How thick, How Dense & Which rooms is the Tredaire Sensation for?
The tredaire sensation is an 11m thick carpet underlay. This is thicker than most underlays and is designed to provide a good level of comfort and protection to your carpet and sub floor. It does this by absorbing the shock from foot traffic, which would damage your carpet or flooring in the absence of underlay.
By protecting the carpet and flooring, it also prolongs the life of it, which makes thick underlay a good investment.
The density is approximately 145kg/m3, which is a very high density compared to most other underlay products. A higher density may be slightly more difficult to work with during fitting, but is highly beneficial for protecting your carpet or flooring. It also allows the underlay to maintain firmness even through high levels of foot traffic.
The Tredaire Sensation is suitable for any room in your home. While the 11mm thickness can make it more difficult to fit around the stairs, the high density is desinged to take the heavy foot traffic.
Please see our alternative recommendations at the bottom of the page for other products suited to the stairs if this is what you are looking for.
This product can be very beneficial for rooms of relaxation in the house such as the living room, dining room, study or bedroom. The thickness and ability to withstand high foot traffic make it an incredibly practical option for your home.
How insulated is the Tredaire Sensation?
With a tog rating of 2.89, this product provides a high level of warmth. Although it is not the highest tog ratings you will find, it still provides excellent warmth which is ideal for your home.
This makes it ideal for rooms where comfort and warmth are required, such as the bedroom, office or living room.
The thickness is another contributing factor that makes this product an ideal option for those wanting extra warmth in the home.
A huge benefit of underlay with a high tog rating is the money that can be saved on energy bills, as it helps prevent warm air from escaping through the floor.
However, this product is not recommended for underfloor heating as this would require a low tog rating for the warmth to be able to travel through the carpet.

What’s the Sensation made from and who makes it?
The Tredaire Sensation is made of high quality PU foam. We have many customers looking for this specific material, as it is so easy to work with and provides excellent comfort and protection.
The light foam construction makes it easy to cut, handle and install, compared to more rigid structures such as rubber.
This high-quality material also has fantastic durability and resilience, which not only does a great job of absorbing shock from foot traffic but will also prolong the life of your carpet.
PU foam is also made from recycled materials, which is another reason it is so highly sought after, especially for those who have environmental concerns.
