The Rugs Warehouse anti-slip rugs page. Here you will find our range of rugs with anti-slip backing, sometimes referred to as gel backing. Non-slip rugs feature a special material on the back, which reduce movement on carpet as well as wood and laminate floors. This feature is available in some machine-made rugs that are usually very thin such as chenille rugs and flat-woven ones, but is not used in handmade rugs. Anti-slip underlays are available for purchase in hardware stores for rugs that do not feature a non-slip backing.
