Supports for paving decking

Your problem...?


When pavings are laid directly onto a sand/cement bed, the temperature extremes of frost, rain and direct sunlight, can cause the pavings to move over a period of time, and this could eventually lead to them lifting, sinking or cracking. Futhermore, this movement can even lead to damage or puncturing of the water proofing membrane.
 
Paving Supports

...Our solution!

CARO SUPPORT is one of the most economical and simple ways of laying roof or terraced areas. This Polypropylene injection moulding raises the paving 15mm above the supporting surface and its integral spacers ensure a constant 5mm gap between each slab, so all water drains away immediately, leaving an "ever-dry" paved area.

Add to this the protection the waterproofing membrane is given from Ultra Violet damage and the temperature extremes, it is easy to see why this method of laying pavings has become so popular.

As the paving is loose laid it's simplicity itself to replace damaged slabs or to inspect for possible waterproofing failure and all drainage outlets, services, manholes, etc., can be covered over to leave a completely unobstructed paved area.

Weather delays now become a thing of the past and the ease of using CARO SUPPORT can return savings in time and labour.
 
Decking Supports
 

Stackable for extra height…


As the CARO SUPPORT has been designed to fully interlock when stacking, various heights of raised paving can be achieved from 15mm upwards. This is particularly useful when the removal of falls from the paved area is necessary. Combinations of supports and levelling shims will allow the gradual increase in raising heights, thereby giving a level finish with all drainage falls under the slabs.

Levelling shims for fine adjustment…


To ensure adequate strength, and minimal tolerance variation in the pavings, it is recommended that hydraulically pressed or reinforced concrete slabs be used.

However, occasions will arise when a combination of unevenness in the supporting surface, or tolerance extremes in the slabs, will require the use of the Levelling Shims. These can easily be broken into halves or quarters and, being only 2mm thick, will give the fine adjustment that may sometimes be necessary.

Edge and corner details…


CARO SUPPORT is designed to offer the complete solution, with no wastage. Edge or corner details are easily installed by the separation of CARO SUPPORT into halves or quarters. Simply flex the support or shim, as illustrated, to achieve a half or quarter unit.
