Wallbarn fixed height supports are ideal for paving and timber decking on more straightforward decks.
Wallbarn fixed height plastic support pads are manufactured from HDPE.
They are available in two standard sizes, 14mm and 17mm high.
They act as a guide when laying paving, ensuring a uniform position. This saves a considerable amount of time in application and gives an attractive finish.
It also eliminates the requirement for bedding the paving slabs into the mortar, reducing both mess and waste on the roof and the hassle of getting such materials onto the roof.
The weight on the roof deck is also reduced.
By suspending the paving slabs or the timber joist off the surface, they allow water to run away from the deck underneath. This eliminates ponding on the upper surface of the roof or balcony.
They are designed for the simpler, more straightforward suspended roofs.
Although lightweight, they are very tough, with a weight tolerance of 1,000kg per support pad.
Wallbarn fixed height plastic support pads are made in four quadrants joined together with a small link. They can be easily snapped apart to produce segments of a half or a quarter.
This is useful for paving around corners and at the end of runs. This eliminates any wastage of support pads and gives a tidy finish to details, including when paving flush up to walls and parapets.
Irregular shapes and slabs of different sizes can be accommodated easily using plastic fixed height support pads.
One or more of the positioning lugs can be snapped off in order to create a T junction or other shape to ensure that all edges of the slabs are fully supported and the uniform spacing maintained.
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.
Please look at our page on shims here.
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 to take out any slope and achieve a flat upper surface.
