Pedestal Paver System
Tile Tech Pedestal System is designed for wood deck tiles, porcelain pavers & concrete pavers to lay level over built-up roof decks. The substrate can be either concrete or wood structure, with a roof membrane over the top. The pedestal system consists of 7 standard pieces and user-supplied SDR-35 or Schedule 3034- 4.215” OD diameter PVC pipe.
Concrete & Porcelain roof pavers have been popular recently for freeing otherwise wasted space. Now you can have functional and attractive roof pavers that have level surfaces for a secure foothold. These places can now be used for various uses, such as for a green roof. These are energy-efficient roofs that have become recently popular due to their feature of providing a cooler environment in heat-producing areas such as rooftops and plazas. With these, one of the most popular paving solutions is the roof pedestal system. The system elevates, levels the walking surface, and also uniformly spaces the pavers for healthy airflow and proper drainage for water.
Our Deck Pedestal Supports are designed for porcelain pavers, Wood Deck Tiles or concrete ballasted pavers to level over built-up rooftop decks. It could have either a concrete or wooden substrate structure with a roof membrane over the top. The pedestal system has 7 pieces for the simpler standard type along with a 4.215 inch OD diameter PVC pipe to be supplied by the user. The PVC pipe allows the system to have varying heights that may reach up to 36+ inches high. The spacer on the upper cap is provided for a proper alignment of the pavers and for an open joint for water drainage.
Roofing pedestal systems are manufactured using modern techniques and utilize recycled materials that are fire-resistant such as ABS plastics but are also environmentally friendly and are very safe. Various tests have been conducted on these systems to measure their load capacity along with their durability and life spans. The pedestals can be adjusted up to 36 inches but tests have shown that the system can withstand loads of up to 11,000 pounds PSI on heights up to 24 inches.
Low Height Pedestals
New improvements on the pedestal system are continuously developed and some of these are the new stack-able caps that provide for minute height adjustments compensating for different slopes. New designs for the caps also feature built-in self-leveling and spacer tabs for joint alignment and proper paver spacing. Many of these systems are simple enough to be user-installed when preferred.
Tile Tech Pavers provide durability, protection, and performance for the roof system from harsh weather conditions while providing drainage and a level walking surface.
Roof Pedestal System elevates, levels, and uniformly spaces the paver for proper water drainage & airflow. The Pedestals are adjustable from 1/2″ to 36+″ high with the use of 4.215″ OD PVC pipe.
In addition to the Roof Pedestal System, a variety of paving options are available, such as Porcelain Pavers, Wood Deck Tiles, Concrete Pavers, Artificial Turf, Paver Safety Tray & our Modular Green Roof Plant-Trays, to meet all design and specification requirements.
Pedestal System has been compression tested to withstand loads of up to 11,000 lbs PSI from heights of 2″ up to 36+″ when used with standard SDR35, 4.215″ OD PVC pipe.
Roofing Pedestal Systems are manufactured from recycled fire-resistant ABS plastic and are very safe and environmentally friendly.
Adjustable Pedestal Types
The PVC pipe allows the pedestal system to vary in heights up to 36+ inches. The standard 1/8” spacer on the top cap allows for an open joint for water drainage and proper alignment of the pavers. In an application where low heights from ½” to 2’ high is needed, the Stack-Cap can be used and also include slope compensation for a level paver surface. Additional top shims are also available for fine height adjustments and corner leveling.
The “press fit” connection of the top and bottom cap to the PVC pipe requires no gluing or other attachments. Both the wedge top shims and round bottom shims can be used for “fine-tuning” proper height if required. All top shims and bottom shims lock into place, and all six pieces (if used) interlock, allowing no paver movement and a level surface. The round bottom shims have a unique “V” groove, which allows them to be scored & broken in half with a utility knife and stacked on the bottom for those areas that are sloped more than 2%. They lock to each other and to the bottom cap to impede the movement of the pedestal. The subsequent weight of the paver will keep the system in place. The caps can be easily removed during installation if desired.
Paver & Tile Options
Tile Tech Pedestal System is designed for concrete pavers, porcelain pavers, or Wood Deck tiles to lay level over built-up roof decks. Our PATENTED Hybrid pedestal support system is an innovative product, allowing for self-leveling, single model for all height applications, screw adjustable, PVC pipe adjustable, and are stackable. The substrate can be either concrete or wood structure, with a roof membrane or waterproofing over the top.
