Which underlay is right for me?

Which underlay is right for me?

  • 3mm Combilay and tape Suitable for all sub-floors that require a damp proof membrane. Combilay has combined cushioning, sound proofing and damp proofing, meaning you only have to lay 1 layer rather than 2.
  • 1.8mm foam underlay Basic underlay for use on dry, firm and level surfaces.
  • 7mm Unifelt underlay Suitable for uneven sub-floors. Because it is more substantial unifelt underlay also gives good heat and sound installation.
  • Damp proof membrane Use with foam and underfelt underlay on concrete sub-floors to provide damp proofing.
  • Standard and Excel heavy duty underlays Ideal for use under natural wood veneer floors. The excel heavy duty underlay also has an added intergral damp proof layer.
