Looking up at the underside of a finished Silca System deck you can really see how much support is supplied to the tile/paver.
.
The Silca Grate’s cells are a max. of 50mm diameter, so you can be assured that tile/paver has plenty of purchase without needing to span far at all.
.
This results in a solid feel and sound underfoot, and gives you piece of mind that your decking element and finished surface are supported well.

20mm Natural Granite, flamed for non-slip exterior use, is a perfect finish for over a Silca System Deck. Beautiful and incredibly long lasting.

Did you know that Silca System Grates are manufactured from 100% Recycled plastics!? ♻️
Ground and reprocessed to pallet form then injection moulded in a 750ton press! All processes undertaken to achieve as little environmental impact and as minimal carbon footprint as possible.

By using Silca System on your deck you are:
1) helping reduce the sea of plastic waste around the planet
2) reducing your own carbon footprint, especially during construction
3) achieving a permeable patio surface not otherwise achieved with concrete slab, hence allowing rainwater to penetrate and replenish the ground bellow and not be redirected to storm water
4) NOT supporting the Deforestation of rainforests which supply common hardwood decking such as kwila!
4) helping to plant more trees to feed the bees @portwaikatohoney 🐝 and to keep the planet green 🌿 We plant a tree for every sqm sold

Remember team, just because it is made from recycled plastic, it does not mean it is weak or flexible!
Silca Grates are actually super super rigid and can take over 5ton spanned and over 68ton compression test!! 💪🏼

SilcaGrate enables you to easily install heavy-duty materials like natural stone, concrete or brick pavers, which eliminates the expense of having to seal and stain traditional wood decking boards.
.
Here, flagstone pavers installed with a geo textile cloth and polymeric sand finish to help lock everything together for that solid patio feel
.
This leaves a more traditional style of patio compared to the slick porcelain with gaps type application of our other installs.

A grouted and sealed finish is also achievable with Silca System.
.
1) Install Silca Grates over deck structure as per usual (x6 screws per grate)

2) Cover grate surface with a geo textile cloth or similar

3) Lay down pavers with gaps using spacers or shims
(if you still wish to spot glue fix, areas can simply be cut from the cloth to allow adhesive direct between tile and grates, some heavier type pavers or flagstones do not require adhesive)

4) Apply a Flexible Grout or a Polymeric paving sand per manufacturers specifications

Done!

Remember when building your deck structure to have suitable fall as to let rain water drain from the finished surface.
Collection of that water may be required e.g. edge guttering, depending on the size and situation of your patio/deck.

This application suits a more solid 40mm + type paver such as concrete or natural stone, rather than tiles.
It allows more edge surface area for the grout to purchase so you can achieve that solid patio feel and be assured it will stand the test of time.

As the finished surface is sealed, this application is not classed as a permeable surface.
