Buy Outdoor Tile Pedestals

Outdoor paving pedestals are used to prevent standing water and grant easy access for inspections, services and repairs.

Simply attach the pedestal to each corner of the tile and lay out your patio with ease. They are designed to be incredibly strong and durable, so the tiles will stay put no matter how often they are walked over. They can also withstand extreme weather conditions including heavy snow, rain & wind; make sure to have a drip trim installed to ensure adequate drainage.

Our range includes support pads, adjustable pedestals and more, which vary in size from 1.5mm up to 350mm; making them ideal for anyone.

Why should I use a pedestal for pavers?

From protecting your roof against floods to creating a level surface, there are many benefits to using a pedestal for your outdoor pavers.

  • Flow of Rainwater: Instead of a build-up of standing water, water will instead drain freely beneath tiles, reducing the risk of slip-and-fall accidents. This is beneficial for both the weather and cleaning the tiles. Air space underneath also allows pipes, cable ducts and drainage channels to be hidden away.
  • Improved airflow: A gap underneath the tiles allows for improved airflow which helps prevent moisture and stagnant air underneath, and ultimately reduces the chances of mould and mildew from growing underneath.
  • Levelling: Outdoor surfaces are often uneven, so instead of having the impossible task of levelling the ground, you can use a pedestal. Pedestals can be adjusted to precise heights ensuring a flat surface for your patio.
  • Durability: Pedestals are made from a wide range of materials including high-density plastic, metal & rubber. This ensures survival against extreme weather conditions and provides a strong & sturdy surface for people to walk over.
  • Easy installation: Pedestals can be installed by anyone, even without any prior DIY knowledge. No tools or additional equipment is required; simply line them up and place the tile on top.
  • Easier access: Tiles being on top of a pedestal allows for easy access if one needs maintenance, repair or repositioning; rather than being directly on the bottom surface, you can make contact underneath and lift with ease. You also prevent potential damage or scratches to the bottom surface.
  • No cracks: As tiles are just placed on top and not fixed down to anything, there is no risk of cracks from structural movement.

Tile pedestals use an adjustable screw to raise or lower the height of the pedestal, allowing for accurate levelling of the tiles. They do not require any adhesive or bonding materials, instead, simply place the tiles on top of the pedestals. This prevents the tiles from structural damage and cracks.

Yes, tile pedestals can be used indoors and are common in commercial spaces such as offices, hotels, and museums to create a raised flooring system with underneath access to allow for improved air circulation, and to keep cables and pipes hidden away.
