Heavy-duty Self-Levelling Pedestal covering heights from 25mm to 1,025mm

Jump to:
+44 (0)20 8916 2222 Website

Application

  • Raised paving, particularly heavy-duty applications.
  • Particularly suited to high traffic areas.
  • Ideal for where a large void underneath the tile needs to be created. Over a metre can be achieved.
  • Not suitable for Class A Fire rated projects (see Wallbarn's other fire rated pedestals).

Description

Heavy-duty self-levelling adjustable height pedestals for paving.


Features and benefits:

  • Designed for heavy loads.
  • Height range of 25–1025 mm.
  • The self-levelling headpiece is used to accommodate differences in the deck surface below the pedestal.
  • Suspended system.
  • Fully adjustable; top key system for in-situ adjustments.
  • Compatible with the cross-rail system for additional support (pedestal/ rail specified as a separate product).
  • Also available as a decking pedestal, specified separately.
  • The Stainless Steel "Key" allows for adjustment in height of the pedestal without having to lift the paving slab leading to health & safety improvement.
  • The "grey nut" can be inserted to lock off the self-levelling head to create a fixed headpiece.
  • Melt flow rate (to ASTM D1238): 14–16 g/10 minutes.
  • Heat deflection test with load of 1820 kPa (to ASTM D648): >90°C.
  • Maximum weight tolerance at minus 40°C (to CATAS 179112 / 1): 27.830 N.


Paving-specific:

  • Self-levelling headpiece incorporates four positioning lugs (fins) laid out in a crucifix formation set towards the edges.
  • The headpiece also comprises four separate parts created to allow up to a 5% or 2.86° slope correction in all directions.
  • The mechanism at the bottom of the headpiece allows smooth movement and positioning of the paving slab.
  • The lugs (fins) separate paving slabs and tiles on the headpiece to allow sufficient drainage between slabs (4mm).
  • This creates a uniform paving line so the slabs are laid completely straight.
  • A rubber anti-shock pad slots is included on the headpiece which has a series of ridges to give better grip to the slab and help insulate against vibration and noise travelling through the pedestal to the deck beneath.
