Floor Joint Arris Repair
The size and cost of floor joint repairs can be kept to a minimum if the damage is detected and repaired at an early stage. Regular inspections should be made to check that the existing joint sealant is doing its job to protect and maintain the floor joint arrisses. Once the damage has been allowed to progress beyond the scope of re-sealing the joint, it will be necessary to re-construct the arrisses.
CoGri Australia’s heavy duty repair mortar; CoGri Rapid Mender, is specifically intended for use on industrial floor to repair floor joint arris damage quickly and with minimum disruption to the ongoing operation.
Wide joints increase the risk of arris spalling due to the deflection of the joint sealant under load. It is therefore important to reduce the width of the joint opening at surface level. Our tried and tested floor joint arris repair solution allows a 50mm wide ‘traditional expansion joint’ to be replaced with a neat 5mm wide, fully sealed saw cut. Each of our floor joint repairs are ground smooth and flush with the adjacent floor surface to ensure that wheeled traffic has a smooth transition over the repaired joint.
