Unique design incorporates side
flashing sheet membranes which embed into and are encapsulated with deck waterproofing
membrane to form a
continuous, completely watertight system with a static (not in tension)
integration to the deck membrane.

it works and why to use MIGUTAN instead of a buried type expansion
Heavy-duty aluminum, steel, or stainless steel mounting legs are
coupled to aluminum top rails. Hard-wearing, stainless
steel, gland-retaining capping strips allow long-term maintenance
The MIGUTAN sealing insert and side flashing
sheets are heat-weldable thermoplastic rubber. This ensures
continuity of seal through
transitions in plane and direction as well as at terminations.
Positive interlocking metal rails
or stainless-steel pins
eliminate misalignment between adjoining sections.
Tees, crosses, directional changes, column
details, terminations, and changes in plane are available as
Leg heights from 1" (25mm) to 12"
(400mm) accommodate pavers, asphalt and other toppings.
Exceptional durability under vehicular traffic and extreme
weather and temperature conditions.
Watertight Transitions and Terminations
Anybody can make an
expansion joint watertight in cross-section. The ability
to ensure watertightness through changes in plane, direction and
at changes to other expansion joint technologies is a key
differentiator for EMSEAL.
It is at these
terminations or transitions to other expansion joints in walls
or below grade that joint will inevitably leak.
It is critical in
ensuring watertightness that these conditions be planned for and
addressed wherever possible using factory-fabricated termination
and transition assemblies.
developed a system for the communication of design or field
conditions from which factory made transition and terminations
are reliably and routinely produced.
The following are
a few examples of the thousands of unique and common conditions
for which EMSEAL has manufactured watertight transitions and
termination assemblies in the MIGUTAN FP system.
