Base for Timber Floor
Eco-paving base, 200 tonnes per m2, alternate rows
This base is a cheaper alternative to a full base, with fewer pavers required. The perimeter row is complete but every other row of inner pavers is omitted. The kit includes enough pavers whichever way your floor joists are orientated. The maximum unsupported span is around 385mm or 15", which is suitable for normal use. The full base is recommended for heavy duty use.
This durable base kit is an affordable alternative to slabs or concrete. Easy to install within a few minutes, these recycled polypropylene pavers simply click together with no fixings needed. Unlike slabs or concrete our eco-pavers are lightweight, easy to install and fully relocatable.
Our plastic paving is even stronger than our heavy duty base grids. In fact, our eco-paving is stronger, less brittle and more difficult to damage than concrete paving slabs. We recommend it for larger sheds and workshops, log cabins, commercial use and any other heavy duty applications. It is also recommended if the sub-base is concrete or a similar hard surface, because the pavers feature a flat and level underside.
Designed to spread weight, these heavy duty pavers are capable of supporting 200 tonnes per square metre. Each paver is 385mm x 385mm. First the ground is levelled and then the pavers are laid directly on the soil. The pavers can also be laid on grass, sand, gravel or concrete.
Where space permits the base is normally laid full size but if required in a tight location the base grids can be cut to size with no loss of structural integrity. The base is normally at least 2" or 50mm larger than your building.
