MC-Floor Connect for high-resistance, low-noise floor joints
Bottrop, 25 November 2015. Conventional floor joint profiles of steel are deployed to resist high wheel loads on concrete floors – as encountered, for example, in car parks, production and storage buildings and in retail facilities. You cannot see them, but you frequently hear them as contact from wheeled traffic invariably gives rise to noise and vibration. Industrial trucks such as forklifts often shake as they pass over such joints, increasing noise levels and even sometimes causing damage to fragile goods on board. Sooner or later, the forklifts and the floor itself experience attrition, with operative health also a concern. Now these problems can all be assigned to the past – with MC-Floor Connect from MC-Bauchemie. These fast, easy-fit prefabricated plastic-concrete profiles create a smooth floor surface, ensuring that wheeled equipment can pass over virtually vibration- and noise-free. In areas with traffic like in multi-storey car parks special profiles offer joint width bridging capability of up to 80 mm. These properties are unmatched in the marketplace.
