Your stairs carpets take the highest amount of foot traffic and punishment in your home. Therefore, your underlay needs to be hard wearing and durable, as light domestic underlays will not provide the protection required on stairs. The underlay has to protect the carpet on the edges of each stair so choosing a quality product fit for the job is important.
We recommend our heavy duty, eco friendly, combination underlay's which have a comfortable felt top and a crumb rubber base made from recycled car tyres, or a sponge rubber underlay or perhaps a quality PU foam underlay like Powerstep 9mm . For the best results, we advise that underlays under 10mm thick are used for stair carpets.
