Floor Joint Repair

Floor Joint Repairs in Melbourne

Concrete joint damage is an issue that commonly affects many industrial concrete floors. In fact, this is usually the number one cause of maintenance issues with industrial and warehouse floors, leading to potential health and safety hazards to both your employees and your equipment. If the damage is not repaired and is allowed to worsen beyond the point of re-sealing the deteriorated joint, the slab edges will also have to be reconstructed.

However, the extent and cost of any required floor joint repairs can be significantly reduced if the damage is detected and repaired as soon as possible. Carrying out regular inspections of the floor is a proactive approach that should be implemented to verify that the existing joint sealant is protecting and maintaining the floor joint slabs as it’s supposed to.

Causes of Joint Damage

Concrete joint damage can happen to any concrete floor slab throughout its lifetime due to the following factors that may occur during the course of a company’s daily operations:

  • Temperature changes
  • Heavy equipment operation
  • High levels of traffic
  • Poor slab settlement
  • Chemical exposure

Issues That Joint Damage Can Cause

Damaged joints can cause the floor surface to become bumpy. This can cause the following issues:

  • Preventable wear and tear inflicted on material handling equipment, such as forklifts, tow motors, scissor lifts and carts
  • Debris and dirt can become trapped in the cracked areas
  • Damaged areas can become a breeding ground for bacterial growth
  • Increased equipment driver fatigue
  • Decreased productivity
  • Slabs and slab sub-bases incur chemical contamination whenever oils and chemicals are spilt and seep into open joints
