EXPANSION JOINTS

Elastomeric reinforced joints for roads are designed to enable service displacements up to 330 mm (±165 mm) with respect to the bridge decks they are fastened to. Entirely waterproof, they are secured to the structure with suitable anchor bolts. The deformable rubber elements are vulcanised with rolled steel reinforcements made up of two angular plates and a bridge plate. The joints also allow displacement of the structure’s parts relative to each other in any direction.
