Vexcolt joints help prevent future failures on the floors and walls of buildings.Virtually every medium to large size building will require structural movement joints to absorb the movement experienced in these size and type of buildings. To help specify the correct structural movement joint, Kirk asks built environment professionals such as architects and engineers to complete a comprehensive 13 point questionnaire to ensure that the correct solution is provided.

Vexcolt joints are one of the leading options available to address this challenge. It is specified for floors and walls in all types of buildings such as shopping centres, office blocks, hotels, airports, parking garages, train stations and more.

The comprehensive questionnaire with all the expected loading and movement is used to help the Kirk team advise on the correct structural movement joint that should be specified. All too often, Kirk has had to help professionals with failures caused by incorrect products specified. The right Vexcolt joint can help prevent future failures on the floors and walls of buildings.

Some of the projects completed by Kirk and Vexcolt in 2016 are Stats SA headquarters, Nelson Mandela Children’s hospital, Rosebank Towers, Tshwane Municipal Headquarters, Wonderboom Junction, Landrover Sandton and Podium at Menlyn phase 2, among many others.

In Southern Africa, Vexcolt’s  Maxatec, Megatec and Flexatec ranges are predominately used, but other ranges available include Transatec and Fireflex for parking decks, roads and fire barriers. The team at Kirk can provide built environment professionals with more information and a presentation about Vexcolt.
