While we dont make TS125X anymore and have TS125S as a better product this report presents the findings of laboratory tests on TS125X TripStopTM PVC joiners. These tests were conducted in the Heavy Structures Laboratory of the School of Civil, Environmental and Chemical Engineering at RMIT University, Melbourne, Australia. A full-scale prototype residential concrete pavement (footpath / sidewalk) 5m long, 1.5m wide and 125mm thick was cast on a steel testing frame. The testing frame was designed in such a way that the formwork can be removed from underneath the concrete slabs and the slabs can be jacked up from virtually any point – to simulate various scenarios of tree root invasion and soil expansion/movement.
