Heavy duty adjustable pedestals
- Support heavier loads
- Huge height range
- Very heavy duty
- Suitable for paving and decking
- Super low temperature tolerance (-40°C)
- Heights range from 35mm to 1,020mm
Our MegaPads are made from high-quality virgin fibre polypropylene.
They are adjustable, for a variety of installations, and lockable to eliminate unwinding.Video: supporting terrace paving around a jacuzzi
At 115mm high and above Megapads are reversible.
When paving up to an edge e.g. a balustrades, railings or around corners, the very edge of your slab needs to be properly supported to avoid tipping when weight is applied near the edge.
Megapads can be turned upside down to allow the paving slab to butt right up to the edge of the paving area. The headpiece is 150mm in diameter so serves as an ample base when reversed. And the lug head unit simply fits into what was the base plate.
The specially designed TD headpieces click into the centre of the head of the Megapads to house a timber joist securely in the same way as our TD adjustable range does. The distance between the lugs is 60mm which will house a 2 inch joist.
They will lift the joist frame of the deck to prevent standing water affecting the timber over time. The higher clearances from the deck mean that drainage outlets and other services can be covered over without risk of direct contact with the timber.
The TD Megapads should be chosen for heavy traffic decking areas such as public walkways, jetties and restaurant areas.
We have created a number of helpful How To videos providing guidance on unpacking, assembling and installing our pedestals.
Assembly (115mm and higher)
Megapads are made up of multiple sections, which lock together to form one, sturdy unit.Video: Watch our assembly How To here
At 115mm and above, Megapads are increased in height by adding a 100mm high extension tower.
These towers click into the baseplate and to each other (if required) so multiple towers can be added to the Megapad to increase the height up to 1,020mm.
Please click here to see a diagram of components for the Megapads at each height.
Locking the Height
At 115mm and above, Megapads are designed to be “locked” into place once the correct height has been achieved with the ingeniously designed double-locking- thread mechanism.
The headpiece, the extension towers and baseplate connect together by screwing into each other in the usual manner (green arrows).
As the extension tower, adjustable thread section and headpiece are all screwed into place, a locking ring section (red arrows) is counter threaded at two points, up to the headpiece and at the bottom of the stem, linking either to the baseplate or an extension collar.
Our “Easykey” tool acts as a wrench to ensure the locking nut is tightly screwed into place. The grooves in the handle fit around bars moulded onto the locking ring to give extra leverage when tightening them.
Once these locking rings are secured, the pedestals cannot change in height or unwind.
The Easykey is also used to release the locking ring. It is pressed into a small hole to release a spring within the unit, allowing the threads to be unlocked and untwisted, should installers wish to change the height at a later date.

Shock absorbing shims
For additional sound proofing, or if more grip is needed, rubber shock absorbing shims can be installed onto the headpiece of Megapads. The shim will hook over the positioning lugs so that it sits securely in place.
- base plates come with clip fixings to allow slope correctors to be fitted
- these wedge shaped levellers help prevent tilting of the units when placed on the built-to-falls deck
- the Megapad remains completely vertical with its centre of gravity going directly through the middle of the unit, keeping complete stable
Available in 3 sizes:
- 1% (0.57°)
- 2% (1.11°)
- 3% (1.71°)
Multiple slope correctors can be fitted to increase the angle. Wallbarn recommends a maximum deck fall of 10% when using the pedestal system.
