Carpet Underlay

QA Flooring Solutions provides quality underlay for all our customers. We understand that a great floor isn’t just the technical qualities that it brings, it’s about comfort, too. And where else should you feel that but your home? Our carpet underlays will add to the comfort you deserve to feel in your own home. 

Not sure which underlay you need? No Problem – Use our Traffilay System

Overview -  A carpet underlay goes beneath your carpet flooring, and depending on the underlay’s material and construction, you will gain several benefits.  Carpet underlays are great for fixing points of concern for your flooring, such as soft carpet vulnerability.  Many homeowners opt for carpet underlays for different flooring, to minimise sound transfer and meet building regulation requirements.  If you are unsure what underlay you need, check our Traffilay system to help determine which underlay would benefit you the most.   Benefits -    Different Carpet Underlays come with different benefits:   
  • Cushioning - One of the most popular benefits of underlay.  
  • Smoothing - Some subfloors have minor imperfections, and a carpet underlay can smooth them out to create a more uniform feel and appearance. 
  • Protection - Underlays take the brunt of pressure when stepped on.  
  • Thermal Properties - Some underlays come with insulation, whereas some come with the ability to allow more effective underfloor heating.  
  • Noise Dampening - Airborne and impact noise can be reduced through the use of an acoustic carpet underlay. 
  • Moisture Barrier - Having a vapour barrier will block any moisture coming from above or below, protecting your floor and subfloor.

We offer a wide range of carpet underlay, each one suiting the different needs of our customers. Do you need an underlay for a light traffic area? Take a look at our FloorSure range; a light traffic carpet underlay collection that gives the maximum comfort, without compromising on quality. 

Our medium traffic underlays, such as SpringBack or Pure HD, are both made up of a PU underlay with excellent cushioning and compression recovery.

For high-traffic areas, which are a favourite of commercial properties, take a look at our PURE HD & UHD and PowerWalk range of carpet underlays for an example of what you can expect. They have a high density that allows them to resist the compression that comes with being walked on constantly, meaning they maintain their form with a shocking resilience. 

Breathe carpet underlay is a product available from QA that is highly innovative in the field. It is made from 100% natural wood fibres. Breathe has a unique ability to filter out dust particles, even the smallest ones, thanks entirely to these fibres, even the smallest particles are captured and prevented from ruining the air quality of your home, for a fresher, cleaner, more comfortable place to live.

With our Breathe carpet underlay, you can improve the air quality of your home by a large degree, but it’s also supremely comfortable to walk on. It’s an easy-to-install option that is environmentally friendly, being a sustainable choice that is biodegradable. On top of this, the material is of consistent quality and will meet every BS5808 performance standard.  

Yes. For luxurious new carpets, you want an underlay that will not only retain the feel of the carpet but keep it looking like new flooring for longer.

Our Pure range of carpet underlay is as indulgent as it is luxurious. Made from the highest-grade PU foam, it feels great underfoot and has excellent compression recovery. This is one of our most popular types of carpet underlay, but depending on the thicknesses of your carpet and carpet underlay, it may result in an overly soft and uncomfortable feel. Consult our team to ensure our Pure range is right for you.

Our CombiFelt Acoustic carpet underlay gives a firm but truly plush feel underfoot and is widely used with Axminster and quality twist carpets in luxury settings. This is the best underlay for luxury carpets with high thickness. This is because the density is higher, ensuring your carpet underlay can take most of the pressure. 

QA Flooring Solutions puts the customer first. We are committed to high-quality customer service for the extensive selection of underlays and other flooring products available and have the biggest stock holding in the UK.
