ADJUSTABLE DECK PEDESTALS
 
** NOTE TO SPECIFIER ** Delete if not required.
 
A.
Basis of Design: Buzon DPH Series Screwjack Pedestals, as manufactured by Buzon.
 
** NOTE TO SPECIFIER ** Fill in blank below with custom material designation or delete line as applicable. Pedestals in polypropylene are not designed to support machines or equipment that may subject them to vibration. Custom options available such as transparent units for display or exhibition areas; contact manufacturer for details. Delete options for Pedestal Component Materials not required.
 
1.
Pedestal Component Materials: Talc-loaded polypropylene copolymer with minimum 78 percent recycled CCP material, 20 percent Talc, 2 percent UV, Master Batch black, 100 percent recyclable. Temperature Range: Suitable for use from minus 22 to 250 degrees F (minus 30 to 120 degrees C).
2.
Pedestal Component Materials: As scheduled and indicated on Drawings.
3.
Pedestal Component Materials: ______.
4.
Ancillary Application Materials:
a.
Accommodates metal grid systems, fiberglass grid systems, timber-style decking, square-shaped or rectangular-shaped stone, concrete, natural stone, terrazzo, ceramic, composite pavers as approved by manufacturer.
b.

5.
Compliance:
 
** NOTE TO SPECIFIER ** Loading Test Positions: The following loading data for pedestals with loads applied at various positions on the load bearing top surface of the pedestals. 1/1 is load evenly applied across entirety of the load- bearing surface; 1/2 is load applied to half of the load- bearing surface; 1/4 is load applied to one quarter of the load-bearing surface. The tests were carried out on a universal testing machine, type Instron 1185 n degrees H - 4573, with a capacity of 22480 lbf (100 kN), fitted with a 22480 lbf (100 kN) force transducer No. 2518 - 201. The loading speed was 0.39 in (10 mm) per min. The mean RUPTURE value, expressed in daN or en lbf, is the result of carrying out the test on 3 supports at different heights. If any option other than ' Standard, talc-loaded...' is selected above for ' Pedestal Component Materials' then delete data listed under ' Configuration' for ' Loading Data.'

** NOTE TO SPECIFIER ** Loading Test Positions: The following loading data for pedestals with loads applied at various positions on the load bearing top surface of the pedestals. 1/1 is load evenly applied across entirety of the load- bearing surface; 1/2 is load applied to half of the load- bearing surface; 1/4 is load applied to one quarter of the load-bearing surface. The tests were carried out on a universal testing machine, type Instron 1185 n degrees H - 4573, with a capacity of 22480 lbf (100 kN), fitted with a 22480 lbf (100 kN) force transducer No. 2518 - 201. The loading speed was 0.39 in (10 mm) per min. The mean RUPTURE value, expressed in daN or en lbf, is the result of carrying out the test on 3 supports at different heights.

** NOTE TO SPECIFIER ** Loading Test Positions: The following loading data for pedestals with loads applied at various positions on the load bearing top surface of the pedestals. 1/1 is load evenly applied across entirety of the load- bearing surface; 1/2 is load applied to half of the load- bearing surface; 1/4 is load applied to one quarter of the load-bearing surface. The tests were carried out on a universal testing machine, type Instron 1185 n degrees H - 4573, with a capacity of 22480 lbf (100 kN), fitted with a 22480 lbf (100 kN) force transducer No. 2518 - 201. The loading speed was 0.39 in (10 mm) per min. The mean RUPTURE value, expressed in daN or en lbf, is the result of carrying out the test on 3 supports at different heights. If any option other than ' Standard, talc-loaded...' is selected above for ' Pedestal Component Materials' then delete data listed under ' Configuration' for ' Loading Data.'

PART 3 EXECUTION
 
3.1
EXAMINATION AND PREPARATION
A.
Prepare substrates using the methods recommended by the manufacturer for achieving best result for the substrates under project conditions. Verify elevations, pedestal heights and layouts. Establish accurate and level lines and patterns.
1.
Substrate Requirements: Laid at ground or roof level over concrete, screed, EPDM, rubber, single ply or other built up roofing systems, or directly over insulation materials, dependent on insulation densities and overall loadings.
B.
Do not proceed with installation until substrates have been prepared using the methods recommended by the manufacturer and deviations from manufacturer's recommended tolerances are corrected. Commencement of installation constitutes acceptance of conditions.
C.
If preparation is the responsibility of another installer, notify Architect in writing of deviations from manufacturer's recommended installation tolerances and conditions.
3.2
INSTALLATION
A.
Install products in accordance with manufacturer's instructions.
1.
For Water Run-Off: Minimum slope of 2 percent.
2.
Larger Applications: Manufacturer recommends pedestals be pre-sorted and pre-set to proper elevation and placed in position prior to installation of decking.
3.
Limitations: Pedestal system shall not be used for decks over which wheeled or vibrating machinery are to be used.
4.
Point Loads: Such as planters, seating, furniture or heavy objects should be supported by additional pedestals.
B.
Perimeter Containment: Sections of decking not restrained by parapet or foundation wall must be ' boxed-in' and contained by manufacturer approved perimeter containment.
3.3
ADJUSTMENT AND PROTECTION
 
** NOTE TO SPECIFIER ** The following does not apply to applications involving applications with timber-style decking. Delete if not required.
 
A.
Adjustment: Eliminate rocking and uneven pavers; rotate pedestals for final adjustment after fully loaded.
