Timbur Pedestals

Timbur pedestals

A Timbur pedestal is a support for a column, statue or other structure. A pedestal can be octagonal, square or circular. It is often a decorative element in Classical architecture. The term is also used for a piece of furniture, such as a table or chair.

Suitable for all conventional decking systems, the Timbur terrace pedestal is made of polypropylene, a recycled and recyclable material that respects the environment. It is resistant to variations in temperature (-40°C to +60°C), to UV rays, frost and acids, and it does not rot. It has a special tab that allows it to be fixed to the joist using screws. The adjustment ring allows the height to be precisely adjusted to the millimeter. The head of the decking pedestal is self-levelling, so no shims or packers are required.

Pedestal kits are available in a variety of sizes and styles. Some are natural/rustic in appearance, while others are more contemporary. They are a convenient and cost-effective solution to creating a wooden terrace on flat roofs, old tiled terraces, sand or gravel or stabilised ground.

When installing a terrace on rooftops, plazas, garage roofs or other high-rise buildings, it is important to consider current building fire regulations. This is especially important in cases where the terrace will be occupied. This is where a polypropylene pedestal with a specific ‘fire rating’ is a good choice. The ‘Prime’ adjustable pedestal supports wood bearers, which eliminates the need for a steel substructure, and allows easy access for inspection of the waterproof membranes and any concealed service pipes, ducts or cabling.
