Not available on the high street, so shop here for home delivery
- The AL/ANF door thresholds are a stylish and secure way to join a piled carpet to vinyl flooring or floorboards. The curved edge of the door threshold strip creates a rounded edge and avoids a trip hazard
- A smooth, curved edge to slope down to the vinyl or floorboards.
- The two floors to be joined should be level with each other for the ANF to lie flat. However, if yours are slightly different, chock a slim piece of wood underneath and raise the base.
- The carpet is gripped under tension by the teeth, whilst on the other side the floorcovering lies under the curved edge. Therefore, there are no raw edges or rucked up carpet.
- The AL/ANF carpet trim is suitable for carpet up to around 8.5mm thick when compressed, plus underlay.
- Made from a high grade aluminium in three finish options: satin, brushed (with a slight golden hue to the aluminium), bright (mirror-finish aluminium effect) and satin (brushed aluminium effect). Please note, there may be a slight shade difference from batch to batch..
- The visible door strip is around 19mm wide and is available in 900mm (90 cm) or 2.71m (2.715m) lengths.
- Otherwise known in the trade as a single naplock or single carpet door strip.
Fitting tips for the AL/ANF aluminium door bars
