Hardstand joint refurbishment repair - Waterstop Solutions

Joint repairs and concrete slab edge refurbishments


Damaged, separated concrete slab joints can slow down forklift traffic. Travelling over damaged expansion joints and contraction/control joints is hard on all parts of your forklift. Frequent repairs and wheel replacements can lead to excessive expenses and loss of valuable operation time.

The Waterstop Solutions team has completed many joint repairs and concrete slab edge refurbishments on hardstands and concrete floors at some of the biggest distribution centres, warehouses and manufacturing plants in QLD and NSW over the years.
In warehouse and distribution facilities, the best industrial concrete floor is one that provides a smooth, hard, interruption-free platform for operations.
Concrete floors must have joints – and joints are interruptions in an otherwise continuous surface. Each joint is a potential impact point for hard wheels, pallets, forklift tongs or other hard objects. When these material handling vehicles run across uninterrupted floors, they can operate at their optimum speed and thus achieve their intended productivity rate.

Warehouse slabs, cold-room floors and driveways are subject to impact damage from forklifts – especially electric forklifts. The small, solid rubber wheels impact upon joint shoulders and any small imperfections on the slab. Often these areas will “grow” rapidly and become a potential risk for operators, the forklift and stock.

Whilst working around traffic at the facilities, Waterstop Solutions always put the health and safety of everyone on-site first without compromising on quality and delivery time.

We offer joint edge repair solutions with minimal disruption and downtime. We achieve this using correct repair techniques and high-build rapid setting concrete repair mortar that develops an integral bond to existing concrete and restores structural integrity within hours of placement.

The joint repair systems are specifically designed to withstand crack and joint movement due to expansion or contraction. The process includes expert repair of concrete joint edges prior to the installation of our recommended system.

 We start any remedial concrete joint repair with an inspection and assessment to identify underlying issues and propose a solution that is in line with the facility function of the warehouse, distribution centre or manufacturing plant.
There is no standard floor design because each industrial floor has a variety of demands placed upon it depending on the material handling vehicle type, load weights, frequency of traffic, site conditions, environment etc. Hardstands accommodate frequent heavy vehicle traffic and internal warehouse floors joints are subject to impact damage from material handling vehicles. As an example, high rack lifts place higher demands on floor joints due to their smaller, harder wheels and increased point loads.
