"RCH Carpets supplies Underlay, Grippers and Door Bars"
As part of our carpet supply and fit service, we also supply all of the items required to install your new floor including underlay, grippers and door bars. There are various types of underlay for you to choose from, however some underlays suit carpet types better than others.
Some of the most common underlay types include:
Rubber Carpet Underlay, PU Foam Underlay, Wool Felt Underlay, Combination Underlay.
The different underlay types are simply attributed towards comfort and costs, cheaper underlays are generally made from recycled materials which keeps the cost down and leads to a perfect finish once carpet has been laid over it. Although PU foam is a cheaper option then rubber, rubber underlay tends to wear quicker and does not provide the same level of comfort and springiness from the carpet.
The most popular underlays include PU foam which also helps with property heat retention and makes the carpet feel warmer in the cooler months as it prevents the loss of thermal heat through the carpets direct contact.
With RCH Carpets you can either choose your own underlay as per your carpet or flooring requirement or during your estimate / quotation we can provide advice / guidance on selecting an underlay. We can source and supply the underlay for you when the carpet fitting job is due to commence.
We also supply high quality grippers that will keep your carpet firmly taught and will prevent the carpet lifting from the outer grippers and internal grippers. Common areas where carpets fail due to misalignment or poor fitting are stairways and areas with curvature. At RCH Carpets we ensure that the carpet is cut and stretched to a high standard to prevent lift and wear.
We always advise clients that opting for cheaper carpets can result in quicker wear, this can also lead to carpet lifting and general wear and tear.
We also supply door bars in brass or silver or wooden ones (on request).
