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.
Finger type expansion joints are made up of fabricated or cast steel fingers and can be fitted mechanically as either continuous or modular sections in order to provide different options for clients needs.
They are very robust joints recommended for high performance requirements imposed by heavy traffic flows and movements on highways, accommodating both horizontal and vertical movements, and rotations.
