Large Movement Expansion Joints
Intercool our agents in the UAE recently sold large movement expansion joints for Al Khail Avenue and The Hotel in Dubai. The 506-45a Six(6) arch joints designed with oversized arch widths to accommodate 10” of compression, extension and lateral movement. The sizes in the photo below are of the 10”, 12” and 24” in diameter with European standard drilling to PN16 and rated for 180 psi. We supplied anti-squirm guides and compression sleeves to allow for movement but still restrain the expansion joint. Our Engineer Ben Vassallo in the photo is 6’1” so you can see how massive these joints are. The expansion joints were hydro tested @ 270 psi, vacuum tested @15”hg and also tested for movement.
We welcome your challenging projects, not only do we find them interesting but we solve problems for the design team which always leads to future work.
