Paving Pads

20190703_111823484_iOS 1

Create something stunning

  • Ideal for converting unused spaces such as rooftops and decking areas into something attractive and durable to enhance the footprint of your building
  • Effective cover and protection for important waterproofing membranes
  • Designed to ensure ground floor patio areas will be flush with the house without any compromise on damp course

Suspended Paving and Decking System

  • Any unsightly but crucial objects including pipes, outlets and cables can comfortably but hidden away beneath decking or paving slabs to improve the aesthetics of the area and building footprint.
  • No standing water will be left. By lifting the paving slabs or decking, drainage is increased to ensure water can drain freely beneath. This is designed to prevent slip hazards and ponding whilst also helping to provide aeration and ventilation to the area beneath.

Fully Adjustable

  • Our range of pads allow precision installation to the millimetre
  • Flat surfaces can be created regardless of any imperfections on a slab
  • Designed to cope with falls whilst effectively accommodating large drops and channels

Paving applications

Our ingenious headpiece design has been created to provide 4 x positioning lugs (fins) which are laid out in a crucifix formation set towards the edges of the headpiece:

  • The lugs help to provide effective drainage by separating paving slabs and tiles
  • They ensure that the slabs are laid in a straight line by creating a uniform paving line
  • Because they create a suspended system, everything is held in place by the weight of the slab
  • The safety levels of the paving will be increased because rainwater is allowed to run between and under the slabs ensuring no standing water is left

Decking applications

The easy adjustment of the pedestals can significantly speed up the installation.

The lugs (fins) are towards the edges of the headpiece ensuring a 55mm gap between them. This is designed to house a standard 4″x 2″ timber joist between the lugs and decking boards which are then fixed to the frame of the joist.

Do you have an ultra-low threshold? Our range of Minipads range offers the perfect time-saving alternative to fixed height pads and are ideal for any projects which require retro-fitting or overlaying.

Our range contains three products in heights starting at 10mm up to 40mm:

  • 10-25mm
  • 22-30mm
  • 28-40mm

Minipad benefits:

  • Precision, split-millimetre accuracy is achieved to accommodate tiny changes in the level.
  • Specifically designed to allow use within very tight working spaces
  • The thread allows 5mm of change to the level
  • An additional 5mm extension plate is fitted to the bottom of the pedestal
  • The additional plate can be turned to change a 10-15mm pedestal into a fully adjustable 15-20mm pedestal. Ideal for use within tight spaces
  • The addition of a specially designed handle allows installers to adjust the height whilst slab is in position. This in turn removes the constant need to lift the slab in order to change the height

This is our standard range of adjustable pads.

The lugs on our universal head have been positioned to hold both paving slabs and timber decking joists.

Height range: 35mm up to 365mm

Universal Extra

Universal Extra

Our range of Universal Extra pads is designed to allow the installation of paving and decking across a significant height range.

With heights from 85mm up to 380mm covered but in just three different products:

  • 85mm-135mm
  • 125mm-215mm
  • 210mm-380mm

This removes confusion relating to the correct size to choose. With the heights marked out each 10mm on the side of stems – the exact height you require will be easily visible.

For more technical information click on the Installation, Specification and Technical data tabs below.

To make choosing and estimating easer our Adjustables range is broken down into three categories:

  • Standard Universal range: 35mm up to 365mm
  • Universal Extra range: 85mm up to 380mm
  • Minipad range: available 10mm up to 40mm

We have a number of helpful videos providing guidance on unpacking, assembling and installing our pedestals:
