TS Type Vekkon Expansion Joints
Expansion joints are integrated with bridge decks in order to accom modate the relative movement between the structure’s segments, as well as the movement between the superstructure itself and support abutmets. Such movements is the result of thermal expansion and contraction, creep and shrinkage of concrete, substructure settlement, live dynamic loads and other causes.
As a result of further advanced research and development, VEKKON’s single cell joints are manufactured using high quality steel rails that ensure a watertight interlocking mechanism by using a neoprene seal. What makes VEKKON’s Single Cell Joints so unique is the additional protection it prodives to underlying structures such as abutments.
VEKKON’s Single Cell Joints have been extensively tested by Mechanical Engineering department of Middle East Technical University to ensure resistance to fatigue.
