Are these any good for chipboard flooring?
Does the 'plug' fit flat so that you wont see it under carpets?

I can recommend them for chipboard definitely. They’re a marvellous bit of kit.

Is it a good finish with the plug in?
The carpets not going to sag into the hole?

The hole and rebate is made with a special hole cutter that matches the plugs. There’s a smidge of a gap around the perimeter of the plug... but even linoleum would cover and not show through.

Normally fit the extra / plastic discs

Wouldn’t recommend for traffic areas unless you glue it down

It’s for a loft conversion
I need to get pipes under the floor before walls are built.
It will have to be push fit
I can then make a hole and reach in to connect the rad pipes
