    Can anyone help me identify the right kind of transition strip for a parquet to vinyl floor please?

    I've had a parquet floor put down which connects through a doorway to a vinyl floor, which is about 12mm lower. Because the parquet floor is tessellated together, it needs a firm surface on its edge to prevent the wood from moving apart.

    Therefore a transition ramp isn't sufficient as that would just sit on top of the flooring. I think a t-bar is what I'm looking for (maybe?) but I can't find one in brass that can cope with such a difference between floor heights.

    You can also get them made of wood with a ramp on one side.
    Shove cork in any gap as support

    Cheers all for the tips. I ended up plugging the gaps with strips of wood wedged to hold the parquet in place, and then covering with metal transition ramps.

    Probably not the 'pro' approach but it seems to have worked.
