When Clarks International replaced the floor at its store at Clarks Village, Street, Somerset, they required superior cushioned flooring in the children’s fitting area. Consequently, Clarks specified InstaLay self-adhesive acoustic underlay as it offered several important benefits.

Manufactured from environmentally friendly rubber crumb from recycled vehicle tyres, InstaLay is a high performance cushion underlay which provides excellent anti-fatigue characteristics, as required by Clarks.

InstaLay advantages

  • Created a safe environment for the children.
  • Offered greater comfort for shop staff who spend much of the day on their knees undertaking fittings.
  • Was rapidly loose laid over existing sub-floor.
  • Enabled a quick, clean installation without the need for any wet adhesives.
  • Avoided the extended lead times associated with cushion-backed carpet tiles and provided a fast installation program.
  • Greater flexibility of choice as InstaLay transforms any standard carpet tile into a cushioned flooring system.
  • InstaLay’s low grab adhesive allows tiles to be lifted and replaced easily during future maintenance.
  • Very durable and does not collapse or degrade over time.

The 50m2 of InstaLay was simply loose laid without the need for time consuming CS70 sub-floor preparations. The release film was then peeled back in stages and the carpet tiles positioned onto the low grab adhesive membrane and pressed into place.
