The new A1 fire-rated pedestal, the A-PED, offers a strong, sustainable and fully adjustable platform to be used for paving and decking.
With its low build-up possibilities, and adjustment range starting at 75 mm, the A-PED is developed to meet the requirements of architects and main contractors.
Meeting the demands for a fully fire-rated external decking solution, the A-Ped is designed specifically for external balconies, terraces, roof and winter gardens.
The A-PED has been built to exceed a 2000Kg (20 Kn) loading per pedestal. This far outweighs standard requirements. The system can be used with other fire-rated compatible materials, for example, aluminium, porcelain, stone and concrete, to comply with current Class A1 building fire regulations.
We identified a huge gap in the UK supply chain to the UK construction industry for a quality fire-rated external flooring system that would meet the new 2019 edition ‘Approved Document B’ - Building Regulations for England.
