Foam carpet underlays are available in a huge range of products and cover all requirements from light domestic to the heaviest contract installations.
There are four main considerations when choosing a foam underlay:
- The denser the underlay the better the performance
- The heavier the density the more the carpet 'bounces back' to its original state after pressure is applied Thickness:
The thickness of the underlay gives the feeling of comfort underfoot
- The thicker the underlay the more luxurious it feels to walk on Longevity:
- Denser thicker underlays absorb more of the stresses from daily traffic and help to increase the lifespan of the carpet. This effect can be dramatic in some cases. Most importantly if you have purchased a good quality carpet then do match it with a similarly specified underlay.
