Anston is proud to be the only Australian supplier to offer a reinforced pedestal paving solution, which has been designed and engineered specifically for pedestal applications.
Anston’s reinforced pedestal pavers incorporate a sturdy, reinforced steel framework within the body of the paver, providing extra protection against breakage from impacts. This ensures that any cracking in the paver’s surface will not compromise the structural integrity of the paver, as the steel frame will firmly hold the body of the paver in place. The security of this added reinforcement is a feature that simply isn’t available in natural stone products, and is only possible in a hand-crafted, engineered paver.
Available in over 40 sizes, our pedestal pavers can be made in all 25 Anston colours and finishes. Enjoy the full range of benefits of using Anston reinforced pavers on a pedestal system, with reliable built-in security to bring you peace of mind.
What Are The Advantages Of A Pedestal Paving System?
A pedestal paving system consists of multiple pavers installed on top of pedestal supports, which raise the height of pavers above the sub-base. This system is commonly used to construct strong and sturdy elevated flooring over waterproof membranes. Due to the absence of grout, the pedestal pavement prevents water entrapment and effectively reduces heat conductivity thus keeping the membrane from expanding due to excessive heat. The highly unique pedestal system creates a level paved surface. The even uniform gaps between pavers and allows water to drain between the tiles. Additional services can be concealed beneath the paving and easily accessed when required by simply lifting the pavers off the pedestals.
At Anston, we offer a diverse range of pedestal paving products to our customers. Designed for installation specifically with pedestal paving systems, our pedestal pavers are highly versatile, aesthetically pleasing and equipped with an in-built safety feature.
Pedestal Paver Installation
Pedestal systems are most commonly used in commercial buildings and residential apartments on balconies and roof terraces. However, there is no limit on the types of spaces that can be designed to use pedestals. We have previously supplied our pedestal pavers for use in private homes.
It is clear that pedestal systems provide a range of benefits to installers as well as end users. If you’re unsure about what type of paving you can use for this application, consult with our experts at Anston for more information. We only source quality materials and products in the construction of our pedestal pavers.
Pedestal systems are typically not appropriate for installation in areas requiring access for vehicular traffic, or heavy machinery such as forklifts and scissor lifts. We strongly recommend installing paving on a solid base for these applications.
Note: Anston does not manufacture the pedestals or pods used in a pedestal system. If you’re looking for a suitable product, we recommend the Buzon range which is available from Pasco Construction Solutions.
