ECI on new and bespoke contracts via USL TEKSERV.
With more complex and substantial machining demands for projects, Ekspan now operate a state-of-the-art Hurco DCX3226i CNC machine, an essential addition to their in-house manufacturing facilities.
USL Ekspan is the UK's largest quality bearing supplier and installer to meet demands both in the UK and worldwide.
USL Ekspan install an extensive range of mechanical and elastomeric expansion joints and seal joints to CD358 standards.
Bridge jacking and temporary works are an essential part of most bearing replacement and refurbishment operations, ensuring works are carried out safely and efficiently without affecting the integrity of the structure.
The importance of carrying out bearing and expansion joint inspections by proficient and competent engineers who understand their functionality can often be key to maximising a structure’s lifespan and avoiding major, unexpected, emergency repair costs.
USL Ekspan have carried out a number of projects for swing bridges and foot bridges. From design, fabrication of all structural components, to trial erection and final installation. Details of these type of bridge installations can be supplied on request.
Scope Of Work:
USL Ekspan worked with the client to help design and deliver the correct solution for 2no. 35-metre longitudinal expansion joints between carriageway and footways, concrete repairs were required to the deck and watertight joint.
The solution was to use our Britflex NJ 1 type nosing joint with Uniflex secondary membrane. The joint was installed into a narrow, deep trench between an existing kerb and drainage channel. Repairs to the deck were undertaken using our Britflex resin mortar, reducing time and cost to the client.
