MIGUTRANS PROFILES
SPECIAL PIECES OF CONNECTION AND INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS

On the sub-base on both sides of the joint must be made two riddles (15 cm width) by resin-bonded mortar for resistance to high compressive loads. Riddles’ height has to permit superior side of the profile is few mm below finished floor thread.
Then the profile has to be placed on a thin layer of fresh epoxy (a few mm) and slightly pressed so that any holes remains between profile wings and riddles. After this in set, the side plates of the profiles are doweled and screwed to the base at the side of the joint by means resin bonded anchors, alternatively in external and intermediate holes of brackets.
Care must be taken that the profile is absolutely straight so that the tiles or sheet flooring materials will be exactly flush with the edge of the profiles. Fixings are made at distances of 30 cm.
The profiles are adjusted to the average width by means of distance pieces in our works (see the picture). After screwing the aluminium mounting brackets to base, these distance pieces must be removed. The profile will only fulfil its functions satisfactorily if the side plates are fixed in such a way that no movement can occur between them and the sub-base. Adjoining lengths of profile are connected by sliding the individual section into each other.
For all series FS 50/..., FS 135/..., FS 200/..., FSN 50/..., it is important that single bars are disposed in the same direction on the joint. To do that, please, verify sticky arrows on the protection type over the upper part of the profile are oriented in the same direction. If profiles are installed in magnesite floors; those parts of the aluminium in contact with the magnesite must be protected by painting with Bitumen Epoxidic-paint. On request we can deliver prefabricated welded angle, cross and T-pieces.

Load capacity Test is certified for FS 100
Carried on with simulation of hard wheel (diam 200 mm, width 80 mm, load per wheel 1 ton) for 100.000 consecutive passess, then polyamide wheel (diam 85 mm, width 90 mm) for 130.000 consecutive passess. At the end of the test no alteration of the profile where noticed
