“less weight Less weight on floors, roofs and balconies, thanks to elimination of the final layer of screed and adhesive.
“Frostproof Frostproof, the system absorbs thermal expansion of the screed, direct cause of failures of outdoor pavings installed by the traditional method.
“thermal insulation The cavity between floor and screed provides improved thermal insulation.
“soundproofing Enhances soundproofing.
“hidden but inspectable pipes Pipes are concealed but easily inspected.
“fast installation Fast installation.

RAISED INSTALLATION PEDESTALS

The range of pedestals for floating installation offered by Kronos comprises heights from 8 millimetres up to more than 1 metre. These pedestals are suitable for all types of substrate and are ideal for the construction of safe, stable, flat raised floors with every detail finished to perfection. They are the first pedestals on the market to be specifically designed for the raised installation of porcelain stoneware, and the only ones to carry a 5-year warranty against manufacturing defects. They are made from exclusive plastics, enriched with elastane for greater elasticity, torsional strength and resistance to thermal expansion, superior to the other similar products on the market.

RAISED INSTALLATION WITH METAL SUBSTRUCTURE

Raised floor tiles
Outdoor pavings made from ceramic plank tiles are beautiful, elegant and striking, and they are easy to construct with the aid of the raised installation system with metal joist substructure.

Area+ -Metal Frame is the exclusive Kronos system that enables the raised installation even of narrow planks and mixed sizes.

A system comprising:

  • Kronos 2 cm porcelain stoneware;
  • Exclusive, patented pedestal: Queen Joist;
  • Galvanised Steel or Aluminium Joists.

EXCLUSIVE PEDESTAL FOR RAISED FLOOR SYSTEM: QUEEN JOIST

The special head designed to support the aluminium joist ensures excellent results in terms of safety, rapid installation and paving surface stability. The aluminium joints fit naturally into the heads of the pedestals thanks to the fins parallel to the joist direction, which secure them easily and firmly.

h 144 – 254 mm

The special 4-way pedestal head allows the joist to be inserted horizontally or vertically, thus also enabling the creation of cross-linked substructures. Installation of the cross-linked substructure is recommended whenever it is necessary to create a reinforced paving. This type of structure stiffens and reinforces the paving, increasing its static and dynamic load resistance.

WIND-BRACING SYSTEM FOR RAISED FLOORS

Kronos Ceramiche has performed various studies and tests to analyse the effects of wind on raised pavings in the wind tunnel of the FIU International Hurricane Research Center in Florida.

The system we have developed, using the Area+ System, helps to produce a safe paving, mechanically secured by a clip to the substructure, which is in turn mechanically connected to the pedestal.

PEDESTAL ACCESSORIES

QUEEN PLUS

This is an additional red component of 7 mm which converts the Queen and Queen Joist pedestals from fixed to self-levelling type, with tilting head. It compensates for substrate inclines of up to 5%.

QUEEN TOWER

Use of the T (23 mm) or TL (100 mm) extension allows all heights required to be reached in addition to the chosen pedestal. It enables greater flexibility for faster, safer installation and also overcomes various problems which may arise from measurements not foreseen in the design phase.

RAISED FLOOR SYSTEM ACCESSORIES FOR ENHANCED SAFETY

If the paving is intended to take heavy loads or for commercial purposes and for rises of over 20 cm in general, the application of additional safety systems is highly recommended to reduce the risk of injury in the event of tile failure.

SHOCK CONTROL 2.0

SHOCK CONTROL® is a protective membrane for tiles. It is applied to the back of the tile to increase the mechanical strength of the finished paving. Its structure prevents slabs from collapsing.

METAL TRAY

Galvanised sheet steel tray with downturned edges on all four sizes, bent in half for increased strength in the underside of a 2 cm paver. The tray is able to support the full weight of a person, even if they jump on a broken tile, and no bending or sagging of the edge of the steel tray has been observed.
