VersiJack®

What is VersiJack®

VersiJack® is a heavy duty screw jack pedestal designed for floor, deck, paver, beam and bearer support.

VersiJack is used in the construction of roof terraces, pedestrian walkways, roof gardens, plaza decks, sun decks, balconies, pool surrounds, podium landscapes and verandas.

VersiJack® screwjack pedestal is adjustable in height from 14 mm to 1021 mm, with the use of proprietary “extenders”. Optional slope corrector can adjust slopes up to 5%.

VersiJack® reduces sound transmission, increases heat insulation and allows unsightly services to be concealed within the cavity under the elevated platform allowing easy access, when required.

VersiJack® can be used to create raised floors with most pavers including granite, marble, porcelain and precast concrete.  They are also widely used to support timber and composite bearers under decking.

VersiJack® is excellent for creating reusable or temporary exhibition flooring.

Elmich has recently launched a new Concealed Paver Retainer called (CPR)®. CPR is used in cases where wind uplift is a going to be problematic, especially in high-rise apartments. CPR attaches to the top of the VersiJack and the paver is glued to the device, This enables you to still have access to the waterproofing membrane.

  • Measure the total area to be paved to determine the number of pavers or beams required. One VersiJack® screwjack pedestal is required for every paver or for approximately each linear metre of beam to be supported.
  • Use sight or laser lines to mark the intersections of the corners of each paver to be laid.
  • Adjust the 0-5% inclinator to compensate for any fall in the slab.
  • Use 1-2 mm VersiJack® rubber shims if required to ensure each paver is level.
  • Position VersiJack® screwjack pedestals without tabs where edges and corners are to be supported. If necessary, saw along marked score lines on the bottom of the units so that units may be positioned along wall edges or in corners.
  • Commence paving by positioning the first paver in a corner and subsequent pavers along a wall edge.
  • Place the pavers into place on each VersiJack® screwjack pedestal and simply adjust either up or down to ensure each paver is level.
  • Position VersiJack® screwjack pedestals under beams and adjust units either up or down. Screw the beam into the eyelet in the top of the VersiJack® or tie the beam to the screwjack unit to ensure stable floor support.

VersiJack® screwjack pedestals are a more economical and convenient alternative to brick piers and metal stirrups for decking support. Manufactured from mould and algae resistant polypropylene, VersiJack® deck supports are stable, maintenance-free and easy to install. In addition to their use in decking support systems, they can also be utilised as paving supports, bearer supports and beam supports in a wide variety of raised floor applications. Because there is no need to use bedding sand when using our screwjack pedestals as adjustable floor supports, they enable you to significantly reduce installation time and cost for both residential and commercial projects.

Adaptable Decking and Paver Support System

When VersiJack® is used with proprietary extenders, the height of each screwjack pedestal can be adjusted upto 1021 mm. This means that it is possible to use them to erect level flooring, decking and pavers on gradients of up to 5%, with our optional slope correctors and proprietary extenders. And because they feature a bearer support fastener, they can safely be used to support flooring, decking and paving over a waterproof membrane. Whether you are looking for a decking pedestal, adjustable paving support or an adjustable beam support system, you will find our screwjack pedestals are perfect for your needs.

FAQs

VersiJack® decking pedestals are flexible decking supports in the form of screwjack pedestals, which can be adjusted in height to compensate for sloping surfaces. Designed by our experienced team of construction industry experts, VersiJack® adjustable deck supports are built to last and can be used in all types of environments.

Each screwjack pedestal is manufactured from algae and mould resistant recycled polypropylene, making them ideal for use in all types of indoor and outdoor raised flooring applications. Polypropylene is a low-density thermoplastic polymer, which means that even though it is very strong, it is much lighter than most other decking and floor support alternatives. It is tough, flexible and economical to manufacture.

As a leading manufacturer of urban landscaping solutions to the construction industry in NSW and across Australia, you can trust Elmich to supply you with products that are fit for purpose and designed to be used in demanding environments. Whether you need pedestals to support a new deck or you are looking for an under-floor adjustable bearer support solution that will not cause any damage to waterproof membranes, VersiJack® screwjack pedestals will meet all of your needs at a competitive price.

Because VersiJacks weigh considerably less than brick piers and are height adjustable, decking pedestal systems enable contractors to install decks on surfaces that might otherwise be unsuitable. No penetrations in the waterproofing membrane is required, VersiJack® are designed to sit loose over the waterproofing membrane without damaging the membrane. Whether used to support decking or under raised paving, you will find that VersiJack® screwjack pedestals allow you to complete installations more quickly than would be the case when using alternative support solutions.
