The Premier Trims Z13 door thresholds transition from thick carpet to tiles & wood
Buy now over 10 different finishes
- The Premier Trims Z13 door thresholds are an elegant and secure way to join unusually thick carpet 13-20mm thick (when compressed) to tiles or wood 13mm deep.
- For most carpets and hard flooring the Premier Z9 is the more suitable design i.e. for carpets which are around 9-12mm thick.
- The two floors should be level with each other for the Z13 to lie flat. However, if yours are slightly different, stack the free, 3mm thick MDF strips (included) underneath.
- If your carpet needs to be raised up to the level of the pins, buy the Easyshims to create a ramp.
- Once fitted, the Premier Z13 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.
- Made with a solid brass bar, with rounded edges, in a choice of 10 smart, natural metal finishes.
- Available in 4 lengths which can be cut to measure with a sharp hack-saw: 900mm, 1000mm, 1800mm and 2700mm.
The visible bar or top of these door bars is 30mm (just over 1″) wide and approximately 4mm thick.
Fitting tips for the Premier Trims Z13
- This Premier Z13 Bar is the same product as the Premier Double Z13 profile, which joins carpets to carpets. When converting to the carpet to hard floor (Premier Z option), simply peel off one side of the metal hook base along the scored groove, using a pair of pliers and turning anti clockwise. This is easily done and takes a couple of minutes.
- Thick carpets can be compressed onto the pins before napping down (see above).
- Cut to length with a sharp hack-saw.
- Stick, using a propriety adhesive, nail or screw (avoiding any underfloor heating).
