Make the informed choice when selecting your Underlay

Our new Digital Marketing Campaign promotes the benefits of choosing Dunlop Carpet Cushion to partner up with your new carpet investment.

In the market there are some inferior carpet underlays where the quality is inconsistent due to the type of materials and processes used, and in a lot of cases these products do not even meet basic requirements of the soft underlay standard.

We want to educate you the consumer on some basic facts effecting the purchase decision of your carpet underlay and to be aware of the differences that exist.

The campaign highlights three key areas including Luxury and Feel, Healthy Living and Performance.

What to look for in a carpet cushion

Are you buying new carpet?  What about the cushioning underneath?

NZ’s only 5 Tick Certified Carpet Cushion

Dunlop Flooring is proud to be the only manufacturer in New Zealand that is 5 tick certified against the recognised standard for soft underlays AS4288:2003.

This standard sets out the minimum requirements for the manufacture of underlay, and provides an industry accepted level of quality, performance and safety that all soft underlays should meet.

As the only manufacturer in New Zealand to receive 5 tick certification against the standard, Dunlop Flooring has proven to SAI Global (an independent company that verifies compliance) that in house procedures, on-going testing, product quality, material sourcing and traceability is demonstrated at a consistently high level to ensure the requirements under the standard are always exceeded.
