Tools required: Hammer, Screws, Spirit Level, String Line and Stakes.
- Using a string line for the FinnJoint, hammer in the star pickets below the hight of the FinnJoint. Use a 25x50 pine timber block and screw the star picket through the block into the PVC.
- Use a level on top of the FinnJoint and insert timber wedges if needed to achieve level.
- Slide the dowel sleeves with screws in the sleeves to their pre marked position and screw into the PVC
Slide the Aluminium side anchors to their marked positions. eg 150 from each end and the others at 300 centres.
- Remove or loosen 2 screws one at each end of male extrusion (they are only there for transportation and assembly on site)
- Once this side is poured remove stakes and blocks insert steel dowels and slide anchors at 300 centres
NOTE: In the initial setup, set the FJ25S with a dumpy level approx 2mm higher than required. Then before pouring hammer the stakes down to the correct level using a dumpy and a sprite level.
It is recommended that adequate support is used when constructing the FinnJoint divider plate to prevent distortion of the FinnJoint™ FJ25S.
FORMING INTERSECTIONS IMPORTANT
As above but for all Forming Intersections always use a soft cut to standard lengths of FinnJoint where they form an intersection to allow the joint to open correctly on all sides of the T or + intersections. If small lengths of FinnJoint™ are used must have a minimum of 2 side anchors on each side.
JOINT SPACING & LIMITATIONS
The slab size and joint spacing should be determined by an engineer. The FinnJoint™ FJ25S is designed to accept up to 25mm shrinkage.
