HC-Delta SINUS Slide
|Sinusoidal joint (dilatation) |
HC-Delta SINUS Slide®
|100% joint free industrial floor is now possible!|
With the introduction of the HC-Delta SINUS Slide® joint, HCJ have solved the traditional problem of cracks and other damage to joints, floors and material handling equipment, eliminating the need for costly and difficult repairs. The Sinus slide joint complies with European directive 2002/44/EG regarding exposure of workers to whole body vibrations and eliminates the age old problem of backache for Forklift Operators.
|SHOCK AND VIBRATION FREE TRANSFER|
|The sinusoidal joint model guarantees shock- and vibration free transition between two floor parts up to a maximum opening of 20mm. Even with forklift trucks with extremely small wheels and regardless the direction, the passing on a sinus joint is experienced as no joint in the floor. |
The permanent contact between wheel and concrete floor creates
smoothly and noiseless load transfers which is experienced by the users as no joint in the floor. They can still see the sinus slide joint but they don’t feel it anymore.
|STRAIGHT AND SINUSOIDAL JOINT COMPARISON|
|If we made one passage in half using sinusoidal joint and in half using straigth joint – that one wheel of truck pass sinusoidal joint and second pass straight joint – we will observed damages on straight joint and concrete nex to this joint and any damages of sinusoidal joint. |
Damages will occure at straigt joint and concrete next to the joint because the weels of passing truck hits on the arris of open joint. Damages will be bigger and bigger.
With the Sinusoidal joint the wheels of the forklift slide from one floor slab to another without any shock impact. With traditional straight joints the wheels fall with the shock into the opening of the joint and are damaged by every passage, eventually they break down requiring replacement at great expense.
|Damage to the floor and joint is almost impossible as the cause of the damage (shocks caused by the wheels of the forklift when passing a joint) is eliminated. Material handling equipment is also no longer liable to shocks and vibrations. Accordingly there is less wear and expensive repairs are avoided. The life of the equipment is considerably prolonged.|
|Shock and vibration elimination was scientifically tested and proven|
Forklift without load crossing traditional straight joint Vibration clearly existing
|Forklift without load crossing HC-Delta SINUS joint Vibration clearly non-existing |
Forklift with load crossing traditional straight joint Vibration clearly existing
|Forklift with load crossing HC-Delta SINUS joint Vibration clearly non-existing |
|The peak vibration levels when passing the straight joint were very high and no increase |
in vibration levels are detectable when passing sinusoidal joint.
