A Belgian innovation, the award winning Buzon Pedestal offers the flexibility of creating raised floors in external applications on balconies, terraces and green roofs in conjunction with any type of paver or timber decking. In the instance of a leak, this allows for the easy removal of either the pavers or timber decking, making it easy to inspect the waterproofing membrane and investigate the source of the leak. Once the membrane has been repaired and the leak addressed, the pavers or timber decking can be reinstated with minimal effort.
Made from high strength, UV resistant, recycled polypropylene, the pedestals are capable of supporting over 1,000 kg each. Height adjustability of between 17 mm-850 mm allows unsightly plumbing and electrical services to be concealed under the floor.
A key benefit of the innovation is the patented slope-correcting device, which compensates for a substrate fall of up to five per cent achieving a perfectly level floor finish. Interchangeable spacer tabs allow for 2,4.5,6,8, & 10mm gaps between pavers, providing positive drainage and allowing for external and internal floor finishes to be at the same level.
The pedestal also reduces sound transmission and increases the thermal insulation of roofs. In addition it reduces weight loading by eliminating the use of sand and cement mortar beds.
