Safety Priority

Make the most of your rooftop space with the proven factor of safety offered by Wausau Tile’s wind-uplift resistance system. We have the independent testing data to give you the peace of mind you want and the performance you need.

Rooftops have always presented an alluring opportunity as an added functional space, be it for al fresco dining, a chance to soak in the rays or any other variety of uses. But because many paving products are unable to withstand the duress of howling, powerful winds, rooftops often go to waste, especially in urban and coastal areas.

Savvy designers and builders know: With Wausau Tile’s innovative roof deck systems, there’s no reason to sacrifice rooftop space – or to worry about the security of our deck pavers. That’s because our Lok Down System is specifically designed to resist wind uplift on paver installations on balconies, plazas and promenades.

Tested at over 145 miles/hour

In fact, our Lok Down paver roof system is tested to withstand wind speeds of more than 145 miles per hour. In short: our systems outperform competitors in rigorous testing, including full-scale tests that simulate hurricane conditions, and we have the data to prove it. Our Lok Down System allows for precise alignment using Wausau Tile’s pavers, the only pavers with which the sophisticated system can be used.

Meanwhile, our Terra-Stand paver pedestal system helps you navigate the challenges of a pitched surface and is designed for roof deck applications, as well as on roof plazas, parking garages, roof terraces and more.

Whatever your project’s needs, rest assured that Wausau Tile’s systems can help you make the most out of any rooftop.
