Cover strip is a general term that might be used for a number of different vertical or horizontal architectural elements. It is normally used to cover the gap between two materials, particularly where the edges are un even or the materials may move over time.
A timber cover strip can describe any piece of timber, bead or trip that is used to cover another (often a gap). An architrave is a form of cover strip that covers the gap between an often wooden door frame and the surrounding plaster wall, it covers the edge of the plaster finish and hides any future shrinkage or movement. Other forms of decorative interior features that may also be considered as cover strips are skirting boards and cornices, covering the joint between the floor and wall or wall to ceiling.
A carpet cover strip can be metal, plastic or timber and is usually a strip of material with curved edges that is fixed to the flow between two material finishes, in particular carpet, where the underside might have small teeth to grip to the carpet finish, it may also be referred to as a flooring threshold bar / strip or a transition bar.
