Uses & Application
With a number of different profile shapes and sizes, the Frontier Sports range provides
a solution for all areas and disciplines
What can profiles do for your floor?
Enhance the whole look and feel of your floor. Profiles are often the last thought on the mind of the person who sells or lays the floor but without due care and consideration for what is needed, the floor can look poorly finished. Even without the importance of the aesthetic aspect, profiles play an important roll in the fitting and longevity of the floor, in-particular, solid and engineered wood floors. Profiles provide cover for necessary expansion gaps both around the perimeter of rooms and across door thresholds. Without the necessary expansion, hardwood flooring will bow, dish or push bricks out of walls.
With the correctly specified profiles, perimeter expansion and door threshold covers vanish to become part of the floor.
Floor PreperationFor a flawless finish, preparation is the key. Luckily with Parallel profiles, preparation is kept to the bare minimum. Simply ensure that the substrate floor is clean and relatively level.
Not quite what you need?Haven’t found quite what you are looking for? No problem, just give us a call. Parallel are able to machine bespoke profiles to whatever specification you require.
FixingParallel’s unique fixing system makes installation a breeze. Simply fix the base section to the substrate floor with either an adhesive or screws and then tap the top profile into place with a rubber mallet. The profile will self level in the height adjustable base system giving the perfect finish.
Complementary ExtrasIn addition to profiles to cover gaps between different flooring types or through doorways, Parallel also manufactures skirting, architrave, scotia, quadrant, stairnosing, pipe covers/collars and more from the same high quality hardwoods. This enables continuity throughout the room or building.
Leading the way with an uncompromising attitude to product design and customer service, what is run of the mill to us is impossible to others.
Adjustable Foot Section
One of the unique features to be implemented within the PVC sports skirting profile is the ability to alter the length of the foot section of the profile. For the majority of large sports halls or playing surfaces the full 65mm width foot is necessary to accommodate the large perimeter expansion required to allow the floor to move as needed.
However, there are occasions where smaller rooms do not require a perimeter gap as wide. Therefore the PVC skirting profile can be reduced in width so as the foot does not encroach too far into the room. The width can easily be altered from 65mm to 40mm or 25mm using a sharp edged tool and a straight guide.
Send us your board and we will provide profiles to match it! Using our comprehensive colour database, there are very few finishes we are unable complement.
ral powder coating
On those special occasions where even our standard colours aren’t what are required, we can offer powder coating of our Aluminium profiles. Achieved by electrically charging the materials to encourage the colour to ‘stick’, powder coating offers a full spectrum of standardised colours to pick from.
Minimal preparation, beautiful finish. Fix & forget, walk away without worry of having to return to replace or repair Parallel products.
Tools for the job;
- High-Grab Adhesive
The Frontier Sports Floor range requires expert fitting in the main. Mitred joints and precision cutting tools are required to provide the desired finish to withstand the rigours of a sports hall environment.
1, Mitre the ends of the profile for straight joins and corners to increase structural strength. Position as required to cover the perimeter expansion of the room.
2, Screw and/or glue the profile to the wall (fixing method differs slightly depending upon the profile selected).
