Rug padding serves a number of different purposes for your rug. Most importantly, it prevents your rug from sliding to avoid any injures to yourself or others. In other cases, it can also keep your rug from buckling up when you have furniture on it, and protect both your floor and the rug from each other.
Rubber Anchor Pad
The most common type of pad and the most popular is the “Rubber Anchor,” which serves as our standard pad. This pad is a rubber sheet reinforced with fibers to prevent tears and grip your floor and rug together.
When a rug is lying on the carpet, it tends to buckle up when there is furniture on it. A thick pad holds the rug in place to prevent too much buckling. It can also be used on hard surfaces if you have a very thin rug that needs additional cushioning.
