Neoprene-X-Pansion Loc Strips

Neoprene-X-Pansion Loc Strips

Available in Brass, Zinc & Stainless Steel


Latham Neoprene-X-Pansion Loc Strips are cost effective pavement movement control systems that are fast, efficient, and easy to install, leaving no mess. They provide a vandal resistant, attractive, permanent and maintenance free means of accommodating movement.

Neoprene-X-Pansion Loc Strips are manufactured under strict factory controlled conditions using high quality brass, aluminium or stainless steel plates bonded to a quality air channelled neoprene core. They are designed specially for installation in ornamental and architectural hard paving, to control the opening of floor joints during expansion and contraction. They absorb tile and paving growth and minimise edge erosion and cracking. Loc strips are delivered to the site ready for installation. They replace the previously recognised and outmoded, difficult to effect liquid poured construction and isolation joints, which were often omitted from the paving due to problems and cost in producing a satisfactory joint on site.

Loc Strips are 1800mm in length and are provided with anchoring loops at 175mm centres (for use with GW50/SSW50 Auxiliary Wire Anchors) for secure fixing and effective expansion and contraction control. Before selection all usage factors must be taken into consideration including technical characteristics of the chosen paving material. However for internal applications bay sizes in general have been 4.5 metre x 4.5 metre grids using a 6mm wide neoprene strip, with special consideration being given to site conditions. External paving bays are reduced to 3 metres x 3 metres with the installation of 12mm wide Loc Strips being considered. For insitu terrazzo and pebble paving maximum bay size recommended for internal applications not subject to direct sunlight is 7.5 metres x 3.75 metres and always with a side length ratio of 2:1 using a 6mm wide neoprene control section. All external paving should be reduced in dimension by 50%. If increased bay sizes are desired, first consideration should be to redevelop the pattern; as an alternative a 12mm wide Loc Strip should be considered. Special Application Neoprene-X-Pansion Loc Strips are available and are custom made to suit some special conditions.

Latham Neoprene-X-Pansion Loc Strips with 6mm neoprene control section are designed to be used in all hard flooring applications and to be installed in conjunction with wet bedded flooring applications.

Loc strips are supplied with the following metal sideplate thicknesses: standard brass and zinc profiles - 1mm; stainless steel type 304 - 0.7mm (stainless steel products are not recommended for finish to be ground insitu). Optional 3mm thick brass and zinc sideplates are available. Specify 3mm brass (LSB3MM) or 3mm aluminium (LSZ3MM).

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. Loc Strips are designed specifically for use with optional GW50/SSW50 Wire Anchors for maximum control.

Standard neoprene infill colour is black. Grey and buff colours are available on request.

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.
