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.

Carpet to Vinyl Trim

CTV metal carpet trim was designed to transition from carpet to vinyl, or other various soft surface flooring for primarily commercial construction applications. The 7/16″ reveal covers the edges of both carpet and LVT, reducing from 1/4″ to 1/8 to accommodate the typical height standard of soft surface flooring. The durable anodized aluminum makes the CTV appropriate for commercial applications.

From left to right: Anodized Aluminum (Clear), Champagne (CHA), Light Bronze (BZ), Medium Bronze (MB), Dark Bronze (DB) and Black (BLK). Not all finish options are stock items, some are custom colors. Please call for more information. What is Anodizing?

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.
