The CONCRETE Times • FEB 2015 THE UK CONCRETE SHOW 2015 JOINT PROTECTED ISEDIO shieldjoint there is no impact across the joint and no joint sealing. SHIELDJOINT is an innovative, patent pending, leave-in-place joint system from Isedio designed specifically to meet the demanding needs of today’s industrial concrete floors. SHIELDJOINT exceeds the requirements of TR34, 3rd Edition and belongs to the family of ‘sealant-free joint systems’. SLEEVE DESIGN The sleeve’s purpose is to form a barrier between the steel dowel and the concrete and allow the concrete to release in two horizontal planes (parallel and perpendicular to the joint) on the free side of 50 the joint. Vertical displacement between adjacent slab panels is undesirable as this can lead to a reduction in floor and joint life. SHIELDJOINT sleeves are designed to facilitate up to ± 20mm of parallel movement along the joint before the joint opens up. ZERO PARALLEL MOVEMENT Other joint systems allow zero parallel movement between slab panels (i.e. along dock levellers) and can cause slab lock-up. SHIELDJOINT can be specified with factory pre-set top platesto cater for even greater parallel movement.
