How thick, How Dense & Which rooms is the Underlay4u 9mm for?
The Underlay4U is a 9mm thick carpet underlay which is designed to withstand high foot traffic. The thickness and density (more below) help to absorb shock from high foot fall, which protects your carpet from damage.
This product has a high density, which does a fantastic job of prolonging the life of your carpet. It does this by providing cushioning between the carpet and subfloor, which allows the underlay to absorb shock from foot traffic.
Instead of this shock being absorbed by the carpet and causing damage, the underlay is designed to absorb it and keep the carpet in great condition.
The Underlay4U 9mm magic is perfect for the stairs, hall and landing, due to the 9mm thickness and high density. It is easy to cut and fit around the complex construction of stairs, but also provides the protection and density you require.
The stairs endure the most concentrated foot traffic, which is why a high density is required.
If you are looking to invest in one product for the whole house, then this product is a great value for money option that can be used throughout your home. Although there are other product that offer higher comfort levels, see alternatives at the bottom of the page, it still provides a good level of cushioning whilst protecting your carpet.
How will the Underlay4u Magic 9mm help with Insulation?
The Underlay4U has a high tog rating of 2.91, which is one of the highest you can buy. You could also pay more for a slightly higher tog rating. And this product offers higher density than the other high tog products.
A high tog rating is vital for those looking for extra warmth in their homes, especially in rooms that may have cold subfloors or let through draughts.
The insulation of underlay is designed to keep in hot air and help prevent it from escaping through the floor. This is a worthwhile investment as it can save you money in the long term on energy bills.
However, it is important to note that a high tog rating is not suitable for underfloor heating. A low tog rating is required for this as the heat needs to travel through the underlay and carpet, which a high tog rating may prevent.
Underlay4u 9mm Sound Reduction properties
This carpet underlay has a sound reduction rating of 32db. This will reduce impact noise. Impact noise includes sounds such as footsteps, jumping or dropping objects.
A rating of 32db is ideal for households that want to reduce the sounds of foot steps throughout their rooms. Sound reducing underlay is required for areas that have rooms underneath them, so wouldn’t be necessary for the ground floor that doesn’t have a floor underneath it.
Sound reduction underlay is also very popular amongst those who live in apartments and are concerned about noise travelling to those who live underneath. It is a simple investment that has a big impact on sound in your home, and many are impressed by the peace and quiet it creates.
If sound reduction is a high priority, then you may want to take a look at our alternative products, such as the Tredaire Colours Red.
