Building Expansion Joint

The expansion joint units consist of aluminum alloy frames, aluminum alloy plate (or stainless steel, bronze), middle glide bar, rubber inlaying strip and different special strips. Among of which the rubberized accessories entail superior properties in withstanding aging, resisting deformation& compression, ultraviolet rays and waterproofing. The units service in airport, exhibition center, sport complex, medical center, shopping mall, office building and industrial factories

Description

Foreword

Because of how the world works, buildings move, temperature changes causing buildings to expand and contract. Earthquake activity shifts buildings horizontally, vertically and diagonally. And winds force structures to sway.

To accommodate this movement, buildings must be designed with openings or expansion joints, to absorb the movement. That’s where architectural joint system can help. Architectural joint systems are transitions across these building openings, allowing people and traffic to safely move through the building. These systems are also engineered to move with the building.

The joints units can be classified by building areas:
-Floor/floor expansion joint
-Exterior wall expansion joint
-Interior wall expansion joint
-Ceiling expansion joint
-Roofing expansion joint
-Curtain wall expansion joint

FLOOR TO FLOOR EXPANSION JOINT (Accommodate tiling finish)

Model: FRWS/FRWH

The type of joint system consists of high elastic thermal strips that are inlayed into slots at both sides and the aluminum frame, and the centering plate can move freely as the slide bar turns around. After being installed onto ground, the centering plate can accommodate tiling finish, carpet laying or other finish patterns.

Application case: (Project: Crescent Mall in Ho Chi Minh)

 

Structure:

 

Model: SFFS

  1. With smooth seam and excellent invisibility. Cater to seismic and tremendous movement requirements.
  2. The strips have various colors for choice and which are in good match with finishing layers.
  3. The centering plate can accommodate marble, tiling or other decorative finishing materials.
  4. When earthquake befalls, the slide bar with seismic springs will Receive deformation after being compressed, which pushes the centering plates to ascend along the frame and thus protect the building structure around from being destroyed. Once the power vanishes, it will automatically recover its original position and condition .

FLOOR/FLOOR EXPANSION JOINT (WITHOUT TILING FINISH)

Model: FDM

  1. Smooth, flat and seamless, the plate s move freely.
  2. The plate is made of aluminum or stainless steel that are anodized and abrasion-resistant.
  3. The slide bar is able to recover its original position after being compressed or squeezed.

 

Structure:

 

Model: FM/FGM

  1. Smooth, flat and seamless, the plate s move freely.
  2. The plate is made of aluminum or stainless steel that are anodized and abrasion-resistant.
  3. The slide bar is able to recover its original position after being compressed or squeezed.


 

Structure:

 

Model FHL:

  1. BStrong and durable, possess amazing appearance, convenient installation and repairing.
  2. The movement will be realized through independent centering plate that is located between frames at both sides, when the building moves or deforms, can keep itself being leveled.
  3. The plate surface is shaped with sawtooth which is non-slippery.
