Following installation of a roof terrace system, access to the space below will still be required for rooftop maintenance and repairs. However, features such as heavy planters and planter systems can often be located in areas that make access difficult.
To minimise disruption, roof terrace features should ideally be located away from these areas, allowing for clear access points through walkways and other areas covered by decking or tiles.
The Raaft terrace system is designed to hold our decking and tile products securely in place using only the framework of the terrace system and gravity. For the most part, this will be sufficient, but if the terrace is in a location exposed to high or gusting winds, wind uplift may potentially be a problem.
To overcome this we have developed our design-protected anti-uplift clip system. Available in tough nylon or stainless steel, these clips unobtrusively align with a groove cut into the edges of all our composite and porcelain decking and tile products, using spring pressure to hold the deck or tile firmly in the frame.
Independently tested, they meet BS EN 1991-1-4: 2005 + + A1:2010 Eurocode 1 regulations and so will resist all typical UK wind conditions.
Even if wind uplift isn’t an issue, Raaft clips will ensure a stable, solid terrace surface that exudes permanence and quality yet is easily removed for servicing and maintenance access.
Terrafina, Atria and Farrino is available in a variety aesthetically-pleasing colours, effects and finishes. The terrace system is further complemented by a range of beautiful steel planters and exciting roof-top furniture.
Quick to install
The Raaft support structure is quick and easy to install without the need for specialist tools. A series of innovative clips hold the surfaces in place and can be quickly removed to allow for access and essential maintenance.
Farrino Porcelain Decking and Fire-rated Pedestals and Joists (all core components in the fire-rated system) through to the planters are made from Class A fire-rated materials.
Atria and Farrino Porcelain is a safe, non-slip terrace. It has a slip resistance of R11 when tested to DIN 51130 (the Ramp Test) and Class 3 when tested to UNE-ENV 12633: 2003 (the Pendulum Test).
