Permaban Signature

Permaban Signature’s clever half-hexagon shape (called ‘disruptive face’ technology) prevents the wheels of materials handling vehicles from dropping into the gap between the two edges of the joint. Because there’s no impact there’s no damage to either the joint or the vehicle, so floor and vehicle maintenance costs are dramatically reduced.

The latest evolution of the joint, Signature II (shown right), is built from glass reinforced nylon (GRN).  A strong yet lightweight composite, this makes the joint easy to handle and install. The manufacturing process also ensures exceptional product accuracy and consistency.



  • Half-hexagon shape prevents impact damage.
  • Unique full-depth corrugation means the top of the joint is fully supported underneath, for maximum strength and stability.
  • Operates with large gap sizes (up to 40mm) – making it ideal for large-bay jointless concrete floors.
  • Can be approached from any angle, even 90°, so suitable for directional traffic situations.
  • Helps reduce noise and vibration impact on forklift drivers*
  • Square dowel bars for load transfer are provided. These are easily clipped into the product to ensure accurate installation and to prevent vertical movement and also horizontal movement in the GRN product). Dowel sleeves allow lateral movement.
  • Supplied as one unit for easy handling and installation - the two sides are connected with frangible bolts which separate naturally after installation.
  • Supplied in 1.2m lengths, for easier handling, plus economical packing and shipping.
  • Considerably lighter than traditional metal joints, so easier to handle and install.
  • Allows flexibility in future building use.
  • Available in heights of 125mm, 150mm and 175mm.
  • Supplied in a dark grey colour to blend discreetly into the slab. 



  • Suitable for a wide range of applications.  Particularly suitable for directional traffic situations (such as transfer and racking aisles in distribution centres) where materials handling vehicles pass over the joint at 90°.
  • Ideal for cold stores, where larger joint gap sizes are common.
  • Suitable for use internally and across doorways - resistant to rusting.
  • Signature II (GRN material) is suitable for external use.

important note: signature galvanised product

While we continue to develop the GRN product in further sizes, the original Signature joint in galvanised steel will be supplied for heights other than 125mm, 150mm, and 175mm.  Signature galvanised is supplied in 2.1m lengths.  Straight dowel bars are supplied with this product, which allow lateral movement and some horizontal movement, but not vertical movement.  Please refer to the specification sheet for load transfer calculations – these are the same for both versions of the product.  In case of any queries, please contact our technical sales team.


other products in the Signature family

  • Signature AR – the repair and upgrade system for damaged straight joints in existing floors.
  • SignatureSlide – a sliding plate joint, ideal for post-tensioned floors and for where the joint gap cannot be exposed.


* Specifying Signature for new builds and upgrading existing floors with Signature AR enables employers to eliminate joint impact, one of the major causes of noise and whole body vibration that MHE operators are subjected to. This can greatly assist in compliance to Control of Noise at Work Regulations 2005 under the Noise at Work Directive 2003/10/EC and Control of Vibration at Work Regulations 2005 under the European Physical Agents (Vibration) Directive (2002/44/EC), in addition to maintaining MHE speeds and reducing back injuries to operators.


All our products comply with the Construction Products Regulation (Regulation (EU) No. 305/2011), and hold appropriate CE marking.
