Fire-Rated Expansion Joint System for Walls

From EMSEAL Joint Systems Ltd.
EMSEAL Joint Systems Ltd. has developed a UL-certified fire-safety expansion joint system for walls.

Expansion joints bisect buildings to allow for structural movement caused by thermal, wind, seismic and other changes. EMSHIELD WFR2 (which stands for Wall, Fire-Rated, 2-hours) performs all the functions necessary to accommodate these movements in a single installation, reducing the environmental impact while meeting fire-safety and building codes.

Company officials say having one product that accomplishes what several did before will save architects, engineers and contractors the expense, time and effort associated with installing a variety of products to create a fire-rated system.

The new hybrid wall system is designed for buildings, stadiums, arenas, hospitals, schools, universities, hotels and other structures where containment of fire at structural expansion joints is required.
