Pedestals for paving and timber decking. Adjustable pedestals and paving support pads
Wallbarn supplies the largest range of pedestals in UK, they have fixed height pads for paving and decking. They can supply fully adjustable pedestals from 10mm up to 1020mm. These specially designed units can suspend paving or joists for timber decking off the waterproofed deck. This allows water to drain between and beneath the slabs preventing localised flooding on the terrace.
Wallbarn supplies a variety of different designed pedestals for different sized joists, for falling decks and tapered insulation, for very thin and delicate tiles, at ultra-low height tolerances and for heavily trafficked areas.
Minipads are smaller height pedestals suitable for suspended paving systems. They were developed after feedback from customers who required a solution to areas where restricted and very low height thresholds existed but a minor alteration of height was still required to achieve completely flat and seamless finishes.
Wallbarn can offer fully adjustable solutions at extremely low height tolerances. Even as low as 10mm, installers can achieve precise, split millimetre accuracy in the height of the pedestal to accommodate tiny changes in the level.
The 10-20mm Ultra Minipad has been designed for use when working with very tight spaces. The thread allows 5mm of change to the level with a 5mm extension plate which is fitted to the bottom of the pedestal.
The extension plate increases the pedestal height by 5mm so users can have a 10-15mm or a 15-20mm fully adjustable pedestal for use in these tight spaces.Special handle grips have been incorporated into the design to help installers fit their fingers into this tight gap and can turn the pedestal to adjust the height.
Two alternatively designed pedestals, the Minipad 22-30mm and Minipad 28-37mm, are available for slightly higher clearances. The lug fittings on the headpieces act as a straight paving guide, so all slabs will follow a uniform line. The headpieces and baseplates are both 150mm in diameter and will hold the edge of four separate slabs and give adequate support to the paving system.
Using these Minipads, rather than fixed height paving pads, avoids the need to have to spend a large amount of time and effort placing shims under fixed height supports trying to gain the optimum level.
