COMPANY OVERVIEW

Bison leads the industry in providing customers with tested, innovative solutions for raised decks, including rooftop decks, plazas, terraces, pop-up-parksฉ and other architectural features requiring maintenance-free pedestals and low-maintenance deck surfaces.

Made & Stocked in the US
Bison manufactures and warehouse large quantities of products in Denver, CO. Bison also operates satellite warehouses in Southern California and Newark New Jersey.

Maintenance-Free Pedestals
In 1994, Bison introduced the Screwjack pedestal to the US market. Now manufactured in Denver, Colorado, Bison pedestals have patented features that improve performance and stability. Our gravity-based pedestals quickly install without harming waterproof membranes. Bison pedestals offer the largest bearing surface area for improved support of wood tiles, stone tiles and concrete pavers.

Low-Maintenance Hardwood Decks
In 2004 Bison introduced structural wood tiles made of Brazilian Ip๊ and Cumaru. The dense grain makes these hardwoods nearly impervious to insect and weather damage, providing a long-term, low-maintenance solution. The system is highly rated for fire, seismic and wind conditions.

Low-Maintenance Hardwood Decks
In 2009 Bison became FSCฎ-certified and now sources FSCฎ wood tiles. Bison executives travel to Brazil to ensure Ip๊ and Massaranduba hardwood used comes from forests implementing sustainable and FSCฎ-certified forestry practices that maintain the health of the rainforests and economic viability of local communities.

Customer Service
Bison continues to serve customers with the best and most trusted products in the industry. We take pride in delivering superior customer service through every stage of the selection, purchase and installation process. Please feel free to contact us with any questions.

Adjustable Deck Supports for Rooftop Deck Applications - Versadjust

The Versadjust, adjustable deck supports V-Series line reaches heights from 2 1/4" to 24", has a 1250 pound weight bearing capacity and contains built-in slope compensation from 0 - 1/2" per foot slope. Suitable for residential and commercial projects alike, Versadjust pedestals give maximum design flexibility for a variety of surface materials including wood deck tiles, concrete pavers and more. Wooden decking tiles supported by Bison Versadjust pedestals integrate seamlessly creating a roof deck system that is as simple as it is beautiful.

Deck Supports for Heavy Pavers image

Deck Supports for Heavy Pavers - Screwjack

Bison B Series ScrewJack pedestals are designed to support heavy pavers over any waterproofed structural surface. Each pedestal utilizes a patented threaded design, making the leveling process during installation a simple turn of the pedestal base. This allows contractors, designers and installers to accurately plan, precisely align, and uniformly install level decks with a combination of ease, speed and accuracy. Integrated spacer tabs ensure accurate spacing, lock the pavers in place, and allow water to drain.

The Bison Screwjack pedestal has a broad footprint that provides stability, is impervious to freeze thaw cycles, and offers a range of heights suited to almost any application. The Bison Screwjack pedestal (B-Series) reaches from 0 - 16' in height. Add bracing and couplers to reach up to 24' in height and the Weight Bearing Design Capacity is 1000 lbs/pedestal FS:2.

Pop-Up Parklets

Modular parklets can be constructed in parking spaces to create public space in urban areas.

Bison Innovative Products is an integral player in the push to reclaim car-designated zones in urban areas for pedestrian use. Bison products were among the first to debut in San Francisco and New York in programs like "Pavement to Parks" or parklets. These streetscapes can vary in size from a one-car parking space of about 150 sf to many spaces linked together, to a whole block or lane.

Installations include Bison Versadjust deck supports with wood tiles, ceramic, or concrete tile surfaces covering the existing pavement or parking space. Popular Bison accessories include attachment hardware, Bison aluminum planters, railing, and benches. Bison has the unique advantage of offering all the built elements required for a park installation. This creates a smooth installation as well as offering a consistent warranty for the entire system. Bison Innovative Products is currently the only company in North America to offer the full Pop-Up Parklet system.
