METAFORM® Free Movement Joint — System for Medium to Heavy-Duty Concrete Floors

METAFORM® is a leave-in-place, free-movement modular joint system with integrated load transfer systems designed for medium- to heavy-duty concrete floors. It can be used to form either expansion or contraction free-movement joints in ground-bearing and pile-supported concrete floors.

METAFORM® Free Movement Joint transfers vertical loads between adjacent slabs and minimizes the vertical displacement of the slabs. The system ensures reliable load transfer at joints with openings up to 20 mm wide, and it is suitable for use with slab depths from 125 mm to 250 mm. The system is suitable for high flatness class floors and super flat floor construction, and it is extremely quick and simple to install by using a variety of installation methods.

The system provides a number of modular variants based on the METAFORM® base rail, which provides effective wrap around joint arris armoring. The METAFORM® system can be supplied with different types of plate dowel systems.

Model options

Single Rail TDR 6

METAFORM® (Single Rail) can be used singly for a number of basic applications, such as a perimeter form to define the area of floor to be cast, where sleeves can be left in the slab to make provision for a later extension. When using a single METAFORM® rail, it provides arris armoring only to one slab. Suitable to form a basic restrained movement or tied joint. TDR 6 dowel system is designed for construction of ground bearing expansion free movement joints with 15 mm initial joint opening, which is sufficient for all climatic regions.

DUO SS TDR 6

METAFORM® DUO SS is designed to construct formed contraction free movement joints in conventional ground bearing or pile supported concrete floors with the addition of two 15mm x 3mm stainless steel strips fixed to the uppermost edges. Therefore it is suitable for use on floors where the requirement is for a resin coated or screed finish, and corrosion is non-permissible. It is ideal solution for hygienic, pharmaceutical, or food processing environments. TDR 6 dowel system is designed for construction of ground bearing expansion free movement joints with 15 mm initial joint opening, which is sufficient for all climatic regions.
