Natural Rubber Rug Pads

Choosing the Best Natural Rubber Rug Pad

Natural rubber out-grips and outperforms most traditional plastic padding, and is more sustainable than PVC or plastic rug pads. It's also safer on most floor finishes than PVC (aside from certain vinyl finishes that may not be suitable to combine with rubber). This is especially true with imported plastic padding, which often contains plasticizers that can harm your floor surface.

Benefits of a Natural Rug Pad

There are lots of benefits of using a natural rug pad like our rantural rubber rug pads. Here are a few benefits that we think make the biggest difference.

Eco-Friendly and Sustainable

Our rubber rug pads use natural rubber from real rubber trees so it is more sustainable and eco-friendly than other PVC and plastic rug padding. We won't lie to you and say that natural rubber is perfect. There have been issues with the natural rubber industry. However, it can be done responsibly and in a way that's sustainable – and that's what we go for.

While our Nature's Grip rug pad is our most eco-friendly mat, you can see all our eco-friendly options in our eco-friendly collection (both Super Lock Natural and Nature's Grip are in there too).

Non Slip Grip

Natural rubber is one of the best solutions for rug gripper out there. It creates a non slip rug pad that will grip your floor and rug without sticking to them like some rug grippers or carpet tape does.

This is especially important on hard floors that are often slippery or for smaller rugs and runner rugs that have a tendency to move around. While there are other solutions for getting a rug to stay in place such as rugs with a rubber backing, a rubber pad offers a safe, low profile solution perfect for door mats, entryway rugs, or other rugs in high-traffic areas.

For larger rugs like an area rug you may not need to worry about non slip and instead want more cushioning. In that case, a felt pad or memory foam pad might be a better choice. See more of these options in our cushion collection.

Safe For Flooring

Whether you have laminate flooring, hardwood flooring, or another type of hard surface floor, our natural rubber pads will protect your floor and your rug. Our natural rubber rug pads will never stain or discolor your floor surface.

Low Profile

With thin rugs, certain rug sizes, door mats, or hallway rugs, a thick rug pad can be a massive pain in the butt or even a tripping hazard. With a thin natural rubber rug pad, you can avoid too much cushion and let your rug shine without too much foam.

The one downfall of our thin rug pads, is you won't has as much cushion. The Super Lock Natural rug pad offers a comfortable level of padding with its waffle design, but it won't have as much padding as some of our felt rug pads or memory foam pads.

If you're looking for a bit more rug padding for a larger rug size or an area rug, we'd recommend a felt rug pad or memory foam rug pad.
