When we think external patios we see traditional ceramic tiles glued on plaster to the substructure. However, external patio flooring is exposed for several factors of atmospheric conditions. Constant impact of external confitions bring slowly damages in patios surface and especially between tiles joints.
When tiles are firmly glued to the basis in the effect of material stress there are becoming damages which finally makes external floor full of defects.
The solution of laying tiles on supports were for example used in ancient Rome.
In this way were laid floor of Roman thermal baths under which hot air were blowed.
Alternative for traditional patio terraces is a system of ventilated terraces on adjustable pedestals. The solution is much more durable and easier to use.
When using ventilated terrace technology external flooring is no longer a problematic case.
External patio terraces on regulated height pedestals is a technology were top surface of terrace (tiles or decking joists) lay freely on adjustable pedestals and in a result whole terrace floor is in level despite base structure can be in slope.
Whole terrace is not fixed to the basis and in a result external weather conditions not lead to layers defects.
|Fast water drain age
Tiles gap allow water to drain fast and easily. Water does not lay on the terrace surface.
|Additional thermal insulation
Adjustable pedestals system ensure better thermal insulation. Air gap between terrace surface and basis cause constant air circulation. It makes waterproof layer higher effective and more durable. Water insulation is not exposed to external atmospheric factors and UV radiation.
|All installments under the terrace
Raised floor mount on adjustable pedestals is solution which allows to lay all installments (pipes, electric cables etc.) Under the terrace. All wires can arranged under the terrace surface with every moment access.
Ventilated terraces doesn`t need many heavy weight plasters as in traditional terraces. Raised Floors are low weight construction what contributed to lower investment costs.
Leveling terrace with using adjustable pedestals is very simple. Construction of terrace is Stable and there is constant access to waterproof insulation.
