Through Bed Loc Strips
Available in brass, zinc & stainless steel
Latham Neoprene-X-Pansion Through Bed Loc Strips with closed cell polyethylene tail, are the best method of ensuring that the joint under the Loc Strip is free from debris. The polyethylene tail is designed to go through the bed to the slab. The system is available with 6mm and 12mm neoprene insert widths.
Neoprene-X-Pansion Through Bed Loc Strips are designed to be used in all hard flooring applications and are designed to be installed in conjunction with wet bedded flooring applications.
Through Bed Loc Strips are supplied in standard lengths of 1800mm and installed so as to minimise the frequency of butt joints and short lengths. Also 3‑way and 4-way butt joint intersections should be avoided. Latham Neoprene-X-Pansion Through Bed Loc Strips are designed specifically for use with optional GW50/SSW50 Wire Anchors for maximum expansion and contraction.
Through Bed Loc Strips should be installed at all locations of stress concentration; at changes in direction; wherever localised movement is anticipated and around rigid and fixed large objects such as columns, stair and lift wells, light posts, across doorways, garden beds, manhole covers and embedded pipe work and anywhere that may impede expansion and contraction of the tiling.
All products are supplied in 1800mm lengths.

Optional 3mm thick brass & zinc sideplates are also available, specify with 3mm sideplates when ordering: Brass: TBLSB3mm / Zinc: TBLSZ3mm.
