Wind Uplift System

Wind Uplift System

Designed for use with our hidden fastening kit and pedestals

Commercial and residential rooftop spaces and green roofs have become increasingly popular for businesses and property management companies in recent years. These spaces allow organizations to enhance their buildings with sleek, modern outdoor areas without expanding their property.

However, many states have strict codes requiring that all rooftop pavers adhere to buildings using a tie-down system to prevent them from being loosened and thrown by high winds or hurricanes. Though these regulations were put into place for good reason, they can make it challenging to find rooftop paver pedestal systems that are up to code.

Now, you can obtain a high-performance wind uplift system that sets the standard for quality and reliability at Nitterhouse Masonry Products. Our wind-resistant pavers are highly durable. You can count on them to remain secure amid even the harshest winds while exuding a clean, stylish look that will make your property stand out.

Our Wind Uplift Connection Pavers

Wind uplift pavers are arranged on rooftops, balconies or other elevated exterior surfaces. Our wind uplift resistance pavers are optimized to withstand high wind movement and other severe outdoor conditions while remaining securely in place.

Wind Uplift Connection pavers from Nitterhouse Masonry Products are designed to provide optimal anchorage and durability for any rooftop space using our top-of-the-line tie-down system. Our pavers are available in over 30 eye-catching colors and seven sizes, so you can purchase pavers individualized to your needs. Unlike other wind uplift systems, our specialized design incorporates hidden connections that are concealed from onlookers, meaning they won’t interfere with the architect’s design.

The Nitterhouse Wind Uplift Connection system comprises three primary parts, including:

  • Pavers: This solution comes equipped with hydraulic-pressed pavers for your roof. Our wind uplift system works with all Nitterhouse architectural pavers and Camina paving stones.
  • Fastening kit: Our paver fastening kit allows users to screw pavers down tightly and securely using our discreet tie-down system.
  • Pedestal: Our wind-resistant pedestals are made up of three parts — a polypropylene and rubber deck paver head with adjustable threading, a height extension collar and a wide supporting base, all built from recyclable materials.

How It Works

Nitterhouse’s Wind Uplift Connection pavers have an innovative slot in each corner allowing for a special washer and finishing screw to be inserted. After all pavers are placed, the Nitterhouse tie-down system is undetectably screwed into the corresponding reinforced top of the Nitterhouse pedestal to securely lock down the pavers ensuring a safe, secure and level surface.

Designed for use with our hidden fastening kit and pedestals, Nitterhouse pavers with Wind Uplift Connection have all of the following capabilities:

  • Wind uplift resistance: 350 psf (fully adhered systems).
  • Compression strength: Avg 8500 psi.
  • Water absorption: Less than 5% (ASTM C140).

The Benefits of Wind Uplift Pavers

As more and more businesses and residencies invest in rooftop patios, wind lift resistance pavers are becoming a go-to method for installation. Wind-resistant pavers and pedestals come with numerous advantages that will optimize your elevated area, including:

  • Secure attachment: Wind uplift systems offer a level of strength and stability you can’t get from standard pavers. These components are designed to stay fastened securely in place, combating the effects of high winds, inclement weather conditions and even hurricanes.
  • Reduced safety risks: When your rooftop pavers remain firmly attached to your roof, you minimize the risks of safety hazards and liabilities resulting from thrown tiles that could harm property and people.
  • Cost savings: Pedestals for wind uplift prevent pavers from being picked up by the wind, reducing the need for costly repairs and maintenance.
  • Easy installation: Rooftop paver systems are quick and easy to install, saving your company time and money.
  • Water damage prevention: Due to their water-resistant properties, wind uplift pavers prevent your roof from enduring water damage during even the harshest storms.
  • Aesthetic appeal: One of the primary benefits of installing rooftop pedestals and pavers onto your building is visual appeal. With a stunning, modern rooftop space, you can attract visitors, add higher resale value to your building and even increase your business’s credibility and professionalism.
  • Peace of mind: When your rooftop space is durable and secure, you can relax knowing that you’re protected during even the most inclement weather conditions.
