Machined from the highest grade timber, Frontier Carpetline is the perfect companion for your carpet, seagrass or any other natural flooring type.
Frontier Carpetline is designed specifically for the carpet and naturals market. Many solid hardwood profiles are unsuitable for use between ‘soft’ flooring types. When unsupported under the rebated edge, normal wood profiles can stress and crack under footfall. Design consideration has led to the development of the Carpetline range. Reinforced, rebated edges provide increased structural strength over other wood profiles. This, in conjunction with stress relieving grooves, produce a very strong and stable profile.
Available in Oak, Mahogany and a myriad of stains, you can be sure a complementary finish can be found, whether matching woodwork or carpet tones.
Uses & Application
Perfect for seamlessly joining two natural flooring types or providing a transition between different floors. Reinforced edges provide lasting longevity.
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.

Reinforced rebated edges
Many profiles claim to be multi purpose, fit for all jobs and then fail at most. Parallel profiles are specific for the job they are intended to do. This means we have a large number of profiles, which can seem daunting at first, but the reality is much simpler. The Frontier Carpetline is the prime example of a profile which is ‘fit for purpose.’ When using carpet or natural flooring types, timber profiles can be weakened by traffic moving over unsupported, rebated lips/edges. This generally leads to splits and breaks along the edges and then failure. Frontier Carpetline has been designed specifically with this issue in mind. Reinforced edges (where the flooring sits underneath) work to counter the downward force created from footfall and greatly reduce the chance of any breakages or failures. This allows the beauty of a timber profile to be used to enhance the look and feel of natural flooring types.
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.
Starting with an unfinished base timber, various stains, waxes, oils and enhancers are hand applied to ensure an even and consistent colour. Once dry, the top coat is applied to give the desired finish, whether that be matt oil or gloss lacquer or anything else in between.
Minimal preparation, beautiful finish. Fix & forget, walk away without worry of having to return to replace or repair Parallel products.
Tools for the job;
- Rubber Mallet
- High-Grab Adhesive
The Frontier Carpetline profiles are quick and simple to fit, whether you are a seasoned carpenter or a DIY beginner. Follow the steps below, ensuring that you start with a clean and clear environment and the correct profile has been selected;
1, Trim down the profile to the desired length (if neccessary). Be sure to double check measurements before cutting! The profile may also need notching out in the corners to get a neat fit with the door frame.
2, Apply a high grab gap fill adhesive to the area between the floors
3, Working swiftly so as the glue doesnt skin over, gently press the pre-cut profile down on to the adhesive, ensuring the profile settles in the desired place. Maintain downwards pressure for a few minutes and then leave to ‘set’ for 24hrs. The profile can also be screwed or pinned down for extra security.
