All plastic flooring materials will expand and contract during fluctuating temperature conditions. This phenomenon of thermal expansion is a result of the nuclear expansion within the plastic and is a natural property of all plastic materials (and many other materials as well). In plastic modular floors, expansion can result in floors warping, buckling, disconnecting or otherwise becoming uneven.
Only Signature Flooring’s EventDeck offers an engineered expansion joint module to accommodate the thermal expansion that can occur during varying temperature conditions. Like an expansion joint in a bridge, building, or highway, the EventDeck expansion module is designed to accommodate natural expansion.
Until the development of the EventDeck Expansion Module (ED-XJ), event managers, concert promoters, stadium managers, groundskeepers and others involved in the production of concerts or other on-field events simply had to accept the inconvenient condition of thermal expansion at outdoor events as unavoidable.
With ED-XJ organizers can feel comfortable knowing that the EventDeck system will be able to handle temperature fluctuation throughout the day and night, avoiding potential warping or buckling and giving you the peace of mind that an engineered solution is in place.
