JOINTEC GDM structural joints in aluminum and rubber

JOINTEC GDM aluminum structural expansion joints are composed of twin metal profiles joined by a central synthetic rubber insert. Designed to bear loads of large scale buildings or building elements, they can be installed vertically or horizontally in the interstitial space between two sections of a building or between two bays. This technical joint links these interspaces, moving vertically and horizontally to accommodate a building’s structural and material settlement. The structural bays should be further subdivided with smaller scale movement joints, chosen according to the expected use and flooring type.
