Expansion joints

All building materials have a coefficient of expansion that varies with temperature. Materials expand or contract and generate stresses.  Expansion joints absorb these stresses and prevent the formation of cracks, fissures and damage in the future. 

Proper installation and design of expansion joints are essential to ensure the long-term stability and durability of structures. The main objective is to control and manage the natural movements of the building so that they do not adversely affect its integrity.

Specific materials are used to make expansion joints to ensure their durability and performance. FIXCER offers you various solutions for every function.
