The MATAVERDE® EUROTEC® Deck System offers the optimum solution for the design and construction of rooftop or patio top deck structures. With the 'straight and true', load-bearing Eurotec Aluminum System Profile™, all your aluminum deck joists are strong and uniform, with no possibility of rotting, splitting, cracking, warping or checking. The Eurotec  pedestals, with their ClickFoot™ attachment, allow for simpler designs and ease of installation. Choose from any Mataverde Premium Hardwood Decking species to complete your deck project.

Over the years, many architects, designers, construction professionals and property owners have asked us about rooftop decking systems using full size decking boards.  In many cases we were able to offer them design solutions using 'sleepers', which are an effective way to construct a low clearance deck on balconies and a limited number of rooftop structures.

 
 

THE MATAVERDE® EUROTEC® DECK SYSTEM OPENS UP A WHOLE NEW WORLD OF DESIGN AND CONSTRUCTION POSSIBILITIES.

If you are designing and building a new structure, or are considering building a rooftop deck, balcony deck or over an existing patio, the MATAVERDE® EUROTEC® Deck System offers you a myriad of new looks and design opportunities.  Here are a few key benefits of this innovative deck system:
  • Ability to use full size decking boards for cleaner lines without the "checkerboard" pattern of 'deck tiles' whenever it is appropriate for your design.
  • Lightweight, low-clearance and exceptionally sturdy aluminum joists create a secure, straight and true joist system.

  • ClickFoot pedestals allow design of decks from 4" height above the roof or patio to over 24" total height to the top of the decking. No drilling or additional fastening is required for a quick and efficient installation.

  • ClickFoot pedestals require no extra fastening; simply 'click' the aluminum system profile into the pedestal.

Eurotec® Adjustable Height Pedestals

 

Eurotec ClickFoot Pedestal

The ClickFoot™ pedestal is designed for a wide range of height adjustments and ease of installation. Clickfoot pedestals can be used for decks ranging in height from 3-3/4" to over 24" from the top of the roof (or patio) to the top of the decking boards.  Once the Clickfoot pedestals are in place, the Aluminum System Profile (joist or track) "clicks" into place.

Eurotec® Profi-Line Pedestal

For additional design flexibility, the Eurotec Profi-Line pedestal is available for your deck project needs. Like the ClickFoot™ pedestal, this deck pedestal provides a wide adjustment range to accommodate various heights and pitches. When used with the Aluminum System profile and decking, this assembly can accommodate heights (from top of roof surface to top of decking surface) from 3-1/2" to over 24" from the top of the roof (or patio) to the top of the decking boards.  

A ClickFoot adapter attaches to the top of this pedestal for easy installation with the Aluminum System Profile.

With the Aluminum Ssytem Profile, there is no need for wood deck joists. The Aluminum System Profile provides a super-strong, yet lightweight framing system that can span up to 33" with a minimum of deflection for a sturdy, straight and true deck frame structure. No extra weight, no rot, no twists, no worries.
