Teak Natural Reducer by Shaw by Shaw Industries; Trim, end caps, and molding (moulding) are essential flooring elements that help cover the expansion gaps left at the edges of your room and to transition between rooms. They can even create a smooth transition from one flooring type to another. SVMPR_00743

Teak Natural Reducer by Shaw measures 1.75 X 94.00 and is also available as Overlap Reducers, Stair Caps, Baby Thresholds and T-Molds. You can download printable measurement specs here. These moldings (moulding), end caps, and trim cover unprotected and unfinished edges of your floor and help with transitions involving doors, stairs, fireplaces, and even room to room.

Use T-molding and overlap reducers when transitioning between two distinct floors. Specifically, use T-molding when the floors are the same height and overlap reducers when the rooms vary slightly with height. Stair caps and flush stair noses both absorb the impact put on stairs. Quarter-round molding can be used along a perimeter of a room to seamlessly finish your floor's look. Baby thresholds (end caps) are often used against sliding doors, fireplaces and in other areas where hardwoods meet carpet.

There is a flat rate per carton for shipping trim; up to 5 "sticks" can be placed in one box for shipping. This product requires 5-7 business days from the time of order to be delivered.
