What Is The Purpose Of Rubber Flooring Transition Strips?

By Lisa Hobbie Created: February, 2022

Rubber flooring transition strips are used in a home or business to create a safe gradation on which to move from one surface to another.

Rubber flooring transition strips come in different forms - from flexible to hard and actual strips to ramps. There are traditional colors like grey and black, as well as other colors. An extra wide strip is often used to fill in a gap between two different flooring surfaces, for example, carpet to vinyl laminate or wood. A ramp is often used to offer an ADA transition on a commercial grade floor or just to reduce tripping hazards when different types of floors have different heights.
