Underlays for Rugs, Carpets and Kilims

Some people love it some people hate it! A rug laid straight on the floor is simple and seems ideal but sometimes they may skid around or on fitted carpet they may creep. Kilims which are thinner often benefit from a bit of additional ‘body’. In all case underlay will give a softness underfoot and in most cases it will reduce wear so it’s genrally a good thing, especially so for valuable or antique carpets

Combifelt

To support rugs, carpets and kilims on wood, laminate, tile or stone floors.

The traditional felt is entirely recycled. It is made from textile trade dross and bonded to a crumbed rubber (made from recycled car tyres), providing cushioning and an effective anti-slip function.

We will work out what is needed and cut to order allowing about 4cms overlap of your rug, all round. It is supplied in 7.3 x 1.36m rolls.

Cost: £18 + VAT per liner metre off the roll.

 

WorkForceRapid

To support rugs, carpets and kilims on fitted carpets.

This underlay is specially designed to stop rugs creeping on fitted carpets. The pile of most fitted carpets leans in one direction. The creeping problem happens as you walk on a rug laid on top. It can cause significant damage to rugs in the long term and is very annoying too! The underlay is stiff with the underside having a slightly tacky surface. The top surface has no directional pile, offering an inert surface for rugs to lie on.

We will work out what is needed and cut to order allowing about 4cms overlap of your rug, all round. It is supplied in 11 x 1.36m rolls.

Cost: £24 + VAT per liner metre off the roll.

Mesh underlay

This is a latex coated open string mesh for rugs on hard floors. It has insignificant cushioning effect but provides a useful degree of non slip. After some time the latex tends to lose its non-slip due to gathering dust but it can be tossed in a washing machine on a cold wash and ‘hey-presto’ it will work again.

We will work out what is needed and cut to order allowing about 4cms overlap of your rug, all round. It is supplied in 11 x 1.2m rolls.

Cost: £12 + VAT per liner metre off the roll.
