Comfort guide
Look for our easy guide on comfort. The higher the rating the better the comfort. Make sure you try the different options.
Density is a key contributer to comfort which includes the quality of material used. MaxbondTM products only use high performance comfort foams giving you the best comfort.
Thickness is a key factor to overall comfort, normally the thicker the better but this depends on the density it is combined with. The number shown represents a nominal thickness in mm.
Antimicrobial Protection
Options are available that include antimicrobial protection proven to inhibit the growth of bacteria, mould, mildew and dustmites for a healthier home.

Partner your new carpet with New Zealand’s most trusted and comfortable carpet cushion.

There are a large number of systematic processes that we undertake, which when combined, create Maxbond™ quality Carpet Cushion.

When it comes to materials we only use:

  • New, high quality foam off-cuts from New Zealand and European furniture and bed factories that have the required comfort properties. We do not use foam made for non-comfort applications or foam recovered from old furniture and beds. We also do not source foams from Asia due to inconsistent results around quality (for example, performance, fillers, cleanliness, volatile organic compounds (VOCs) emissions).
  • The high quality Dunlop Slipcoat Laminate System which ensures installers have an optimum environment for installing carpet as well as a good level of moisture resistance.
  • High quality Dunlop Quadmesh™ webbing developed for leading structural support, adding the assurance of correct installation, no stretching, easy trimming, and extra support for areas under heavy loads.

Our processes are state of the art, and include:

  • Innovative foam mixing and cutting processes to ensure the spring in the foam is retained and provides a consistent high quality feel.
  • Sophisticated filtering systems for removing materials that don’t contribute to comfort.
  • Lot control systems enabling full traceability of finished product right throughout the manufacturing process.
  • Well-trained, experienced, and dedicated staff focussed on delivering Advanced underfoot comfort.

Dunlop Carpet Cushion is proven to perform and, of course, we are proud to confirm that it is all made right here in New Zealand.

Not all carpet underlays are created equal.
