Rubber Underlay

The End Of An Era – Rubber Underlay Manufacturing At Airstep

Throughout our Bridgestone years and well into our Airstep days, we proudly manufactured rubber underlay to suit Australia’s needs right here at our Dandenong facility in Melbourne’s Southeast.


In recent years, however, we have come to the conclusion that rubber underlay manufacturing no longer meets the needs of our customers, or our business.


Although we had four strong decades servicing the Australian market with our rubber products, we have switched our manufacturing focus to foam underlays, as they are more sustainable both for the planet, and for our client’s back pockets.


Put simply, we have made this decision as it allows us to provide more economical solutions for our customers, while also having a positive impact on the environment and the world around us. As companies strive to create a greener future, we want to be part of the solution, and this choice allows us to assist both our customers, and other businesses (such as Rip Curl and Foamco) to enhance their sustainability.



Alternatives To Rubber Underlay

Our exit from the rubber underlay manufacturing sector does not impact our ability to provide underlay products that meet the Australian market’s needs.


Our extensive range of foam underlay – which is manufactured at our Dandenong South site and provided to our customers via our Australia wide network of locations and distributors – can easily fulfil the needs of both residential and commercial products and offers a comprehensive replacement for our rubber underlay offering.


You can browse our range of residential, conventionally laid, dual bond and hard flooring underlays by visiting the relevant sections of our website.  Or, if you have been searching for Airstep rubber underlay to suit your needs and would like some assistance in determining which foam underlay product is best for your project, please reach out to us via or on +613 9794 3888 to speak with one of our friendly underlay experts.
