Plastic support pads are designed for use with paving slabs on balconies, flat roofs and terraces. Manufactured from injection moulded high density polypropylene. They are available in three standard sizes, 10mm, 12mm and 15mm thick.
All our plastic supports come with 3mm lugs as standard. 10 & 15mm supports can be supplied with 5mm lugs if required on special request.
They are designed to stack on top of one another, where installers wish to increase the height of the cavity at intervals – to work around gutter and service pipes, for example. Although lightweight, they are very tough, with a weight tolerance of 400kg per support pad.
By suspending the paving, they allow water to run away from the deck underneath. They also help to prevent the build-up of dirt and other material between the slabs.
This system eliminates ponding on the upper surface of the roof or balcony paving.
1,2 and 3mm leveling shims are also available to allow for undulations in the roof surface and minor variation in paving slab thickness.
