FABRIC, METALLIC, PTFE AND RUBBER EXPANSION JOINTS
Assembly designed to safely absorb the heat-induced expansion and contraction of various construction materials, to absorb vibration, to hold certain parts together, or to allow movement due to ground settlement or earthquakes. They are commonly found between sections of sidewalks, bridges, railway tracks, ducting and piping systems, ships, and other structures.
Throughout the year, building faces, concrete slabs, ducts and pipelines will expand and contract due to the warming and cooling through seasonal variation, or due to other heat sources. Before expansion joint gaps were built into these structures, they would crack under the stress induced.
This overall definition of “Expansion Joints” covers a wide range of products. DEKOMTE is specialized in Gas Turbine and CCGT Plants, Conventional Fired Boilers, Steel and Chemical Plants, Refiners, Pipelines, and Renewable Energy applications. DEKOMTE is present in any kind of heavy industry where we can find FABRIC, METAL, PTFE and RUBBER expansion joints.
