How To Create A Suspended Decking System

June 21st, 2019

Tropical Hardwood tiles for suspended decking solutions on flat roofs, terraces and walkways. 

Natural, Attractive Finish of Timber Decking

By using suspended Wallbarn Timber Paving Tiles, installers combine the natural, attractive finish of timber decking with the speed and ease of laying paving slabs.

Traditionally laying timber decking directly onto these deck surfaces led to additional costs of employing specialist carpenters. Laying timber joists directly onto the waterproofing membrane also risked damage over time. Wallbarn Timber Paving Tiles offer the ideal solution. The weight of the tile will hold the system in place.

Suspended System

This suspended system avoids having to fix anything onto the deck and lifts all the timber away from any standing water, avoiding the dangers of a slippery surface.

As everything is free-standing, the tiles can be taken up and replaced without disrupting the whole area, should the deck need to be inspected. Unsightly items such as drainage outlets, cables and pipes can be hidden beneath the tiles and accessed easily.

Why suspend your tiles on pedestals?

Four positioning lugs on each pedestal give tiling line for uniform placement

Tiles kept out of standing water avoiding slippery surfaces and wood rot

Suitable for any type of flat roof design or membrane

Can be used in conjunction with concrete slabs or natural stone

Can be laid in a straight line or a “chess board” pattern, subject to taste

We also supply FSC® certified timber as we have FSC® Chain of Custody (speak to rep)
