Question Platon vs. Delta FL vs. Wood subfloor

I've been following other posts, and wondering if there is anyone else out there who has used either of these products? Also, you can only use these without a wood subfloor when laminate is used. If you are doing both laminate in one area and carpet in another, won't you have a problem with the transition being too high? (ie a wood subfloor under the carpet = 1/2" at least higher than the laminate) or is this an acceptable difference?

Another subfloor question - is there a type of 1/2" wood that is better?

Thanks for any help.

Check with your local building inspector regarding subfloor requirements in your area. Transitions from carpet to laminate or other floor covering require the use of transition pieces. These can be acquired from the laminate dealer. Most major laminate manufacturers have these pieces available.

The Delta FL site says that 2' x 2' tongue and groove plywood or OSB panels held down with concrete screws are required before carpet. I would think you could use larger sheets instead, as long as you are careful. I'm sure you could use the same materials under the laminate to level it.

Don't know if that helps.
