Sprung Jack-Up Floating Floor for Gym Free Weights Area, Edgbaston Priory Club

Mason UK completed the installation of the floating floor for the Free Weights area in the gym for Morgan Sindall. The requirement set by the acoustic consultant was for the floor to be 150mm thick and jacked up 100mm with a frequency of below 4Hz.

The floating floor using Mason FS jack up helical spring mounts was required to isolate the impact energy from free weights being dropped onto the floor from entering into the building structure. The impact isolation is achieved by the spring deflecting under the sudden impulse load. The energy from the dropped weight is turned into spring deflection which therefore reduces the energy entering into the building fabric.

Jack-Up Spring Floating Floors

The jack up spring floating floor is used for low frequency isolation or where impact isolation is required, such as bowling alleys, gymnasia and health clubs.

Concrete Floating Floors

Floating floors systems are used for many purposes, predominantly to prevent noise passing through the floor but also to isolate against vibration and impact.
