You can’t beat the first few weeks after getting a luxury new carpet fitted. That “new carpet” smell gives your home a certain freshness. And every footstep feels like you’re walking on a cloud, especially when you’ve gone for a heavy grade carpet with a thick pile.

The only problem is that the feeling doesn’t last long, especially when you have a big family trampling across it, or when your carpet’s in a room that your loved ones walk across day-in, day-out.


Until now, that is. 

Because here at QA, we’ve developed a revolutionary new high density foam underlay that’s perfect for heavy domestic use (like the trampling family we just mentioned). It’s called PowerWalk, and it’s the perfect partner for thicker carpets.

But before we officially unveil it at The Flooring Show 2017 in September, here are 5 reasons you should consider fitting this luxury new underlay beneath the carpets in your home (or stocking it in your showroom for customers to choose).


1. It’s very hardwearing

The polyurethane foam in PowerWalk is extra high density (130kg/m³) so it keeps your carpet looking good for longer, no matter how much your children drag their feet across it.

2. It performs under pressure

PowerWalk Gold springs back much better than a typical sponge rubber underlay product, giving your carpet that ‘just-fitted’ look even when walked across regularly.

3. It stops your carpet moving

The HD foam has excellent stability, keeping your carpet in its place and reducing the amount of wear and tear of your expensive pile during its lifetime. Think of it as a wise investment.

4. It keeps your rooms warmer

At an impressive 2.92 TOG, PowerWalk Gold offers excellent thermal insulation. So your whole room feels warmer and more comfortable. Plus you can lower your heating bills. 

5. It makes your home quieter

If you love the sound of silence or don’t want to wake your sleeping children (or partner after a night out), the sheer density of PowerWalk Gold means it has first-rate impact and sound insulation (44dB).

If you can’t wait until the The Flooring Show 2017 - held in Harrogate on 17-19 September – to take a look at PowerWalk, you can request a sample or find a stockist through our PowerWalk Gold product page.
