2023 set to be a big year for Floor Trim Systems

2023 will be a big year for Floor Trim Systems, says the company. Following the success of 2022 when it Systems won a Flooring Innovation Award for TrimAce, demand for its unique expansion gap trim has reportedly rocketed.

Not only has it since expanded the list of materials TrimAce is available in, it has also added a range of finishes so the expansion joint reportedly suits most new and existing commercial floors and walls.

David Sharp, director of Floor Trim Systems & IDL UK, says the company is looking forward to 2023. ‘It’s set to be the busiest year to date for Floor Trim Systems; we have big plans to launch our trims in new markets, we’re working on various tenders and NBS specifications, all while developing new trim designs.’

Manufactured in the UK this floor trim is typically made out of two pieces of aluminium and filled with absorbing foam so it can move with the floor unlike silicone, cork or cover strips.

Says the company: ‘This movement joint doesn’t require bonding, it’s simply pushed into a rebate by the floor fitter, not only saving time but also the number of subcontractors onsite. It’s suitable for wherever an expansion gap is required and can be used between many interfaces such as timber/stone, timber/carpet or against solid elements including walls, mullions and partition glazing. In addition it can be installed as an edge or joint finishing trim in noncritical connections and if needed it can be taken out, reused, replaced or resprayed without having to remove the flooring, making it a more environmentally friendly option.’

Dan Galleni, senior design manager for Overbury, used TrimAce in the fit out of the Brunel building in London. ‘We needed a solution which covered the expansion gap between the wood floor and partition glazing. It needed to be neater than silicone, sit flush with the flooring while still being practical and look sleek. TrimAce was manufactured and installed quickly, giving a high standard finish, resulting in another happy customer.’

The company concludes: ‘Whether you’re looking for a movement joint trim for a new project, a floor trim to be retrofitted around the perimeter of a room or a product which creates a modern finish between different interfaces we have a solution.’
