The London Wall site
When KOBOX launched its second site in London Wall, the owners were keen to install a flooring solution which would not only withstand impact and reduce injury risk for users but would also absorb shock and noise associated with the slamming of medicine balls and dropping of free weights.
Physical Company performed a series of acoustic tests at site. Based on the results, it was recommended that the studio space be kitted out with 20mm Shockpad flooring, complemented by an Everlast 8mm top layer.
“We chose the Shockpad and Everlast combination because this provided excellent shock absorbency and impact protection at an affordable price. On our recommendation, KOBOX installed Everlast in roll format, rather than tiles, to create a surface with as few joins as possible. The basic Black rubber also ensured the flooring complemented the rest of the graphics, creating a wrap-around, visual experience”.
As a result of the success of the installation, the same flooring solution has been applied at the third KOBOX venue in Marylebone which opened at the end of 2018.
*KOBOX is London’s premium ‘Fight Club meets Nightclub’ training experience.
The concept is based on 50 minute classes which employ a range of functional kit including punchbags, free weights, medicine balls and various combinations of six-punch styles to deliver a high intensity cardio and strength training workout.
