JOUNTEC GALP structural joints with expansion

JOINTEC GALP aluminium sliding expansion joints are structurally designed to bear loads of large scale buildings or building compounds in wall-to-floor junctions. Installed in the interstitial space between two sections of a building, this technical joint links interspaces, moving three-dimensionally to accommodate a building’s structural and material settlement. The vertical anchoring flange can be installed facing upwards or downwards on the wall, as necessary.

JOUNTEC GALP joints functions

The sliding components of the profile allow horizontal movement and vertical pivoting, while eliminating the accumulation of dirt and dust. The structural bays defined by this profile should be further subdivided with smaller scale movement / expansion joints, chosen according to the expected use and flooring type.

How to install structural joints

INSTALLATION: • Assemble the profile by sliding the two horizontal elements into the lateral flanges. • Carefully align the expansion joint. • Anchor the side flanges in the substrate with appropriate screws, 30cm on center, on both sides of the profile. • Lay mortar bed over the side flanges, and install the tiles as normal.
