Wood Tile Alternatives to Concrete Architectural Pavers
Wood Tiles made from ipê or massaranduba are a great alternative to concrete architectural pavers in an Ultimate Assembly®, providing warmth and charm to any roof deck. These wood tiles are fabricated from very dense, durable hardwoods that exhibit excellent resistance to weather. The wood tiles can be periodically treated with oil to preserve and enhance their original color or left untreated to develop a natural, aged finish. They are available with a smooth surface or with a ribbed scuff resistant surface.
Ipê Wood Tiles are available in 24"x24" and 48"x24" dimensions, massaranduba is only available in 24"x24" size.
Made from re-purposed wood from the furniture and other industries, wood tiles may be able to satisfy certain recycled content requirements. Wood tiles fabricated from Forest Stewardship Council® (FSC) certified sustainable sources are also available.
This assembly requires supplemental stone ballast (as depicted) under the wood tiles to provide proper ballasting for the loose laid STYROFOAM insulation. The wood tiles are installed on Hydrotech Adjustable Pedestals that include a fastening kit to help lock them down for added security.
