The CoGri Group has acquired exclusive European distribution rights for the patented SD7 Joint Saver, which will be marketed as the CoGri Joint Stabiliser and managed by CG Flooring Systems.

The CoGri Joint Stabiliser (CJS) is a method for eliminating rocking slabs. CJS is a split aluminium cylinder (3" diameter, 7" long) containing a screw and wedge torque mechanism. When inserted between two slabs and expanded the pressure provides the interlock needed to restore load transfer and virtually eliminates harmful slab movement.

The spring-like mechanism allows it to expand and contract with the slab as it undergoes slab movement due to temperature changes. Alan Yuill, director of CG Flooring Systems says: "We have already installed CJS at a warehouse in Northampton for a global logistics company. The problems associated with a rocking slab were soon rectified with 14 stabiliser cans located, cored and set to torque in less than 2 hours."
