Slot unit connection

Our reinforced concrete slot units are equipped with a removable plug-in connection in the form of a socket and spigot. We supply wedge-shaped elastomer slip rings as seals, which act as compression seals. These are usually made from SBR material, but can also be supplied made from EPDM or from NBR for increased oil and fuel resistance requirements. The width of the butt joint should be 5 to 10 mm and can be filled with a suitable jointing compound after the traffic area has been constructed. If laying radii, the channels can be deflected so that a joint of 5 mm, (outside 15 mm) results on the inside. 

The maximum unit lengths given in the table therefore result for the construction of radii (with a channel width of 50 cm).
