  • The Advantages of Pedestals

    Updated on: 03-14,2023 / Views:

    Architectural renderings of the finalized appearance of urban regeneration projects are routinely included in early planning applications and public consultations, with computer-generated graphics bringing designers' dreams for future street scenes to life. Large expanses of paving connecting commercial and recreational activities with transportation hubs, housing, and "centrepiece" attractions like fountains or gardens are a common feature of these projects, which are frequently stunning. The success of these areas depends on their aesthetics and performance, which are appropriately taken into account early in the development procedure. All too frequently, however, the pedestal systems that provide the invisible support for what can be hundreds of square meters of pricy and heavy asphalt go unconsidered. So what should you think about?


    The advantages of pedestals

    Paving or decking is supported by pedestals on roof terraces, balconies, or at street level. From entry-level fixed-height goods to self-leveling, adjustable, and heavy-duty pedestal devices, there is a vast range of merchandise available. All offer a "floating floor" with flat, homogeneous surfaces that are spirit level, isolate the paving or decking from the base structure, improve drainage, shield the ground below, and do so without the use of sand or cement.


    Quick installation, the ability to handle complex shapes and pitches, and ease of maintenance are all major advantages of using pedestals for many specifiers and end clients. Flooring components like slabs and decking can be easily removed for inspection or repair, and services can be run in the space beneath.


    Depending on the project's requirements, intricacy, and weight of the paving, the appropriate solution must be chosen. Do the site's levels, height thresholds, or lightwells, roof windows, or penetrations vary? For instance, where felt overlaps on a roof deck, there may be flaws or ridges, or paving slab thickness may vary somewhat from project to project. Self-leveling pedestals, which can also be utilized to provide the necessary fall across a flat roof, are ideal in both circumstances.

    For instance, self-leveling pedestals with adjustability might cleanly finish a ground floor region that needed to be flat with a building or home's doorway threshold without compromising the DPC. When in doubt, specifiers and contractors are advised to consult pedestal manufacturers for advice on product selection. Reputable providers provide design software, layout tools, and other technical assistance to customers unsure of which pedestal system will best meet their needs.

    Also, this method makes it possible to collect rainwater for reuse.


    Because they don't require mechanical fasteners to penetrate roof membranes, protect the roof finish, are more lightweight than bedding into mortar, and provide a quick and affordable way to turn unused and unattractive flat roof areas into beautiful, usable spaces, pedestals are especially popular for roof and balcony projects. They are also future-proof because, should a problem emerge, they can be lifted to provide quick and simple access to the roof deck.
