Excellent hideaway for pipes and other systems
The interspace between the floor and the underlying membrane allows the passage of pipes and other systems, masking them but still allowing for easy inspection.
Excellent absorption of structural movements
Being independent, the paving and supports can absorb expansion and structural movements.
Significant weight reduction
With the elimination of the concrete screed, the raised floor allows a substantial reduction of the weight on the structure, which can be built at sustantially lower costs.
Floor always levelled and easily inspectable
The Pedestal system makes it possible to compensate for the small differences in height and slope of the laying surface. It also allows for the laying surface and any installed services to be accessed and maintained without damaging the paving.
In case of laying on waterproofing membrane, this can be easily inspected due to the absence of mechanical fixings between the covering and the supports.
Rapid water outflow
The small escape between one plate and the other allows the rapid drainage of water.
Better thermal insulation
The interspace between the paving and the underlying membrane favours a constant air passage. This helps extending the life of the waterproofing membrane, which is also protected from UV degradation, and improving thermal insulation.
Strong weight resistance
The sturdy structure of the support, which is given not only by the experience in formulating the compound but also by the continuous threading between base and screw, guarantees a strong, safe and long lasting product.
Better sound insulation
Thanks to the anti-slip and anti-noise bi-component head, Eterno Ivica's supports are the only ones in the world able to reduce the sound impact level up to 25 dB.
Speed of installation
The speed of installation ensures considerable advantages in the management of the building site, generating economic savings and increasing organisational effiency; in case of renovations, the reduced intervention time causes minor discomforts to people.
Environmental awereness and cleanliness
Everything is recyclable, both the flooring elements and the supports' substructure. At the end of the life of the building and / or floor, everything can be easily removed and recycled without any impact on the environment. The “dry” laying system does not require adhesives nor chemical products.
