We offer a complete line of rug padding for hard surface or carpet for any need you may have.
Cushion-air, non skid pad. This pad is very thin with tremendous gripping power for small rugs. It is made of rubber and polymer and won’t mark, discolor or stick to your floors.
Luxehold, Area Rug Pad. Luxehold is our best performing area rug pad. Similar to a fiber pad, but with a unique grid pattern that helps keep your area rug from moving. The bottom has a non-skid surface to keep the pad and rug in place. Luxehold gives a firm body to your area rug and won’t stain, discolor or stick to your floor.
