Gripping pads are popular for many reasons. They are very thin and give no additional cushioning to the area rug. The rug should be very dense to make up for this type of pad. The pad has a waffle pattern with lots of holes. The surface of this pad has a lot of grip and will keep area rugs in place.

Laying and protecting your area rug. All area rugs that are placed on hardwood floors or laminate floors should be laid over top of a good non-slip underlayment which can prevent accidents.

If you have a light area rug you can secure it by means of a special mesh backing or with the use of bonding strips. Another benefit of the area rug underlayment pad is it is useful if you are placing the area rug over an existing carpet. This will stop the area rug from creeping and wrinkling and it will also give you protection for the carpet if the area rug is prone not to be colorfast.
