Wood Tile Alternatives to Concrete Architectural Pavers

Wood Tiles

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.

Made from re-purposed wood from the furniture and other industries, wood tiles may be able to satisfy certain recycled content requirements. 

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.
