Seismic expansion joint
JOINTEC GS - Modular high width structural joints as provided by standards for seismic risk areas. The remarkable width to cover reduces their load resistance, they are nevertheless suitable for pedestrian and small trolleys passage, like stretchers or supermarket trolleys. They are installed over the spaces existing between two semidetached 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 transversally, according to the shrinkage-settlement movements of the whole building, either cyclic or permanent.
