Hi all,

Im going to be installing the above but im after a recessed door mat frame with a lip to cover the edge of the soild flooring, does such a thing exist?

Found this but it only goes up to 9mm:

Ive seen various L shaped edge trims but nothing that you can fix to the sub floor and have a lip over the wood. I want it to look good and not some botched job :cool:

I have a 1 x 1m section of coir mating to cut down to the size I decide on, at the moment not sure of how much to put down without it taking over..

Thanks in advance,

The flooring supplier that supplied the wood will sell a suitable square edge profile, failing that, most DIY chains will sell oak profiles to suit.
Thanks for the replies, appreciated!

Last question i have is, I'm glueing the floor down to a concrete sub floor ( Dpm applied, self levelled etc) do I need to glue the tongue and grooves of each board? And if so what glue can you recommend?

I will be using laybond L16 to glue the floor down, it was recommended by the place I purchased the floor from. Any views on this product?

Thanks in advance

Sound to me that the Laybond L16 is for parquet flooring (or narrow wood strips). what type of wood flooring are you installing - thickness, width, length
It's 130mm wide 18mm thick solid oak floor, lengths are random from I think 400mm to 1500mm, all tongue and groove..
I would use a End Bar which is supplied with the base plate, this can be screwed into the sub-floor and the end bar is then pushed into the base plate. This can be easily removed if needed. It will give a neat right angled finish for matting to drop in.
