WPC floor moldings are used with PVC flooring tile. WPC floor moldings is the perfect versatile solution for finishing your new floor and combining adjoining floors with a seamless appearance.
Threshold – The End Molding/Carpet Transition works great when finishing the floor in areas that meet vertical objects and is also ideal for transitioning between your laminate flooring and carpet. To finish the flooring in areas that meet vertical objects like exterior doors, sliding glass doors, tubs or shower basins, raised hearths or low sills, leave a 1″ space between the floor and the vertical object.
Installation: Install the Molding Track by gluing, screwing or nailing it 1/4″ from the flooring. Push the molding into the track working from left to right. When transitioning from laminate flooring to carpet, leave a 1″ space between the finished floor and the front edge of the carpet. Install the Molding Track by gluing or nailing it 1/4″ from the edge of the flooring. Push the molding into the track working from left to right. Finish the carpet by tucking it between the molding and the tack strip. Note: In heavy traffic areas, use screw-type fasteners or nails to permanently secure the molding into the Molding Track.
T-Molding – T-Molding is used when two level flooring surfaces meet, like in a doorway or a narrow archway. In a doorway, center the T-Molding under the space that the closed door occupies. Likewise, in an archway, the T-Molding should be centered.
Installation: To install the T-Molding, first install the molding track by gluing, screwing or nailing it 1/4″ from the edge of each adjoining flooring surface (equals about 1 1/8″). Push the T-Molding into the track, working from left to right. When laminate flooring meets a flooring surface that is lower, use a Reducer Strip. Leave 1/2″ space between the finished floor and the front edge of the reducer. Install the Molding Track by gluing, screwing or nailing it 1/4″ from the edge of the flooring. Push the reducer into the track working from left to right.
Quarter Round – To finish the perimeter of the room where the expansion space was left for the seasonal expansion and contraction of the flooring, remove spacers and install Wallbase and/or Quarter Round.
Installation: Both of these moldings are installed by nailing them directly into the wall. Never allow nails or screws in the Wall base or Quarter Round to enter into the laminate flooring or the expansion zone around the flooring perimeter, as it will prevent proper expansion and contraction of the flooring. You must pre-drill nail holes in both types of wall moldings before nailing, to eliminate any splitting. Be sure to nail the Quarter Round into the wall or Wall base and not into the flooring as it will prevent expansion and contraction of the flooring. Use Color Coordinated Putty to fill the countersunk nail heads. Be sure when nailing, that you do not go at a downward angle so as to avoid hitting the flooring and causing it to get into a bind.
Stairnose – The Stairnose is used to finish stair treads and risers, which have been fully adhered to the floor using a Shaw approved multipurpose flooring adhesive. Stop the flooring about 1 1/2″ from the step’s edge.
Installation: Install the Molding Track by gluing, screwing or nailing it 3/4″ from the edge of the stair tread. Apply construction grade adhesive to the Stairnose where the molding makes contact with the stair tread. Push the Stairnose into the track from left to right. You must use either screw-type fasteners or nails through the face of the Stairnose to permanently secure it to the track. Place screws/nails into the Stairnose 2″ from the end and 6″ to 8″ apart. (Note: riser piece should be in place under Stairnose before screws or nails are used).
