CALMFLOOR® Features in Thornton Tomasetti’s Brochure on Floor Conversions for Life Science Laboratories

We are delighted that Thornton Tomasetti, a world-leading scientific and engineering consulting firm, have included CALMFLOOR dampers in their latest brochure entitled “Life Science Conversions” on the conversion of existing building floors into life science facilities. 

CALMFLOOR technology allows more economical structure by targeting only floor areas requiring vibration control. Such facilities normally require increasingly stringent vibration requirements under footfall loading. CALMFLOOR was highlighted as a solution allowing more economical floor structure by targeting only specific areas of the floor to improve damping significantly and only where it is needed. This is a great recognition of the potential of the CALMFLOOR, a world-first commercial floor active mass damping system. 

This is also a major breakthrough for the wider acceptance of the CALMFLOOR technology as Thornton Tomasetti are in particular recognised for their long-standing and internationally leading consulting expertise in building floor vibrations in healthcare and research facilities. The company developed their own passive damping solutions for building floors. Our CALMFLOOR active damping solution now complements the existing suite of floor vibration management solutions provided by Thornton Tomasetti.
