How To Prevent Wind Uplift With Tile Tech’s Roof Paving System

When it comes to hardscaped outdoor spaces — especially rooftops — one of the biggest concerns is the threat of wind uplift. Wind uplift occurs when strong winds create a lift force on pavers, causing them to become loose or unstable. This not only poses a safety hazard but can also lead to costly repairs each year.

Luckily, Tile Tech has developed an innovative paver system that addresses wind uplift and ensures the safety and stability of your rooftop deck. If you’re concerned about the dangers of high wind for your roof deck, here are the three essential Tile Tech products that will help prevent wind uplift.

1. Wind and Safety Paver Tray

If you’re renovating a terrace, balcony, or roof deck, having the right paving system is crucial for both functionality and safety. That’s why Tile Tech’s market-leading wind and safety paver trays are essential for any outdoor space subject to high wind speeds. 

Our innovative wind and safety paver trays are an essential component of any outdoor paver installation, providing a simple but effective solution to wind uplift and ensuring the safety of your space. With patented technology, the trays create a sturdy surface that effectively locks down the entire area, eliminating any potential horizontal or vertical movement. This added stability not only keeps your property looking and functioning at its best, but it also significantly reduces the risk of accidents and injuries. 

When paired with our roof deck pavers and roof pedestals, this engineered system is unparalleled in its ability to combat wind uplift and increase safety measures. This results in a superior paver roof deck that will keep your home or business safe from hazardous wind conditions year-round.

2. Hybrid Adjustable Pedestals

Another crucial element in preventing wind uplift is to ensure that your pavers are securely in place. This is where high-quality adjustable pedestals come in. Tile Tech’s adjustable pedestals support our outdoor deck pavers, keeping them in place even during strong winds.

Our roof pedestals have a weight-bearing capacity of up to 2,000 pounds, and they’re extremely durable and weather-resistant thanks to their high-density polypropylene and polyethylene makeup. They also have a self-leveling head, which compensates for any slight variations in the level of the pavers and helps counteract any small movement from high winds. 

Studies have also shown that increasing the ratio of the spacing between pavers to the height of the deck off the roof surface increases the wind speed at which the pavers will be blown off. With this in mind, property owners can adjust the height of their pavers during high wind season to mitigate the risk of paver damage and blow-off.

3. Outdoor Porcelain Pavers

Porcelain deck pavers are one of the most durable and versatile materials on the market for outdoor decking. The all-weather surface is produced under extreme hydraulic pressure, duplicating the forces of nature to create an extremely high-strength, load-bearing paver that can stand up to a wide range of harsh weather conditions, including wind.

Porcelain roof paving tiles are slip-resistant, water-resistant, fire-resistant, and UV color wear-resistant, enhancing the safety of your residential or commercial property year-round. They can also withstand repeated freezing and thawing without cracking or breaking, making them ideal for climates with cold, icy winds.

If you want an outdoor paving solution that can withstand harsh weather, including high winds, trust Tile Tech’s industry-leading deck tiles and paver systems. Our paver trays, adjustable pedestals, and deck pavers can be customized and easily installed to create your property’s perfect outdoor paving solution.
