Shock absorbing material for your carpets

At Hardy Carpets, we believe it’s vital that your new carpets are fitted with a good carpet underlay. Underlay acts as a shock absorbing material between your new carpet and the floor. Floors themselves have no give, so when you walk on a carpeted floor with no carpet underlay all the pressure is absorbed by the carpet, rapidly accelerating its wear. When an underlay is used it takes all the pressure, cushioning the wear and protecting the carpet.

A luxurious feel underfoot

This cushioning effect of carpet underlay also adds an extra dimension of comfort to your carpet, giving it a really luxurious feel underfoot. In addition, an underlay provides good heat insulation and is excellent at absorbing noise. Always use the best underlay that you can afford. A top-quality underlay will make even the least expensive carpet feel luxurious and will make heavier quality carpets feel spectacular and also makes the carpet last 40% longer.

We would advise you to use a top quality underlay as they are exceptionally resilient, feel fabulous underfoot and do not retain dust the way that old felt underlay does.

We have a great selection of modern foam carpet underlay that will add comfort and warmth to your room!

Our expert fitters will always do a great job – a quality underlay keeps your carpets looking that way!
