Gyms are increasingly popular, which means they're increasingly noisy. These days, gyms come with banks of TVs, loud music and pounding feet, all accompanied by the busy hum of electric treadmills and steppers. Luckily, noise reduction and soundproofing in your gym is easier than you think, so neighbours are disturbed as little as possible. But there's another issue, too – you also need to exclude noise from outside, particularly if you have quiet areas for relaxation, massage or classes.
Long-lasting gym soundproofing
SRS has a range of easy-to-install, long-lasting solutions for soundproofing walls and your gym floors, and ceilings. Maxiboard is a building board that replaces plasterboard and soundproofs stud partitions, masonry walls and ceilings. For belt and braces, Acoustilay can dampen the sound of treadmills, steppers and other loud equipment that sits on the floor. Acoustilay is an acoustic underlay that soundproofs floors for impact and airborne noise.
For noise reduction and soundproofing in your gym's aerobics rooms, you can use Maxiboard and Acoustilay. Maxiboard minimises disturbance from the loud music, while Acoustilay creates a floating floor to soundproof the impact of footfall. Acoustilay can be used with a wide range of floor finishes, including carpet, vinyl and wood.
Suspended ceiling soundproofing
If your gym has suspended ceilings, noise reduction and soundproofing can be achieved with other SRS products such as SoundBlocker, SoundBar or SoundStop. SoundBar and SoundStop are soundproofing products that can close the void above a suspended ceiling. SoundBlocker soundproofs the suspended ceiling itself, a useful feature if the void has lots of wiring or ducting.
