Mega Balance Heavy-duty Pedestals for Paving

Application

Raised paving, particularly heavy-duty applications.

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 "yellow 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.



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.
  • This creates a uniform paving line so the slabs are laid completely straight.
  • A rubber anti-shock pad slots onto the headpiece over 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.
