58 Landscape Architect and Specifier News L A S N p ro d u c t p re v i e w HandyDeck Inc. Handydeck is a national supplier of porcelain pavers, Ipe structural tiles and pedestal systems for creating unique landscape environments. Our deck and paving products are used in the broadest range of commercial and residential applications including rooftops, balconies and patios; in hotels, apartments, hospitals, office buildings, restaurants, bars and other public spaces. Our structural porcelain pavers are increasingly being specified in large commercial projects due to their unique range of colors and styles, coupled with their outstanding technical characteristics. With their exceptional stain resistance, frost resistance, fade resistance, scratch resistance and low maintenance, together with their lighter weight (9lb/sq.ft.), fire resistance and ease of installation, HandyDeck porcelain pavers are replacing combustible wood decking and concrete pavers as the material of choice for rooftop decks in high density urban areas. The DeckWay porcelain plank system offers a practical, low maintenance alternative to natural wood planks for elevated decks. With this new and innovative decking system, structural porcelain planks 96" x 12" are laid over a framework of hollow steel beams, supported only by adjustable height pedestals. This enables perfectly horizontal decks to be constructed over sloping or uneven surfaces without the need to build extensive substructures. DeckWay planks are designed to closely simulate the appearance of natural wood, but won't crack, twist, decay, burn, or require regular, ongoing maintenance. The Xterra range of porcelain pavers incorporates all the benefits of porcelain - stain resistance, scuff resistance, fade resistance, freeze/thaw resistance - in an easy to lay paver suitable for all on-grade applications, including installation over existing concrete. Xterra pavers are available in a broad range of colors and styles including pavers resembling natural stone such as quartzite, travertine and basalt and simulated wood styles that blend naturally into modern landscape designs. Our Eterno range of adjustable height pedestals includes the 'SE' pedestals with their innovative self-leveling head that compensates for sloping substrates up to 5°, or the fixed head 'Maxi', ideal for elevated decks over 30" high. Both pedestals offer high load capacity, rapid installation and easy adjustment both before and after installation.
