basement subfloor clarification...

Im putting laminate in basement with platon . NO WOOD SUBFLOOR

Can i leave the platon floating or should i secure it in high traffic areas for nice and bounce?

Also, platons website says to use landscape paper under the platon to avoid noise. Does the platon make the clicking sound without it?

thanks

My guess is that as a dimple floor product similar to DeltaFL it must stay floating below the laminate. The landscape frabric is just a preventer of possible squeak noises that might occur as the product moves on the concrete. While the product is designed to allow a direct application of laminate flooring if it were my floor I would still install a wood subfloor and screw it down with the 24" grid pattern recommended.
