New Carpet? New Underlay!
Underlay is vital for your new floor covering to sit properly and wear evenly.
PU (polyurethane) foam Underlays
PU Foam Carpet Underlay is a relatively new concept in Carpet Underlay manufacture and has been extremely successful in recent years because these carpet underlays offer the ultimate levels of luxury and comfort with superb carpet wear protection and appearance retention. These carpet underlays are also Environmentally Friendly as they are mainly produced from recycled foam from the furniture industry. PU underlay is formed under pressure and heat to produce a dense, resilient yet light-weight underlay with an excellent underfoot feel. They have superior thermal resistance and excellent acoustic properties. These underlays are also recyclable after use, alleviating the problem of landfill. We use Interfloor Sensation an 11mm Ultra High Density underlay.
Sponge Rubber Underlay
The most popular underlay, available in flat or waffle. Waffled Rubber and Flat profiled Rubber Carpet Underlay's are favoured widely in the UK by the major Carpet Retailers and are suitable for all areas in your home. Ranging in thickness and weight these luxury types of Rubber Underlay have been extremely popular over the last 30 years and are the best-selling type of Carpet Underlay in Europe.
