STANDARD

Paving slab pads

Top quality comes as standard with PLATTENFIX : even our highly affordable STANDARD base model features impressively thought-out functionality and is especially easy to lay.

Simple, quick and inexpensive: PLATTENFIX STANDARD-Pads are quick to lay even without any great prior knowledge of the craft. As the four fields can be split, you can easily break off edge and corner pieces without the need for lots of tools. If you need to level out differing heights, simply use additional compensating shims. The slabs are laid dry – completely without any bed of grit. 

Thus, with no great effort, you get an even, professional paved surface for balconies, terraces, pathways and even flat roofs. 

As the paving slabs are raised and do not touch the ground at all, rainwater is able to drain off unhindered and no frost damage occurs in the winter. PLATTENFIX pads are also incidentally made of 100-percent recycled soft PVC.

STANDARD-Pads have a support height of 10 mm and are available in joint widths of 4 and 6 mm. They can be supplied with a joint bar of 10 or 20 mm in height or with no joint bar. The inner labyrinth ensures good water drainage. All STANDARD-Pads can be split into 2 halves or 4 corners. However, they are also available as edge pieces. To compensate for minor unevenness STANDARD-Shims are available in a height of 2.6 mm.

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 dividedup in such a way that no slab that gets cut to size is smaller than 13 cm.

Please note that when laying STANDARD pads on an existing liner, you must add a barrier made of weather- and UV-resistant PE sheeting or glass fibre matting with a total weight of at least 200 g/m².
