There are a huge variety of underlays with differing benfits to suit most needs.
Underlay has the following benefits:
- It gives a cushioning effect for a softer feel underfoot.
- Underlay protects the carpet maintaining its appearance for longer.
- Heat insulator, helping to reduce energy costs.
- Noise reduction – the extra cushioning will also help reduce noise.
- Underlay helps keep the longevity of the carpet.
At May Flooring Limited we recommend a good quality underlay and generally use Ball & Young’s Cloud 9 Cirrus which has excellent for thermal and sound characteristics:
- 9mm thickness
- 2.6 tog thermal insulation
- Impact sound insulation of 39dB
- Environmentally friendly – it is made from recycled materials
- Lighter than rubber underlays
- Luxury use for general domestic areas such as living rooms and bedrooms
For Under Floor Heating Systems, we would recommend an underlay with a lower tog rating than Cloud 9 Cirrus and will be happy to discuss alternatives. We supply a variety of underlays to suit all needs and budgets.
