Jack-Up Concrete & Lightweight Floating Floors – Flyefit Gym Tallaght, Dublin

Flyefit Gym Tallaght, Dublin

Mason UK were pleased to work closely with Lovebuild on the installation of both a sprung jack-up concrete floating floor, and dry floating floor systems at the new Flyefit gym in Tallaght, Dublin.

Lovebuild Construction carried out the installation of both floating for system with Mason UK providing the design, products and supervising the works. A sprung concrete jack-up floating floor has been installed in the Olympic weights area of the gym. This system includes our FS coil spring castings within the concrete floor, providing the absorption of low frequency impact vibration.

The Olympic zone is surrounded by the free weights area. This meant that a permanent steel shuttering was required to separate the two floating floors.

The free weights zone was covered by a dry floating floor utilising our EAFM 8823 LDS rubber mounts and layers of board and paving slabs to gain adequate mass. This system was specified to absorb the general vibration from dropping of lighter weights and usage of free weights equipment. See photos of the construction below.

It was a great opportunity to work with Lovebuild on another project, and we look forward to working with them in the future.

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.

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.

Acoustic 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

Acoustic Isolation of Gymnasia

A gym by its very nature is a place where people participate in noisy activities – running, jumping, shouting, ball sports and weight lifting etc are all part of typical gym usage; any construction must withstand this treatment whilst maintaining acoustic separation to prevent noise and structural vibration transmission.

Dry and Formwork Acoustic Floor Systems

The best performing floating floor systems are typically heavy and thick, using a concrete layer, such as our jack up floating floors. However, sometimes this is undesirable, or not possible due to structural and building limitations, and a lightweight system is required.
