Heavy Duty Movement Joint Covers at Grand Central Birmingham

January 2017

Heavy Duty Movement Joint Covers at Grand Central Birmingham

As part of a £600m redevelopment, Birmingham New Street station and the old Pallasades shopping centre have undergone a major redesign, to create what is now known as Grand Central Birmingham.

With such a large building footprint, Grand Central required an extensive array of movement joint covers to combat the expected building movement.

Since Grand Central is such a high traffic location for both pedestrians and vehicles, it was important to select heavy duty movement joint covers for both the centre itself, and its large adjacent multi-storey car park.

For the interior of the shopping centre, CS supplied the heavy duty APF series. Proven in shopping centres around the world, the APF series is highly resistant to rolling loads, distortion and wear, and features serrated cover plates to provide an anti-slip surface.

For the multi storey car park, CS supplied 25m of the robust KB series movement joint cover.

The KB model features a specially designed centre plate that offers a 1000kg point load capability. Additionally the patented turnbar assembly protects the cover from lateral load damage caused by vehicular traffic moving across it, ensuring a long lifecycle with minimal maintenance requirements. The supplied moisture barrier and drainage assembly ensure a waterproof finish is maintained within the car park structure.

Construction Specialties - Parking Expansion Joint Covers in Casino Multi-Storey

For a busy place like The Star casino complex in Sydney, it’s important for visitors and employees alike to be able to come and go from the car park without any hassles. But after a significant amount of wear and tear, The Star’s existing metal expansion joint covers were leaking between floors. Not only that, they were a trip hazard too as the fixings began to dislodge.

Beyond safety concerns, visitors to The Star were also contending with major noise issues. The casino’s patrons were distracted by the sound of cars driving over the metal joints — less than ideal when focusing on enjoying a game of Blackjack or heading out for an evening of entertainment.

As part of a refurbishment to the car park to address these issues, The Star selected CS Zip Block expansion joint covers, the most popular cover in our parking expansion joint covers range.

CS - Parking Expansion Joint CoversZip Block provided an all-in-one solution. A revolutionary waterproofed one-piece expansion joint cover that installs without the need for messy elastomeric concrete, ZipBlock took care of the leaking and noise issues at The Star in one fell swoop. Plus, its impressive slip rating makes it ideal for areas with heavy foot traffic.

With Zip Block parking expansion joint covers in place, The Star’s visitors don’t have to worry about leaking water in the car park, trip hazards or excessive noise.

Beyond Zip Block, we offer many different parking expansion joint covers suited to a range of needs. See if these products are right for you by getting in touch with us. Or, simply order a sample to see for yourself.
