Wallbarn rubber paving support pads offer the perfect solution for deck paving.

 

Wallbarn Rubber Paving Support Pads offer a perfect solution for deck paving. They ensure a secure, fast, clean and uniform way to lay paving slabs or decking on flat roofs, balconies and walkways.

Wallbarn Rubber Paving Support Pads are specially designed circular pads manufactured from high quality synthetic rubber.

They are extremely tough and have a high level of elasticity and flexibility.

On the upper surface they have four lugs to provide regular spacing between paving slabs. The under surface incorporates grooves to allow the drainage of water below the paving into the appropriate drainage outlet. This avoids puddling on the paved surface.

Wallbarn Rubber Paving Support Pads are designed to ensure that the paving slabs are clearly separated from each other with regular spacing between them, and are held securely in place.

There is no mechanical fixing required or any need to lay slabs in mortar – the surface is secured by the weight of the slab or covering. This cuts down weight on the roof but also the hassle and mess of laying slabs into sand and cement. This leads to easier, cheaper and faster installation.

Another advantage of Wallbarn Rubber Paving Support Pads is the ability for the contractor to take up, reposition, or change completely the paving slabs on top.

This proves to be most useful where site inspection or leak detection needs to be carried out.

Since Wallbarn Rubber Paving Support Pads are made from synthetic rubber as opposed to plastic, they offer the distinct advantages of being flexible and are easy to cut. They are extremely tough and durable, with a weight tolerance of 8 tonnes. They  also offer sound and vibration insulation, and are extremely resistant to extremes of heat and cold. They will not become brittle in cold weather. The rubber compound ensures that the pads give a certain amount of grip, and will not slip on the surface beneath when being installed.

Their tough flexible makeup make them useful for a variety of different materials, not just pre-cast concrete paving.

They have been used successfully to support timber decking placed on top of insulation boards without cutting into the surface and can even be laid directly on top of certain waterproof membranes without risk of damage.

They are included as part of the specification in a number of high profile waterproofing systems.

Where the deck is not entirely level, Wallbarn Levelling Shims allow for fine adjustment. Placed on the upper side of the support pads, these plastic shims are supplied 1mm, 2mm and 3mm thick. They can be snapped into quarters of halves, where only one side of the support pad needs height alteration.

Further adjustments can be made using shims, which can both fit onto either the rubber or plastic support pads. Plastic shims for placing on the upper side of the support pads come in thicknesses of 1mm, 2mm and 3mm.

Wallbarn also offers a wedge shaped adjustable shim / slope corrector for laying under the support pad.

Adjustable in height from 3mm to 8mm thick, these rubber shims can be used singly – to take out any slope and achieve a flat upper surface – or stacked on top of one another (as shown below) and slid towards or apart from each other using the height markers. This can increase the height by up to 11mm.

Advantages of Wallbarn Rubber Paving Support Pads:

  • Correct positioning of paving slabs and holding them securely in place.
  • Uniform spacing between paving
  • Separation of paving slabs from the base structure.
  • Water drainage below the paving level.
  • Sound insulation.
  • Resistance to extreme hot and cold weather conditions
  • Tough flexible material – do not slip on the surface
  • Labour saving – cost saving
  • Clean and tidy, avoids the need for sand and cement
  • Easy maintenance allowing any slab to be removed for inspection and repair
