Features and Benefits

Installing a top quality carpet underlay will not only make your carpet feel more luxurious, but will provide extra cushioning underfoot, provide a warmer dryer home and will even extend the lifespan of your carpet.

Underlay is measured on two factors – The thickness of the underlay (e.g. 11mm) and the density of the underlay (e.g. 120kg). These two qualities make up the rating of the product, and is what each product is known by e.g. 11mm/120kg. The thickness and density combine together to provide a variety of benefits including:

  • Comfort
  • Durability
  • Thermal Insulation
  • Acoustic Insulation
