PEDESTALS

PedestalSlides
At PCI we specialize in adjustable, self-leveling, screwjack, plastic and rubber stackable pedestals for lightweight, open joint recreational roof and plaza decks. Every project has its particular requirements. Let's talk about yours.

Hercules Screwjack Pedestal

Stacks Image 223

TYPICAL USE

A critical component of the well-established, loose-laid pedestrian deck assembly, the Hercules Pedestal System TM is engineered to provide a durable, inexpensive support for raised pedestrian surfaces which are commonly masonry, such as wet- cast, high-density, pressed concrete pavers, durable wood such as Ipe decking, as well as metal grates and other engineered deck and flooring products Made from recycled polypropylene the lightweight and reusable Hercules Pedestal System TM can ensure noise reduction, improved drainage, and precise and consistent joint spacing. It can also reduce injuries commonly associated with cracked setting beds and displaced slabs. With a well-respected, long-term performance record, telescoping pedestals, as well as loose laid systems in general, also facilitate inspections and access to conduits below and enable membrane leak repairs at a much lower cost as are maintenance costs in general. Attractive elevated and precisely level recreational areas can easily be created on plazas, roofs and sidewalks at a relatively low cost and low weight compared with setting bed applications. Hercules can also support pipes and conduits. Please call first. Comprehensive full system warranties from paver and membrane manufacturers are available. Call for info.

SUBSTRATES / LEVELING

Typical substrates include protection board, high strength drainage mat and approved extruded polystyrene, Height and slope adjustments can be achieved with the screw jack, couplers and slope compensators, Joist and pipe holders are available, call for details. Fine adjustments are made with textured, slip-resistant rubber shims. Clamping rings are recommended.

LOW HEIGHT RELATED PRODUCTS

For heights between 1/16” and 1.5,” stackable rubber and plastic,, innovative “click to height,” and labor-saving self – leveling, pedestals are available..Please call for details..

LIMITATIONS

Consideration should be given to the physical pressures, including wind and tensile that will affect the installation. Pedestrian decks are dynamic and may necessitate consultation with technical experts during design. Expect settling. Do a mock-up. Consult experts or Plaza Concepts about wind and tensile issues, parapet wall and building heights. Read more about wind at www. plazaconcepts.com/technote508.

INSTALLATION CONSIDERATIONS

IMPORTANT wind and tensile issues should be discussed with our Technical Department or experts such as roof consultants and engineers. Installation should also be in accordance with the most recent instructions of the paver, insulation and membrane suppliers, and in compliance with typical industry standards, such as those of the NRCA, SPRI and RCI as well as applicable building code requirements. Instruments such as: transits, chalk lines, water and laser levels can help establish reference points. It is also wise to consider supporting the middle of a large paver. Rubber shims add grip and deter creep of a paver array.

WARRANTY PROGRAM

Standard 5 year, as well as optional 10, 15 and 20 year warranties are available, as are warranties that cover the full plaza assembly. Call for further details.

Adonis Plastic Pedestal

Stacks Image 234

TYPICAL USE

A critical component of the well-established, loose-laid pedestrian deck assembly, the Adonis Plastic Pedestal System TM is engineered to provide a durable, inexpensive support for elevated slabs, which are frequently masonry such as wet cast, high density, pressed concrete pavers. Made from recyclable high-density polypropylene, the lightweight, stackable and reusable Adonis Plastic Pedestal System can ensure improved drainage, precise and consistent joint spacing, as well as reduce injuries commonly associated with cracked setting beds and displaced slabs. With a well-respected, long-term performance record, loose-laid systems facilitate inspection, access to conduits below and membrane leak repairs at a much lower cost as are maintenance costs in general. Attractive recreational areas can easily be created on plazas, patios, roofs and sidewalks at a relatively low cost and low weight, as compared with setting bed applications.

SUBSTRATES / LEVELING

The typical substrate is an Atlas rubber pedestal, shims, metal or protection board. Below this may be a 9”x 9” piece of the waterproof membrane, proper and high strength drainage mat, geo-tech fabric, approved extruded polystyrene, concrete blocks or prefabricated supports such as the Hercules Screwjack. Height adjustments can be achieved by utilizing these or other appropriate products, or by stacking the pedestals. The S23 in many conditions, will self level. Expect minor settling. We invite you to discuss options with our Tech Department. Fine adjustments can be made with Atlas shims.TM

LIMITATIONS

Consideration should be given to the physical pressures, including wind and tensile that will affect the installation. Like all structures, pedestrian decks are dynamic and may require consultation with technical experts during design. Workmanship will also prove critical to long term performance. Consult the manufacturers of any product that the Adonis rests on for their protection instructions. Consult Plaza Concepts about issues relating to wind, parapet wall heights building heights, live and dead loads.

The spacer of a 1⁄2 or 1⁄4 pedestal can also protect a base flashing from an abrasive paver edge. There are benefits and drawbacks to the various methods of setting masonry such as pavers and other types of decking on pedestals. The Plaza Concepts Tech. Department can assist you with design options.

Atlas Rubber Pedestal

Stacks Image 53

TYPICAL USE

A critical component of the well-established, loose-laid pedestrian deck assembly, the Atlas Rubber Pedestal System ™ is engineered to provide a durable, inexpensive, low-profile, support for elevated slabs, which are most commonly masonry. such as wet-cast, high-density, pressed concrete pavers. Made from recyclable SBR rubber, the lightweight, malleable, stackable and reusable Atlas Rubber Pedestal System ™ can ensure noise reduction, improved drainage,and precise and consistent joint spacing, as well as reduce injuries commonly associated with cracked setting beds and displaced slabs. Flexible rubber pedestals and spacers can accommodate the subtle freeze-thaw expansion which most often occurs with concrete pavers, while at the same time protecting the materials below as valuable cushioning takes place.With a well-respected, long-term performance record, rubber pedestals, as well as loose laid systems in general, also facilitate inspections and access to conduits below and enables membrane leak repairs at a much lower cost, as are maintenance costs in general. Attractive recreational areas can easily be created on plazas, patios and roofs at a relatively low cost and low weight as compared with typical setting bed applications.


SUBSTRATES / LEVELING

Typical substrates include slip sheets, geotech fabric, protection board, high-density; drainage mat, extruded polystyrene, or prefabricated stands such as the Hercules Pedestal Support. Height adjustments can be achieved by utilizing these or other appropriate products, or by stacking the pedestals. We invite you to discuss options with our Tech Department. Atlas Tapered Rubber Pads help compensate for sloped decks. Fine adjustments are made with slip- resistant, textured Atlas Rubber Pedestal Shims.
