Anti-slip and Anti-creep Underlay for Your RugBuddy

When choosing an underlay for your RugBuddy, (a rug underlay is sometimes called a ‘Rug Pad’), there are two issues to consider:

  • Safety – important in all situations
  • Thermal insulation – essential on tiles, stone, and concrete


Safety – rugs can be a hazard if they ruck-up or slip on the floor surface beneath.  For this reason an anti-creep or anti-slip rug pad is essential under the RugBuddy. When the RugBuddy is to be used on carpet or a wood/ laminate floor this is all you need.

You can add anti-creep or anti-slip underlays to your order* here:

* The underlay may be delivered separately from your RugBuddy.  Please allow up to 7 days for delivery, but it will usually be much quicker.


Thermal Insulation – on un-insulated tiles, stone, and concrete, it is important to have a thermal underlay under the RugBuddy.  Without thermal insulation the heat will soak into the floor and the RugBuddy will not warm up properly.  At the moment we don’t supply this type of underlay.

Felt carpet underlay works well and is not expensive. There’s a good range here . Just type ‘Envirolay’ into the search box on the right hand side to see the full range. I recommend Envirolay 28oz as it is only 7mm thick. You can buy a roll, half roll, or by the square metre, but you will need to cut, trim and (possibly) tape pieces side-by-side to suit your rug. (I’m not connected with this company in any way).
