Broad Range of Rug Pad Materials

  • Rubber Pads: Rubber provides excellent grip and traction. On smooth floors like hardwood, tile, or laminate, a rubber rug pad prevents the rug from sliding or shifting. This reduces the risk of slips, trips, and falls. These pads are durable and moisture-resistant.
  • Felt: Felt rug pads cushion your rug and make walking on it more comfortable. They reduce foot and joint impact by adding padding. These pads protect hardwood, laminate, and tile floors from scratches and scuffs. Felt pads reduce floor damage by absorbing foot traffic and furniture weight.
  • Felt + Rubber: Felt + rubber rug pads are suitable for hardwood, tile, laminate, and carpeted floors. Felt + rubber rug pads are versatile and provide cushioning, grip, floor protection, and sound absorption. They balance comfort, stability, and functionality for rugs and floors.
  • Memory Foam: Memory foam rug pads provide luxurious cushioning, pressure relief, and sound absorption while protecting your floors. For extra comfort and support under rugs, they are ideal.
  • PVC: PVC (polyvinyl chloride) rug pads are synthetic. Adhesives or additives in some PVC rug pads may damage the flooring. To avoid problems, check the manufacturer's recommendations or consult with a flooring professional.
