A simple and cost-effective solution, the new low height aluminium joist and pedestal from Futurewood can transform a concrete alfresco into a modern entertainer’s deck.
With Futurewood’s new specially designed aluminium joist and low height adjustable pedestal sub frame you can now easily install a beautiful, low maintenance, CleverDeck composite timber deck over the top of any ugly old concrete patio or alfresco area.
The combination of the low height aluminium joist and pedestal allows for installations over rough concrete or old pavers down as low as 66mm. This way you can match the height of the outside deck to the internal floor and not have to have a step. If you have doors that open out over the patio, better still as traditional framing would be too high and would not allow the doors to open.
Futurewood’s low height subframe and decking solution comes with the option of different size adjustable pedestals so that you can cover a range of different heights and easily achieve a level deck or a slight fall away from the house.
This simple solution is very cost effective compared to a traditional decking subframe and where there is more height available you can substitute a 90mm x 45mm treated pine joist for the aluminium joist that will allow greater spans (less pedestals) and further cost savings. The decking component of your overall landscaping project will be more cost effective, and this added time and material saving can be used to help win the job or enhance other areas of the project.
Best of all the new adjustable height sub frame solution allows you to install one of Futurewood’s premium composite timber decking boards with three different decking types, two different board widths and 14 colours to choose from.
The choices are:
- CleverDeck Xtreme available in both 138mm wide and 185mm wide decking boards and up to 7 colours with a fine grain pattern finish.
- CleverDeck Original in a 138mm wide decking board, double sided in up to 5 colours with a coarse sanded finish.
- CleverDeck Eco-Pro in a 138mm wide decking board, single sided scalloped back board that is lighter in weight and cools faster, in 2 colours with a coarse sanded finish.
