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.
