Levato Mono Porcelain Paver
Levato Mono porcelain paver system has recently been installed on the new roof terrace at Bristol Airport East Terminal extension.
Circa 400m2 of the system was specified in order to conquer a number of challenges; covering EPDM membrane laid with multiple falls; to hide services and drainage gulleys but still have accessibility for future maintenance; cutting around the numerous stainless steel posts and glazed partition with accuracy for the shroud detail.
The finish the Architect specified was Teknotimber Dark oak – offering the Client an attractive, flexible and well designed raised flooring solution and with incredible technical properties; R11 slip rating; lightweight at just 45kgs per m2; Non porous surface and 1000kgs loading per 600x600x20mm paver to name but a few of the benefits. Our Self-levelling head / height adjustable pedestals were used on this project to facilitate a speedy installation and enabling the installers to adjust the pedestal heights to millimetre accuracy, thus creating a perfectly level deck.
Available in 40+ colours and finishes in both ultra-realistic timber and stone effect, by combining 3D printing and mould making technology to reproduce identical copies of natural materials and with up to 30 prints available for each paver range. Once laid, the eye is unable to discern any replicated pattern allowing for a completely natural looking surface. Recently specified for external dining areas at London Zoo, LIDL HQ Northfleet and the new Portico Terrace at Theatre Royal Drury Lane - where Levato Mono sandstone effect paver ranges were considered so similar to natural sandstone material that is was sanctioned for use on a Grade I listed building by English Heritage.
Used in conjunction with height adjustable fixed head or self- levelling pedestals or fixed height paver support pads, the Levato Mono system makes it possible to create perfectly level surfaces over uneven sub-surfaces. Ideal for installation over all waterproof membranes our support systems cover height ranges from 9mm to 550mm and incorporate a patented self-levelling slope correction facility with the convenience of height adjustment after the pavers are installed.
