Q: What makes the material surfaces look uniform? A: Spacer tabs create a uniform gap between the slabs placed on top of the pedestals. The tabs are available in different widths, depending on the space required. The following widths are available: 3, 5, or 8mm.
Q: My tiles are not uniform in thickness, will this cause a problem? A: Rubber shims are available to adjust small differences in tile thickness. They are available in 1 and 2 mm thickness and are placed directly on top of the pedestals. Besides, the Rubber shims could also avoid the noise of the stone tiles touch the MTech pedestals.
Q: What if I need a bigger slab bearing surface? A: To increase stability a pedestal can be turned upside down (base becomes top).
Q: What kind of decking materials can be used with MTech Pedestals? A: MTech pedestals can be used with any kind of decking material including: stone, granite, marble, hydra-pressed concrete, wood, composites, industrial grating, ceramic and wood tiles.
Q: Do the pedestals need assembly? A: MTech pedestals are all assembled well, only need to adjust the height which you require during the installation.
Q:How do I adjust for height? A: It is very easy to adjust the MTech pedestals height, adding one Extender could raise the height of 80-120mm, and on a small range of height it just need to screw or unscrew the MTech pedestals, after the MTech pedestals reach the height you require screw down the strengthening right to fix the height. MTech pedestal is also equipped with a safety clip system to avoid unscrewing.
Q: How do I adjust the pedestal for slope? A: MTech slope corrector could be placed on the bottom of the MTech pedestals, with the MTech slope corrector it is possible to build a perfectly level surface by rotating the MTech slope corrector. It is possible to adjust the slope between 0% to 5%.
Q: How do I figure out the number of pedestals I need? A: Use the following formula (This formula is only suitable for the tile length less than 800mm) 1. Include one pedestal for every tile 2. Count the number of tiles around the perimeter of the tiled area and divide this number by two 3. Add the number of pedestals calculated in step 1. to the number calculated in step 2 4. Add 5% to the total number of pedestals calculated in step 3 5. Remember we are happy to help with your calculation
