Movement joints, control joints, also known as control strips, isolation joints are designed to manage thermal expansion and contraction in constructed surfaces,such as stone,tile,marble,terrazzo or virtually any other solid floor finish that requires movement control due to thermal contraction and expansion. They also can absorb climate-related tile and paving growth and minimise erosion and cracking to surface paving.
Control joints / movement joints for tile,marble and stone are designed for use in all adhesive fixed hard flooring applications and to be installed in conjunction with the appropriate tile adhesive. They can be used for both internal and external applications. In external areas where increased movement and temperature changes can be expected, a combination of wider neoprene control strips and reduced flooring component sizes should be considered.
They are available in any neoprene/EPDM insert colours and metal side plate combinations including brass, stainless steel, aluminium. Different from other manufacturers,our aluminium side plate material is 6063 T5,much more stronger than 1060 folded side plate.
