EXPANSION JOINT REPAIRS & INSTALLATION
At AWS we provide world-class expansion joint repairs and installation throughout Sydney, Perth and Melbourne. See some of the great projects done by AWS:
- Installation of New Expansion Joints at Federation Square
AWS’ experts installed new expansion joints at Federation Square, Melbourne. This consisted of cutting out and removing all existing expansion joint material, preparing the area by wiping with Isopropyl Alcohol, taping, priming and lightly abrading the surface to ensure adequate adhesion. Supply and install expansion joint with fibregalss/pebble top layer. AWS Services also performed traffic and pedestrian management whilst works are underway.
- Installing and Repair Expansion Joints at Westfield Fountain Gate
AWS has created a system whereby the existing expansion joints do not need to be removed, the combi joint is left in place and a high strength coating is sprayed over the existing combi joint giving it extra strength and waterproofing the expansion joints.
Why Choose AWS Services for Expansion Joint Installation & Repairs
AWS Services can install an expansion joint or movement joint that will safely absorb the heat-induced expansion and contraction of construction materials, absorb vibration, hold parts together, and allow movement due to ground settlement or natural building movements.
Choosing the right mechanical or expansion joint is crucial in protecting your asset. In most cases a mechanical joint is there to accommodate for movement in the concrete structures.
AWS have the expertise to advise on which system should be used in a particular area.
Expansion Joints help to take the movement of concrete structures using spring systems. Expansion joints and mechanical joints are used to ensure the structure has room to move with safety, making sure that it is not a hazard to anyone using the surface of the area by having a cover over the springs. In some cases where a movement joint has not been thought of, AWS can create a joint big enough joint to accommodate a mechanical joint.
