REGUPOL and REGUFOAM products
Since this fitness room is located directly above an open office environment on the second floor, low-frequency structure-borne sound and vibration from cardio equipment, free weights, and other equipment was a major noise concern for the architects at Davis Partnership. Architects at Davis Partnership have successfully used REGUPOL and Regufoam products on similar projects before, which made REGUPOL vibration 200 a qualified isolation material for this prestigious project. REGUPOL vibration 200 has also a unique acoustical and structural performance that is unmatched in the market: At loads that are typical for 75 – 100mm normal weight floating concrete slabs, REGUPOL vibration 200 achieves a natural frequency of 15-16 at a thickness of only 17mm, for which other products in the market require a thickness of 25 – 50mm. This product also achieves a natural frequency of 9-10 Hz at a thickness of 50mm.
We’d like to thank the team of Davis Partnership for the continued trust in REGUPOL and REGUFOAM, and for designing such a beautiful project with our materials.
