Warehouse concrete slab and joint edge repair


Waterstop Solutions’ specialist technicians have completed several concrete and joint edge repairs recently. These photos show an example of a repair of a broken concrete surface at a large warehouse in QLD – A solution that delivers a high-strength concrete repair with an even surface and excellent bearing capacity. 𝗔 𝗴𝗿𝗲𝗮𝘁 𝗼𝘂𝘁𝗰𝗼𝗺𝗲 𝗳𝗼𝗿 𝗼𝘂𝗿 𝗰𝗹𝗶𝗲𝗻𝘁!

◾️  The best surface for safe and efficient movement of goods is a smooth, hard and uninterrupted surface.

◾️  Unsound concrete is removed.

◾️  Improved productivity of material handling and traffic efficiency.

◾️  Vehicles can move at speed without slowing down to manoeuvre over separated joints.

◾️  Reduced vehicle repair costs and downtime due to wheel replacement.

◾️  Time and Cost-Effective Solution – If left untreated, the defect grows wider and deeper and will eventually require expensive and time-consuming repairs.

The typical method used by  Waterstop Solutions in joint rehabilitation is as follows:

◾️    Repairs are square-cut into the concrete to prevent feather-edge cracking and to maximise durability.

◾️    Polymer repairs are used for rapid setting and higher impact resistance.

◾️    Once set, we normally grind repairs to ensure an extremely smooth transition.

◾️    Joints are re-cut and re-sealed to protect them from further damage.

◾️    Re-sealed joints are primed if the substrate is porous, which can double the life of the seal.

◾️    Appropriate joint sealant system for the application is selected and installed.

◾️    Joint Reduction – Wide joints suffer the most damage and any difference in level between the floor slabs will exacerbate the problem. Reducing the width of expansion joints to 10mm will help lower the impact of hard wheel traffic and minimise the chance of wheels getting caught in the joint.
Waterstop Solutions provides concrete slab surface and joint edge repairs as one of many remedial services we offer – We typically provide ground improvements at distributions centres, industrial warehouses, hardstands and civil infrastructure in QLD and NSW. For this particular site, we were engaged to fill the void beside a newly fixed stormwater pipe situated underneath a concrete slab. Heavy vehicles are accessing this area for deliveries, so the void requires a filling that that provides the structural strength that can withstand heavy vehicular traffic over the filled void without collapsing.
