The door threshold bars – Premier Single 9 with a rounded profile
Choose from ten attractive metal finishes
- The door threshold bars – Premier Single 9 are an elegant and secure way to join a carpet to a thinner floorcovering, such as vinyl, LVT, Amtico or bare floorboards.
- This design of door bar features a smooth, curved edge which slopes down from the carpet pile to the vinyl or floor boards.
- The two base floors should be level with each other as the Single 9 needs to lie flat (see diagram). However, if yours are slightly different, stack the MDF strips (also known as Easywedges and included free of charge) underneath the Single 9 and raise/tilt the base.
- The carpet is gripped under tension by the teeth, whilst on the other side the floorcovering lies under the curved edge. This means no raw edges or rucked up carpet.
- The Single 9 is suitable for most qualities of carpet around 9-12 mm thick. The underlay is cut short of the door bar. If your carpet is thicker, try the Premier Single 13.
- Made with a solid brass bar, with rounded edges, in a choice of 10 smart, natural metal finishes.
- Available 900mm, 1000mm, 1800mm and 2700mm.
- Also known as Premier Trim Single or a Single Naplock.
Fitting tips for door threshold bars – Premier Single 9
- Cut to length with a sharp hack-saw.
- Stick, using a propriety adhesive, nail or screw (avoiding any underfloor heating).
- The underlay stops short of the door threshold.
- Thick carpets can be compressed onto the pins before napping down (see above).
- Once fitted, Premier Door Bars Single 9 can be ‘napped down’ with a carpeted wood block, which will give the carpet an extra firm grip on the pins and can reduce the height by 3mm.
