MULTI / MULTI+PLUS

Paving slab pads

Here come our all-rounders: MULTI and MULTI+PLUS can be used in a wide variety of ways – and even overcome height differences of up to 24.5 cm with millimetre-precision.

Ideal for spacious, even surfaces: The two inexpensive PLATTENFIX slab support pads are extremely durable and easy to lay. For edges and corner areas they can easily be split into halves or quarters. 

As they can be stacked up to seven high, they can even level out height differences of up to 24.5 centimetres with no problem. 

You can also combine MULTI pads with VARIO pads in order to level out height differences more precisely still. Thanks to their large support area and great durability, MULTI pads are also ideal for use with ceramic slabs.

Advantages

 
  • Can be split (under certain conditions, see p. 53)
  • Can be stacked
  • Large support area
  • To bridge big heights, MULTI and MULTI+PLUS can be combined with VARIO and the MAXI shim
  • Environmentally compatible
  • No connection with the surface below
  • Very durable
  • Good air circulation underneath
  • Quick access to liners,
  • supply lines and cable ducts
  • Good water drainage
  • Even pattern of joints
  • No raised slabs due to ice
  • You can stack up to a total of seven MULTI and/or MULTI+PLUS pads on top of each other
  • Facilitate simple laying of slabs
  • Ideal for laying ceramic slabs thanks to their low joint bars and large diameter
  • Low weight load on roof surface, as no grit is needed
  • Even support height prevents any wobbly slabs
  • Damaged slabs can be replaced at any time
 

Laying instructions

Laying slabs using PLATTENFIX pads is always done following the same principle, which we show you on this page. On the following pages we then respectively look at the different PLATTENFIX pads.

We recommend that first of all, using suitable tools and equipment, you sound out the maximum top edges of the paving so that you can see what height difference needs to be bridged using additional shims. 

You should then look for a crossways and lengthways side in order to establish a right angle for starting to lay the slabs. We recommend utilising two outer edges (eaves/parapets or similar) in order to begin laying whole slabs, extending out from those edges, out of the corner within the right angle.

AThe slabs to be laid always have one corner lying on a quarter segment of paving pad; at the outer edges Bhalf pads are fitted so that here too the slabs are lying on a quarter piece. CQuarter pieces are laid in the corners. 

By the way: the STANDARD and MAXI pads can be easily cut in half or into quarters using a craft knife. For VARIO and MULTI pads use wire cutters. For large-format slabs that have to be centrally supported, you can fit STANDARD and MAXI with no joint bar.

D The area to be paved should be divided up in such a way that no slab that gets cut to size is smaller than 19 cm.

The slabs can be laid without any protective layers between waterproof seal and pedestal pads.
