Expansion Joint Covers for Floors

 AN EXTENSIVE RANGE FOR ALL PROJECT REQUIREMENTS

When specifying Expansion Joint Covers (EJCs) for a building, it’s important to bear in mind that it’s the FLOOR EJCs that have the most significant impact on a building’s occupants and its maintenance.  In addition to aesthetic preferences there are important factors that need to be considered, such as the EJC’s ability to handle rolling loads; or its ability to help maintain hygiene standards in public areas. Expansion Joint Covers also need to blend in with the existing interior elements. To accommodate the varying project requirements, there is an extensive range of CS Floor EJC’s available.

METAL EXPANSION JOINT COVERS:
Floors

METAL EJCs - Flooring

Metal expansion joint covers are generally intended for larger floor joints of up to 150mm wide. They are designed for a high movement range of up to ±100mm. In cases where there is nothing within the joint, such as a fire or moisture barrier, then some metal floor covers are able to close up to 100%.

Metal EJCs benefit from a durable construction with very few (if any) perishable parts. This translates to a system that requires very little maintenance.

TECHNICAL PRODUCT INFORMATION

Restofit Expansion Joint Systems

RFA

This extremely low maintenance, all-metal surface mounted cover is resistant to rolling loads, wear & distortion. Serrations create a slip resistant surface and the model is suitable for both interior and exterior use.

The unique interlocking cover permits horizontal movement in the floor slab in addition to some vertical deflection, however RFA is intended for applications where minimal movement is expected.

RFB

This cover is designed for movement up to 100%. The self-centering aluminium cover plate allows for thermal movement and limited seismic movement. The cover is surface mounted and is designed for interior, new or retrofit applications.

RFC

Designed for interior applications, RCF is suitable for new and retrofit applications. The self-centering cover plate temporarily displaces to slide over the floor surface during seismic movement, but remains flush with the flooring surface during thermal movement.

RFD

RFD offers minimal installation time and requires little maintenance. The surface mounted aluminium cover is resistant to rolling loads, wear & distortion. RFD accommodates vertical offsets and a gradual taper minimizes the bump.
