New build vibration control

Sustainable, Vibration-Free Building Structures

Next generation floor vibration control for new-build developments

CALMFLOOR is revolutionising the world of floor vibration control for new-build developments with high-performance, sustainable, building structures that are completely free of floor vibration problems. The secret lies in CALMFLOOR’s patented active mass damper technology that allows architectural ambition to be achieved and Net Zero targets reached, quickly and easily.

The quest to design and deliver longer, leaner, lighter, higher new-build structures without compromising on structural integrity, sustainability and performance is a very real challenge. It has traditionally left architects, engineers and contractors no choice but to pursue costly, environmentally damaging standard vibration control methods based on structural overdesign.

CALMFLOOR is the low-cost, low-carbon alternative that can prevent overdesign and deliver floors with excellent vibration performance.

Education

Education

CALMFLOOR active mass damping (AMD) floor vibration control in educational buildings, e.g. schools, colleges and universities reduce excessive floor vibrations caused by pedestrians, machinery and road/rail traffic. The result is comfortable, compliant learning environments that prioritise student focus and wellbeing.

Sports

Sports

CALMFLOOR’s active mass damping (AMD) technology minimises excessive, disruptive floor vibrations caused by heavy footfall and equipment in sports facilities and stadia. Delivering precision floor vibration control to the areas that need it, CALMFLOOR creates optimal sporting experiences for players and spectators.

Offices

Offices

CALMFLOOR active vibration control eliminates excessive floor vibration in office spaces that can have a detrimental effect on workplace productivity and wellbeing. Effects such as trembling floors and shaking computer screens are minimised, leaving comfortable, compliant, ultra-productive and desirable workspaces.

Commercial and retail

Commercial and retail

CALMFLOOR active floor vibration control can transform performance in working environments and retail shopping experiences. This fast, seamless technology delivers floor vibration control directly to vibration hotspots in workspaces and retail outlets caused by footfall, equipment and road/rail traffic.

Transportation

Transportation

CALMFLOOR active vibration control reduces unwanted and disruptive vibration emitted within transportation buildings, concourses and other travel facilities. Active mass damping reduces excessive floor vibration from traffic and footfall for a smooth travel experience in bus terminals, train stations and airports.

Entertainment and leisure

Entertainment and leisure

CALMFLOOR active mass damper (AMD) technology reduces excessive floor vibration in entertainment venues and leisure facilities, including theatres, arenas and stadia, caused by crowds, equipment and audio. The result is an enriched visitor experience and enhanced building value for owners and agents.

Museums and libraries

Museums and libraries

CALMFLOOR active vibration control is the ultimate solution for museums and libraries where calm, focussed experiences are vital. Delivering floor vibration control directly to areas affected by vibration caused by footfall, equipment and external traffic, CALMFLOOR vibration control protects exhibits and concentration.

Healthcare

Healthcare

CALMFLOOR active floor vibration control is the answer to excessive floor vibration in hospitals, clinics and other healthcare buildings. Through precision-delivered vibration control, CALMFLOOR creates calm, healing and comfortable environments for visitors and patients.

High-rise buildings

High-rise buildings

CALMFLOOR active mass damper (AMD) technology delivers optimal vibration control for skyscrapers and other high-rise buildings. CALMFLOOR eliminates excessive vibration caused by wind, machinery and footfall that can disrupt wellbeing and concentration for those living in high-rise apartments and office skyscrapers.

Hospitality

Hospitality

CALMFLOOR active vibration control directs powerful forces to areas within hotels, restaurants and other hospitality buildings, cancelling out excessive vibration caused by footfall, equipment and traffic. The result is a comfortable, vibration-free guest experience in environments designed for relaxation and pleasure.

Life science laboratories

Life science laboratories

CALMFLOOR active mass damping technology brings unwanted floor vibration to within standard lab response level sensitivity in life science and general purpose laboratories where testing and research conditions must be optimal to ensure the accuracy of results. CALMFLOOR is perfectly suited to office-to-lab conversions

a new realm of benefits

Active vibration control for architectural freedom and Net Zero targets reached

New-build structures that utilise CALMFLOOR active mass damping technology to control vibration benefit from more slender and lightweight floor plates. That means a dramatic reduction in structural frame demand for high-carbon concrete and steel materials and foundation sizes. The resulting savings in cost and embodied carbon are huge and can transform sustainability and performance targets with ease.

With greater architectural and design freedom, CALMFLOOR presents a new realm of benefits for building stakeholders that can and should be incorporated in future new-build design and construction. These range from improving occupant comfort and meeting ever-more stringent performance criteria to using smart portal data to obtain proof of floor vibration performance for tenants and facilitate maintenance. CALMFLOOR active vibration control benefits everyone involved in new-build development.
