Rail Support System

Pedestal supported steel rail system for elevated decks

The Eterno/Kronos rail support system is designed to provide a secure, level and stable support where porcelain pavers less than 16″ wide are  used in the construction of elevated deck surfaces, either on rooftops or at ground level.

Compared with a conventional stand-alone pedestal support system, the  Eterno/Kronos rail system offers a number of advantages, particularly with narrower plank style pavers.

  • increased stability
  • greater resistance to sideways movement of pavers
  • more flexibility to use pavers of different widths and lengths
  • less pedestals required with narrower plank pavers
  • can avoid the need for perimeter containment

Rail system with ‘Noce’ 12″ x 48″ porcelain pavers

The Eterno/Kronos rail system is designed for maximum simplicity and ease of installation – just three basic components are used.

Galvanized steel support rails
Tubular steel is used to provide the basic support due to its high load capacity,  excellent resistance to flexing and comparatively low cost. The rails are supplied in 8′ long sections for ease of transport.

Eterno NM adjustable pedestals with rail support heads
Upper rail support heads are constructed with two downward facing prongs which hold the rail tightly on both sides and clip into the lower rail support head, preventing any movement of the rail on the pedestal.

The SBR rubber surface on the heads minimizes noise transmission through the pedestals.

Upper rail mounted sliding heads
The upper rail heads are designed to slide freely along the rail, enabling pavers of any width to be installed, with the upright tabs providing accurate and consistent spacing between the pavers.

The heads incorporate the same SBR rubber surface as the lower rail heads, ensuring superior sound absorption, shock resistance and slip resistance.
