HDG Building Materials Offers Buzon Pedestals

We have gone to contract for the finish carpentry portion of the project and are hopefully working out the final details of the 5th level exterior deck scope today. I appreciate the clarity you have provided thus far, I wish everyone could be so detailed!

If I had known about screw-jack pedestals earlier in my career I absolutely would have put them everywhere. I like that you can create comfortable level surfaces for people right over the top of sloped surfaces designed to drain. I also like being able to hide irrigation, plumbing, and electrical services below the surface. This is much more elegant than running conduit everywhere.

Buzon Screwjack Pedestals

Buzon screwjack pedestals are suited for both large-scale projects as well as small installations. The award-winning Buzon Pedestal can be used with stone, concrete pavers, wood tile or decking, structural porcelain pavers, glass tile, and steel or fiberglass grating to create raised floors on balconies, terraces, green roofs, temporary floors and for water features.

Buzon’s  slope correcting feature makes it quick and easy to correct for roof pitch or smooth out uneven surfaces. The screw-jack pedestals are height-adjustable from 7/16 to 44 inches (11 to 1118 mm) depending on the series. Buzon pedestals are capable of supporting loads up to 2,200 lbs (1,000 kg) — 1,000 lb design load. Each part of the Buzon pedestal system uses a minimum thickness of 4 mm or 5 mm of polypropylene. The higher pedestals are equipped with reinforcement ribs to further improve the strength and resistance.

Elevated Deck Applications

Applications for elevated deck support include roof decks, patios, balconies, plazas, terraces,  swimming pool surrounds, illuminated floors, exhibition stands, water features, pedestrian walkways, roof access paths,  etc. The possibilities are only limited to the vision of urban planners, architects, landscape architects, builders, and discerning homeowners.  Used on projects all over the world, the applications of Buzon pedestals are endless. You really are only limited by your imagination.

APPLICATION NOTE: Decking Materials and Roof Loading

There are many factors to consider in selecting materials for a rooftop decking application. This application note concerns the load capacity of Buzon screwjack pedestal systems and also explores relative roof loading for various popular rooftop decking materials.

Buzon offers the fastest most accurate slope correction system available. As an installer, it saves me time and labor. That’s important because I want to drain water, not my budget.
