These kinds of tiles can be also put on top of a rubber mat (roll or puzzle tiles) to have an even more high resistance to the drops of the loaded bars.
The special design of the dimpled bottom is thought to spread the fall-power all along the edges of the dig areas. The principle involved within this process is the same used by architeths when projecting bridges. Dig areas absorbe the hits of the bumper plates, preserving them from earlier worn (bending and/or breackages). Either Weight Drop tiles and Heavy Duty Shock Absorbing tiles come in two several sizes: 50×50 and 100×100 cm.
One of the special feature of all Xenios USA® thick tiles is the seamless edge. All tiles are molded with 90° slightly rounded edges to provide an almost totally seamless ooring when put in place. Among the range of thick tiles ooring there are also several options and special features that can be chosen by customers. Tiles can be manufactured with a color-epdm-granules mixed surface (20%); or, even coupled in to the mold, with a top layer made with the 20% epdm-mixed rubber roll (6 mm.).
In order to match all workout ooring needs, we have developed and tested also a full range of Acoustic and Insulating Underneath Mats that are helpful to reduce the spreading of noise and vibrations on closer areas and floors, such as below oors when gyms are set in to multi-oor buildings, or wall-to-wall areas. We have developed and tested two solutions. The rst one is an SBR-rubber granulate Roll.
It comes in a standard thickness of 15 mm. and but it can be made also according to special customer’s requirements. Such roll can be put directly on to the concrete oor, just before to have the workout surface rubber ooring on top. Thanks to its special density and kind of granulate, it can reduce the noise produced by the weight dropping activities.
Its surface is quite “grippy” and it lets the above rubber ooring layer to be stable and not easy to get moved, even in those cases where glue and/or tape is not used.
Keep going on with the Xenios USA® several underneath flooring solutions, the next item is made of a special and high density (250 Kg./cbm) PU-Foam and it comes either as a roll or as a tile (for higher thicknesses). This kind of special ooring can help to reduce and absorb either noise and vibrations that can be spread by working out and/or weight dropping. Even in this case, any kind of workout rubber ooring can be put on top, and, in case of high thickness (so weight) rubber ooring, neither tape nor glue will be necessary to avoid each-other ooring moves.
Notwithstanding the Xenios USA® underneath oorings are thought and developed to reduce, and help to reduce, noise and vibrations, it is not totally guaranteed that neighbors’ claims will be avoided. Noise and vibrations produced by the weight dropping are really intense and, due to their low-frequency, they can run for dozens of meters along concrete ooring and/or brick walls.
Any time a Weight Lifting facility is going to be opened, it is duly recommended to perform some noise and vibration test and to check which kind of interventions could be necessary to reduce and/or to stop the same. Sometimes an anti-vibes or acoustic underneath flooring can x issues, while in some other cases more structure intervention may be necessary. In order to provide to our customers a really comprehensive range of professional workout floorings, we have thought and developed also a range of speciality flooring. The Articial Turf rolls, for example, were developed to be employed with the heavy duties uses of Functional training areas.
