WALLBARN HAS A RANGE OF HEAVY DUTY ADJUSTABLE PEDESTALS SUITABLE FOR HIGHER CLEARANCES & GREATER LOADS
Due to the success of our ASP Adjustable Pedestal range, Wallbarn has developed the MEGAPAD, for higher and lower clearances off the deck.
Megapads feature significant benefits over other pedestals. These include:
- Very heavy duty
- Made from high quality virgin fibre polypropylene
- Large weight distribution
- Huge height range
- Lockable to eliminate unwinding
- Reversible for edges and corner
- Fixing holes in base
- Slope correctors for more stable installation
- Super-low temperature tolerance
Designed to hold suspended paving slabs, these pedestals / support pads have a massive range of height. We can supply fully lockable, telescopically adjustable support pads from 22mm right up to 1020mm.
This includes our special MINI MEGAPADS, available from 22mm.
They are also extremely tough and strong, with each support pad (at 35mm and above) able to tolerate a weight of 1,560 kg and tolerate temperatures as low as -40°Celsius.
These units are be used where very large cavities are required. For very large paving areas built-to-falls where the levels change significantly across the deck, Megapads are ideal. Even when highly suspended, the slabs are perfectly secure and stable. The injection moulded polypropylene units will hold even very heavy stones and slabs in place without risk of toppling.
Often on projects details such as steps, gullies and voids; or existing services such as pipework, air conditioning ducts; mean a very large cavity between paving and deck is required.
Megapads are extremely strong and secure. They can hold up massive slabs and extremely heavy stone such as granite. They can tolerate very heavy traffic so are ideal for public walkways.
At 115mm high and above, the lug headpiece is removable. When paving up to the edges, up to balustrades and railings, or around corners; the very edge of the slab needs to be properly supported to prevent that slab tipping if weight is placed onto the lip.
The support pad can be turned upside down and the lug head unit placed into what was the base plate.
Since the base plate is 200mm in diameter, when turned upside down it, the new headpiece is 200mm in diameter, wider than the new base plate. Therefore, the paving slab sits securely onto the wider headpiece and does not overhang the supporting columns. This means the slabs can be butted up against the wall without risk of tipping.
Their superior strength and flexibility mean that installers can adjust the height of the pedestal whilst the slab is in situ. This avoids having to repeatedly lift the slab to adjust the levels, a huge advantage when using very large or very heavy slabs.
