CONTROL, MOVEMENT & EXPANSION JOINTS

 

Control, movement or expansion joints are an important part of good building practice. They are used to allow for movement and expansion and stop unsightly cracking. When we incorporate a control joint into fire rated walls or fire rated floor slabs, these control joints must incorporate fire rated materials to provide an AS tested fire rated control joint system.
