Questions about StrataRise Low-Profile and Multi-Level Pedestals
Can the support pedestals be used with 4" wide joists?
Yes - with the 1836, 2442, 3560 & 4166 pedestals the joist will overlap by about 1" on one side and we recommend placing the supports alternately from the left and right sides of the joists.
