Description - Our Nitro Tile Intersection Expansion Joints were meant to be used when you are using our Expansion Joints in a perpendicular fashion. This use of our Nitro Tile Expansion Joints is typically found in very large areas like a warehouse or large factory space. These intersection joints don't interlock with the joints but are more like a docking station for them. You would just sit the expansion joints on the edges of the intersection joint, and you are good to go.
Material – Constructed of high quality impact resistant polypropylene (extremely durable hard thermoplastic polymer). This ensures colorfastness, durability, and chemical resistance.
Size – 5" x 5".
Weight – ~.10 Lbs

Expansion Joint Installation
Where to install the expansion joints will depend on how large your garage is. For one car and two car garages, placing the expansion joints in the middle of the floor will be good enough to take care of any buckling issues.
For three car garages, you will want to install the expansion joints in the middle of both the large bay door and the small one. This will help to ensure buckling doesn't transfer throughout the floor.
For large warehouse spaces that experience buckling, you will want to install the expansion joints in a perpendicular pattern in the middle of the floor. You will use our Expansion Intersection Joint to create this effect.
If you have edging at the entrance to your garage or warehouse, you will want to use our Expansion Joint Edges to fill in the space that will not be created when adding the expansion joints.
