MCT – Modified Carpet Trim

The Magic of Ceramic Tool is our KnowledgeExperienceCustomer Service

Our metal trims accommodate tile, carpet, vinyl of all kinds, wood and stone flooring, helping designers and architects create a lasting, beautiful project, as well as making installation much easier for the contractor.

Modified Carpet Trim

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

  • Commercial floor applications where carpet meets a hard surface are suitable for MCT Carpet Trim installation
  • Transitions from tile to carpet in retail stores are the most common installations
  • It is ideal for commercial applications exposed to heavy foot traffic
  • Install in new construction or renovations

MCT Carpet Trim 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.
