Give your new flooring the best start to life with Underlay from Imagine Floors by Airstep.

They say it’s what’s inside that counts and while that’s true, we think what’s underneath is just as important.


Underlay is designed to prolong the life of your new flooring and can provide protection against the elements if they’re prone to rising up through your subfloors.


Here at Imagine Floors by Airstep we offer four varieties of dedicated Floating Floor Underlay with each solution tailored to fix a specific issue that you may face.


AcoustiStep, for example, focuses on noise reduction and sound absorption, while Drilay is designed to provide a moisture barrier. Timbermax, on the other hand, is the perfect solution for those who want stronger thermal protection for their floors.


We’re also excited to stock Helix 700 – a patented cross-linked underlay that is made in Denmark and designed for use in situations where the installation of underlay would have traditionally been difficult such as in homes with Vinyl Floors.


Each option also provides a collection of multi-purpose support features that make it easy to find the right Underlay for your home.


Please Note: In most cases, Underlay is used with Engineered Timber Flooring or Laminate Floors. Apart from Helix 700, Underlay is not designed for use with Luxury Vinyl Planks as these floorboards make use of a glue down installation method rather than a floating design.


Browse our range of Underlay below and get in touch with your preferred local flooring expert once you’ve made your decision.
