Guardian Paver System

High wind and severe site conditions require an outstanding paver system. Hanover® has developed the Guardian® Paver System especially for the most severe conditions, which require an elevated roof paver pedestal system. This system creates a monolithic paver surface which provides high wind uplift resistance. Guardian® is made up of a unique 3 piece Guardian® Pedestal and a specially shaped Guardian® Paver that, together, “lock down” and unitize the entire roof paver surface, preventing horizontal and vertical movement. The Guardian® Pedestal has a square top that allows its bolt to pass through to a base beneath, fitting into a recessed grooved portion of the Guardian® Paver. U.S. Patent #6,604,330 and Canadian Patent 2,409,312.
