Ceramic installation on terrace adjustable pedestals is very simple compared to traditional mounting systems. How to build such a terrace?
The ventilated terrace on adjustable pedestals allows you to build an ideal terrace - easy to maintain and simple to maintain and most importantly without damaging the isolation.
Such a system does not require us to glue the adjustable pedestals to the ground or as in traditional solutions of gluing waterproofing panels.
Thanks to the terrace adjustable pedestals, you can quickly do a ceramic installation on ventilated terrace..
Below we will explain step by step how to install a ventilated terrace.
It will be needed to calculate the amount of materials needed to perform the installation of a ventilated terrace. Here is an example photo of the inventory made.
Determining the right terrace geometry is very important. It will decide about the correctness of its implementation. Therefore, accurately determine the height of DD Pedestals terrace adjustable pedestals.
It is also good to make a terrace design. It will allow you to accurately calculate the materials needed to build a terrace and facilitate assembly work.
- concrete slab
- concrete block on the ground
- stable openwork plate
- XPS / ESP / PIR hard styrodur
Recommended when there is a risk of brackets sliding.
Just adapt the adjustable pedestals to the specific case and cut its base as required.
It is enough to make a bridge from additional lower support pads and a terrace tiles. We will illustrate it below:
Take a look at your terrace and think about the difficult places to make.
You can set the height of the final floor with the help of a laser level. It will allow you to properly determine the geometry of the terrace.
Entrance to the terrace is usually the place according to which we plan the height of the ventilated terrace. Properly adjusted height relative to the threshold will allow comfortable transition from room to outside.
It is recommended that the height between the terrace surface and the threshold of the balcony door is not higher than the (comfortable) step height ~ 15 cm.
If the ventilated terrace has a slope that starts from "zero", use fixed height DD Pedestals. They are specially adapted for terrace tiles. General-purpose rubber building pads can also be used.
If necessary, fixed terrace adjustable pedestals can be leveled to the desired level by placing rubber spacers on one side of the terrace adjustable pedestals only.
The terrace corner requires the use of DD Pedestals support pads that fits perfectly. So, remove the gap spacers from the terrace support and put this like under the tiles. If the bases of the terrace adjustable pedestals do not fit due to the short distance between them, cut its base.
Below graphical illustration of problematic places:
Diagonal lines require cutting terrace tiles into ropings or triangles. This requires a non-standard placement of terrace adjustable pedestals and appropriate board matching.
Sizes after cutting should be anticipated at the stage of starting the terrace construction. For slants, it is best to start with the slant to avoid very small pieces of tiles.
Each terrace has its own unique geometry. Terraces often have arched attic walls. In this case, placing the DDP adjustable pedestals and cutting the boards will require greater precision and density of the DDP adjustable pedestals. Curved panels should be planned already at the stage of starting the terrace construction.
The roof drain is usually located at the lowest point of the terrace. Because of the basket, DDP support pads cannot be placed directly on the inlet. The replacement should be made by placing the DDP support pads next to the roof drain on which the panel is placed, on which the target DDP support pads supporting the terrace tiles is located.
And now a bit about how to mount a raised terrace on joists - that is, a traditional wooden terrace on adjustable pedestals.
Develop a plan for the placement of adjustable pedestals paying special attention to places such as corners, thresholds, doors. The spacing of the adjustable pedestals depends on the size of the joist cross-section and the weight of the terrace. A string is helpful when running straight lines.
Prepare the adjustable pedestals by placing gaps spacer in the screw so that they match the width of the joist or joist adapters. Spacing the adjustable pedestals in the right places. If the ground is not level use adjustable pedestals with a self-leveling head.
Lay the joists on the adjustable pedestals and level them. Use the nuts to adjust the terrace adjustable pedestals to the correct height.
Lay the joists on the adjustable pedestals and level them. Use the nuts to adjust the adjustable pedestals to the correct height. Attach the joists to the adapters with screws.
Whether on adjustable pedestals with spacers or on adjustable pedestals with joist adapters, tightening is done in the same way.
And how? Was it easy, fast and pleasant?
