Transform Plain Old Places Into Fabulous New Spaces!

It’s never been so easy to transform wasted space into a fabulous new outdoor living area. Envirospec PAVE-EL Pedestal systems offer an easy and cost-effective way to create luxurious patios, decks and raised floors anywhere, even on a sloped roof.

When building elevated floors of any type, whether roof decks, swimming pool decks, raised patios or green roofs, PAVE-EL pedestals make the job easier, quicker and affordable. Elevating, leveling and uniformly spacing your pavers, porcelain or other surface materials while protecting the substrates in waterproofed installations, PAVE-EL Pedestals are a game-changer.

The PAVE-EL pedestal is a grid-like structure composed of high-density polyethylene with integral spacer ribs located on the upper surface to ensure uniform joint spacing.

Incredibly versatile, PAVE-EL Pedestals are an excellent solution and can be used in a variety of projects and locations. When creating unique outdoor spaces, no space is any longer off-limits. The PAVE-EL elevated pedestal system can be used wherever you want to build a raised floor.

PAVE-EL Pedestals

PAVE-EL Pedestals are quick and easy to install, accurately. No lasers or special tools are required for installation, and spacer ribs ensure uniform joint width.

PAVE-EL Pedestals may be easily separated into halves or quarters to accommodate perimeter-edge and corner support, saving you money. Leveling plates compensate for unevenness of substrate or pavers and deck-to-drain slope.

PAVE-EL Pedestals can be installed directly on all types of flat roof surfaces – membrane, foam insulation, bitumen board etc., – and no adhesives or pads are necessary for installation.

PAVE-EL is available in four model sizes (4X, 5X, 6X, & 7X), each rated to handle various paver stone sizes and live loads.

Backed by an industry-leading 20-year warranty, Envirospec PAVE-EL Pedestals have been used for more than 40 years with NO product failures.

Protected roof membrane insulation manufacturers recommend PAVE-EL paver stone pedestals, + PAVE-EL pedestals are recognized and accepted for use by single-ply membrane manufacturers.

Benefits of the PAVE-EL Elevated Pedestal System

  • The perfect drainage built into the PAVE-EL Pedestal System prevents surfaces from becoming icy or slippery; rainwater drains away quickly, minimizing the risk of slips & falls. This immediate drainage also helps prevent shifting caused by freeze/thaw cycles, making the system perfect for around the pool or projects located in US states that experience sub-zero temperatures.
  • PAVE-EL Pedestal’s unique design allows stacking up to 6” to create limited height adjustment while maintaining maximum stability of your pavers.
  • Building on a slope? This adaptable system can raise your floor to any height you need and overcome incline issues quickly and effortlessly. The PAVE-EL system can correct up to a slope of 5-percent utilizing custom leveling plates, which can be stacked up to three plates of 1/8” each.
  • Solid and durable, PAVE-EL Pedestal Systems offer exceptional load-bearing strength. Pedestals provide easy access to whatever lays below, making inspections of hidden piping and electrical systems a breeze whenever you need access.
  • Weather-Resistant and maintenance-free, the PAVE-EL Pedestal system is self-cleaning and ultra-violet stabilized. It is unaffected by sunlight, ozone, humidity or water.

PAVE-EL Pedestal System Applications

AROUND THE POOL – Providing perfect drainage between and beneath your surface material, PAVE-EL Pedestals are ideal for pool decks. A raised pedestal system is also an excellent way to hide plumbing systems underneath, with easy access to them when needed.

RAISED FLOORS & PATIOS – Wherever you want to build a raised floor or patio, elevated pedestal systems are a quick and easy solution that will save you money.

BALCONIES – Our pedestal system is a proven solution for installing paver stones on condo and apartment house balconies exposed to the elements. PAVE-EL’s grid-like structure prevents water entrapment, freeze/thaw damage to pavers and membrane deterioration.

ROOFTOP DECKS – Forging a layer between your roof’s membrane and your patio surface, PAVE-EL pedestals not only cause no damage to your roof but even shield it from the elements and extend its lifespan. PAVE-EL Pedestals also prevent water entrapment, leading to freeze/thaw damage to pavers and membrane deterioration.

GREEN ROOFS & ROOFTOP GARDENS – PAVE-EL Pedestals can help you build an environmentally friendly, functional and aesthetically-pleasing roof garden or green roof. Providing superior protection of roof membranes, effective stormwater management and better insulation while maintaining the integrity of the roof components, PAVE-EL can help you transform unused areas above your living area into functional and attractive green space.

UNDER AC INSTALLATIONS – Whether on the ground or rooftop, PAVE-EL’s patented through-drainage and air vent design are ideal under air conditioning units. Air circulation and elevation of pavers reduce heat conductance, which keeps the membrane from expanding while maintaining the insulation thermal efficiency.
