Installation Specifications: 

INSTALLATION:

Installation requirements depend upon individual project needs. Tectura Designs, Inc. will recommend tools and techniques; however, contractors should have experience in the installation of similar systems. Grid layout and pattern are determined by the architect or installing contractor. Typical installations begin by determining a starting point based on pattern layout. Next, measurements are taken and chalk lines placed. Terra-Stands or Waffle Reducers are then placed at the intersections of the chalk line and adjusted as required. A Terra-Tab is placed on top of adjusted unit. Terra-Pavers are then set on Terra-Tabs. Should repair to the sub-structure be needed, Terra-Pavers are easily removed and replaced with the Blok Handle or Big-Blok Handle.

Terra-Stand and other components are delivered factory direct with Terra-Pavers. Prices quoted upon request.
