Ramp profiles are ideal for usage between any different flooring types.
Ramps are effective and popular trims or profiles used to transition between larger height variations of the different flooring types. In South Africa, various types of concrete slabs and screeds are often the initial floor finish laid in buildings.
Ramps can be used from screed/slab to tile, from screed/slab to laminate, from screed/slab to wood/engineered wood, from screed/slab to carpet, or from screed/slab to LVTs. They can also be used between any different flooring types.
Ramps from Kirk Marketing are available in a tile-in version for tiles, and as a base and ramp cover for laminates/wood and engineered wood, and as a glue on ramp with LVT’s. These versions leave a smooth transition. It is advisable to note that aluminium ramps are available in a range of anodised colours to match the colour of the floor.
The more heavy duty ramps available are the Stainless Steel and Brass retrofit screwfix ramps suitable for trolley traffic and heavy duty pedestrian traffic.
When floor types have been refurbished, tile in ramps may not have been used, which is why Kirk Marketing offers retrofit options for both the normal and the wide ramp. These ramps are fixed using tile adhesive and cement when fitted against tiles and epoxy glue and against laminates, wood and LVT’s.
Typical areas where ramps will be used are at the entrance thresholds to shopping centres, doorways, shops, offices, airports, etc. They are the ideal choice when seeking a smooth transition between varying surfaces and floorcoverings.
