Guide to door bars / Threshold bars and profile trims
Which door bar/threshold bar should you use for your flooring?
Here’s a quick guide to door bars and their uses. Door bars can be used to join carpets to hard floors, carpets to carpets, or hard floors to hard floors, in fact, in any combination, to achieve a stylish and seamless transition between rooms.
It’s the small details that really add that finishing touch to a room, which is why our door bars are available in a range of colours, and styles.
Our door bars are available in aluminium, gold and wood effect finishes, in either 0.9m or 2.7m sizes (approximately 3ft and 9ft) and can easily be trimmed to fit any threshold size. You can choose between a standard, or a premium finish, with brushed nickel and chrome styles available to really give your thresholds that added wow factor. Or, if fitting Laminate flooring, there are wood-style door bars and profiles to colourmatch your flooring.
Plus, there are carpet adhesive and vinyl adhesive options available, for when normal fixings can’t be used.
