Wind Uplift

Wind Uplift

Wind Uplift Terrace and Balcony systems now come with mechanical fixings to secure your flooring in place and resist for complete peace of mind.

How do we mitigate for wind-uplift?

Rail balcony wind uplift

Rail Systems

A specially designed mechanical spacer-fixing slides into the rail, slots into grooved tiles, and is fastened to ‘clamp’ the entire surface in place.

Pedestal terrace wind uplift

Pedestal Systems

A mechanical wind-uplift fixing screws into the steel head of the pedestal which supports the paving layer to secure the pavers in place.

Aluminium balcony wind uplift

Decking Systems

Extra ballast is added underneath our aluminium decking system to increase its overall weight and keep the whole system in place.

vitrified composite® wind uplift

Vitrified Composite® Decking Systems

Specifically designed VC starter/end and VC T-clips are screwed onto the joists to clamp the boards down and secure the entire finish in place.

Want to futureproof your design?


An onsite survey by a specialist surveyor, completed before specifying terraces or balconies, will provide you with the necessary detailed report to secure any project against the risk of wind uplift.
