VARIO FIX for fast deck assembly

With the new megawood® VARIO FIX system, we offer you a consistent and sophisticated system from click-in construction beams up to snap-in clips. Easy handling, infinitely variable adjustment and quick installation are the characteristics of this system. Time-consuming preparations, such as pre-drilling in concrete, is a thing of the past. The megawood® construction plan tells you exactly how this is done.

With the megawood® VARIO FIX system, you are choosing a particularly convenient way to install your deck flooring, whether with open or closed joints. Thanks to its 360° spherical head, an inclination adjustment of up to 10 % can be achieved without any problems. And with the extremely flexible and stepless height adjustment, even existing, uneven floor coverings can be covered perfectly in no time at all. Floating installation with a clear conscience!

Ideal for roof terraces, the high dead weight enables the VARIO FIX to meet the minimum requirements for a floating installation across the area. Please consult a specialist should the requirements be higher.

The ground level deck can be created with a closed joint as long as the compulsory construction height is min. 161 mm, a compulsory min. 2 % gradient is adhered to and it is compulsory that an adequate underventilation or back ventilation is provided for (e.g. use of ventilation grilles, distance between the rhombus profiles).

“Our new VARIO FIX substructure system, in combination with the new structure beam, enables a span width of max. 1,000 mm. The flexible height adjustment and inclination adjustment of up to 10 % offer unlimited possibilities. This is a development of which my team and I are very proud.”

Special features in the construction

Laying on mitres for L, U, O-shaped terraces
• Double sub-construction along the 45°section.
• insert sealing tape into the mitre joint on both sides.
• Only push the floorboard into the mitre profile by 10 mm in order to ensure the expansion.
• When attaching short floorboard sections (that can be fastened to the lower edge with less than 3 locking clamps or clips) on the diagonal or mitre cut, the sections are screwed to the construction beam from above. (M6 x 40 mm screw)

Vfx Eng 01

Construction at floor level with ventilation grille
• The terrace deck is constructed at ground level and creates a level circumferential terrain edge.
• A distance of at least 20 mm between the boards and raised, fixed components must always be maintained.
• The ground level deck can be created with a closed joint as long as the compulsory construction height is min. 161 mm, a compulsory min. 2 % gradient is adhered to and circumferential ventilation grilles or other constructional measures are ensured in order to provide an adequate under ventilation or back ventilation
• Only implement a level floorboard structure with a 5 mm in conjunction with a ventilation
• Use of the ventilation grid (also with „placed-on“ deck or in the event of a closed gap) in order to improve the air circulation beneath the terrace and to increase the service life of the entire deck.

Vfx Eng 02

Laying as a deck with herringbone pattern
• A double sub-construction is to be provided at all butt joints.
• The Distanz Fix is positioned between the double construction beam in order to create the clearance of the butt joints.
• When using the Distanz Fix, each of the construction beams are to be provided with a retaining tape next to the Distanz Fix, it is not to be placed on the tape.

Vfx Eng 03

Construction on a roof terrace or on existing stone/stoneware surfaces
• When constructing on roofing membranes or on existing stone or stoneware surfaces, the VARIO FIX is to be positioned on suitable protective mats. Ensure that the drainage system is sufficient to allow all the water to drain from the surface.
• Position the VARIO FIX on adequately dimensioned rubber pads and not direct on the surface.
IMPORTANT! Coordinate the construction form with the architect or specialist company. It is recommended that the roof terrace be bordered with a gravel ditch (grain size: 32 x 64 mm).
