A Concrete Slabs Joints are Often the Greatest Source of Maintenance Problems in Warehouse or Industrial Floors!Floor Joints are in fact controlled cracks in concrete slabs. They should be designed and positioned to allow the floor to move without restraining that movement. Early life drying shrinkage and long term thermal changes are the main causes of concrete floor joint movement.
Floor Joints are designed and positioned to allow movement in concrete floors, without restraining that movement as that could lead to random cracking. Joint sealant should be rigid enough to provide support and protection to the concrete arrisses but it must also accommodate the anticipated movement in the floor whilst remaining bonded to at least one face of the joint.
