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.
The system consists of moulded steel reinforced rubber modules for smooth transit between two separate surfaces on the same plane, absorbing expansion and contraction, translation and rotation movements.
The Transflex range is supplied in modules of a given length and is anchored to both sides of the structural joint. All Transflex models offer the possibility to make special pieces for kerbs, walkways, correction of skewed joint and
other contours. In this way, the continuity of the seal is ensured.
