Construction Joints

Another important Screens application is that they can be used to protect construction joints within slabs.

This is common in deep basement construction when the pouring of the slab is split into two separate pours by use of a construction joint.

When construction joints are made, it is also common that the builder would like to accelerate one pour independently of the other, which in turn creates a falling hazard between the two pours.

In this scenario, Screens can be used as they normally would be along the construction joint which allows the acceleration of one pour but also does not hinder the forming and pouring of the other as the Screen can climb up to free the surface.
