Fountains on adjustable pedestals began to appear in many places.
They are created in city squares, parks, within the old town as well as in new districts, etc.
These are fountains whose surface cladding tiles are based on stable leveling pedestals. What kind? We'll talk about it later.
They allow you to keep the space for water and carry out the necessary installations. And there are many such installations at the fountain. The entire distribution system of water supply pipes should be led to the holes in the pavers, so that it pleases our eye in an effective way when it comes out.
The prepared floor for the positioning of the adjustable pedestals is usually made in a specific slope so that the water can circulate in a closed circuit.
If the slopes are small, the self-leveling head applied to the adjustable bracket is not necessary.
However, if the drops are significant, it can be applied.
It is fully compatible with the system, designed specifically for our adjustable pedestals.
Here is an example of the use of this useful but not necessary accessory of a terrace adjustable pedestals.
SH rubber pads can be interrupted at the gaps. Thus, up to 4 pieces can be made from one rubber spacer pad. It is useful when we want to align the levels on one adjustable pedestals for each tiles separately. The tiles are not always perfectly even and sometimes require leveling.
We can use them on city squares, where the installation that we run under the floor is an irrigation system or electric cables. Such installations will fit in a 10-16 mm void.
Fixed-height terrace pedestals, as we can see, are too low to run thick pipes of the water system of the fountains between them.
However, this is not the only downside.
After all, the fixed plate supports can be stacked and achieve a height of e.g. 3 times greater, i.e. 45 mm.
However, the bases of the fountains are made in the slopes specified in the project so that the water accumulates in specific places and its circulation is closed.
The adjustable pedestals also allows you to use the LE self-leveling head, which we already wrote about in the earlier part of the article.
Fountains always had to be installed as raised floors.
Previously, complicated steel structures were made to be able to lay the boards on the whole. In addition, the problem was also the subsequent replacement of damaged tiles. It was difficult to adjust the new boards available on the market to those already installed and to the existing structure.
The heights of terrace adjustable pedestals available on the market are enormous and can always be adapted to our conditions
DD Pedestals adjustable terrace pedestals are often chosen for the construction of a fountain. When designing them, we prepared appropriate technical solutions to facilitate assembly and later even draining the water from the inside of the adjustable pedestals before winter.
Such boards do not endanger the use by residents and are relatively easy to clean. As a rule, they are washed by the water flowing from the fountain.
On hot days, they provide cooling for people staying in the squares around. The dispersing breeze and water fog dissipates into the surrounding area and gives relief.
For them, fountains are the greatest attraction and fun. They can run around the pouring water or even ride small bikes and scooters.
Considering the fact that we choose adjustable terrace brackets for assembly and all other assembly accessories that help in efficient and proper assembly, we are responsible for:
work involving the mere laying of ceramic tiles can be done by anyone. Anyone who knows such technical work.
If the shape is not too complicated and we have some equipment that allows, for example, cutting such thick boards, you can try to make it yourself.
Therefore, it is worth considering the choice of a qualified team that specializes in laying terrace tiles.
We can't handle these things alone. This is where a professional needs to step in. It is he who will perform both the connection of the water installation as well as make all the cuts.
Check Here I am attaching a link to the installation instructions for raised floors.
Well, summing up the previous information, any fixed height stands will not be a good solution for making a fountain in a raised floor system.
Of course, it all depends on the specific project.
There are no contraindications for low fixed feet to be used to raise the floor, however, it is very rarely found, and in sensitive places.
STANDARD adjustable supports are the basic assembly solution.
Their height range is 30-420 mm.
And, as a rule, it is sufficient.
Investors, however, more and more often choose the MAX series because their construction is much more strengthened than the others.
And it looks like this:
As you can see, the use of terrace pedestals is wide. One possibility is chasing another.
