CTC Bar is an aluminum trim designed to separate two different flooring products, both hard surface and soft surface flooring. Like our CTC Edge, this item protects the edges of tile from chipping, and can be used decoratively within a floor layout with multiple types of flooring.

  • Vertical and horizontal applications, floors and cladding, are suitable for CTC Bar installation
  • Building entries where tile meets the walk-off mats is a common application

CTC Bar Drawing

HOW TO RADIUS CTC Trims and Transitions can easily be modified and installed in a radius or curve using the following directions as a guide. Using a tin snips or other appropriate tool, cut the notches out of perforations in leg. The number of open holes required is dependent on the size of the radius. The more perforations that are cut the more bendable the product becomes. (If bending the CTC Joint, you will need to cut the leg on both sides.) Then slowly bend the CTC Trim into the desired arc. CTC Transitions can be shaped for inside or outside radiuses. We strongly suggest the use of a template to pre-shape transitions strips prior to installation. This will prevent “kinking” of materials. A template can be created out of any sturdy sheet material such as plywood or masonite.
