What is VersiPave®

VersiPave® is a lightweight, high strength plastic paver support designed to eliminate the use of sand when laying pavers, resulting in reduced weight-bearing loads on building structures.

VersiPave® paver supports are used in the construction of roofs, plaza decks, balconies, pool surrounds, reflective pools and verandas.

VersiPave® incorporates integrated snap-on chocks, each adjustable in height from 24 mm to 105 mm. The height may be increased with the use of proprietary “extenders”.

VersiPave® allows the easy placement of most pavers such as granite, marble, precast concrete and porcelain where a well drained and level surface is required.

VersiPave® reduces sound transmission, increases heat insulation and allows unsightly services to be concealed within the cavity under the elevated platform allowing easy access to waterproofing membranes and services, when required.

* Any product warranty for VersiPave is voided where pavers are supported beyond 35 mm without the use of Elmich proprietary extenders.


VersiPave® paver supports are used to support pavers on:

  • Roof terraces
  • Pedestrian walkways
  • Roof gardens
  • Podium landscapes
  • Plaza decks
  • Balconies
  • Pool surrounds
  • Reflective pools
  • Commercial roof top
  • Greenroofs
  • Raised flooring
  • Patio areas

VersiPave® allows easy placement of pavers where
a well-drained and level surface is required

  • Integrated snap-on chocks that allow height adjustment on each quadrant
  • Chocks that are adjustable in 1mm increments from 24 mm to 34 mm
  • Extenders that allow total height extension to 105 mm
  • High load bearing capacity in excess of 2.5 tonnes/unit
  • The ability to compensate for slab slope in any direction
  • Eliminating the use of bedding sand
  • Allowing air ventilation and increased heat insulation
  • Minimising efflorescence and algae growth
  • Providing easy access to concealed services and waterproofing membranes for maintenance
  • Minimising sound transmission
  • Elimination of surface ponding and the need for surface drains
  • Levelled surfaces that ensure stability of outdoor furniture
  • Flush internal and external levels
  • Support US LEED™ credits

VersiPave® consists of a circular base divided into quadrants. Each pedestal has a 24 mm high raised rectangular support.

Where required, the height of each support is adjustable in increments of approximately 1 mm up to 34 mm high and is easily extended up to 105 mm using proprietary 20 mm and 40 mm VersiPave® Extenders.


  • Measure the total area to be paved to determine the number of pavers and VersiPave® required.
  • One VersiPave® unit is required for each paver to be supported.
  • Mark the intersection of the corners of each paver to be laid.
  • Pack up to leveling line with VersiPave® Extenders, if necessary.
  • Where free edges and corners are to be supported, break the VersiPave® along the quadrant line.
  • Place VersiPave® units on the positions marked out on the surface to be paved.
  • Place the pavers into place on each VersiPave® and simply adjust the chocks on the supports to ensure each paver is level.

VersiPave®are used for raised floor systems on balconies and other building structures
