Venetian Pool Deck Expansion Joint — SJS with field-coated coverplate
Las Vegas, NV–The pool deck at any casino is one of the key property attractions. Having a seismic expansion joint run right through it poses functional and aesthetic challenges. The Venetian, facing this problem, found an elegant, functional, and watertight solution in EMSEAL’s SJS System.
Featuring non-invasive anchoring, installation from the deck surface without the need to disrupt the occupied space below, elimination of gutters, and a recessed cover plate, the installation was crowned with the creative application of the pool deck coating beneath and over the cover plates. Attention to detail and coordination sequencing fell to specialty contractor, Expansion Specialties of Henderson, Nevada. Their pride in workmanship is self-evident.
The net result — aesthetic integration of a functional, watertight, seismic expansion joint — was not left to chance.
It is of course better to start out at new construction with EMSEAL as the basis of design for joint systems, but retrofit is possible, practical and lasting and can be staged for minimal disruption. Retrofit can also be phased to suit budget constraints–allowing for gradual upgrade of all joints over time.
Lasting expansion joint solutions in mixed-use, retail, office, sports, assembly, convention, casino, resort, and performing arts venues as well as in retrofit of existing structures is a central focus of EMSEAL’s.
The company’s unique approach to expansion joint treatment combines innovative materials technologies with a fresh look at the roles of owners, designers, general contractors, manufacturers and subcontractors, in achieving trouble-free expansion joints.
The approach is grounded in an integrated, collaborative process centered on joint treatment that requires all of these parties to think, design, detail, specify, construct, fabricate, and install three-dimensional solutions.
