Quantum Flooring Solutions offers a wide range of hard wearing flooring transition profiles. These flooring transitions provide a neat and safe finish to the edges and joins of floorcoverings; protecting them from damage and helping to prevent them from becoming a trip hazard.
A choice of colours means each transition trim can be coordinated with internal décor schemes. Where applicable they can also be curved on-site to accommodate bends and corners laid into walkway floor designs. Quantum Flooring Solutions’ transition products also include a range of primary entrance matting, and tactile surfaces for the approaches to external stairs.
Quantum Flooring Soltuions offer a range of LVT transitions. These LVT transitions are available in three finishes gold polished, silver polished and anodised satin silver. These LVT transitions are suitable to fit a 30mm LVT feature strip to match the LVT flooring.

PVC trims are single profiles that are secured to the residual floor and adjoining floorcoverings are fixed in place up to either side of the profile. They protect the edges from fraying and becoming a trip hazard.
