Keeping the conventional commercial or residential elevated decking in place in high-wind conditions is an increasing necessity in areas other than hurricane zones. Fortunately Outdoor Floor System® has the best solution for maximum stability with a thin gauge porcelain or natural stone surface in these extreme uplift tension load conditions.
The GRATEDEX® PK01 System brings all of the best components together to achieve super strong attachment to the joist framing and maximum durable glue-bond strength of the tile to the underlayment. This is all made possible with a proprietary design. The GX01 Deck Plank fiber reinforced design, GX02 fastener integration, PT04 3 1/2” Stainless Steel screw and GX08 Hold-Tite® adhesive come together to deliver a 245 lb/ft2 (psf) load resistance over the entire deck without failure. In a wind conversion, this would be equal to a 309.36 mph wind load.
309.36 MPH HIGH WIND UPLIFT RESISTANCE: UL 1897
