Expansion Joints

Allowing Structures to Move

An expansion joint is a mid-structure separation designed to relieve stress on building materials caused by building movement induced by thermal variations, winds, seismic events, static and live load deflection.

The lack of an expansion joint can hamper or destroy the integrity of the facility, or cause damage to the structural or architectural components.  If properly designed, expansion joints can accommodate the movement of building materials, preventing cracking and other damage.
