Renovation with a new floor construction
You have a structural component for which the floor structure (be it screed, stone, floor coverings, asphalt, coating or sealing) has to be renovated, meaning the complete installation height of the floor is removed?
In this case, the first decision is if you need a watertight profile which has to be connected to the adjacent surface sealing. In parking buildings, kitchens or swimming pool areas this is mandatory.
Are there no requirements for water tightness, the MIGUA standard profiles or heavy load profiles are an option for you. The profiles are usually doweled to the load-bearing structure/ the floor plate and adapted to the height of the floor structure.
For the dimensioning of the profile systems, information about the existing joint width, the joint movement (+/- in all three directions) and the expected load are required.
For low loads, the special case of floating installation is possible, which enables small profile heights. For high hygienic demands, for example in kitchens and hospitals, MIGUA has developed corresponding special profiles.
For separating joints or contraction joints with small movements, our ESF profiles are available. All profiles are developed for an easy and smooth roll-over. If an absolutely smooth traversability is required, e.g. for a high-bay warehouse, our vibration-free traversable profiles are just right for you.
For all profiles, formed parts, wall connections and terminations are available, so the geometry of the joint can be reflected by the profile. Particularly for annexes and extensions, profile combinations with different installation heights are available, so the expansion joint profiles can be adapted to the existing situation in the best possible way.
