German term or phrase:Querstoesse sind um mehr als 50 cm versetzt anzurodnen
The context is civil engineering. Bitumen sheets are being laid on concrete floors. The German sentence in the query is the last sentence from this paragraph.
An operator-controlled heat source, which uniformly acts on the entire roller width, must be utilized to lay out the sheets on the concrete surface. The epoxy-resin treated surface must not be excessively heated during the process. Bits and pieces should melt off from the APP-bitumen sheet that in rolling out the sheet before the roller a bituminous swelling will ensue. Shortly thereafter, the bitumen sheets are pressed onto the ground mechanically or using a compression wood to achieve complete symmetry in the bonding. Laps made of XXX sheets must be at least 8 cm thick in longitudinal edges and 10 cm thick in transverse edges.
Transverse joints are to alternate at about 50 cm.?
