Has anyone ever done this? I want to use a 36" round medallion with the floating 9/16" floor (radiant heat will be used under the fllor). Just wanted to know if I could make this work.

I hope someone chimes in on this one for you. As I mentioned to you in our phone discussion, I've never heard it applied before. Incidentally guys, the floating product is the clip system from Junckers. Frank lives in New York state and the home is climate controlled at around 70 degrees.

Where's Gary?

Right here. There are ways to install medallions with floaters. However, the medallion and floater must be the same thickness, unless you are planning on sanding everything. But my concern is with the clips Junkers uses to hold their floors together. Since to install a medallion, one routers out the place where the medallion goes, it seems to me running into a clip is a possibility. The best thing to do is call Junkers and ask their advice. If they say you can route out a section, then PM me and I'll tell you how to install the medallion in a floater.

After thinking about this...why the floater? Junckers can be nailed. Problem solved.

The reason for the Junkers is that I wanted the floating floor because of the radiant heat and expansion/contraction.

I don't see any real good way of doing this when floating. I would be concerned about the medallion staying put and not twist either from foot traffic. It would take some outside the box thinking on this but you would need some sort of biscuits or dado's to keep the medallion connected to the rest of the floor.

Call up the folks who make the medallion and run it by them. :)

Jerry, Award Flooring, which has a floater, came up with a method of installing medallions in a floater. It's kinda ingenius but pretty simple. But when going with click or clip locking systems, it becomes more difficult.

Is the medallion already made? If so see if their is an over lap (flexibe).
If not see if the manufacuter of the medallion can incorperate an over lap in the medallion so you can achieve the medallion being fastened while the float product is performing the way it supposed to.
Hope this helps. Cheers :)
