Carpet Shims and Universal Side Shims are designed to eliminate transition problems when installing carpet next to hard surfaces such as ceramic tile or hardwood. There is no need for double tack strip, building ramps out of VCT, shake shingles, or floating. Carpet Shims are available in 1/2 inch, 3/8 inch, and 1/4-by-8-by-32-inch sizes. They are also available in 1/2 inch and 3/8-by-12-by-48 inches for larger transition needs.
Universal Side Shims are available in 1/2 inch and 3/8 inch sizes for both the 8-by-32- and the 12-by-48-inch Carpet Shims.
Universal Side Shims can also be used to make 90-degree outside corners. Both are conveniently packaged with the installer in mind.
