Back to Building Acoustics


The BowlFLOOR range has been developed from our successful Cinema range of acoustic isolation solutions. Our engineering team have developed 3 options for this growing market.

Farrat has pioneered the acoustic isolation of bowling floors.

The unique challenge of three widely varying load profiles across
a bowling lane (approach, lanes, pinsetter) combined with the very low-frequency vibrational energy induced by a bowling ball impact led to the development of the BowlFLOOR range.

BowlFLOOR is designed to deliver the greatest balance of acoustic isolation, performance, and cost, meeting the specific needs of bowling alleys.


Where an existing structure can’t support the load of a heavyweight floating slab, BowlFLOOR LITE utilises high dynamic deflection polyurethane to extract the maximum possible low-frequency isolation from bowling lane structures that don’t incorporate an additional floating slab.


BowlFLOOR PRO is designed to deliver the greatest balance of acoustic isolation, performance and cost. An intermediate layer between the bowling lane and the isolator boosts acoustic isolation performance by providing additional mass damping and reducing dynamic stiffness. Comprising of dry-trades only, BowlFLOOR PRO is also designed to deliver optimal installation speed.


Providing high levels of acoustic isolation to bowling lanes is difficult as the isolators must be soft and compressible, yet resist varying loads across the approach, lanes and pinsetter. This has the potential to lead to inconsistent deflection. BowlFLOOR MAX is designed around a carefully calculated trio of isolators and combined with a concrete slab to deliver the very highest levels of acoustic isolation with competition standard deflection consistency.

We offer performance warranties up to 15 years demonstrating both expertise and confidence.

The longest in the industry.

About the products

This is a growing market with bowling alleys only a wall away from eating and drinking, pool, arcades, games, and even films being shown at cinemas. BowlFLOOR is designed to enable leisure facility developers and managers to optimise space while guaranteeing a great customer experience.

Special care has also been taken to consider buildability, reliability and robustness in each design to ensure that both the installers and the operator’s key interests are upheld such as acoustic performance, longevity and lifecycle cost.

Installation Services

Farrat Installation Services have supplied clients from a wide range of projects with the guarantee of complete isolation, overseen by our team of project managers and engineers with specialist experience in acoustic and vibration isolation.

If installation is not required from Farrat we will support project managers and contractors with onsite installation training.
