RE: wood floor system for a Pool table

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
If it was my floor, I would limit the span/depth ratio to no more than 15, use 1-1/8 plywood.  If there is a supporting beam, I'd design it at L/600 deflection minimum.

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 ?
