Expansion Joint Fillerboards
Corkjoint is a specialist in the manufacture, supply and installation of Expansion Joint Fillerboards
Expansion joint fillerboards are a critical component in the construction of large or small-scale projects that involve the installation of concrete slabs or structures. They offer several benefits, including preventing damage, increasing durability, reducing maintenance costs, improving aesthetics, enhancing safety, and providing sound insulation. By choosing the right type of expansion joint fillerboard and installing it correctly, construction professionals can ensure the longevity and structural integrity of their concrete projects, which is essential for maintaining safety, efficiency, and long-term viability.
Expansion Joint Fillerboards are used in expansion or isolation joints in concrete or masonry structures to separate or isolate them to allow for movements and to relieve stress, due to the following reasons:
- Thermal expansion and contraction movements caused by temperature changes
- Settlement or upheaval movements of the substrate
- Serviceability and associated applied loads
- Wind loading and seismic forces
Expansion joints are designed in all types of construction elements and substrates which are subject to many types of conditions. It is very important, that the expansion joint fillerboard specified and used, be the correct type and of a quality that can handle the associated conditions, movements, loadings and chemical resistance requirements, and also support the application of a joint sealant if applied.
