"Bison Innovative Products offer the design flexibility to create versatile, unique outdoor spaces. Since 1994, Bison has led the industry in the design and manufacture of Pedestals and hardwood Deck Tiles that create beautiful rooftop environments. This independently tested, modular pedestal deck system allows rooftop decks to be installed quickly and easily without damaging expensive roofing systems.
Bison Pedestals are manufactured in the USA with 20% post-industrial recycled materials. Bison Versadjust pedestals create level rooftop decks over sloped surfaces. Bison pedestals elevate and support Wood Tiles, Concrete Pavers, Site Furnishings, and a variety of other surfaces when sophisticated, commercial grade decking is required. Bison Wood Tiles are commercial grade and available in standard and FSC® Certified species. Wood species include Ipê, Cumaru, Massaranduba, Garapa, Mahogany, and Bamboo. Bison Cubes are modular planters made from high strength Aluminum and Ipê and come in an array of colors and finishes. Bison Cubes are designed to integrate with Bison Deck Systems giving the architect complete design flexibility."
