Carpet heights when installed
There are 2 main considerations regarding installed carpet heights:
- The height where carpet meets hard flooring
- The heights for door clearance above carpet.
The height where carpet meets hard flooring
In a conventional residential installation the carpet is installed on underlay and secured with carpet gripper (timber battens with spikes to hold the carpet).
Some Interior Designers prefer the carpet to be slightly higher than the adjacent hard flooring so that the carpet appears to be more abundant.
At the junction to hard flooring the carpet sits on the 6mm high carpet gripper.
The height of our carpets on carpet gripper is as follows:
|40 oz./yd2||Hip Hop, Groove and Funky||14mm - 15mm|
|50 oz./yd2||Escape Velour, Escape Twist and Whenever||15 - 16 mm|
|60 oz./yd2||Velour||17 - 18mm|
|80 oz./yd2||Imagine||20 - 21mm|
The height on underlay for calculation of door clearance
The height of our carpets on different underlays will vary.
The heights of our carpets on Airstep “Supa Blue” rubber underlay are as follows:
|40 oz./yd2||Hip Hop, Groove and Funky||17.5 - 18.50mm|
|50 oz./yd2||Escape Velour, Escape Twist and Whenever||18.5 - 19.50mm|
|60 oz./yd2||Velour||20.5 - 21.50mm|
|80 oz./yd2||Imagine||23.5 - 24.50mm|
