At Simons Carpets we believe a quality underlay is the most important factor for the wear and comfort of your carpet, that is why we only use NZ made underlay by Dunlop. The features of Dunlop underlay is their ‘Maxbond’ cushioning system which uses a better quality foam, slipcoat and quadmesh.
We generally use 3 qualities:
- 10mm ‘Springstep’ – great for rentals, starter homes etc
- 11mm ‘Springstep’ – our standard luxury underlay
- 12mm ‘Quietstep’ – for extra comfort and acoustic qualities at minimal extra cost
There is also double bond underlay available for wheelchair or commercial use We also use tritac carpet gripper to ensure the correct stretch and hold of your carpet Some suppliers may offer ‘free’ or heavily discounted underlay, but this is cheap imported underlay which is inconsistent in thickness, full of fillers and hard lumps. Don’t make the mistake of ruining your new carpet with inferior underlay.
