Strip Seal Expansion Joint: Download

ENTERPRISES provides best Strip Seal Expansion Joints in Hyderabad Strip Seal Expansion Joints consist of 2 edge beams of elastomeric sealing element and anchorages in order to ensure the water tightness of the joint. Strip seals uses have successful performances records all over several years. We use monolithic edge beam, so stability and life of the products increases and also we use tough neoprene rubber  Strip as the water barrier in the gap which has the very high life time. These edge beams which protects from damages will cause due to transfer vehicular load to the deck structure. We are appreciated among our clients for low maintenance, sturdy construction and also for high efficiency. High-class materials as per IS and MoRTH Specificaiton are used in order to fabricate these Strip Seal Expansion Joints in order to make it strong and also durable.


Sandhya Enterprises  which is well Known for ManBridge Expansion Joint Gap 40.0mm (Movement up to 80mm). Bridge Expansion Joint consist of two edge beams with anchorages and with Neoprene sealing element held firmly in the housing of edge beams that guarantee the water tightness the joint. The maximum gap between the edge beams at the road surface when the joint fully opens due to maximum contractions of the deck shall be limited to 80mm for comfortable passage of traffic. The edge beams protects the adjacent bridge deck concrete from damage due to vehicular impact and also transfer the vehicular loads to the deck structures through robust anchorage system. Typical Bridge Expansion Joint is shown in the figure below.
