Benefits of Smart Deck Panels

  • Replaces the mortar bed layer required for tile assemblies which substantially reduces dead load and efflorescence (up to 90% dead load reduction)*.
  • Absorbs and isolates substrate stresses and cracks which helps prevent rigid tile and stone assemblies from failing.
  • Can be used below most popular wear surfaces including tile, stone, floating decks or pavers that use sand bed, pedestal or grid system.
  • Can be cut-to-fit in the field
  • Eliminates the chances of water ponding on the tile assembly
  • Substantially reduces the time and skill level required to build a code-compliant tile deck assembly

*dead load reduction percentage based on comparison to mortar bed average dead load.
