Floor Joints are designed and positioned to allow movement in concrete floors, without restraining that movement as that could lead to random cracking. Joint sealant should be rigid enough to provide support and protection to the concrete arrisses but it must also accommodate the anticipated movement in the floor whilst remaining bonded to at least one face of the joint.
