The Deck Jak® is the main part of the system which is generally used independently of the other base components. the Deck Jak® is adjustable in height by rotating the lower half of the jak. Height adjustment can also be achieved with a screw driver through an insertion hole in the centre top of the Deck Jak® after the deck has been completed. The top section is self leveling to 2 degrees. The Deck Jak® is also available in various adjustable sizes from 20mm to 105mm. The underside of the base is smooth with no sharp edges that may damage the membrane.
The width of the base is also sufficient to spread the load of both the dead and live loads transferred onto the membrane through the Deck Jack. The base also incorporates water egress channels to allow any build up of water within the Deck Jack base to disperse.
Deck Jak® tile supports are injection-moulded, in NZ, and made from UV resistant polypropylene.
Deck Jack Strength (See our Point Load Test results here)
Deck Jack Durability (100% UV Stable) and
Deck Jack Versatility
These were some of the key design considerations, as was Recyclability.
Urban Building Products Ltd believe they have combined all of these points, managing to achieve a cost effective decking support solution to changes in the NZ Building Code E2/AS1 (view here)
Deck Jak® tile supports consist of two parts; a 102mm diameter base with an internal thread, and a top with an external thread and top plate with Spacer Fins (3mm Narrow Fin).
