2mm PE Underlay
Acoustic White 2mm Thick underlay is ideal for Wood or Laminate Floors where a simple but protective underlay is required. Produced using a closed-cell polyethene foam, this underlay provides great support for your wood or laminate flooring, acoustic insulation and the ability to accommodate for minor imperfections in the sub-floor area.
What does carpet underlay do?
Carpet underlay should not be seen as an optional extra – it’s essential. Not only does it enhance the look and feel of your new flooring, it also improves the level of underfoot comfort. It acts as a shock absorber, protecting the carpet from daily wear and tear and extending its lifespan by up to 50%. On top of this, it demonstrates excellent sound and thermal insulation properties.
How long does carpet underlay last?
In theory, high-quality carpet underlay can last for up to 25 years – but the older it gets, the less effective it becomes. It can harbour dust and dirt. It may start to show signs of wear and tear and can affect the overall finish of the carpet. With this in mind, it’s usually a good idea to invest in new underlay each time you replace your carpet or laminate.
