RAISED FLOOR TOOLS FOR ENHANCED SAFETY
While Kronos USA porcelain pavers are exceptionally durable, dense and rigid, they can nevertheless suffer damage due to mishandling, careless treatment or accidental impact.
If tools, heavy furniture or other hard objects are dropped on the pavers from a significant height, chips, scratches, surface damage and/or cracking and breakage may occur.
Shock CONTROL or Metal Tray should be installed and are highly recommended in all situations where hard objects could accidentally drop on the floor from a significant height, as well as in high traffic commercial installations or where deck heights are greater than 4”
SHOCK CONTROL® is a flexible, self-adhesive, fiberglass reinforced sheet for Porcelain Pavers. It is applied to the back of the paver to increase the mechanical strength of the finished raised floor. Its structure prevents pavers from collapsing.
This solution is primarily intended to hold together pieces of any broken paver and provide temporary support, should a person be standing on a paver at the time of breakage. It can easily be removed and replaced since the fragments do not leave the site and the entire paver do not lose its shape after its damage.
Metal trays are made of galvanized steel sheets with downturned edges of 3/8″ on the four sides, they are double folded to empower the underside of the 3/4” thick pavers and grant them an extra strength. The tile together with the metal tray becomes 3/16” wider on each side.
These protection trays increase the height of the tiles by only 3/16”
The tray fully supports a person’s weight including jumping up and down on the broken tile, and no deflection or bending of the perimeter of the steel tray was observed.
SPACER FOR SAND, GRASS OR GRAVEL
Ideal for laying ceramic pavers on pebble, sand, stabilized and gravel surfaces, to properly space and hold the flooring elements in place.
