Floor Joint & Crack Stabilisation
Floor slabs are designed and constructed with a positive load transfer mechanism that enables a moving load to be distributed from one slab to the other without significant deflection of the individual floor slabs. Positive load transfer can be achieved by simple aggregate interlock or by mechanical methods such as dowel bars or steel joint profiles.
Floor joints which have poor load transfer capabilities will always be more susceptible to arris failure because the arrisses are exposed to impact as the slabs deflect under the moving load, it is important to identify and correct any load transfer problems prior to installing floor repairs, otherwise the repair may quickly deteriorate.
