Award-Winning Excellence: Ball & Young’s Journey of Recognition

With a strong emphasis on research and development, Ball & Young has consistently pushed the boundaries of underlay technology, setting new industry standards. Throughout its history, the company has been recognized for its innovation and high-quality products.

In 1995, they unveiled their groundbreaking underlay product called Cloud 9, which won the prestigious Best New Product in the Market Place award at the NEC, Birmingham. This marked a significant milestone for the company. Cloud 9 continued to receive recognition, the earning title of “Best Underlay Manufacturer” at the Interiors Monthly Awards in 2015 and the CFJ Best Underlay Range award in 2016.

These accolades are a testament to their dedication to providing innovative and high-quality flooring solutions.

Unveiling Perfection

Ball & Young has a wide range of underlays to cater to various flooring needs. With a focus on innovation, Ball & Young offers only perfection for their customer. Take Roma for example. With a specific 0.8 tog rating, this rubber underlay is a great underlay to use with underfloor heating. This feature sets it apart from other underlays in the market.

Another notable product from their Cloud 9 collection is the Cloud 9 Cumulus 11mm. With an impressive 11mm thickness, the Cloud 9 Cumulus offers a plush, cushioned layer that enhances the comfort and performance of your flooring, perfect for luxury use where a very high degree of comfort is required.

The Cloud 9 Cumulus 11mm underlay provides a truly indulgent experience underfoot, with its dense, spongy texture. It adds a layer of luxury to any room, creating a soft and comfortable surface to walk on and suitable for any room in your house. 

Not only does the Cloud 9 Cumulus underlay offer superior comfort, but it also excels in sound proofing, minimizing the impact of footsteps and other noises, creating a quieter and more peaceful living environment.

The Cloud 9 Cumulus 11mm underlay provides effective thermal insulation properties, helping to retain heat within the room and reducing energy loss. This thermal insulation can contribute to increased energy efficiency and potential cost savings on heating bills.

Furthermore, the Cloud 9 Cumulus 11mm is manufactured using the innovative Ultrafresh, an advanced antimicrobial technology, providing an added layer of protection against bacteria, mould or mildew growth, ensuring a cleaner and healthier environment.

This Cloud 9 Cumulus is not only suitable for domestic use but also contract work with high character and wood block floors.
