Adjustable Support Pedestals are a system that enables the laying of large format outdoor tiles and paving slabs without the need for grout and adhesive. Adjustable Support Pedestals are what is known as a ‘suspended system’, meaning that no mechanical fixings are involved and the weight of the tiles or slabs hold everything in place (thus negating the need for permanent fixing with adhesives).

The pedestals are designed with a telescopic stem which is wound up and down to achieve a completely flat upper paving surface. Changes to height can be made whilst the slab is in place, saving a great deal of time and labour. Benefits of using Adjustable Support Pedestals to install large format outdoor tiles include the creation of a void beneath the paved/tiled surface which allows rainwater to run between and under the slabs. This ensures that there is no standing water left on the surface, improving health & safety by making surface less slippery.
In addition, the cavity that is created by the tiles being suspended allows pipes, cabling ducts, and drainage channels to be accommodated and tucked away out of sight. A further advantage of using this suspended system is that tiles and slabs can easily be reconfigured or removed completely as they are not permanently fixed with adhesive and grout. Two head types are available; x4 lugs / flat head. The flat head variant can be used when additional support is required beneath the centre of the tile, which can be necessary when using ASPs to install large format outdoor slabs.

Can these be doubled up rather than using bricks to make steps
Our advice: No, we would not advise staking the pedestals.

What’s the max load these can take
Our advice: These pedestals can tolerate loads of 400kg per unit.
What should the depth of the slab be for this type of system?
Our advice: Our pedestals are designed to be used with our 20mm slab tiles.
