Re: wood floor system for a Pool table

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
        I have experienced pool tables in upper floors a few times and never noticed a problem from springy floors.  For a new house under construction I might suggest double joists under the legs or, if you really want a Cadillac job (and I don't really think this is necessary), use double MicroLam joists under the legs.  Keeping in mind that I'm an average to slightly better than average player you might consider checking with a club that hosts championship pool events.

Subject: wood floor system for a Pool table

I am working on engineering for a custom home where the billard table (pool table in bar speak) is on the second floor.
What floor deflection should be allowed to make sure the game can't be influenced by a bouncing floor???
any experience or reference to look at ?
