BUZON PEDESTALS APPROVED SOLUTION FOR DISABILITY ACCESS AND ARE FIRE RATED
Civil and General Distributors distributes the award-winning Buzon Pedestals for the design and construction of raised flooring. This product appeals to architects, landscapers and builders because it is easy to install and provides easy access for maintenance.
Buzon Pedestals are used with pavers, timber decking and steel or FRP grating to create raised floors. For example, Buzon Pedestals are great on balconies, terraces, green roofs, temporary floors, and water features. These pedestals accommodate heights from 17mm to 1070mm and are capable of supporting up to 1000kg. In addition, they conceal services and offer easy access for maintenance of waterproof membranes.
The Buzon Original Screwjack Pedestal System now provides a compliant solution for access by people with a disability. This is a requirement of the Design for Access and Mobility Standard (AS-1428.1)-2009. The Buzon pedestal system is complaint when used in conjunction with a compliant paving or flooring surface. This is great news as the design of buildings for “age in place” demands all doorways and access areas are zero threshold with a smooth transition to satisfy AS1428. With the Buzon Pedestals having millimetric adjustments they easily achieve the required zero threshold (no step) outcome.
We are also pleased to advise that the Buzon Pedestals have successfully passed the Simultaneous Determination of Ignitability, Flame Propagation, Heat Release and Smoke Release fire test as required by AS1530.3 – 1999. This provides piece of mind for Architects, Designers and Builders looking to utilise the Buzon Pedestals in their projects.
