CALMFLOOR Repurposed Buildings
Reduce Floor Vibration in Retrofit Buildings

The failsafe way to reduce floor vibration in retrofit & repurposed buildings

The challenge to reduce floor vibration in retrofit and repurposed buildings has traditionally meant architectural compromise and constraint at a time when the demand for adaptable floor structures with varying uses has never been higher. Coupled with the ramifications of considerable additional cost and materials, the increased embodied carbon needed can have a catastrophic effect on Net Zero targets in meeting the change.

CALMFLOOR’s patented active mass damper technology has been designed to deliver a failsafe option for architects and engineers tasked with reducing excessive floor vibrations in retrofit buildings – particularly where a change of use has to meet increasingly stringent vibration performance criteria.

CALMFLOOR active vibration control is perfect for any building, any change, delivering sustainable, high-performance buildings without any structural intervention.

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

Refurbished buildings

Refurbished buildings

CALMFLOOR is the world-leading active mass damper technology for existing, retrofit and refurbished buildings where unwanted floor vibration problems impact building performance and value. CALMFLOOR’s fast, seamless vibration control reduces floor vibration to meet any stringent change-of-use performance criteria.

Repurposed Buildings Vibration Control

The retrofit solution for vibration control with unrivalled architectural freedom

Central to CALMFLOOR’s active mass damping vibration control solution is the unrivalled architectural freedom and Net Zero ambitions that can be realised without any structural intervention or compromise on building performance. CALMFLOOR is fast technology that delivers powerful control forces directly to the predetermined vibration hotspots – and each unit can be installed in less than a day.

Take a typical office space-to-lab building conversion; floor vibration performance in life sciences facilities is critical to the proper operation of sensitive laboratory equipment. In lab environments that would typically demand heavy, deep, short-span and high-frequency floors, CALMFLOOR has been shown to reduce floor vibration by up to an unprecedented 89%. This enables office floor vibration performance that meets standard lab vibration levels and delivers substantial cost savings and environmental benefits.
