Sold per shim or by the box (12 each).

The 8" ramp x 32" wide Carpet Shims are available in thicknesses of 1/4", 3/8", and 1/2". The 8” shims offer a gentle, smooth transition from hard surface to carpet. Typically, the 8" x 32" Carpet Shims are installed in doorways of less than 48" wide and particularly in hallway doorways. The shorter transition (ramp) keeps the transition closer to the wall and out of the hallway. They eliminate waste and fit nicely in most residential doorways.

Installing Carpet Shims:
Determine the width of the opening. On the rough side of the Carpet Shim, using a carpet knife, score the shim three or four times at the needed length and snap it. Place the shim in the opening with the smooth side up and the high side toward the hard surface, leaving a *1/4" gap between the shim and the hard surface. Centered and evenly spaced, nail at least 5 ring shank nails per 32” of Carpet Shim. Place a Universal Side Shim at each side of the Carpet Shim and nail all four corners securely to the floor. Install the tack strip on top of the Carpet Shim maintaining the *1/4" gap. Install your pad and carpet, tucking the carpet into the 1/4" gap. It is that simple!

*Regarding the 1/4" gap, when extremely thick or thin carpet is being installed, adjust the gap accordingly. Also refer to hard surface manufacturer's recommendations.

Carpet Shims’ products may be attached to the floor using a good adhesive.
