When to Use: Clamshell Reducers are used with Nail-Down or Glue-Down Tongue and Groove bamboo wood floors to provide a transition from the bamboo wood floor to an adjoining floor of a different height.
Installation Note: To attach the Clamshell Reducer to the subfloor, apply one or two 1/4 inch beads of construction adhesive to the subfloor and seat the Clamshell Reducer in place, ensuring it is tight up against the bamboo wood floor. If nailing the Clamshell Reducer to the wood subfloor, pre-drill the Clamshell Reducer to prevent splitting and then nail it to the subfloor.
