Standing on the balcony overlooking a secluded garden in the heart of leafy Kingswood, Surrey enjoying one of life’s quieter moments is the ideal way to relax free from the hustle and bustle of modern city life. A tranquil oasis for moments of quiet contemplation.
Creating someone’s perfect space is something we have thought long and hard about. Our business is about strong, smart, support. Literally. That was the case on a prestigious 5-bedroom residential development for Atelier Developments where our pedestal support solutions allowed the architect to create an elevated paving support surface to make the transition from the house to the garden a seamless one.
The drop in height from house to back garden in days gone by would have proved a major challenge, with expensive groundwork to overcome uneven and sloping ground.
An aesthetic paving design would normally present a challenge on more conventional installations but the client was keen to achieve an attractive, random paving solution to enhance the visual impact.
Our RynoPaveSupport complete paving support grating system was identified as the perfect solution for this challenge. The supporting pedestals provided the foundation for Ryno’s aluminium joists which created a robust platform for our polycarbonate grates, specially constructed to provide smart, strong support for all types of calibrated paving systems.
The complete system, which gives scope to achieve far more intricate designs and styles, is much lighter to handle than conventional building materials. This allows a much faster build time, with minimal site disruption. The pre-laid aluminium joist frame and pedestals enabled the grates to support random sized, in this case, sandstone paving over a sealed membrane.
With next day delivery and an installation team on site to start work immediately, the balcony was completed in a matter of days. The integrity and flexibility of the system was recognised as a cost effective solution while its versatility delivered a consistent and beautiful multi-level surface comprising balcony and steps to the garden.
The RynoPaveSupport complete paving and grating support system can transform any outdoor area where sloping or uneven ground is a challenge and where additional features such as plumbing and electrical services are required to support hot tubs, lighting, plants and eye-catching water features.
In short, a smart, strong, support solution for landscape designers and architects.
