summarizes (without sound), the basic installation steps of the
SYSTEM from the point that the substrates have been prepared to
receive the system.
The SJS--Seismic Joint System for parking decks is a first of its
kind, watertight, high-movement, sound attenuated,
non-invasively-anchored trafficable expansion joint.
Ease of installation is among the
SYSTEM's many unique features. In contrast to predecessor
multi-component rail, gutter, and plate systems, the SJS from EMSEAL
installs without any hard, metal-metal, or metal-to-concrete anchors
With a 5-year track record of successful performance and tens of
thousands of feet installed, the SJS SYSTEM marks a significant
breakthrough in options for lasting, watertight parking deck and
stadium expansion joint treatment. The
RandD goals for the
SYSTEM from EMSEAL were: 1) Watertight; 2) Traffic and Load
Durable; 3) no invasive anchors; 4) no hard connections to concrete;
for joint openings larger than 4-inches (100mm); and 5) Quiet.
