Can I Put a Pool Table on a Laminate Floor?

Can I Put a Pool Table on a Laminate Floor?

Is it possible to put an 8' pool table in a room with a floating laminate floor (Pergo style)?

The home is a single story slab-on-grade construction with a floating interlocking floor that has been in place for about three years now.

I never notice any deflection anywhere in the floor but don't know how it would look / hold-up to a pool table.

    I have a room with laminate on the floor, and I want to place a 7-foot slate pool table in it (700lbs).

    Should I remove the laminate first or will it be fine?

    It is always reasonable to check with the manufacturer of your specific flooring.

    For pool tables on Laminate flooring, it depends on the AC rating of the specific laminate flooring in the room. Not all laminate flooring is the same. The higher the AC rating, the more durable the flooring will be. AC4, AC5, and AC6 rating flooring is tested to be "commercial-grade", which should withstand high foot traffic and constant pressure on the surface.

    There's also the consideration of expansion and contraction. A heavy weight can prevent the flooring from expanding, contracting, and moving (typically, well-installed laminate floors are "floating", with gaps under the moulding to allow for this).

    Most folks recommend placing thick and wide rubber coasters under each of the pool table legs.

    This info is meant to be informational in nature. Always check with the manufacturer of your flooring before proceeding.
