider, although these will require discussion with local building control or council authorities as the sound insulation values often differ.
If you are looking to create a new Gym, renovate an existing one or have been asked to look at the impact your gym may have on the community by way of creating excessive noise - we would highly recommend a comprehensive Gym Noise Impact Assessment. It will give you perhaps additional considerations across areas you may have expected such as the overall planning of the gym floor, what level of sound insulation you require so that disturbances are minimal and in some occasions, deciding your available opening times. There will also be the placement of speakers so that music being played through the P.A does not negate any acoustic systems, or are mounted in a way that causes issues to neighbour properties, or noise sensitive spaces.
The proposal of a new Fitness Centre or Gymnasium would benefit hugely from a comprehensive Gym Noise Impact Assessment, not only to protect neighbours but the control of noise within the gym itself. It helps assist in the planning of internal spaces, placement of speakers for music, what effect large weight drops in certain areas is likely to have upon its surroundings and how airborne noise may travel through various paths. We can then take this information and put together the right acoustic systems from our MuteMat® Gym range - sustaining your business for the future.
We provide these acoustic assessments at a competitive rate, as well as developing acoustic designs to meet agreed gym soundproofing requirements.
With already existing Gyms looking to expand their services, there could be noise issues from the adjacent weight dropping areas in which could dramatically reduce the use or experience of rooms. Nobody wants to be cooling down in the presence of large weighted thuds or creating a space of wellness area next to an aerobics class, causing them stress. This would involve a drop test on a variety of MuteMat® Gym products as solo options and like with this acoustic system, combining them with or MuteMat® Gym SFP range to help with achieving soundproofing targets.
We provide these acoustic assessments at a competitive rate.
There is also an importance on how the sound behaves in the room internally, and this is the measurement of reverberation and to what level it is. Spaces with high levels of reverberation can exacerbate the noise by creating long decay times leading to negative experiences felt by members not being able to fully engage with activities that involve instructions or a sense of community when unable to engage with other members. This issue is treated by the introduction of dedicated sound absorption panelling and hanging baffles to minimise the decay of sound in such room and our sound absorption range can be tailored to your brand by selected designs, colours and sculptures to stand-out or blend in.
