Underlay for Laminate Flooring

We have a variety of underlays to suit your requirements as well as your budget. It is important to note that most, if not all Top Brand Laminate Flooring Manufacturers will not cover any Warranty if Sub-Standard Underlays are used during installation.

Combilay: The most affordable underlay option being a 2mm thick Airothene which has a 200 Micron Plastic Membrane built on it. The Airothene serves to absorb sound created when walking on the Laminate Floors. It also serves as a suitable insulator of heat. The Plastic Membrane serves as a Vapor Barrier between the Sub-Floor & the Laminate Floor Boards in case of rising damp which can cause damage to the Floor Boards.

There are cheaper lower quality Underlays available on the market which are either thinner than 2mm Airothene or have an 80 Micron Plastic Vapour Barrier. Also available at a lower cost are all the above-mentioned options made of Recycled Material. You will be glad to know that the minimum quality we offer at Exclusive Floors is 2mm Thick Airothene with a 200 Micron Plastic Membrane, made of Virgin Plastic Material, not Recycled.

Plastic Vapor Barrier: This is a Plastic Membrane which is available in a range of thicknesses, 200 Micron being a durable standard for use in Laminate Flooring Installations to prevent Rising Damp from causing damage to Laminate Floor Boards. There are lower quality Plastic Vapor Barriers available on the market but at Exclusive Floors, we offer 200 Micron Virgin Plastic only! It is important to note that this product must be used in conjunction with one of the following Specialized Underlay Products which offer Cushioning, Superior Sound & Outstanding Heat Insulation Properties for the perfect installation:
