Expansion Joint Cover Systems

Description: An expansion joint is a structural gap designed to accommodate the movement of a building in a controlled manner, preventing damage to the internal and external finishes of a building. Expansion joints run throughout a building, in walls, ceilings, and floors. Expansion joint covers provide a covered transition across an expansion opening and remain unaffected by the relative movement of the two surfaces either side of the joint. This course explains how to determine joint movement requirements and how to size a joint. It also discusses the performance of different expansion joint cover systems and the applicable fire protection and building codes.
