Cosinus Slide® Steel Armored Joint
Posted by Performance Structural Concrete Solutions (PSCS) (booth # B4918)
Summary of Innovation
Due to the unique sinus wave geometry, the Cosinus Slide® joint completely eliminates impacts to floor joints caused from wheeled traffic. This allows for a completely maintenance free floor joint. In addition, the sinus wave geometry, the Cosinus Slide® joint incorporates continuous load transfer. The load transfer capacity is far superior to that of non-continuous doweled systems. With the Cosinus Slide® joint, the floor becomes the joint and the joint becomes the floor.
The end benefit of the Cosinus Slide® joint is that it is like there is no joint in the floor. Operations within a facility can operate at maximum efficiency, because MHE operators do not have slow down for deteriorated floor joints. Operators can also expect for dramatic reductions in MHE maintenance costs, wheel replacements, concrete floor repairs, and MHE operator turnovers.
Due to the unique sinus wave geometry, the Cosinus Slide® joint completely eliminates impacts and damages to concrete floor joints that caused by wheeled traffic.
The Cosinus Slide® joint is used mostly in industrial concrete warehouse floors, where frequent wheeled traffic is present.
