Anti-Vibration Components in the Leisure Industry
Vibration isolation in the leisure industry typically covers a scope far broader than the effect of rubber mounts and bushes. From floating floors to acoustic panels, the minimisation of vibration can enhance customer enjoyment, minimise the impact on other building occupants, and reduce wear of critical machinery and systems.
Yet Fibet’s components play their part – ensuring that the machinery used in the leisure industry – from gym equipment to HVAC systems keeps working reliably.
- Sport & fitness
Acoustic panels, floors and suspended ceilings may be the more noticeable anti-vibration measures in your typical gym, but within the gym equipment itself and within the HVAC system that keeps the space warm/cool, Fibet’s mounts, buffers, stops and bushes ensure equipment can resist the forces placed upon it, ensuring it keeps working reliably.
The latest sound system is all for nothing if the customer experience is frustrated by external noise and vibration from HVAC, lift and projection systems. Fibet’s mounts buffers and stops isolate, dampen and eliminate vibration and related resonance from HVAC and elevator systems.
- Theme parks
Unwanted vibration in theme park ride machinery can increase wear, drive up maintenance requirements and increase the risk of failure and ride downtime. Fibet heavy duty sandwich and compactor mounts can isolate vibration in ride machinery subject to intense compression forces in vertically applied loads, whilst cab and cone mounts deflect vibrations in multiple axes whilst providing a fail-safe functionality – so critical in this industry.
- Bowling alleys
There are greater sources of vibration in a bowling alley than the bowling pinsetter and conveyor machinery. So vibration isolation of the alley’s equipment has a dual effect, protecting the machinery from the effects of wear caused by vibration from motors and drives, and isolating it from the reverberating impact forces of stray bowling balls.
Anti-vibration components tailored to your application
New products may require new approaches and unique components to isolate vibration. Fibet is more than a supplier of anti-vibration products to the leisure industry. We design, develop and test them to in conjunction with your own development team.

Fibet UK based customers are supported by our distribution site in Lancashire, which is managed by a small but very efficient team who will provide you with the highest level of personal – yet professional service that surpasses anyone else within our industry.
This service is backed up with the widest range of Fibet parts held in stock at these premises for next day delivery.
The Fibet Group has our head office in Turin, Italy where our key technical resources reside alongside our manufacturing facilities.
Our manufacturing facilities encompasses all the key manufacturing processes under one roof to provide us with the highest control, enabling us to respond to customers’ urgent requirements within the shortest space of time.
This includes a wide range of Injection & Compression Mould Machines that provides us with the flexibility to align the process used with the customers’ volume requirements.
This ensures that we can optimise the processes – whilst keeping the piece part prices as low as feasible.
Our technical expertise is market leading, with high levels of experience gained over 60 years in all applications.
The technical support we can offer include product conceptualisation, design/ development (for the products, tooling and processes), product validation (via life cycle or durability testing), and implementation into full volume production.
All this is project managed inhouse, with design/development performed using the latest CAE/FEA systems, tooling developed and manufactured inhouse, testing using one of the most comprehensive laboratories in the industry, and implementation using the wide range of plant and equipment available.
As we are able to provide a full turnkey service from concept stage, through to initial prototypes (usually within a small number of weeks from go ahead), then onto production volumes within the critical milestones set out by the customer, our NPI leadtimes are unbeatable within the industry.
Finally, all our activities are closely controlled in accordance with ISO9001:2015 & IATF16949:2016.
