Floor joints are in fact controlled cracks in concrete slabs. They should be designed and positioned to allow the floor to move without restraining that movement. Early life drying shrinkage and long term thermal changes are the main causes of floor joint movement.
Joints are often the greatest source of maintenance problems in industrial or warehouse floors. Their edges, or arrisses, are vulnerable to damage and tend to 'spall' under the impact from hard wheeled traffic.
Most industrial and warehouse floors will have joints with spalled edges and this should be seen as an early indication of more serious potential long term damage. Click here to view examples of floor joint problemsThe Solution
