Gripper Rods

Gripper rods are installed to the perimeter of the room for the installation of secondary backing, also known as hessian backed, carpet with underlay.

The carpet is stretched over the gripper rods, which attaches to the backing of the carpet to keep it in place.

There are different types of gripper rods available, to suit all types of sub-floor.

One of the advantages of having carpet and underlay is that the carpet is tucked down behind the gripper rods, which leaves a neat and tidy finish around the edge of the room.
