The made in the UK Optima underlay from floorwise, delivers commercial environments ultra durable underfoot comfort and carpet protection, helping to extend the life of carpets in busy areas such as hotel receptions, corridors and bar areas.

In a new composition that gives even more performance per pound, Optima has additional acoustic absorption and thermal insulation too. Thanks to its dense rubber crumb construction, Optima is the benchmark in high performance underlay for the most demanding of environments.

Using floorwise’s proprietary UHD+ construction, Optima is rated for Heavy Contract Use and is suitable for wheeled traffic, making it the natural choice in the hustle and bustle of hotel receptions and corridors. Just as suitable for corporate areas in sports stadiums, meeting rooms and anywhere that demands impeccable performance, optimum acoustics and longer life; Optima is the default choice for many contractors and specifiers:

“Our Optima underlay delivers exceptional performance from its recycled construction,” explains Richard Bailey, managing director, floorwise. “With performance enough for really demanding locations Optima also reduces sound by up to 31dB, quite a significant reduction and certainly helping to reduce noise in busy hospitality and entertainment venues.”

Meeting BS5808 Heavy Contract Use and with BS4790 Flammability Pass Low Radius, Optima can be specified for stretch fit or double stick installations with complete confidence and has the potential to extend the life of the carpet under normal maintenance conditions, helping to absorb the signs of wear from footfall and wheeled traffic.
