VersiJack® height and slope adjustable pedestals were used to support raised pavers on One Farrer Hotel’s newly renovated open terraces (landscape deck) at level 6. The open terraces consist of a stone wall fountain, a beautiful green lawn, an olympic-sized swimming pool, and a kids splash pad (outdoor games court).
Resistance to mould and algae render VersiJack® ideally suitable for the installation in constantly wet and damp environments. The installation of the VersiJack® and VersiCell® systems took around 3 months.
Kids Splash Pad (Outdoor Games Court)
A constant 4 mm gap between pavers maintained by Spacer Tabs mounted on the pedestal tops allows water issuing from the fountain spouts to seemingly disappear upon coming into contact with the paver surface, keeping areas beyond the boundaries of the raised paver area completely dry. The pump mechanism and required cabling for the pump are safely and unobstructively hidden in the void space beneath the raised pavers. A layer of porous EPDM rubber flooring was then installed onto the pavers.
Green Lawn (Artificial Turf)
VersiCell® was installed to provide drainage beneath the artificial turf.
What is VersiJack®
VersiJack® is a heavy-duty height and slope-adjustable pedestal designed for floor, deck, paver, beam, and bearer support. It can be used in the construction of roof terraces, pedestrian walkways, roof gardens, plaza decks, sun decks, balconies, pool surrounds, podium landscapes, and verandas. VersiJack® also can be used to create raised floors with most pavers including granite, marble, porcelain, and precast concrete. It is widely used to support timber and composite bearers under the decking and is excellent for creating reusable or temporary exhibition flooring.
