In this article you will learn:
What are the series of DD Pedestals terrace pedestals
Which floors are recommended for each of them
What additional accessories can you add to each of the series

Are you at the stage of getting acquainted with our offer of terrace pedestals? Or maybe you already know them well and are looking for a place where you will gather all the information about each series, available additional accessories, preferred places of use as well as height ranges? You can find all this information in this article. We have prepared an extensive comparison of terrace pedestals in a clear table.

First, some basic information about our product range, and the table comparison of terrace pedestals is presented below.

Our terrace pedestals are divided into 5 different series. 

  1. Support pads
  2. Spiral
  3. Raptor 
  4. Standard
  5. Max

Each of them is characterized by specific details that affect their applicability.

And so in short:

1. Support Pads Series

It is a solution that does not require any specialized tools or skilled skills. Terrace pads for slabs are perfect for the construction of ventilated terraces without gluing, such that are laid dry. 

terrace pads without height adjustment

If your substrate does not require leveling and lifting, if there are no large slopes to overcome, then this solution is the best for you.

The support pads have a constant height. It cannot be regulated. However, they can be stacked on top of each other, which makes them a multiple of their basic height when stacked. In addition, slight unevenness / heights can be changed with 1.5mm rubber shims or 3 and 8mm SBR rubber granule pads.

We can choose from 6 support pads with 5 different heights.

  • 2 mm - DDP 002 - black and transparent, made of plastic
  • 8 mm - DDP 008 - black, made of rubber
  • 10 mm - DDP 010 - black, made of plastic
  • 15 mm - DDP 015 - black, made of plastic
  • 16 mm - DDP 016 - black, made of plastic

2. SPIRAL Series

Adjustable spiral pedestals for tiles are intended for all those who appreciate the advantages of ventilated terraces, but need the possibility of adjusting the height of the adjustable pedestals with the lowest possible height of the final terrace from the ground, as they can be adjusted from 10 mm. The comparison of terrace pedestals prepared by us perfectly illustrates these dependencies.

The lowest pedestals SPIRAL lowers the minimum height of the terrace to be adjusted to 10 mm. Therefore, it allows to use the technology of ventilated terraces even at very small distances between the ground and the terrace.

The highest one allows you to raise and adjust the floor height up to 210 mm.

The Spiral series of terrace pedestals can be used both for tiles terraces and boards and joists.

We divide them into 11 pedestals with the following height ranges:

  • 10 - 17 mm - SPIRAL 010-017

4. STANDARD Series

Standard series terrace pedestals are an ideal solution for supporting ceramic, stone and concrete terrace tiles, all kinds of construction gratings, joists of wooden or composite terraces and other surface elements such as floors, pavements or platforms.

The possibilities of their application are very wide - they have been adapted for use in residential buildings as well as in public and industrial facilities.

comparison of terrace pedestals - Standard series

The STANDARD series has a smooth height adjustment. It is made by mutually turning the bolt with its flange (gray part of the bracket).

A very practical solution is the possibility of performing an inspection of the ground condition after the terrace has been installed. You can remove the tile from the support at any time and inspect the substructure. you can also replace one (or several) damaged tiles without having to dismantle most of the terrace or tear off the tiles.

The situation is similar with wooden or composite terraces. The joists and boards are twisted and it is enough to remove the screws to disassemble individual elements. Whether it is enough to disassemble one board or, for example, additionally two adjacent boards, depends on the assembly system in which it was made.

The STANDARD series is divided into 4 basic ranges, plus the possibility of extension with the distance sleeve DS 100 mm:

  •  30 - 45 mm - DDP 030-045
  • 45 - 70 mm - DDP 045-070
  • 70 - 120 mm - DDP 070-120
  • 120 - 220 mm - DDP 120-220
  • 220 - 320 mm - DDP 220-320
  • 320 - 420 mm - DDP 320-420

5. MAX Series

The adjustable MAX terrace pedestals is adapted to the installation of both terraces made of tiles and boards, whether wooden or composite. This series will be perfect for the construction of standard terraces as well as other structures with higher requirements. In addition to their use in industrial construction, the adjustable MAX pedestals are often used in specialized urban projects such as city fountains, boulevards, promenades or high special purpose floors.

comparison of terrace pedestals - MAX series

A comparison of terrace pedestals of all DD Pedestals series shows that the MAX series is unrivaled in terms of height and strength

You can easily raise the terrace up to 95 cm while maintaining its stability. You can complete the functionality of the pedestals with additional equipment.

Their wide base, 210 mm, and additional stabilizing elements allow a single MAX-type adjustable pedestal to withstand a live load of up to 1000 kg! The breaking load is almost twice as high.

A practical slope corrector has been designed for this series' pedestals (as for the SPIRAL). It allows you to use the pedestals on surfaces with quite significant slopes and adjust the angle of inclination of the structure by up to 8%. And by adding the LE 6% self-leveling head to this, you can achieve a slope adjustment of up to 14%.

The pedestals of this series have been divided into 3 basic height ranges and the highest of them can be supplemented with the DS 200 mm extension sleeve and then we will get another 3 heights, reaching as much as 950 mm. Below is a breakdown of all of them:

  • 45 - 75 mm - MAX 045-075
  • 75 - 150 mm - MAX 075-150
  • 150 - 350 mm - MAX 150-350
  • 350 - 550 mm - MAX 350-550
