For: gymnasiums, fitness centres and home workout areas.

Compliance: suitable for a wide range of acoustic requirements for Gyms and Fitness centres.

Installation: please see our installation tab below.

Where: floor application for cardiovascular studios, personal training areas and use of machine operated apparatus.

A highly durable, compression moulded and easy to install gym soundproofing platform for use against excessive impact noise or vibration.


MuteGym™ 51 is our highly engineered, high performing and easy to install floor soundproofing platform specially designed for improving Gym acoustics offering protection against both excessive impact noise and structural-borne vibration in professional and commercial gyms, dedicated workout areas at home, and even gym facilities areas in workplaces. 

Each MuteGym™ is engineered with Compression Moulded technology to create a precise, consistent and effective acoustic platform with a ring-like pedestal structure moulded to the underside during the compression process to limit direct contact with the floor, and this helps to 'cushion' significant levels of impact noise and vibration. For each soundproofing material, you will often find that to achieve individual specific sound insulation values you will need to combine them with additional products to create a complete soundproofing system that is best suited, you can find all systems in which MuteGym™ 51 is incorporated into by selecting the 'Systems' tab above.

The design of MuteGym™ 51 is for the reduction of general foot traffic in noise sensitive areas, dumbbell areas containing free-weights, and areas that feature machine operated apparatus such as the use of treadmills and spin cycles. These all transfer a significant amount of sound energy into the structure that disrupts internal and external areas.

Will MuteGym™ 51 help to stop structural borne noise?

Stopping structural-borne noise requires a variety of different soundproofing methods to have it reduced to what is referred to as a ‘background noise level’, complete blocking and isolation of sound will require a significant amount of protection. It is recommended during the proposal stage of any Gym that is in the same structure as other properties both residential and commercial, as well as adjacent to to the gym, to carry out a Noise Impact Assessment to assist with the planning of soundproofing, helping to provide information on how to best avoid noise complaints and further complications arising with neighbouring developments and with the internal planning of the Gym. Impact noise is one of the more major concerns of gyms, dropping heavy weights, the continuous impact of running machines and use of cross-fit all make to be an incredibly loud environment. MuteGym™ 51 can be used in both small home gyms all the way up to professional specialist and commercial gyms which are often found in multi purpose complexes where residences, restaurants and shops all share the same structure, and all of which can be affected by the effects of structural borne vibration.


In what areas of a gym is MuteGym™ 51 best specified for use?

Running machines, weighted-machines and cross-fit areas are just a few areas in which MuteGym™ 51 is effective, it’s ring structure helps limit the amount of contact with floor and provides not only something stable and robust, but also a final floor finish without needing any additional finishes.


Can I also use MuteGym™ 51 for home gym soundproofing projects?

With the affordability of home gym equipment, these are appearing even in the most humblest of homes - even a treadmill or cycling machine. MuteGym™ 51 can be used at home to help soundproof against impact and vibration, often finding incredible results in concrete structures, but will often be lessened in timber. If it is used in a timber construction, and additional compressible mat may be best used in conjunction to act as a platform area. With heavy-free weights, something more substantial may need to be put in place to reduce excessive noise disturbing your neighbours.


Is MuteGym™ 51 easy to install?

The design of all our MuteGym™ products is a simple Kros Lok pattern set up to be installed in modular form. These will often require bonding to the substrate in which you can find all information out on adhesives and which is best to use in a range of applications on our Related PDFs tab.


Are there any other areas in sound proofing should be looking as well as improving the overall acoustics of a gym?

MuteGym™ 51 is the perfect solution to help reduce structural borne vibration caused by blunt, heavy impact, but another major consideration is reducing airborne noise through walls and ceilings, and this can often include the ceiling below. Depending on the level of reduction required, suspended ceilings often need to be put in place to further reduce vibration, again this will be something considered in the Noise Impact Assessment. Wall soundproofing is another important consideration as sound will move into the airspace around the room and move directly in to the rooms adjacent and causing problematic flanking transmission, and the same for ceilings, ceiling soundproofing also wants to be considered to reduce to noise transfer to neighbours above. At this stage, you will want to consider reviewing our MuteClip® Stud Double Plus systems in all wall and ceiling areas.

With loud music often found in gyms, these will benefit from a form of isolation from the structure as direct fixings could lead to vibration transferring back in to the structure, especially where low frequencies are concerned.

In addition to this, gyms are often full hard and reflective surfaces, they are easy to lean. - But, when personal training and important instructions are being carried out - the message can be lost in these often large, open and reverberant spaces, lowering the quality of the classes and putting significant strain on the speaker’s vocals and the people listening. With this in mind, we would often look to specify sound absorption products, such as our NoteRange - to assist with reducing reverberation in the different spaces.
