Hi,

Conservatory is built icon_smile.gif

Floating floor (DPM + 100mm concrete screed + 100mm Jabolite + DPM + 22mm chip) laid icon_biggrin.gif

55mm thick tatami mats laid out icon_biggrin.gif

35mm gap all the way round needs filling with wooden floor icon_confused.gif

The mats are 55mm deep, so I had considered laying a 35mm x 55mm (ash) wooden strip all the way round the room. Question is, how do I get it to stay down? The T&G chipboard is fully glued and rock solid. I am guessing, but provided I ONLY stick to the chipboard (and not the walls, indeed, I should leave a 10mm gap and put a bead over it) then I should be okay?

There could be a difference in expansion between the chipboard and solid ash (or whatever). Would Evo gripfix be strong enough?

Or any better ideas?

TIA

Yes but not too much in the direction of the grain in the ash. You need a wood scientist to tell you the figures!

"Would Evo gripfix be strong enough?" Probably, though it's a bit thick. PVA or woodworkers Yellow Glue would be easier.

Try a woodworkers forum?

Normally you only need a 10mm gap between wooden floor and wall. Since you're only installing a wooden frame of 35mm wide there is not really a need for an expansion gap.
