A recent article by Bill Redmond in Warehouse & Logistics News discussed how industrial concrete floors could give a competitive edge and highlighted problems relating to joints. 

 “Some regard floors as a liability, whilst others would use more denigratory language, but floors are like machinery in one respect; treat them well and they will serve you well”

Concrete Floor Slab Design

Treating industrial concrete floors well does not just mean maintaining them post construction and implementing a well structured concrete floor slab maintenance regime – it means making the right choice at budget setting and design/detailing stage.  Investing in your concrete floor slab is the smart way forward to avoid problems later. 

Bill goes on to say that “Prevention is better than cure” and “Nowhere is time so critical as in the e-fulfillment centres coping with online delivery orders from demanding consumers looking for same or next-day delivery.  Any problems with the floor therefore, which slow down operations is bad news for such centres”

If construction/expansion/saw cut joints create problems – why not eliminate them?
