We have a new product designed to overcome the problem that exists in almost every home – the difference in heights between flooring. Carpets can be ramped up to 20mm to give a smooth transition; ideal for wheel chair access or simply leveling the height between 2 rooms.
Easyshims are for use when installing carpet next to hardwood, ceramic tile, stone and marble floors. They give a flush transition in doorways when there is a difference in height between the surface in one room and another.
We supply a Pack of 4 Easy shims.
Easyshim Technical Information - Each shim is 36"/91cm wide with an 8"/20cm ramp. It is available in heights of 6mm, 9mm, 12mm and 15mm.
Choosing the right shim…Subtract 12mm from the height of the hard floor (standard carpet thickness including gripper)… for thin carpet use thicker shims and for thick carpet use thinner shims.
Leave a ¼"/6mm gap between the carpet shim and the hard surface… for thin carpet decrease the gap and for thick carpet increase the gap…
Install the gripper on top of the Easyshim maintaining the ¼"/6mm gap. Install underlay and carpet, tucking the carpet into the ¼"/6mm gap. Rub the pins down with a hammer to prevent the pins from poking through. Use side shims where the Easyshim protrudes into a hall way/room.
