A quality underlay is an essential investment if you’re going to get the most out of new flooring, especially carpet. Fortunately, that’s exactly what Interfloor provides with its hugely popular Duralay range.
Interfloor, itself part of the larger Victoria group, was born from the merger of Duralay and Tredaire in 2002. It still produces fantastic underlays under both names, as well a range of related accessories through its Gripperods and Stikatak brands.
Duralay in particular has a reputation for great quality, with Interfloor consistently using the best materials in the manufacturing process. Ultra-high density crumb and sponge rubber give these underlays impressive heat and sound insulation qualities, making them ideal for busy homes and workplaces of all kinds.
Crumb rubber helps to protect and support your flooring, ensuring it remains comfortable and looks fantastic for years to come. With a lower tog rating, sponge rubber is better suited for use with underfloor heating – beneath carpet or even hard flooring.
Duralay’s makers may prioritise quality but they also take environmental responsibility extremely seriously. The brand’s crumb rubber products, for example, are made from approximately 80 per cent recycled content, with Interfloor responsible for recycling more than three million car tyres a year.
The company is also committed to keeping its factory running in the most sustainable way possible and regularly invests in new technologies and techniques. Since 2008, for example, it’s reduced emissions by more than 90 per cent.
With all of that said, you have a decision to make: which amazing Duralay underlay will you opt for? Perhaps it’ll be the Duralay King, which can be used anywhere in the home and has been engineered specifically for use with underfloor heating. If you’re after something a little thicker and even stronger, consider the Kensington Deluxe – it boasts a heavy commercial rating and is guaranteed for the lifetime of your carpet.
