Wallbarn is Bringing Adjustable Pedestals To Grand Designs Live 2017!

Adjustable Pedestals allow designers and builders to create hard landscaping areas on structural surfaces without compromising the waterproofing membrane beneath.

Designed for use where larger clearances are required, continual and irregular changes in height threshold occur and for more high-end finishes.

A Suspended System

Most roofs are built-to-falls for drainage purposes. Where the level between the door threshold and the drainage outlet is significant, where the roof falls in more than one direction, where large drops or channels are present, or where there are multiple and complicated changes in the fall and levels across the roof – then the ASP range of Adjustable Support Pedestals are the perfect tools.

This is a suspended system – the weight of the slab holds everything in place.

Wallbarn’s ASP adjustable support pads are designed with a telescopic stem which is wound up and down to achieve a completely flat upper paving surface. Changes to height can be made whilst the slab is in place. This saves a great deal of time and labour.

The rainwater runs between and under the slabs, so there is no standing water left on the surface. This improves health & safety as it makes the paved area less slippery.

Wallbarn has the largest range of pedestals for stone paving and timber deking in UK. We can provide solutions from the intimate private terrace up to commercial walkways and heavily trafficked areas.

Suspending paving or timber decking onto pedestals greatly improves the performance of the deck as it provides free drainage to the terrace, as the rainwater runs between and beneath the upper surface, reducing the risk of a slip hazard. The deck beneath is ventilated and, although the actual deck surface will be built to a fall, running towards the drainage outlet; by turning the telescopic threads on the Adjustable Pedestals, craftsmen can produce a completely flat upper surface which gives a greater sense of luxury to the area.

The slabs are placed onto the pedestals and the threads twisted so that they “bite” at the right height. Fine adjustments can be made to achieve spirit-level accuracy.

This system of laying slabs is much faster than having to set the stone slabs into mortar. The weight on the roof is reduced and a uniform paving guide is given via the straight paving lugs fitted to the headpieces, further helping installers.

Adjustable Pedestals can also be used to create timber decking areas on structural decks. The timber is lifted off the surface so will not be subject to standing water. This significantly increases the lifespan of decking projects.

The clips below highlight a recent decking installation which utilised Wallbarn’s range of TD adjustable pedestals. The project was completed at the Riverlight Development, Vauxhall, London.

Just A Few Days To Go Until Grand Designs Live

Just a few short days to go until Wallbarn visits Grand Designs Live at Excel to demonstrate how fast and easy it is to create a garden on an existing structural deck.

Covering a Wide Range of Areas

People who are constructing green roofs, creating their own roof gardens, sprucing up their old decking areas, retro-fitting onto structural decks or just building new paving or decking areas should visit stand B460.

We will be showing how to create soft and hard landscaping features using a range of our products.

A New Face of Decking Installation

iDecking EasyClick is the innovative new decking system using a very attractive and superior quality composite material. EasyClick is the all-in-one decking system. Gone are the days of constructing timber joist frames. Gone are the days of fitting hidden clips.

Gone are the days of unsightly screw holes in the upper surface. Gone are the days of constant maintenance and colour fading.

The ingenious fixing system means that fitting this decking involves just lining up the boards onto the rails and stamping them down.

The video below offers a great example of just how quickly and easily the installation can be completed.

Installation is up to five times faster than traditional fixing systems. it is clean, simple and environmentally friendly.

Introducing The User Friendly Way To Install Green Roofs

M-Tray® is the user-friendly way to install green roofs. Sedum and wildflower plants have been pre-installed into these easy to handle, specially designed trays to provide an instant garden for flat roofs, terraces and structural decks. M-Tray® brings life to boring flat roofs.

Instead of overlooking an ugly felt single storey extension, consider looking out over flowering plants and a natural setting. The structural and waterproofing integrity of the surface beneath is not compromised as nothing penetrates the membrane. This is a loose fitting system.

The advantages are four-fold:

  • the plants are fully established and mature, so once in place an instant greening effect is achieved. The plastic trays contain all the necessary sustenance, filtration and drainage components so the plants will survive long-term
  • the M-Tray® modules are clean and easy to handle. Green roof construction is often a very messy affair, but with everything contained within the tray, nothing spills out, meaning the least disruption possible. A module can be carried by hand easily and can even be walked through buildings for retro-fit projects. The membrane beneath the green roof is also protected from loose particles.
  • the green roof is future-proofed. If the structure beneath the vegetation ever needs to be inspected, one or more trays can be taken up without major issue; in contrast to roll-out roofs where many tonnes of loose substrate have to be dug out. If any of the plants die back or if the planting scheme is changed, the trays can be lifted and replaced quickly and easily.
  • M-Tray® brings nature and wildlife to urban environments. The plants are designed to attract insects and birds, help to absorb rainwater run-off and pollution and soften hard surfaces.

Moving From Grey To Green

There has been a definitive move in modern architecture from grey to green. With many architectural designs now being focused upon increasing energy efficiency and reducing the carbon footprint of the building ‘green roofs’ are becoming an increasingly popular element.

Popular in both commercial and residential properties (companies as large as Facebook now have a green roof on their Menlo Park headquarters), their installation is no longer dependant on the size of the building.

Although green roofs have been in existence for many years, their use in both modern and existing architecture has experienced a significant surge of interest and installation. Many countries have now introduced new legislation designed to add green roofing technology to open roof spaces and as such, the increased popularity is almost certain to continue.

Introducing the M-Tray® 

M-Tray® is the user-friendly way to install green roofs. Sedum and wildflower plants have been pre-installed into these easy to handle, specially designed trays to provide an instant garden for flat roofs, terraces and structural decks.

Instead of overlooking an ugly felt single storey extension, they provide the opportunity to create a natural setting filled with flowering plants.

The 4 Main Benefits of the M-Tray® Green Roofing System

Amongst some of the many benefits offered by the installation of a green roof, perhaps the most important is the isolating effect. A new installation can help reduce the amount of energy needed to heat a building in winter and cool it in summer.

Below we have identified 4 other important benefits offered by green roofing modules and the M-Tray® in particular.

Benefit No. 1

The plants are fully established and mature, so once in place an instant greening effect is achieved. The plastic trays contain all the necessary sustenance, filtration and drainage components so the plants will survive long-term

Benefit No. 2

The M-Tray® modules are clean and easy to handle. Green roof construction is often a very messy affair, but with everything contained within the tray, nothing spills out, meaning the least disruption possible. A module can be carried by hand easily and can even be walked through buildings for retro-fit projects. The membrane beneath the green roof is also protected from loose particles.

Benefit No. 3

The green roof is future-proofed. If the structure beneath the vegetation ever needs to be inspected, one or more trays can be taken up without major issue; in contrast to roll-out roofs where many tonnes of loose substrate have to be dug out. If any of the plants die back or if the planting scheme is changed, the trays can be lifted and replaced quickly and easily.

Benefit No. 4

M-Tray® brings nature and wildlife to urban environments. The plants are designed to attract insects and birds, help to absorb rainwater run-off and pollution and soften hard surfaces.
