Hardwood Timber Decking Tiles Offer An Easy Way To Lay Attractive Real Timber Decking Onto Roof Decks And Terraces By using suspended Wallbarn Timber Paving Tiles, installers combine the natural, attractive finish of timber decking with the speed and ease of laying paving slabs.
Traditionally laying timber decking directly onto these deck surfaces led to additional costs of employing specialist carpenters. Laying timber joists directly onto the waterproofing membrane also risked damage over time. Wallbarn Timber Paving Tiles offer the ideal solution. The weight of the tile will hold the system in place.
This suspended system avoids having to fix anything onto the deck and lifts all the timber away from any standing water, avoiding the dangers of a slippery surface.
As everything is free standing, the tiles can be taken up and replaced without disrupting the whole area, should the deck need to be inspected. Unsightly items such as drainage outlets, cables and pipes can be hidden beneath the tiles and accessed easily.
Stunning finishes can be achieved. The tiles can be laid in a straight line pattern or in a “chess board” style, depending on the client’s wishes. We have a range of different timber available sourced from South America, chosen for their beauty and durability including Ipe, Cumaru, Sucupira and Massaranduba. We can also supply FSC® certified timber as we have FSC® Chain of Custody.
They are laid in the same way as regular concrete paving slabs, suspended on Wallbarn’s ASP range of support pads. The four positioning lugs on the head of the support pads allow rainwater to drain in between each tile then flow underneath into an appropriate outlet. This avoids the risk of standing water creating a slippery surface or causing the wood to rot.
They are suitable for any type of flat roof design or membrane, and will not be affected by wind uplift due to the gaps between the slats. They can be used in conjunction with concrete slabs or natural stone.
