Timber base pads make easy work of leveling your timber frame to be used as the base for your log cabin or garden building. Two sizes are available to cope with most moderate inclines of 0 - 140mm with a combination of pads.

Features:

  • Made from ABS plastic.
  • Designed to make levelling of a timber frame base easy and quick.
  • High Quality design.
  • Wide base plate for stabilisation.
  • Central ring to adjust height.
  • BLACK in colour.
  • Support flange Height 25mm.
  • The top of the base pads is L shaped with a base of 85>67mm
  • 6mm diameter holes in flange and base plate.

Usage:

A timber frame base can be made from a variety of thicknesses and depths of timber. The strength comes from the depth (height) of the timber. Please see our Timber Frame Advice page. For timber such as 35mm x 50mm spacing must be 600mm or less. For thicker timber this can be increased to 1.00m - 1.50m or further. Ideally the base pads will be supported on a paving slab or similar and maybe bolted / screwed down as required. Weights of cabins are shown on the pages but consider the imposed loads you are applying inside the building.

As well as ideal for leveling timber frame bases these pads are perfect for decking construction.

These base pads feature an L-Shaped top that allows timber to be slotted on and up again, this means that if you need to support wider timbers than the base of the pad allows you can by simply alternating the position of the pads from left to right to left ect.

The thickest joist thickness is 90mm for base pads, but can take more if required. You will just need to ensure the next pad is face to the L shaped top is facing the opposite way so it's not able to slip.

Please Note. Most of our log cabins come with their own foundation beams, these beams are only their to act as a sacrificial barrier and are not in our opinion man enough to be used as a timber base and supported only at intervals.. When planning to use these base pads with our log cabins you will need your own timber base/structure directly on top of the base pads and underneath the first layer of log cabin logs.

The timber frame adjustable base pads make leveling a timber frame an absolute breeze. I used 24 on a 3m x 5m frame and they are rock solid.

They are incredibly strong, the heavy duty 60-140mm ones can take 1400kg load each !

A few tips:
Open the pad to its maximum travel and spray a little WD40/ Grease/lubricant on the thread, then adjust them back down. This makes turning them under load a little easier.

Before you mount them adjust them all up from the lowest setting by 1 to 2 cm so you can adjust down as well as up when installed.

Make sure you unscrew the top and bottom adjuster by the same amount. Once installed turning the adjuster ring automatically adjusts the top and bottom by the same amount.

I have noticed the base can get little pools of water sitting on the plastic base plate where the base screws sit. If you are screwing the base of the pad down then be sure to use A2 or better A4 Stainless steel screws as coated/galvanised ones will quickly rust away if they sit in these little pools of water formed by the base's strengthening ribs.
