Express Expansion Joint Shipping

unasphere expansion jointWhen it comes to protecting expansion joints from excessive forces and/or outside elements, it’s a forgone conclusion to perform regular inspections to protect against premature failure.

Elements like subzero temperatures, extreme heat, or where ozone are all major factors for deteriorating outer layers of the expansion joint. Furthermore, accommodating the everyday movement from thermal growth caused by temperature shifts or mechanical growth deteriorate the effectiveness of your expansion joint systems causing underperformance and ultimately failure. Often expansion joint replacements are planned and scheduled but unforeseen failures can occur and can have great impact on your daily operations. Having available stock can be critical to avoiding this problem.
