Connectors plastic with steel reinforcement for connecting and coupling driving plates and ground protection plates on solid, hard, sensitive soils. The plastic connectors are suitable for creating lanes, temporary lanes, mobile construction lanes or working platform, storage area, crane parking area, or many other types of platforms. The connector made of robust HDPE plastic is available as 2-fold connector for connecting 2 driving plates or as 4-fold connector for connecting four driving plates.
Plastic connectors for hard, solid & sensitive floors
We recommend our plastic connectors when using drive plates on hard and sensitive floors such as (pavement, asphalt, tiles, etc). Loads that act on the driving plate are distributed over a wide area by the connector and thus effectively reduce the likelihood of damage to the substrate.
2-fold connector for coupling 2 driving plates as driving lane at the corner holes
The 2-fold connector makes it possible to connect or couple 2 driving plates or ground protection pads to create a lane for a driveway or construction road. In order to connect the driving plates as one lane, the corner holes of the opposite driving plates must be connected with each other. As soon as the connector has been inserted into the corner holes of the driving plates, the connector is firmly connected by 2 screws. The 2-fold plastic connector consists of 1 plastic connector, 2 screws and a steel reinforcement.
2-fold connector for coupling of 2 drive plates as platforms in the center holes
In case of high quality driving plates with 10-hole, 12-hole or 16-hole system, which are laid as platform or full-surface construction road, we additionally recommend to couple the driving plates also at all center holes with the 2-fold connector in order to achieve the maximum bonding of the system. This reduces the possible wear and tear and at the same time improves the positional picture as well as the location stability.
4-fold connector for coupling of 4 track panels as platform or full-surface construction road at the corner holes
Whenever driving plates or ground protection plates are connected to each other as a platform or full-surface construction road, the 4-way connector should be used to couple four plates at the four corners or corner holes. This is recommended in order to counteract the high shear forces caused by traffic and the material movement caused by temperature differences. The 4-fold plastic connector consists of 2 plastic connectors, 4 screws and a steel reinforcement in cross form.
Improvement of the positional stability, positional fidelity and positional pattern of the track panels
The panels are usually laid "floating", i.e. they are laid loosely on a substrate without being fixed. Due to the floating installation, the panels are always in motion, even after they have been joined together. The movement of the panel and the system is amplified by any slope of the surface, the temperature-related material expansion and shrinkage and by the forces acting on the panels through the use of the surface. In short, it is necessary to know that the slabs are always in motion and will move. In order to improve the positional stability and appearance of the slabs, the use of building protection mats or rubber mats between the floor and the slabs, among other things, has proven to be very effective. In addition, we always recommend to couple all connecting holes of the plates with the corresponding connectors as described above.
Connectors plastic PRO stainless steel on request
The reinforcement and threaded inserts of the standard "STD" version are made of galvanized steel. Alternatively, the connector is available in "PRO" version with threaded inserts and reinforcement in stainless steel. The "PRO" version is recommended to avoid possible rust stains that can occur with the STD version, if the zinc coating has been damaged by the use of the connectors.
