Benefits of fitting new underlay

Different Types of Underlay

 

PU Foam carpet underlayUnderlay examples
Thanks to improvements in materials – PU underlay is now our best seller and can give a real quality feel to your carpet. Polyurethane underlay is made from granulated foam which is compressed and thermally bonded together. Often PU underlay is made from recycled materials, so this has cost savings at the manufacture stage.

Our best selling underlays are Cloud 9 Cirrus and Cosi 8. These underlays are suitable for use in any area of the home (except bathrooms).

 

Rubber carpet underlay
Rubber waffle underlay is available in different qualities to suit all budgets.

 

Wool felt underlay
This is widely used, but more popular for commercial uses, like bars and restaurants. It is environmentally friendly as it is usually made from recycled fibres and has good acoustic properties. This felt underlay does not disintegrate over time and often outlives the carpet.

 

Combination underlay
These underlays are constructed from different material combinations (felt and rubber) in an effort to have the best of both worlds!
