Our range of standard underlay can be used with any engineered hardwood flooring or laminate flooring (not parquet blocks). It acts as a cushion between your floor and the subfloor and is ideal for anyone looking for sound proofing or thermal resistance. Another advantage of our standard underlay is that you can loose lay your engineered flooring straight on top of them, making the installation process more straight forward. We have a variety of standard underlays available so there is sure to be something that will suit your installation and budgetary requirements.
Why should I choose a standard underlay?
If you want to float your wooden floor, then you will need an underlay. Our range of standard underlays are great for general use. They act as a cushioning layer and help to reduce sound vibrations from the surface of your floor.
When choosing your underlay, it is important to remember that the thickness or colour of the underlay does not make any difference. If you require sound proofing, you should look at the decibel rating, and if you require thermal insulation you should look at the tog rating. For more detailed information about underlays, see Guide to Underlay.
If you are unsure how to use the underlay correctly, please either call our sales office or see our Installation and Fitting Guide, which has a section on fitting hardwood floors with underlay.
