Conclusion

Expansion joint systems are an integral and necessary part of many buildings to allow for anticipated movement. They also need to be capable of maintaining a watertight seal when they are used on the exterior of buildings. There are a variety of different types of systems that are each suited to particular conditions. By selecting, detailing, and specifying the proper types of expansion joint systems, design professionals can meet functional requirements while allowing the systems to blend in with the building design.
