New C/S Allway® guide has gaps covered
Construction Specialties (C/S) has published a new –technical brochure, C/S Allway® Expansion Joint Covers, to equip specifiers and contractors with everything they need to know about the design, selection, specification and installation of covers for all types of interior and exterior expansion joints.
Expansion joints are essential to protect enable a building structure to accommodate multi-directional movement, whether it be horizontal, vertical or lateral. This new brochure provides a comprehensive guide to C/S’s range of joint cover solutions, each of which have been precision engineered to deliver the best possible aesthetic finish without compromising performance parameters such as wheeled traffic usage and fire or moisture integrity.
The brochure includes guidance for floor, wall and ceiling options, internal and external, providing sophisticated solutions for a variety of situations and budgets.
Andy Moul, C/S Allway Product Manager said: “For over 40 years we have developed the most comprehensive range of expansion joint covers in the world. Expansion joints are a critical element of a building; getting them wrong can have a catastrophic impact, which means specifiers need to be fully armed with as much information as possible.
We have produced this brochure to provide a single comprehensive guide to getting expansion joint covers right – in every application.”
C/S tests its products in ‘real life’ conditions, at its in-house full scale testing facility - the only one of its kind in the industry.
It also offers professional installation through its fully trained in-house installation team, Conspec Contracts, who are CHAS and SAFEContractor accredited.
As well as expansion joint covers, the brochure includes essential information on optional extras such as fire barriers, moisture barriers and acoustic barriers, which ensure that the finish of the expansion joint cover is entirely suited to its environment and in line with the relevant requirements for the building.
