UNDERLAYS

Carpets still dominate the UK flooring market and consequently there are a huge array of carpet underlays on the market, although surprisingly few manufacturers. The underlay market can be divided into three segments, blown and crumb rubber, wool and hair felt and the new generation lightweight "Advanced Polymer" underlay, dominated by CLOUD 9.

Ball & Young’s Cloud 9 underlays are by far and away our biggest sellers. From the budget 8mm Cosi-Step through to the 10mm Super Contract and the super luxury 11mm Cumulus, there’s and underlay to suit any location. We also stock for underfloor heating the flat blown rubber underlay, Roma plus the Cloud 9 branded Radiance Pu foam. For traditionalists there are four types of wool felt underlay from one of the longest established producers, Anglo Recycling. Please click on one of the logos below for more information:

 


BALL & YOUNG are the market leaders in Pu based underlay, mostly under the Cloud 9 banner. Unlike any other underlay that has been produced before, it is very lightweight, totally smooth on both sides with exceptional powers of recovery from static loading. We keep seven Cloud 9 ranges, six others under the Blue Heaven and Cosi heading plus Roma, a flat sponge rubber for underfloor heating.


NIMBUS
Although only 7mm thick it is still suitable for heavy domestic use, total roll weight only 13kg!

CIRRUS
The most popular of the trio by far. 9mm thick and a roll weight of just 15kg.

CUMULUS
Aimed at the most prestigious end of the market, at 11mm thick it offers totally luxurious feel and still only weighs 18kg.

SILVER LINING
Designed for contract stick down carpet installation work, it has a slightly firmer core to the domestic ranges, giving it a feel more akin to a heavy crumb rubber underlay. Roll weight is 13kg, 6mm thickness.

CONTRACT
Thickness: 8mm. Weight of roll: 20Kg

SUPER CONTRACT

Like Contract and Silver Lining it is designed for stick down installations. 10mm thick it is specifically used in luxury contract locations.

The whole range carry a wear guarantee simply described as " For the life of the carpet that’s on it". To find out more about this remarkable underlay simply click on the Ball & Young logo below:

Duralay products are produced in Lancashire by the Interfloor group. We stock their two popular crumb rubber products, Durafit 650 for contract stick-down installation of carpets and System 10, a loose-lay carpet installation system that doesn’t damage the sub-floor beneath. We also stock two of their wood/laminate underlays, Heatflow and Timbermate Excel Silver.
