Decking pedestals Raptor Series advantage
There are many solutions for a joists and beams supporting. This case is more or less a matter in almost every decking projects.
Solutions different as their durability. Bags filled with a concrete, wooden wedges, some plank clippings sometimes stacked together. The common thing for this placeholder solution is no guarantee for lifetime working and good support. No declared parameters or lack of precision it`s just few of many disadvantages.

Solid and stable surfaces with low slope is not a big challenge. But there are many types of a top surfaces that are in a big slope and than decking pedestal are tilted from the axis. Without base tilt correction joist is not fully supported and pedestals are eccentric compressed.
What is load resistance of a pedestals with eccentric compression? What is stability of a pedestals in long time manner? It is almost impossible to say because every project is different that is why decking pedestals Raptor series has a slope coreector which compensate slope on the ground so that pedestals is staying always vertical.
