Wind Uplift Paver System
High wind and severe site conditions require an outstanding paver system. Tile Tech has developed the Hex-Tray™ system, which is an engineered system used in conjunction with our porcelain roof pavers & adjustable pedestals on top of roof decks to prevent wind-uplift while also providing added safety in case of breakage of pavers. Our patented system is designed especially for the most severe conditions, which require an elevated roof paver pedestal system.
The Hex-Tray™ system creates a solid paver surface which provides high wind uplift resistance. Our system locks down and utilizes the entire roof paver surface, preventing horizontal and vertical movement.
Porcelain Pavers are comprised of a 2-cm / 20mm single layer of load-bearing porcelain designed for use in conjunction with raised pedestals and deck support systems as well as other dry installation and traditional fixing methods allowing total flexibility in design applications.
Our PATENTED Hybrid pedestal system is designed for porcelain pavers to lay level over a built up roofs & allow for self leveling, screw adjustable, PVC pipe adjustable and stack-able.
General installation steps, FIRST the pedestals grid is laid out and pedestals are assembled and tuned to the correct heights using string lines and laser level. SECOND, the Hex-Tray and the porcelain pavers are pre-assembled and adhered using M-1 Chem Link Adhesive and stacked 15 high in a star configuration on top of furniture dollies for easy movement. THIRD, the built-in 1/8” spacers on the Uni-Cap are removed and a 1/16” Hex-Spacer is snapped on top of pedestals. FOURTH, the Hex-Tray/Porcelain Pavers assembly is then placed on top of pedestals and after 3 unites are installed the Hex-Lock Disk are inserted into the curf-cut corners of the 3 trays and the 4th Hex-Tray/Porcelain Paver panel is installed. FINALLY, a 1-1/4” screw is inserted into Hex-Lock Disk and hand tightened.
