Evolutiondeck Inc. is pleased to announce that their SPX structural panels have been certified by Progressive Engineering Inc. to be compliant to the IBC and IRC building codes for use on residential and commercial projects. The code compliance report is available online as PER-15098. Paverdeck, based on the SPX technology, is the leading galvanised steel structure for decks and floors, and the only full diaphragm unibody structure on the market.
Paverdeck is maintenance-free, fireproof, has a long lifespan, light weight, and superior strength – which make it an ideal investment for residential decks, commercial patios, rooftop terraces, docks, storm water management, and other projects. This certification helps homeowners, contractors, and the architectural communities realize the full value of the Paverdeck structural panel in their construction investments. Click for Code Report
That is why customers choose the EDECK structure. History has shown us that steel and stone are lasting materials able to perform under the effects of the sun and weather. It only makes sense to combine them in creating a lasting outdoor living space. EDECK is the only deck structure certified by Underwriter’s Laboratory for USA and Canada.
We have come to expect that deck structures have a limited lifespan of 10-15 years, and would shrink, crack, warp, and decay. Until EDECK, there was really no other option. The EDECK galvanized steel structure is similar to automotive uni-body design – our patented structure is the only integrated joist diaphragm system available that provides a complete structural surface. Made from high strength galvanized steel, once assembled it is virtually impossible to fail. We do not rely on any organic coatings or chemicals to achieve its lifespan – the zinc galvanizing ensures decades of enjoyment and safety. This technology is available across North America at an affordable price that competes with traditional methods. Surface finish methods and materials are driven by your own tastes and budget.
When combined with stone, concrete or porcelain surface finishes; the system provides a long lasting outdoor living space – free from maintenance demands, and risks of fire, insects, and decay.
The galvanized steel deck is designed to last 60 years without maintenance. Concrete pavers can last well over 40 years and stone pavers can last even longer. Pavers last longer on a PAVERDECK™ because they see little wear, are lifted off the ground, and are not susceptible to moisture pickup from the ground.
A Paverdeck patio deck can be installed on deck pads or with frost footings. Unlike a traditional patio, a Paverdeck patio resists heaving and movement of pavers.
A Paverdeck standard level deck can be installed on deck pads or with frost footings. The deck can be installed on ledger attached to your home, or can be free floating.
Unlike a traditional deck, the Paverdeck structure can span 12-feet from the house to the first beam, providing an unobstructed space beneath. Add this to the 39-inch cantilever capability, and you can have a 14-ft elevated deck with only one supporting beam.
The nesting nature of the deck provides a complete structural subfloor that has been tested to over 560 lbs per square foot without collapsing - greatly surpassing the limits of the building code.
Unlike other steel deck systems that rely on a paint layer for protection, we add 50% more zinc galvanizing for longer corrosion protection than our competition and the building codes require.
Unlike other deck systems that deteriorate over time and require constant maintenance costs, the stability and lifetime of our system makes it the best invesment in your home.
Our structure is backed by a 30-year structural warranty.
