8 Building Locations for Expansion Joints

Expansion Joint LocationsA relief joint slices through a building like cutting a section. In doing so, the joint encounters many different systems and materials. It is necessary to account for all these conditions and the factors effecting the joint: traffic (floor), moisture (exterior) as well as fire and sound separation.

Below are the eight common locations for expansion joints.

  1. Floors and Parking Decks
  2. Interior Walls
  3. Ceilings
  4. Exterior Walls
  5. Floor-to-Wall
