Rail Support System
¾” thick porcelain pavers used on elevated decks require support at each corner and at intervals no greater than 24” along any side. With pavers less than 16” wide, a rail system is generally preferred for support, due to lower pedestal cost and faster installation.
Eterno NM pedestals are placed over the substrate at 24” intervals in both directions.
Hollow steel rails are positioned on the head of the pedestals and locked in place with head caps.
Sliding head caps are placed along the steel rails to provide support and correct spacing at each corner of all porcelain planks not located on top of pedestal heads.
