Versatile paving & decking supports make light work of difficult locationsPublished 31/05/2017
Levelling a sloping terrace with paving or decking can often present difficulties with regards to the quantity of pedestals required at varying heights. However, along with a comprehensive range of adjustable bases and support plates, Carosystems Limited provide extension pieces to further enhance the Caro Pedestal’s flexibility.
Available in 20mm (F20), 35mm (F35) and 100mm (AF100), the pedestal extension pieces allow you to continue
to utilise the same adjustable base over a large paved or decked area/balcony. The other benefit of the pedestal extension piece is that you can use them in multiples to further adjust the height variance.
In the decking area shown (Image 1), the PV5/9 (Adjustable base to suit heights: 52-84mm) has been utilised
with one and then two F35s (along with a CP support plate for decking) to offer significant adjustment over the entire area. The F35 increases the height of the PV5/9 by 35mm, meaning that the height variance will now be
87-119mm. Stacking a second F35 on top will increase the height by another 35mm (122-154mm) and so on.
The F20 works on the same principle, but offers an increase of 20mm instead of the 35mm.

The AF100 increases the adjustable base height by 100mm. However, whilst the F20 and F35 are fitted between the adjustable base and relevant support plate, the AF100 is screwed in place between the two parts of the adjustable base (the bottom platform and the threaded piece). Again, you can use these in multiples by simply screwing them together. The exploded diagram below (Image 2) shows the component possibilities and where they go within each pedestal.
