Treadmill Help
« on: April 09, 2002, 12:16:29 PM »
I'm in an apartment and I have a treadmill.  The people who live below me have commented on how loud it is listenting to the *thump* *thump* *thump*.  Is there ANYTHING I can do to put underneath the treadmill to dampen or decrease the noise that's traveling through my floor into their place?  
Please help, thanks.

Tyler,
you might consider using some vibration pads to go under the feet of the treadmill. This would break the impact circuit from the treadmill to the floor below. Also you could use the mass loaded vinyl material in conjunction with the vibration pads for even more isolation of the sound transmission through the floor. Hope this is helpful to you,
Bob O.

Has anyone used vibration pads and vinyl material to reduce treadmill noise? If so, can you share the brand and where you purchased and if it was helpful? Thank you very much.
