Using our Easyshim Carpet Shims we have simplified overcoming the problem that exists in almost every home, the difference in heights between flooring.
Using our Easyshim Carpet Shims, carpets can be ramped up to 30mm to give a smooth transition which is ideal for wheel chair access.
Easyshim Carpet Shims are for use when installing carpet next to hardwood, ceramic tile, stone and marble floors. They produce a smooth, level transition in doorways where without there use there would be a step and therefor a tripping point.
When having carpet fitted, ask your fitter for Easyshims. Any height differences between flooring are smoothed out in a subtle way.
Easyshim Technical Information
Each shim is 36"/91cm wide with an 8"/20cm ramp. It is available in heights of 6mm, 9mm and 12mm.
Choosing the right shim…Subtract 12mm from the height of the hard floor (standard carpet thickness including gripper)… for thin carpet use thicker shims and for thick carpet use thinner shims.
Fixing Easyshims… fix using ring shank nails or adhesive (when there is under floor heating or concrete). Leave a ¼"/6mm gap between the carpet shim and the hard surface… for thin carpet decrease the gap and for thick carpet increase the gap… Install the gripper on top of the Easyshim maintaining the ¼"/6mm gap. Install underlay and carpet, tucking the carpet into the ¼"/6mm gap. Rub the pins down with a hammer to prevent the pins from poking through. Use side shims where the Easyshim protrudes into a hall way or room.
