Style and Function
In addition to being aesthetically pleasing, metal edge trim made of aluminum provides practical functions as well. Aluminum edge trim protects the edges of the material it is attached to. Edge trim covers the edges and corners to give a neat, high-end finish, increasing the durability and longevity of your countertop, table, bar, or shelving.
Anodized aluminum edge trim also protects flooring in high-traffic areas that are at a high risk of damage such as thresholds or any other place where there is a transition from tile to carpet, carpet to wood, or concrete resin to tile. It can also be used to excellent effect at expansion joints or simply as a decorative edging for stairs and podiums.
Aluminum edge trim molding also works well as a skirting board to finish flooring stripes and gives an elegant joint between the floor and the wall. Eagle Moulding’s edge trim is stocked both with and without countersunk holes so the profiles can be applied using an adhesive or screwed to the floor or wall.
