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.
This system has been developed to provide an effective method of sealing longitudinal expansion gaps and soffits.
The joint can accommodate both longitudinal and vertical movement; the 'LJ' Joint also provides a substantially watertight seal to non-trafficked gaps between structures and is available in two sizes depending on the requirements of the individual project.
The 'LJ' Expansion Joint System has the flexibility to be used as a waterproof cover joint or alternatively as a drainage channel under joint with the facility to install drainage outlets into the system where required.
