C2 COUPLER AND C5 COUPLER

The C2 or C5 coupler is used when the height of the pedestal exceeds 175mm (DPH 6 and upwards). The coupler is fitted by screwing between the base and the head of a DPH pedestal to make the higher pedestals in the DPH range (DPH-6 to DPH13). Depending on the desired height, the double C5 coupler can be used.

Two integrated flanges on either side of the coupler allow for mechanical fixing or cross-bracing, guaranteeing enhanced stability when the height exceeds 600mm. Both the C2 and C5 coupler are used for DPH 6-13 units.



DPH JOIST CRADLE

Joist Cradles support any kind of substructure and are the ideal joist support in height restricted areas, especially on roof terraces and patios. Placed on DPH pedestals and fixed using a plug-in system they firmly hold joists supporting deck boards.

Buzon joist cradles support the following substructures:

  • timber batten (joists)
  • composite battens
  • aluminium or steel support sections

Width of the support: up to 63mm. Fixing holes on both sides of the support are for mechanical fixing.


DPH SPACER TAB

Spacer tabs are 3 mm thick x 17 mm high and are fixed by pressure on to the head of DPH pedestals. Spacer tabs regulate spacing between the pavers, ensure alignment and free water drainage.

    The rubber protector pads are made of recycled rubber and are available in 3mm and 5mm formats. When placed under the pedestal, the pads protect the roof if required. They can also be used to raise the pedestal by 3mm or 5mm plus provides additional comfort.


      Buzon bubble level

      The Buzon Bubble Level is an essential tool if using the Buzon slope correction system.

      The Buzon Bubble Level measures the value and direction of the slope in any location where a Buzon pedestal is located. This information is essential for the use of our correction systems and slope control.


      ALURAIL SYSTEM

      The Buzon ALUrail system for outdoor raised floors allows for a simple and cost effective solution for all external terrace applications.

      The system can be used for various substrates, 20mm porcelain, concrete and natural stone pavers. Practical and functional, the ALUrail system can be used where the void is limited. The system, including the Buzon Pedestal range starts at 29mm.

      The system includes adjustable height supports in polypropylene, reinforced aluminium profiles and 3mm space tabs which allow for free drainage to the podium or WPM.

      The ALUrail comes in 2 heights; 18mm and 38mm, a width of 65mm, and lengths of 2400mm.

      Either side of the ALUrail are 2 rubber pads for the paver to sit on, offering a noise dampening feature. In between the rubber pads is a continuous recessed gap for the 3mm spacer tab to lock into, providing drainage between pavers.

      The ALUrail is powder coated in black, therefore not noticeable between the paving slabs. (Silver rails are noticeable). This, combined with the Buzon pedestals, rubber pads and spacer tab, will prove to be a ‘hidden’ system.

      The ALUrail is an ideal addition where tight datums are required, cantilevering or spanning awkward areas or equipment (i.e. ducting, air conditioning trays and pipes, power ducting, cable trays etc).

      ALUGRATE SYSTEM

      The ALUgrate aluminium drainage system is discreetly fixed to the timber or ALUrail joist using a hidden clip system, or surface fixed between the vanes.

      Designed to mirror a DURADECK deckboard (hardwood or composite) and the Alfresco Floors range of 20mm external grade porcelain paving.

      The purpose of grating requirements is to remove splash-back issues from water hitting the decking or paving, and in turn onto the doors or facade. The special geometry of the ALUgrate allows it to ‘trap’ rainwater, which then falls directly onto the WPM or insulation layer.

      The length of the ALUgrate is 4000mm, offering a seamless installation, whereas traditional grating is typically 1200mm.
