TripStop™ is a rigid PVC profile that is used to form transverse joints in concrete pavements that are capable of transferring load while accommodating rotation and contraction or expansion. It is particularly suited to pavements designed for pedestrian or bicycle traffic. Pavements of this type are relatively lightly loaded but are often subject to relatively high levels of uplift from tree roots and subsidence and / or uplift from soil movement.
TripStop is UV and Ozone stabilised and Lead and Cadmium free extrusion that is installed in the concrete during the pour. Its uniquely designed double 'hinge' allows the concrete segments to raise and lower when the earth moves. This ensures that the segments or modules do not displace and create tripping hazards.
TripStop is currently being used in footpaths, bike paths, crossovers and driveways. Basically anywhere you want to control concrete slab displacement is where TripStop should be used.
There are 3 simple reasons that make TripStop the best product in its class...
Due to the simplicity in TripStop's design, there is no way that it can fail if installed correctly. TripStop is also very simple to install.
TripStop has been in testing for decades - We've tested it to its limits in every way imaginable. It's been tested to fail - So that it doesn't
TripStop is designed to last for longer than the path that it's installed in. Once the slab is replaced, the TripStop can even be reused!
This case study was undertaken to measure the impact of TripStop on concrete footpath maintenance and replacement costs.
The City of Knox has installed TripStop as a case study in the prestigious Sutton Lake Estate in Rowville, Victoria.
This installation shows how well TripStop works in urban environments by preserving the unbroken and pristine looks of the pathways over many years. TripStop was installed in multiple locations between 2005 - 2008, with the TripStop treated pathways still enduring the tree laden streetscapes. This installation proves that with the correct planning procedures you can preserve your pathways, whilst saving your council excessive slab replacement and maintenance costs.
These almost self maintaining pathways will ensure that the residents properties retain the high end look expected in such a prestigious area, free from tripping hazards. The massive reduction in the requirements for grinding also limits the exposure of the nature reserve to noxious concrete dust.
