ARE EXPANSION JOINTS ESSENTIAL?
In the building construction process, expansion joints, wall expansion joints, fire barriers, and fire rated expansion joints are essential because they are designed to relieve stress on building materials.
Stress on building materials is caused by thermal expansion, contraction caused by temperature changes, sway caused by wind, static load deflection, live load deflection, and seismic activities.
The gap between walls, decks, slabs, roofs, fire rated joints, and other materials needs to be filled for fire-proofing and waterproofing. When these gaps are filled, it can also soundproof the expansions and work as an air and fire barrier.
To put into simpler terms—Expansion joint systems are used to bridge and fill the gaps between building assemblies, while also accommodating expected calamities and movements.
In other words—it keeps the integrity of a structure and keeps people safe.
