High performance technical expansion joint cover
JOINTEC GDM - Aluminium body structural expansion joint with synthetic rubber insert. Designed to bear structural movements of large sized buildings or compounds of buildings. To be installed on pre-existing surfaces, also vertically, over the spaces existing between two semi-detached parts of a building of smaller entity or between different beam bays. They can connect and close these interspaces adjusting themselves up-wards, downwards and even transversely, according to the shrinkage-settlement movements of the whole building, either cyclic or permanent. Within the bay frame created with the structural joints, a further surface subdivision with a suitable pattern of movement / expansion joints should be always provided for.
