Omega


Technical description

The Omega series expansion profiles are used to make day joints during concreting of industrial floors. They are made of sheet steel with a thickness of 2 mm to 5 mm, and a height of 12 cm to 30 cm. They are useful as stay-in-place formwork during the floor execution process, as they provide strengthening of the floor slab edge, trapezoid profiling of sheet steel and additional bolts prevent interlocking of concrete slabs and ensure good adhesion of the profile to the concrete. From the inside, the profiles are protected against corrosion by epoxy-based paint. They can easily and securely be installed i. e. by welding to intermediate bars driven into openings in the concrete base layer. Internal protection of the steel sheet is also a self-adhesive butyl washer locking the profiles in place (1,5 mm thickness).

Adhere to recommendations and remarks concerning installation.
