Buzon's estimated numbers of screwjack pedestals for flooring support applications

The number of pedestals required for a job depends on number of tiles, size and weight of tiles and area shape

Technical Information: Pedestal Composition

Head Attachments – The hole in the top of the head allows either spacer tabs (as shown here) or joist cradles to clip to the top of the head to allow different surface materials to be secured.

Slope Corrector – PH5 - Different pedestal models are either supplied with a fully integrated PH5 or the ability to attach them if required. By rotating the top of the slope corrector it is possible to adjust the angle of the head between 0 and 5% to compensate for any gradient on the substrate and therefore allowing the surface of the pedestal to be perfectly level. The angle set is displayed in a window on the top of the slope corrector and an arrow indicates which direction the pedestal should face.

Head - The head of the pedestal has a surface area of 190 cm2 and a diameter of 155mm and is strengthened with several reinforcement veins. Dependent on the model it attaches to a coupler, inverter or base with a safety lock system to ensure that a minimum of 3 ribs overlap for maximum strength.

Coupler C2 – Couplers are added to the DPH5 model to extend the height range of the pedestal. It consists of two cylinders that screw in to each other equipped with a safety lock system that prevents overextension and ensures maximum strength. The ‘ears’ can be used for additional bracing and weep holes allow liquid to flow freely. Heights can be pre-set off-site or prior to installation using a combination of printed symbols on couplers, head and inverter.

Inverter – The inverter attaches the head or a coupler to the base in models DPH5 and above, with a safety lock system preventing overextension and ensuring maximum strength. The top of the inverter features a screw adjustment regulator for easy height adjustment.

Base – The supporting base of the pedestal has a surface area of 315 cm2 and a diameter of 200mm. For stability and load distribution the base has 8 reinforcement veins which line up with 8 holes (diameters of 4mm and 8mm alternately) that can be used for attaching the base to a concrete, wood or steel surface if required. Weep holes allow liquid to run freely.
