HC-Omega

The HC-O profile is a very robust and strong expanding joint and has proved its effectiveness for over 20 years. This design was recently adapted and improved, yielding even better results than before. This joint comprises two 5 mm thick S235JRG2 grade steel, cold rolled Omega profiles. 

Technical data videos

The shape and minuscule tolerance between the 2 profiles prevent the least amount of vertical movement and guarantee optimal load transfers. The fitted pin bolts guarantee solid anchorage in the concrete when shrinking occurs due to drying of the concrete emulsion, which also causes the joint to expand and the actual widening to occur. The milled upper side ensures perfect smoothness of the 2 steel plates and lasting edge protection of the newly created floor portions.

The HC-O profile range is also available in an electro-galvanized version and only in standard lengths of 3 metre. From 200 mm height a second row of pin anchor bolts are provided on the underside as standard. For heights from 160 mm to 200 mm, the same second row treatment is also available as an option.


In extreme conditions, expansion could be more intense than shrinkage and therefore this profile is available with 5 or 9 mm shrinkage-expansion foam in-between the edges.

For profiles > 300 mm and for stainless steel implementations, contact us to obtain further technical information for your specific measurements and an optional no-obligation quote, if so preferred.
