Is the Tread loud? Will the sound level annoy other workers in the office? Probably not at all, unless you are walking at 3 or 4 mph and wearing shoes that make a lot of noise. In fact, noisy shoes will make much louder sounds that the Tread, no matter what speed it is operating at. The charts below should help illustrate the sound level of our Tread when compared to common noises.

We used an Extech Instruments sound meter to take the decibel level readings at the height of the work surface with the Tread operating at speeds ranging from 0.5 mph up to 4.0 mph. Those findings are listed on the left. On the right is a chart that illustrates noise levels of common things that we can all relate to. When compared to other treadmills on the market today, the TreadDesk is definitely on the quiet end of the spectrum.

" I really like your product. I usually will walk for 2 hour stints on the TreadDesk and I definitely feel more energized. I truly think this product should be in every office. I Love it".
