RCR Flooring Products launches Signature II armoured joint
30th October 2017
RCR Flooring Products Ltd, which manufactures the Permaban brand of armoured joints, has launched its latest innovation.
Permaban Signature II is an evolution of the original award-winning Permaban Signature joint first launched in 2012.
With its distinctive half-hexagon shape, Signature prevents the wheels of materials handling vehicles from dropping between the two sides of the joint. Vehicles can therefore cross at any angle without causing impact, because the joint itself never bears any weight. No impact means no damage to the joint or the vehicle. Signature is used worldwide by RCR applications companies, and as part of many RCR Flooring Systems.
Signature II achieves a new ‘industry first’, both in terms of material and manufacturing: the joint is made from glass reinforced nylon (GRN) using an injection moulding process.
A strong, advanced composite, GRN is lightweight yet extremely robust and is used to manufacture products such as automotive parts, industrial bearings and safety helmets.
“Using GRN in joints brings huge benefits for building owners and flooring contractors alike,” commented Lee Brockway, Global Sales Director of RCR Flooring Products which owns the Permaban brand.
“The manufacturing process ensures exceptional product accuracy and consistency. Because of its light weight, it’s easy to ship and handle on site. It is UV stable and cannot rust, so Signature II can be used inside buildings, across doorways and externally too. But the key benefit is that it prevents impact damage to vehicles and joints, which dramatically reduces floor and vehicle maintenance costs, for the lifetime of the building.”
Signature II is supplied in short lengths of 1.2m which can be clipped together easily. Square dowel bars ensure good load transfer, and these clip into place to guarantee precise alignment.
The product is supplied in dark grey to blends discreetly into the majority of industrial floors, but other colours can be produced for clients with specific requirements.
Signature II is being launched in three popular heights – 125mm, 150mm and 175mm.
