A revolutionary expansion joint cover from Construction Specialties - CS was installed in the car park of The Star casino complex in Sydney to replace the problematic metal expansion joint covers.

Following a significant amount of wear and tear, the existing metal expansion joint covers in The Star’s car park were leaking between floors. As the fixings began to dislodge, they also became a trip hazard for car park users. Beyond safety concerns, visitors to The Star had to deal with major noise issues caused by the sound of cars driving over the metal joints.

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 Construction Specialties’ parking expansion joint covers range.

An all-in-one solution, Zip Block is a waterproofed one-piece expansion joint cover that installs without the need for messy elastomeric concrete. In addition to resolving the leaking and noise issues at The Star, the Zip Block was also able to make the car park a safer place for pedestrians with its impressive slip rating.

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.

Zip Block (ZB) is a waterproof one-piece extruded EPDM elastomeric seal with integral nosings, which is bonded to the substrate with high strength epoxy adhesive. Stronger than traditional elastomeric concrete systems, it provides a problem-free long-term joint solution.

Construction Specialties offers a broad range of parking expansion joint covers to suit diverse needs.
