Fire Resistant Supports

Self-extinguishing supports for roof decks

In most pedestal supported roof deck installations, porcelain pavers or concrete pavers supported by regular polypropylene pedestal supports will meet the requirements of ASTM Test Method E108-11 “Standard Method of Fire Tests of Roof Coverings” which tests roofing products for spread of flame and the ability of the roof covering or roofing system to resist fire penetration from the exterior to the underside of the roof material under the conditions of exposure to flames.

In some densely populated urban regions however, there may be more severe requirements or regulations requiring pedestals to possess fire resistant properties. For such applications, the Eterno VO series of pedestals are produced with special compounds that not only prevent the spread of flames due to their self-extinguishing properties, but produce significantly less smoke fumes than other types of pedestal supports.
