Airstep waffle carpet underlay provides superior underfoot comfort and the correct support for the carpet. Choosing the correct carpet underlay can help to prevent the risk of stretching and bubbling over time and extend the performance and the life of the carpet.
Airstep residential carpet underlay has a unique waffle design which absorbs sound, reducing normal noise transmission between floors. Airstep carpet underlay is manufactured with pure natural rubber from rubber trees - a sustainable resource.
Airstep carpet underlay, without the addition of any chemical additives, shows a natural resistance to fungal growth and therefore does not need to be treated with chemicals. Airstep rubber underlays have been shown not only to resist the growth of bacteria, mould and mildew in itself, but to positively affect connecting surfaces, thus reducing the growth of allergens in the carpet.
When it comes to Asthma and allergies, a well maintained carpet and underlay can help to improve the quality of the air. With a hard surface, the particles of dust settle on the floor and have a tendency to be disturbed by foot traffic and float back into the air, whereas, with carpet and underlay, the particles of dust and allergens remain trapped in the carpet until they can be vacuumed away. Airstep rubber underlays are dust free, lint free and fibre free.
Airstep underlays help to reduce heat loss through the subfloor, which helps to make the home more energy efficient. Airstep underlays are stringently tested for Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) and are considered to be of ‘insignificant health risk’.
Airstep underlay is suitable for use with approved floor heating systems to the surface temperature of 40°C. The Airstep Carpet Underlay has the least resistance for the passage of heat from the system to the room. Airstep underlays are made in Australia, using high quality raw materials.
