We have different possibilities for fixing and substructure solutions in order to offer you the perfect solution for your terrace dream, even on difficult grounds.
For classic laying, Salamander provides a fixed substructure, which is perfectly suited for surfaces which allow for solid fixing. For solid, full-sized grounds such as concrete, we recommend the slim 38 mm x 25 mm construction profile. For laying on solid, selective grounds, such as washed concrete slabs on a gravel bed, the 70mm x 38mm construction profile has been developed.
The elaborate aluminium substructure concept enables floating installation on surfaces that cannot be fixed to the ground. Any unevenness and height difference in the ground can be easily and quickly compensated with this flexible construction system.
Find out about both structures and choose the right solution for you:
FIXED INSTALLATION OF THE SUBSTRUCTURE
The Salamander substructure profiles, based on the Resysta® material mix that is well-known on the market, ensure long-term and reliable stability for your terrace. The proven system for standard installation on a solid ground has been produced in a specially developed production process and guarantees maximum quality and service life. It is absolutely weather-resistant and can be fixed on the ground with conventional screws and dowels. The fixation system with the T-clip that enables a 5mm joint distance, and the fixation system with the covered clip which enables narrow joint patterns with a distance of only 1 mm can be used to install the floor boards.
Application of the substructure on solid, full-sized grounds
Width x height of the construction profile: 38 mm x 25 mm
Application of the substructure on solid, selective grounds
Width x height of the construction profile: 70 mm x 38 mm
Example: approx. 8-10 kg washed concrete slabs on a gravel bed
FLOATING INSTALLATION WITH ALUMINIUM SUBSTRUCTURE
With the aluminium substructure system, which does not require any fixation on the ground, the installation of your dream terrace is also possible on uneven surfaces, in a few simple steps. Complex alignment is a thing of the past, as the substructure profiles are equipped with holding grooves and screw grooves, which enable the quick, precise and constantly flush positioning of all the system accessories. You can compensate unevenness in the ground with the height-adjustable lifts. The fixation system with the T-clip that enables a 5 mm joint distance, and the fixation system with the covered clip which enables narrow joint patterns with a distance of only 1 mm can be used to install the floor boards.
All items in the substructure system are made of aluminium or galvanised steel, and are therefore completely weather-resistant. Combined with the water-resistant Salamander boards, they make a high-performance duo!
Whether they are for steps or seating, you can use the aluminium substructure for various purposes.
