Expansion joints allow structures to accommodate movement. This is essential as movement can be caused by settlement or temperature variations. These joints help to reduce the damage associated with movement including cracking and deformation.
The type of expansion joint to install will take a range of factors into account and will be determined by a structural engineer. Correct sizing and spacing is essential for them to work effectively.
Joint fillers are usually installed in expansion joints. These can be manufactured from a range of materials including fibreboard and foam.
