Kirk Structural joints are used in commercial buildings, offices, shopping centres, airports, train stations and parking decks. Specifiers and engineers can select from a vast variety of floor expansion joints and covers with their three brands: M.Trim, Arfen and Vexcolt.  

Technical strength 

  • Options vary from entry-level expansion joints of ±5mm to complex designed products able to absorb ±50mm of movement – whether vertical, horizontal, shear or combined. 
  • Can absorb movement experienced in different concrete slab designs – coffer, post-tension, pre-tension, precast and reinforced.  
  • Where required, a range of fire barriers is included. 
  • Waterproof systems are available. 

Aesthetic benefits 

Cost-effective options are available that complement the flooring type used – tiles, carpet, vinyl, polished concrete or screed. Structural covers are available in aluminium, rubber and a rubber-and-steel-plate combination. 

Issue: Finding a fit-for-purpose structural joint solution. 
Solution: Kirk Structural offers solutions for all gap width designs, loading and movement types. 

Specification service 

A Kirk Structural 13-point questionnaire assists with choosing the correct product for the specified loading and movement. Detailed fitting instructions per product type are available, and Kirk sales consultants are available to assist with on-site specifications, samples and technical knowledge.
