Cosinus Slide Joint

Introducing the innovative new generation of edge protection and load transfer for concrete industrial slabs on grade - COSINUS SLIDE JOINT

In our searching for the perfect expansion joint, we introduce a complete new jointing solution which is realising the best load transfer system ever. The Cosinus Slide® joint solution with unique technology of load bearing capacity of the floor without any dowel system.

The Cosinus Slide® joint is characterised by a stable double 2x5 mm Sinus steel plate on top opposed by a double Sinus steel plate on bottom. Instead of traditional anchor studs the joint is fixed in the concrete by a special wreathed continuous rebar system over the total length of the joint and with connections top and bottom. A small steel plate in the middle prevents overflowing of the concrete. 

Thanks to the Sinus-Cosinus geometrical shaped form of the joint and the concrete, load transfer is not realised by the joint (with dowels)  but by the floor itself.  That’s why we say the joint is the floor, the floor is the joint.  Each sinus corrugation on top is opposed by a cosinus corrugation underneath. These crossed sinus corrugated steel plates shape small vertical steel concrete columns over each other. The load bearing of these columns defines the load bearing capacity of the complete floor. The loads are transferred simultaneously and proportionally throughout and over the floor by those vertical Concrete Columns shaped and supported by the Sinus-Cosinus  geometry.  This unique load bearing capacity of the floor slab is calculated and proved for all kinds of forklift traffic.

POINTS TO CONSIDER WHEN CHOOSING THE RIGHT EXPANSION JOINT

  • Where do you want to position yours racks? How heavy would you like them to be?
  • Have you maximised the load distribution throughout the whole floor from traffic and racks (dynamic and static)?
  • Will your floor optimise the performance of warehouse equipment?
  • How will you minimise maintenance costs from equipment and the joints themselves?
  • Will the warehouse traffic have a smooth and comfortable ride?

THE PERFECT SOLUTION FOR DYNAMIC LOADS 

Traditional systems cause stress concentrations and deformation in dowels. Discontinuous systems squeeze the loads into the dowels creating extreme pressure and deflection which then reduces the durability of the floor.

The Cosinus Slide Provides:

  • Smooth load transfer through its unique double slide effect - No stress concentrations, no deflection
  • Savings of up to 15% on warehouse productivity

THE PERFECT SOLUTION FOR STATIC LOADS 

Traditional systems cause cannot transfer static loads efficiently resulting in damage and ineffective weak floors. 20-30% load transfer, 100% load.

The Cosinus Slide Provides:

  • Extremely strong and cost-efficient floors, 40-48% (max) load transfer, 100% load
  • Savings of up to 15% on warehouse productivity
