    yes thats what i meant, it could be left loose but is going to get knocked and kicked, that is why i was thinking of the metal dowels to the floor through an oversize hole in the laminate to allow for movement

    What * dip? Are you worried that your underlay is inappropriate, then don't use it. All your questions seem to be "I'm trying to bodge this, what's the best way?" :(

    no im trying to find the best way to do a job ive never done before i.e fitting an end panel onto of laminate flooring.

    the flooring will have 10mm underlayment so in my mind i can see that the end panel will create a dip, if you have experience of doing this then please advise if not * off being a smart*

    So why don't you think they will take the expected load and why are you not bringing up your worries with the specifier?

    you wont have a dip in the laminate if you cut the end panel to the right size! and if you support the worktop to the wall where the W/M will be. ;)

    because they have a small amount of give in them and i would imagine concentrating the weight of the worktop ont an 18mm wide end panel will cause it to dip the floor slightly

    as i said i was thinking of a way to finish the floor to the end panel or send a metal dowel through the laminate to take the load off the floor but you suggested sticking it on top ;)

    sounds good, do you not think it might pull down a bit at the front if someone sat on the worktop?
