Fitting Door Thresholds and Floor Trims

Follow the manufacturers’ fitting instructions
Brief installation instructions for fitting door thresholds sold on our website can be found on the individual product pages. For some products there are also product videos featured.

Expert installers
If you are unsure how to fit a product, it is recommended that you use the services of an expert flooring fitter.

Use the correct tools
Always use a sharp hack-saw to cut door thresholds and floor trims to size.

Returns
Once cut or fitted, it is not possible to return your product. Please see our full terms of business.

Underfloor heating
Check for underfloor heating before screwing into a floor.

Protective tape
Remove any surface, protective tape only once the installation is completed and then wipe with a dry cloth to remove any finger marks.

Cover plates
These fit over the top of the join between two floor-coverings and protect the edges of both. There is no spiked, base section to hold the carpet firm and therefore any carpet will require fixing with an alternative method e.g. gripper. Choose a suitable width of plate to sufficiently cover this area.

Under-carpet base section
These are an integral part of thresholds designed to join carpet. They fit under the carpet and are therefore hidden from view. Teeth punched into the base section grip and hold the carpet, helping to keep it under tension. The base section of the threshold needs to be securely attached to the floor using a traditional screw in method or a special flooring fixative.

Fitting door thresholds with self-adhesive tape
Prior to removing the backing tape, ensure all surfaces are clean, free of dirt, dust, paint and grease. Measure up and cut the threshold or trim to measure, before removing the backing tape.

Floating floors
If one or more of your floor-coverings to be joined is floating (expands and contracts e.g. some woods and laminates), then you will need to use a floor trim designed for floating floors e.g. Premier Euro Floating, AL/AC38SF, Premier Ramps, Premier Compression Ramps.
