Sika® FloorJoint – THE ULTIMATE JOINT SOLUTION
Structures are designed with expansion and contraction joints at appropriate places to allow inevitable movements. The design of the joint is important for the overall design to function correctly. Sika provides a huge range of elastic joint sealants to seal and protect joints in walls and ceilings. However, joints in floor substrates have to withstand a lot of different stress: direct traffic with heavy forklifts or cars, chemical attacks and mechanical abrasion, etc. Often a floor joint also has to be waterproof to protect the substrate from corrosion. Ordinary joint solutions with a joint sealant or with metal profiles aren’t resistant enough to withstand this stress and might fail after a short time.
The Sika® FloorJoint range is designed to meet those demands under various exposures. Furthermore Sika® FloorJoint provides many unprecedented advantages.
Sika® FloorJoint is a prefabricated, carbon fiber reinforced polymer composite floor panel system with high mechanical resistance. Its wave like joint design permits improved load distribution and results in minimum vibrations under direct car and forklift traffic.
Sika® FloorJoint panels are used for the installation and refurbishment of joints in concrete slabs and concrete screeds. They can be used for parking lot decks, garage floors, ramps, inside storage areas and assembly halls, maintenance workshops, hospitals, schools and warehouses with normal to medium wear. The different models in the Sika® FloorJoint range meet the various demands in each area.
