- Expansion joints
Produced at the factories of the Group or its partners, the structural accessories offered by us are also distributed across the five continents and used on the most renowned structures. With an active research and innovation policy, we are constantly improving our products using the best materials and manufacturing processes.
Bridge bearings are devices for transferring loads and movements from the deck to the substructure and foundations. They allow the deck to expand and contract, but retain the deck in its correct position on the substructure.
Expansion joints are assemblies designed to safely absorb the heat-induced expansion and contraction of various construction materials, to absorb vibration, to support traffic load, to be waterproofed, or to allow movement due to ground settlement or earthquakes. Their failure is one of the main causes of bridge substructure and superstructure damage leading to capital repairs and considerable supplementary costs.
