To create a perfectly level deck surface on roofs and decks a pedestal system is often used. This system can be used for both residential and commercial purposes. It is long-lasting and affordable.

Pedestal paver systems helpto raise decks or install paving slabs on roofs or over inclining or uneven substrates. Importantly this system can be used to eliminate the construction of any supporting structure such as beams or bearers. And consequently it helps to reduce the total expense.

It provides the most effective and easy method for constructing decks over pipes, cables or service ducts. It is also the ideal construction method for building perfectly level rooftop decks with lightweight pavers.Pedestal paver systems are widely used in various applicationsincluding landscaping, elevated decks, roof decks, balconies, patios, plazas, terraces, patios and water features.

Generally speaking an adjustable height pedestal consists of 3 basic components:a wide circular base, a screwed columnar body and a flat circular head into which spacer tabs for the pavers are mounted or installed. The central screwed column is designed to make height adjustment up-and-down by screwing the column to the left or right and to provide a continuous height adjustment. On sloping or uneven ground it is generally necessary to ensure that the head of the pedestal is parallel to the deck surface. There are several ways that pedestal manufacturers achieve this. One way is to use concentric discs of different thickness, another way is to use similar discs but in this case they are thinner on one side than the other and the third type of option which is used to uniquely with the Eterno pedestals is to incorporate a swiveling, self adjusting head which requires no additional slope correction component and can provide for adjustment up to 5%. With the other systems, the extra slope compensation components are either placed at the base of the pedestals or on the head of the



A single pedestal can provide height adjustment from a minimum of maybe under half an inch to over 3 inches. With the lower height pedestals of course it's not possible to achieve much adjustment because the screwed section is so short. At such low levels is debatable whether it is better to use stackable fixed height pads since typically these are considerably lower in cost than a screwjack pedestal. At the other end of the scale for the highest pedestals, the extra height is achieved by adding separate extension elements which are fitted between the base section and the head. These can be stacked one on top of another to provide additional height, where the maximum height is really only limited by the stability of the pedestals and the maximum loading capacity.

The minimum height of an adjustable height pedestal is generally about 1 ½". Where you need to install pavers and make some height adjustment is below this specific level, then you need to use fixed height pads which are typically ½" or 3/4" in height. These fixed height pads can typically be stacked one on top of another and/or 1/8" thick rubber shims can be inserted between the paver and the pads to provide small adjustments as well..

Typical pedestal design characteristics
