Raised floors for balconies, podiums and roof tops made easy with Buzon Pedestal System

The Buzon pedestal system allows for the creation of raised floors on balconies, terraces and green roofs and can be used with any type of paver or timber decking.

In the instance of a leak, this system allows for the easy removal of the floor surface, making it easy to investigate the leak and repair the problem with minimal effort.

Buzon pedestals can support over 1000kg each (these have been tested to exceed 2000kg each) and have a patented built-in slope correction device. The Buzon range with slope correction can achieve up to 10% falls, more than any other pedestal in the market, guaranteeing perfectly level floors.

With height adjustability of between 11mm - 1120mm, the pedestals allow services (ie. plumbing, electrical and other) to be concealed under the floor.

Spacer tabs allow water run off and are available in 2mm, 3mm, 4.5mm, 6mm, 8mm and 10mm.

The pedestals also reduce sound transmission and increase the thermal insulation of roofs. In addition, the product reduces weight loading by eliminating the use of sand and cement mortar beds, typical with paving.

Access to all services

Accessing services when they pass across roofs or podiums poses many issues both for designers and maintenance teams. Traditionally, services have been laid either above the surface or, where the areas utilised for pedestrian or vehicle traffic, beneath concrete, paving or other substrates. Neither option is ideal. When services are laid on the surface, they obstruct, making the area unusable. Burying pipes, cables and ducts generally results in expense and disruption when things go wrong.

The installation of a raised floor system overcomes all these issues. Raised floors generally utilise pedestals supporting concrete or porcelain paving, timber and composite decks, GRP grating and other substrates so services are easily accommodated underneath.

All these attributes save time as well as the inconvenience, costs and safety risks associated with excavating the substrate to locate and rectify service- related problems. They also allow additional services to be installed while leaks in roofs or podiums are easily traced as the waterproof membrane is far more visible.

Importantly, although the surface of the raised flooring is perfectly level, excellent drainage is provided as the gradient of the roof or podium on which the pedestals are placed can be maintained to ensure effective water runoff. Slope correctors, which allow for adjustment to compensate for the roof pitch or, for locally uneven sub bases, are available to ensure the pedestals still remain fully in contact with the substrate. This is important when pedestals sit on single-ply or bituminous membranes. The pedestal MUST be 100% in contact with the substrate to prevent ‘pinching’, indentation and false loads.

From a construction perspective, the use of raised access floors considerably lightens the structural load on the building when compared with a solid deck construction. Raised floor systems can be built directly over single-ply roofs without adding significantly to the structural loading of the roof of the building.

These advantages translate into higher values for properties as areas that would previously not have been available for use can be utilised; for example, through the ability to create useable roof and balcony spaces. With this in mind, raised floor systems are being used on prestigious architectural projects to deliver outstanding functionality and cost performance.

Buzon pedestal systems are available in the UK from Buzon UK who offer a national installation service plus technical and on-site support.
