Buzon Deck Screwjack Pedestals

The Viking Buzon system comprises of a series of screw-jack pedestals that support floating deck surfaces (either timber planks, pavers or tiles) in either construction or landscaping situations. Used mostly to support deck surfaces, Buzon pedestals can ensure the exterior deck surface is supported at the same height as the interior floor level whilst still allowing rainfall to drain through to the substrate below. For the NZ Building Code's current standards for E2 (external moisture), this needs to be a minimum of 100mm below the building's interior floor slab level.

Viking Buzon Pedestal System creates a stunning, yet functional outdoor entertainment space. The practicality and durability of this system is essential when a seamless indoor/outdoor flow is not negotiable for a residential or commercial building.

Viking Buzon pedestals have both height (up to one metre high) and slope adjustment (up to 5% = 3 degrees), allowing for the substrate to slope away from the building, while the external deck surface emulates the interior floor level, being perfectly flat at zero degrees.

Key Features
  • Viking Buzon pedestals are made from 80% recycled UV stabilised high strength polypropylene, and are 100% recyclable
  • Water drains between the pavers or timber planks down onto the waterproofing membrane below, giving superior drainage whilst still promoting watershed
  • Screwjack pedestals also hide unsightly services below an attractive deck surface
  • Being able to remove a deck's surface allows access to the membrane to diagnose leaks and easily clean the membrane
  • Temporary raised surfaces for exhibitions or shows can easily be erected and dismantled
  • Screwjack pedestals comply with E2/AS1 as an 'Acceptable Solution' (External Moisture)
  • Viking Buzon pedestals have the largest surface of any pedestal on the market — 325cm2 (20cm diameter)
  • While most pedestals have only height adjustment, Viking Buzon pedestals have both height and slope adjustment
  • Resistant to ageing, poor weather conditions, UV light, almost all chemicals and rot proof
  • Most pedestals have been designed only for pavers, whereas the Viking Buzon system also has a batten support system for timber decking

Scope of Use

Compatible with both paver and timber decks, the deck surface sits above (in most cases) a waterproofing membrane. The slope correction mechanism on top of the pedestal allows the deck surface to lay perfectly flat (0% slope) above the waterproofing membrane which slopes away from the building for drainage purposes, and Buzon pedestals range in height from 17mm to 620mm.

Viking Buzon pedestals can support any type of timber decking or ceramic, stone, concrete paving or flag material, as well as fibreglass or metal grid panels. They are suitable for the smallest residential balcony projects through to large bridge walkways, industrial platforms or large civil projects for public spaces such as those requiring water and power reticulation below the ground which can be easily accessed.

Viking Buzon pedestals are suitable for any kind of stable substrate, including applications directly over insulation panels.
