The unique part of the Uni-Pier underfloor support system is that it is a (2) two part system. It is designed to save you time and money while minimising waste.
Uni-Pier posts start at 200mm and increase in height in increments of 200mm ie 200mm, 400mm, 600mm, 800mm – all the way to 4000mm for the Builders Grade 65 x 65mm system and 5000mm for all of the other grades that we offer.
We can also offer pre-cut lengths to your specific length requirements. These may be a “special order” so always check with your local hardware store prior to ordering.
Once you have established the height of your pier (normally measured from ground level to the underside of the bearer), you select the post height that is 200mm lower than your desired height.
Let’s use the example that you need to reach a height of 750mm and you would like to use the Adjustable Telescopic Head. You would select the 600mm post and when you place the head on top, you simply slide it up 150mm until you reach your desired height of 750mm. You then secure the head to the post with a minimum of (6) six Metal Tek Screws.
In the same example, and you prefer our Adjustable Screw Top Head (STH), your starting height would be 655mm. However, you will be able to adjust up to 855mm. This is shared by 100mm of Telescopic, course adjustment + 100mm of Threaded Rod, finer adjustment – all by the simple action of turning the nut. As with the Telescopic system, you then secure the head to the post with a minimum of (6) six Metal Tek Screws.
Both systems provide you with up to 200mm worth of adjustment for each post size.
