Emseal Movement Joint Systems - Now available in the UK
Emseal movement joint systems and their company strapline of ‘Watertight by Design’, are increasingly well known throughout the world, particularly for sealing wide and high movement structural joints on buildings and civil engineering structures. These systems have originally been well-proven and tested in the harsh North American market, with all its extremes of temperatures and loadings for more than 25 years. This has included installations on almost every different type of structure in new construction, and for refurbishment and in retro-fitting as well. This included several projects in the UK, but on a rather ad-hoc basis and mostly just using the Emseal DSM system, which is an innovative and cost-effective solution for deck joints with limited traffic, such as on multi-storey parking structures.
However, since the end of 2016, the complete range of engineered Emseal Movement Joint Systems has been available throughout the UK, together with the full Emseal Technical Advisory service, on-site training and support, which is exclusively provided by NCC from their Head Office in Chorley (Call 01257 266696 Email: firstname.lastname@example.org) and also through regional offices in Newcastle and Scotland.
Emseal produce virtually tailor-made movement joint sealing solutions for new construction and refurbishment or retrofitting of difficult and complex structural movement joints. The selection and use of Emseal solutions ensures that wide and high movement joints are not only made securely watertight, but they are also made securely resistant to many other service demands such as heavy vehicular traffic or other environmental exposures, whilst also safely and securely accommodating thermal expansion and movement up to 100% (+/- 50%).
Many Emseal systems are also designed to maintain the integrity of fire-proofing, with built-in certified fire-resistance up to 4 hours according to EN 1366-4 (same as BS476) and now with CE Marking too. Where required the Emseal movement joint systems also provide high R values for excellent thermal insulation and high STC and OITC Values for acoustic insulation.
Please take a look at our website for the full range of Emseal solutions for use on your projects, including both horizontal and vertical joints on both external and internal walls, basement slabs and roof structures – In fact - Wherever you need secure, durable, watertight solutions that are also quick and easy to install onsite.
Emseal systems are preformed and bonded in position so there is no need for intrusive mechanical fixings with all their associated time and cost, as well as the potential damage to the structure - Just quick, clean and simple solutions to difficult and complex movement joint sealing requirements.
