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.

Tools for the job;
- Hand Saw
- Rubber Mallet
- High Grab Adhesive (and/or Screws)
The Frontier Single Part 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 and base to the desired length (if neccessary). Be sure to double check measurements before cutting! The top 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.
