Silca Paving System

Choose SilcaSystem®, the smart way to redesign your Backyard!

When building their hives, honeybees rely on a Hexagonal Pattern for strength and integrity. Silca System® mirrored this natural hexagon pattern in the creation of Silca Grate. “But, why?” you ask. Simple: the hexagon design creates a super-strong substructure capable of sustaining heavy deck materials, such as brick, travertine, slate, granite, marble, and natural stone, None of which Rot, Stain, Split, or Fade like a regular wood deck does. Allowing for a simple deck that Requires little to no maintenance.

Quick Install Tips:

  1. Determine finished floor elevation height.
  2. Determine the thickness of the bricks or pavers being used in the project.
  3. Build your substructure with floor joists at 400mm centres.
  4. RECOMMENDATION: Deck construction should be in compliance with local codes.
  5. Screw down the Silca Grate. We recommend that you stagger the Silca Grate joints. (i.e. start with full Silca Grate then on next joist start with a half Silca Grate). Use six 65mm to 75mm #9 rustless deck screws per Silca Grate(Test screws for a firm fit. Do not over tighten).
  6. Install Geotextile blanket (If you are using Polymeric sand between the joints of the Bricks or Pavers).
  7. Install your choice of paving according to your local paving codes.
