FEATURES & BENEFITS

Why Iron Woods® Deck Tiles?


Cost-effective alternative to traditional decking

Looking for a more budget-friendly decking solution? The Iron Woods System provides a simple, high-value alternative.

Curb-to-curb appeal

Iron Woods Deck Tiles and Pedestal Systems provide a unique solution for the conversion of city streets (for pedestrian use only), Urban Boardwalks, StreetScapes, and Street Decks. The systems offer a temporary or permanent solution for a variety of functional design needs.

Smooth decking surface

Iron Woods® Ipe Deck Tiles are made with a smooth deck board surface to maximize shoe-to-surface area contact. Additionally, smooth decking is easier to clean and reduces fungi growth, which can further increase slip resistance.

Features


  • Cost-effective solution for both rooftop and conventional decks
  • Easy installation with pressure fit pin connection technology 
  • Class 1 durability rating ( 25+ years in-ground contact ) 
  • ASTM E84 Class A fire rating and Cal Fire Wildland Urban Interface approval
  • Engineered for minimum 100 psf live load 
  • Withstands wind uplift forces to 175mph as rated for central Dade County Florida
  • Smooth deck surface to maximize shoe surface area contact/minimize cleaning

Coefficient of Friction RatingsStandard Tile Dimensions
Coefficient of Friction Ratings
Coefficient of friction ratings
  • Static: Wet – .615FP
  • Dynamic:Wet – .43FP

Iron Woods® Ipe Deck Tiles are offered with a smooth deck board surface only. Grooved decking surfaces are not recommended. Why? Grooved surfaces reduce surface area contact with a shoe and are more difficult to clean supporting the collection of food and dirt which encourages fungi growth further reducing slip resistance.

*While Iron Woods Deck Tiles meet minimum International Building Code Compliance Standards, this is not a warranty of safety.

Pedestal Options


Iron Woods offers several pedestal options based on surface and elevation requirements. Iron Woods pedestals can be utilized for projects that require roof-to-deck surface tile elevation heights from 1-3/4” up to 36” and loads up to 2000lbs per pedestal.


Features


  • Increases performance and stability
  • Ease of installation
  • Pressure fit connection technology
  • Post installation elevation adjustment
  • Self-leveling technologies
  • Individual loading capacity exceeds 2200 lbs
  • Use with any surface
  • 100% post-industrial recycled material
  • Resistant to temperatures -22°F to +248° (-30°C to +120°C)
  • Resistant to acid and UV stable
  • ISO 9001/2008 and SA8000 certified
  • LEED compliant

For times when you need to follow the natural contour of the roof, choose EPDM Rubber Pedestal. The 1/4” fixed-height pedestal incorporates spacer tabs and pressure fit connector technology.

  • resistant to environmental deterioration
  • safe for direct contact with the roof surface.
  • sound-deadening qualities
  • creates a soft feel for walking
  • Easily separated into halves/quarters to make perimeter/corner placement a breeze

Not stackable. For low-elevation support requirements only.

When your project requires pedestals under 1-1/4”, choose Iron Woods® New Star Pedestal System. The Star Pedestal System incorporates pressure fit connection technology but not self–leveling technology.

  • Unique design and key slot provides post-installation elevation micro adjustment from 3/8” to 9/16”
  • Any required pedestal height can be met from 3/8” to 1-1/4” when combined with the 3/16” stackable Star B Base pedestals

Self-Leveling Screw Jack Pedestal System

Looking for a simple solution? Iron Woods® Self Leveling Pedestals with built-in slope compensation is right for you. Combining supporting base, extension, screw and head options, the system generates pedestal heights from 1.25” to 21.75” and slopes from 5/32’’ to ½’’ (0% to 5%) per foot of slope. Pedestals are placed on a 24” square grid.

  • Adjustment key allows for final micro adjustments after installation.
  • Screw block system indicates when units safely reach maximum height adjustment.
  • Pre-cut to facilitate perimeter and corner placement
  • Shims compensate for any minor variations in deck tile thickness. Shims are provided in 1/8” or 1/16” thicknesses.
  • Integrated anti-noise, bi-component soft rubber pad and pressure-fit connection technology
  • Mechanical connection between tiles and head seamlessly integrates all components of the system.

Conventional Deck Head
Conventional Deck Head

Elevations™ pedestal systems support conventional deck construction as well as deck tiles. The unique conventional deck head is designed to allow for the attachment of stringers. A simple application of Iron Woods 2×4 Ipe stringers (laid flat) and one of Iron Woods 5/4×4 Ipe decking options, provides a traditional deck appearance and increases the deck live load rating to 275 psf. As a ‘Best Practice’ Iron Woods recommends the use of 5/4×4 deck profiles (S4S E4E, Traditional Slotted) where ventilation is limited or poor.
