Carpet joiners is a term which describes a wide number of products. Other terms used to describe similar products include door thresholds, trim, door bars, floor trims, edging, Z bars, naplocks…And so the list goes on! It is not a specific product but refers to all designs which join two sections of carpet, such as in door ways, and joining a carpet to another type of flooring such as floorboards, vinyl or laminate.
Joining two carpets in a doorway can be achieved using the Premier Double Z9, the AL92 or the deluxe option of the Feline 2. All these options include a base gripper section, which sits under the carpet and pulls it under tension. They are designed for a quality loop, woven or tufted around 9mm thick.
If your carpet is thicker, then the Premier Double Z13 is ideal and if your carpet is flat and thin then try the Premier Double Z4.
The Premier Double Z9 is designed with one base strip which is removable; the profile then joins carpet to hard floors such as laminate, tiles or stone, as is the Premier SQ, the aluminium AL10, AL Cap It and the deluxe Feline 1.
If you wish to transition from a carpet to floorboards or vinyl, then you will need a curved edge carpet-joiner, such as the Premier Single 9, AL/ANF or Feline BNF.
The new Ali Tramline Z metal door bars connect the vast array of modern LVT floorcoverings and laminates with carpet. The Tramline Z features a recessed section in which you slide in a section of your LVT or laminate. It therefore matches your flooring for a discrete join.
Most of the carpet trim products we sell are offered in a choice of lengths up to 2.7m. This means they can be used for creating a transition strip across a room between one type of floor-covering and another and can be butted up, end to end, for requirements over 2.7m.
A cover plate sits over the surface and covers up where the two floorcoverings meet. There is no gripper base strip underneath the carpet to hold it in place. The Posh and the Premier Cover plate are two popular options and can be used with all types of flooring.
The invention of Ramps and Two-Way Ramps in the Premier Collection provides an excellent and safe solution to joining two floors which are at slightly different heights. This typically happens during renovations when tiled floors are installed and require a screed underneath.
We offer a choice of stair nosings and Lips to provide a smart, neat right-angled edge, in a choice of metal finishes and profile sizes.
Some of the floor trims we offer come with a self-adhesive strip and therefore require no other type of fixing to the floor. Most are suitable for joining different styles of hard floors e.g. a wood floor to a ceramic tiled floor. However, the compression ramp is suitable for joining carpets to a hard floor, when they are at different levels.
