Incorporates the distinctive half-hexagon shape, which allows traffic to cross the joint smoothly in any direction without impact, preventing damage to the joint and vehicles.

Ideal for cold stores, where low temperatures will cause extreme concrete contraction, and thus larger gap sizes.

Suitable for use with pallet trucks, and front and lateral stacker trucks.


SLIDEFORCE™ Steel Armoured Joint

This special armoured joint accommodates larger gap sizes, from 15mm up to 40mm.

The clever design incorporates two steel plates on top of each other. As the concrete contracts, the two plates slide across each other, one in either
direction. However, the gap in the middle of the joint is never exposed, preventing debris from falling into the gap.

The distinctive half-hexagon shape allows traffic to cross the joint smoothly in any direction without impact, preventing damage to the joint and vehicles.

SLIDEFORCE™ joints allow design and construction of floor slabs in conformance with BS EN 1991-1-1:2002 & BS EN 1992-1-1:2004 and to best practice as set out in TR34 4th edition.

SLIDEFORCE™ complies with the Construction Products Regulation (Regulation (EU) No. 305/2011), hold appropriate CE marking and are manufactured under the disciplines of ISO 9001:2015.

Key Benefits
  • Heavy duty joint arris protection.
  • Accommodates larger gap sizes easily.
  • Incorporates plate dowels for efficient load transfer between adjacent concrete slabs.
  • Continuous concrete ties securely anchor the joint into the slab along its length.
  • Resistant to twisting caused by the impact of wheeled traffic.
  • Allows controlled horizontal slab movement, preventing random cracking.
  • Eliminate vertical movement between slabs during concrete contraction, for a level floor surface.
  • Supplied as one unit for easy handling and installation - the two sides are connected with frangible rivets which separate naturally after installation.
