Pavers are designed mainly to keep out rain, and are traditionally made from materials such as concrete or porcelain.
The concept of using concrete or porcelain pavers as roof ballast, plaza deck, and terrace pavers has created new opportunities for otherwise lost space. Roofs and decks can now be functional, as well as attractive. They provide durability and protection from harsh weather conditions, while providing drainage and a level walking surface and can be used on TPO roofing and EPDM roofing systems.
Attractive plaza areas offer pedestrians an outdoor place to gather and enjoy fresh air, bright sunshine or beautiful views. Plazas on rooftops and terraces provide practical solutions for maximizing space and building decks over sloping, difficult or uneven surfaces.
Types of Pavers
Concrete Pavers are high density that have a minimum compressive strength of 8000 psi. It is suited for use as a plaza deck component providing a durable yet elegant roof surface. Concrete pavers are elevated on high density polypropylene pedestals, which provide uniform spacing, drainage and can achieve a dead level installation if desired.
Porcelain Pavers are comprised of a 20mm single layer of light-weight load-bearing porcelain designed for use in conjunction with raised pedestals on roof decks.
Wood Deck Tiles are designed for constructing raised wood decks over exterior surfaces such as rooftops, terraces, and plazas, in both residential and commercial applications.
