MCT – Modified Carpet Trim

Modified Carpet Trim

Based on the original “CT” design, we modified the reveal of this anodized aluminum trim to be wider, adding strength to the transition where carpet meets hard surface. Used primarily in commercial applications, the MCT metal carpet trim also looks beautiful in retail and residential flooring.

Provide anodized aluminum strip with reveal at top edge, for carpet protection and integral provision for anchorage to mortar bed or substrate. To be installed with leg under hard surface flooring where the carpet and hard surface meet. Height to match, tile, stone or wood thickness. Reveal width and finish to be determined by architect.

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.
