Due to the simplicity of the Uptec Pedestal System, we are often asked about its limitations. After all, one might wonder how so much can be accomplished by only three components. In particular, we are often asked about using Uptec pedestals on inclined surfaces.
We are happy to tell them that Uptec pedestals are designed for versatility and facilitating complex designs, even in challenging spaces, as well as in more straightforward areas and on level surfaces.
Made of recycled high-density polypropylene plastic, Uptec pedestals can easily accommodate a wide range of decking, flooring and roofing structures. Ideal for use on flat roofs, rooftop decks, balconies or any other outdoor area at or above ground level where you want to create a raised floor, Uptec pedestals are remarkably versatile. They can be used to support nearly any deck surface material, including wood, grating, aluminum, stone, porcelain or other materials.
Because high-density polypropylene plastic is a relative newcomer to the adjustable deck support industry, we understand that homeowners, builders, contractors, architects and developers may have questions.
When it comes to inclined surfaces, Uptec adjustable pedestals were specifically designed to support raised floors in a variety of scenarios, and slope correction has always been intended as a key feature.
Uptec adjustable pedestals offer slope correction of up to 5%, providing flat surfaces wherever required. Bring Uptec pedestals into your projects that are already underway to solve uneven or inclined surface issues.
Every decking or raised floor project has different needs from the next. Uptec adjustable pedestals are versatile enough to tackle any project with ease, reducing your labour and associated expense. When dealing with a slope, choose fixed or self-levelling heads to create perfectly level floors. Uptec pedestals can even be used on projects already in progress, making it easy to level out an uneven or inclined surface.
The SUPAL, SUPAS and SUPAR rings are the major components of the Uptec Pedestal System. As you seek to increase or decrease the height of your pedestal, simply add or remove rings.
Here are a few advantages of using the Uptec Pedestal System on a sloped surface:
- Uptec pedestals are a quick, easy and straightforward solution to uneven surfaces
- Solve problems as they arise, even on the fly, by simply adjusting the self-levelling head
- Use the area under your now-level raised floor to disguise electrical, plumbing and HVAC services
Constructing a deck or patio on an uneven surface has always been challenging. When bringing a pedestal system like Uptec pedestals into the mix, you’ll find it easy to overcome all these slope challenges. Uptec pedestals also offer a variety of other benefits, including:
