Re: Room dividers?

In a remodel we did some time ago... we extended a kitchen peninsula out on to a pergo floor, and nailed right thru it. According to the "Rep" at the lumber yard, the floating is for the exact reason described above, expansion and contraction. In the little amount of sqare footage that was actullay secured to the floor, that floating was not an issue. The design was for large areas not to expand and buckle within the walls. And the no nail- pergo design is for cosmetic reasons (people did not want to see nail heads. So, I am pretty sure, a wall or two or four, at an average of two feet long + or - , will not buckle your Pergo. This is only information shared as heard from the "Rep". But, after more than 5 yrs, the floor we dealt with is doin great!

Yes you are correct, what is pictured are the head an foot of the bunks. In this case I didn't use the brackets all the way around becuse the walls are attached to the bunks and only needed a couple of points at the top. But, I don't see any reason that they could be attached with brackets all the way around.
